    For some reason my phone will vibrate and do the "new email" sound randomly. Seriously, something like every 5 or 10 minutes, the notification will go off, but the number on my mail app hasn't changed. It's bugging the hell out of me. I've checked the settings and there's no "reminder" setting (kinda like the iPhone's SMS reminder, if you didn't read an SMS when you first got it, it would vibrate and make a noise to remind you), so I don't know why it's doing this. :mad:

    Help plzkthx :(

    Have you checked to see if that sound has been assigned to a different task? Something else could be happening (such as a text, signal notification, etc) that has that is also using that sound.

    Well it doesn't help that there's no way to use a custom sound for mail, it just uses whatever you have set for the system sound. :(

    I just changed the main system sound and sent myself an email and it's using the new sound. I'll see in 5 or 10 minutes if it keeps doing it.
  4. could be your gmail.

    Yup, it just did the noise again. I have a notification in the menu bar saying new email at 1:04, but when I touch it and open the mail app, my last email was at 12:56. :mad:

    This is getting annoying as hell. :mad:

    Whattaya mean? My actual gmail account?

    I just realized, I use the Mail app, not the GMail app...

    I always wondered why I had two different "new email" icons in the menu bar. :p

    I turned off notifications in the GMail app, so hopefully that fixed it.

    Thanks sitlet! :D

    just wondering if there has been a solution to this issue.
    my wife and i would also like to stop the email "reminder" thing. i know we could just shut off the email notifications, but i like to know when an email comes in. it's just that reminder that we'd like to dump.
    any ideas?

    my phone only blinks the led for mail. open your mail and press menu - more - settings - notification settings and uncheck anything you don't want. just leave email notifications checked for led only. the phone only reminds you once anyway right?

    you may have to check this for each account.. gmail, sbc, work, etc.

    you could try a 3rd part app to see if you can the reminder setting.
