    I have only had my Hero for a couple of days but am quickly become frustrated. Is there any way to change the notification sound with incoming texts? Also, every time I receive and incoming text my phone also vibrates. I absolutely hate this! I've looked under notifications and can't find any way to change this. I'm about to pay the restocking fee and get a new phone.

    Menu > Settings > Sounds & Display

    From there you can click Vibrate on/off and select the various ringtones for texts or calls.

    Edit: Welcome to the forums.

    Thanks for replying stinky. I've tried that about 15 times and can't get it to work. I'm trying to avoid a trip to the Sprint store. The vibrate box is unchecked and I've changed my notification ringtone. I still have a text ringtone that I didn't choose and it continues to vibrate when I get an incoming text. I've even turned the phone off and on.
