    OK... This is my wifes phone. Samsung infuse. She is coming from an iphone 3 and she and i are a little lost on these couple of things.

    1. We have downloaded several apps to try and get different ( louder ) SMS tones, songs anything.....
    She works in a loud enviroment and she can not hear ANY of the pre loaded notifications.

    all of the apps say set as notification and it does change the email alert but we want and need the text message aleart to change.
    Please help us with this in DETAIL we are both newbs when it comes to the droid user interface....
    Thank you in advance.

    I do not have your device but you might try opening the text program and then hit menu and see if there is a setting in there to set a notification. If not I'd try looking in your general settings under sounds or something similar. Somewhere between the two you should be able to set the txt notification.

    If hearing the sounds is difficult, then try a bluetooth headset. She'll hear everything right inside her ear.

    I know this may sound too obvious, but did you go into Account Settings and set the volume level up for notifications? Settings>Sounds>Volume>Notifications (although mine seems to keep resetting DOWN for some reason, maybe because I keep clearing the RAM a lot, I don't know).

    I'm pretty sure this is the problem. The notification volume is set pretty low out of the box. I thought the same thing when i did a custom notification. I could barely here it. Then I adjusted the volume for notifications much higher and it was pretty loud.

    Not sure if you have figured this out or not yet. But, to set the ringtones for the SMS/ Messaging alone,
    Open up Messaging:
    Click on the Setting Button at the bottom left of the phone,
    Click on Settings:
    Scroll to the bottom:
    You will see Select Ringtones.

    This will allow you to set ringtones just for the SMS messaging.

    Hope this helps.

    i use an application called RingoLite. But to use it, you need Rings Extended. That way you can set all tones to whoever and however. Also, I use a website called Ringtones, MP3s, Wallpapers, Videos and more from Myxer.com to make personalized ringtones. The ringtone will be texted to your phone, and downloaded through your phone's browser.
