    Hi sorry if this has been posted before, im having an issue with the text message notifications or at least the whistle anyway, when i get a text sometimes its fine but recently at random i get half the whistle, a quarter, nothing at all, a few milliseconds of the whistle usually decreasing in length over consecutive messages??
    My friend has the galaxy note and is also suffering the same problems...
    any1 have an idea?

    Cheers ive found 1 that sudgests its to do with message limits and long conversations, have to say when i deleted the conversations the other day it did re appear and worked fine, does it do the same with any notification like an mp3 etc?

    Yeah i've changed my notification to a few different things and had the same issue with all of them.

    I was having a similar problem. I did a little research and found out that the app ChatOn was causing the problem. I shut down that app and rebooted my phone and have had no further problems.

    This was going to be my question to you.

    Have you installed any other new apps SINCE you have noticed this happening? There might be a conflict in the MediaStream that tells the phone to play a notification sound that is causing yours to be cut off.

    My phone started doing this today. I have no third party apps associated with the notification tone.
    Will be watching this thread with interest for a solution.

    I noticed that with mine as well. I thought that maybe it does that because the proximity sensor sensed that someone was near so cut off the sound? Just speculation really
