    I want to turn off Gmail audible notifications so I go to the settings and the only option for notifications is the checkbox to notify in status bar when email arrives (which I want), however, when I click on sound & vibrate below, I can not turn off the default whistle. When I click on the whistle sound, it only brings up the window to find other sounds?



  2. At the top of that list in /sound/notifications is "silent." Check that and be sure to individually configure other apps/widgets that you need notifications sounds for (phone, weather alerts, social networking, etc).

    If I understand you and you're only trying to turn off your notification tone for your gmail, simply open your gmail, press the menu button (left of the home button) > settings > Sound and Vibrate > Sound > select "Silent"

    Hope this helps
  4. If that's the case, the setting for sound and vibrate will be listed in the menu under each account name, not the general settings area. ;)
