    For e-mail, I use No audible alert, just the LED indication.

    For text, I use any audible alert that is short and quite, in addition to LED notification.

    I know, I'm boring. But if I had it set up otherwise, my phone would be blowing up constantly. For phone calls... I use "cool" ringers though! :)

    No alert for email

    Power rangers communicator for Text.

    It's hilarious to watch people try and figure out what the sound is, everyone's heard it before but they can never place their thumb on from where.

    No alert for email. For text I use "You got the wrong guy, I'm the Dude" from The Big Lebowski. :)

    I used a Shortened "Anticipation" from the Pre for email. It reminds me of the "This just in" kind of sound for news reports.

    I use "Boss you have a text message" for my text notifications. I tell everyone that it's the only way I get anyone to call me Boss.

    Ringtone is a cut from Toes by the Zac Brown Band.

    I usually set all my notifications to the same sound. I used the old "Message for you, Sir" from Monty Pythons Holy Grail complete with the arrow sound.

    My newer one however is the Droiiiiid sound mashed together with the Transformers "opening" transformation sound. I custom made it the other day, sounds pretty good together. Something different.

    My ringer is the chorus from "Hey You" by 311. I usually make my own ringers however with Audacity which is what I used to make the "DroidTransformer" tone.

    What format is the best for use with ringers and notification sounds? .MP3? .WAV?
    Explain your details, if you can, please.

    I use the MP3 format. Not many details to tell with it really. Audacity is a free software that makes it easy to cut songs down to whatever portion you want to use. There are step by step instructions floating around the net. I cut mine down to about 30 seconds then export as the MP3 and its all good. Just drag and drop into a ringers folder inside the notifications folder.

    Now, with Audacity you have to download a separate lame.dll file. Again, instructions for that floating around as well. None of it is overly difficult. I know there are other options out there that are probably much simpler but I started using this back when I had my Motorola Q phones so I'm just used to it.

    for messaging I use "saymyname dessert" free from the market...as indicated, it says the person's name who is texting you. I like this because I don't have to look at the phone to see if I want to look at the text message. It has several settings to customize what it says. You can use it for calls and email too.

    Help!!! I have been a dedicated iPhone user for 3 years...but, am testing the droid. So far it outshines the iPhone. However i am having trouble with responding to my texts. I need more than one loud reminder and the notification light. Can I program it to give me three audiable alerts?
  22. You can do this with handcent. handsent>settings>notification settings>notification settings (again)>enable reminders.
  23. Mine says "HEY THERE'S SKITTLES IN THERE!!!!!!".
