    You have to go to your email app of choice and change the ringtone in the settings there, not the system settings. So you'd probably hit the menu button and select 'settings' and there should be a notification tone option. Same with messaging if you would want to change the text message tone as well.

    If you're using the stock email app, there is nothing in the app settings that allows a sound change...I hate that damn bell. I've searched every nook of this phone!

    Its under account settings when you hit the menu button. Then touch your account, then when the settings menu pops up, select the ringtone under notification settings. Gmail is similar.

    You select by account, so you can assign different ringtones to multiple email accounts.

    Thank you, thank you both... That one did it. I had actually gone there many times, but the screen is missleading cause when I saw the email acc with a blue check mark at the end, I thought that selecting it would just uncheck the acc and unselect it, so I completely bypassed them not thinking the settings would be there!

    At least I'm glad to get rid that annoying bike bell...!!!

    Thanks! I too have been looking for that since being forced to update my T-Mobile Galaxy S2 to 4.1.2 in order to fix a few other issues (especially Wi-Fi calling). The bell was very annoying. I have 6 email accounts and now have a different tone for each! Yippee!!!.
