Text Message Notification Sound?
New android user, new to the forum.
I'm trying to change the sound of my text message alert, but I'm not having any luck. I believe the correct pathway into settings is:
Settings > Sound > Notification ringtone > whichever sound I choose......
However, whichever sound I choose isn't retained. It's as if the sound I chose the first day I had my SGS2 is permanently chosen.
I have downloaded many other tones / alerts etc... and they play appropriately.
I have stored those files in my phone at: /sdcard/media/
Not sure what I'm doing wrong, but any guidance would be appreciated.

Re: Text Message Notification Sound?
You can set one main default notification ringtone, but then you can assign different notification ringtones for your email app, messaging app, etc. Personally, I use WhoIsIt. It doesn't work for gmail anymore since google stopped allowing 3rd party apps access, but it's a great tool for assigning ringtones and notification ringtones to specific contacts. It also allows me to set certain people up as priority, like family, so that my phone will ring whether it's in silent mode or not. This way, while I set my phone to silent at night, if one of my family members calls or messages me, my phone will ring. You can try it out for free from the market. I hope this helps a little.
