    I just upgraded from a Droid X to the Thunderbolt HTC and cannot see any way to make incoming text notification sounds different than incoming gmail sounds.

    Am I missing something or does anyone recommend an ap on this phone that will do this?

    In the messages app go to settings and change the notification sound.

    Ok, looks like that works - thanks!

    I just found another way - figures I'd find it after posting the question -

    From home screen select Menu, then Settings, then Personalize, then Notification Sound.
    From there you can set tones separately for Messages, Email and Calendar!

    You can also create folders on your SD card named "Alarms", "Ringtones" and "Notifications" and put sounds in each that you want to use for those, and they will show up in the appropriate lists.

    I use a "gong" for my alarm clock, a sample of the "Jeopardy" theme for my calendar reminders, "message for you, sir" for my text messages, and blackberry "Eager Remix" (the DC Metro door chime) for my e-mail.

    if you want to go one step further and customize the tone depending on who sent you the text, you can do that too. I posted a link here: Can't seem to modify my sms notification sound
