    I just got this Galaxy S III and so far I am not liking it much. I did like that you could download sounds for the notification. I set to sound for my text message to one I downloaded and it does play when I get a text message. However, right after it plays the Samsung whistle plays. I cannot find anywhere to turn that off.

    Any ideas?

    Are you referring to text messages or e-mail notifications?

    Did you install any other sms app like gosmspro or anything? If so you have to go into one or the other and disable notifications in the settings menu

    Text message and I have added any programs. One tone is the one I added and the other is the one that came with the phone.

    Open the messaging app that came installed and press the menu key. Tap the settings button Scroll down until you see notification settings and uncheck notifications

    The stock messaging app won't inform you of the message and it wont pop up but the third party app will notify you and it will pop up.

    I think he mis-typed and does not have a 3rd party SMS app.

    No other programs. I turned all of the sounds off and I am still getting the whistle.
