    Setting different notifications for email/text

    This may be somewhat redundant to other questions but all I want to do is set different notification sounds for when a message vs a new email arrives. On my TouchPro I could set different sounds for different types of notifications. As far as I can tell the only thing you can do is set a global notification ringtone or sound? I need to hear different notifications for the different incoming item types. I've tried to do it through the individual applications but doesn't work. Driving me crazy!

    Thanks!

    If you go to Settings>Sound & display settings, you will see "Notification ringtone" which allows you to set your DEFAULT tone. This will be the tone that plays when the unlock screen appears upon bootup, when the device is powering off, when it's connected to your computer, etc. You can, however, set an alternate notification tone within the applications themselves. For instance:

    Go into Messaging, press the menu key and select Settings. Scroll down to the bottom and you'll see "Notificaton settings." pick "Select ringtone," select something and when you get a text, it'll play. You can also do the same thing by going into your Gmail, Email, and GTalk settings. Just make sure that the Email notifications box is checked. I have my Gmail and Email on Silent otherwise my phone would go off all night. No reason why this shouldn't work for you.

    You can try out the Missed Call app from the market also, it customizes LED lights also.

    THANK YOU! I was beginning to believe this simple feature didn't exist.

    "Set it via the app" applies in most cases.

    You could give WhoIsIt a try. It allows you to set contact-specific ringtones for Gmail, SMS and MMS. You can also specify VIP contacts that will cause notifications even if your phone is on silent.

    i hate to dig up an old topic, but i am having difficulty figuring out how to assign each email account its own ring tone. this is critical for me as i normally dont look at my phone for email unless one account that is set up to receive URGENT only messages.

    is there a way to set up custom ring tones for each email account rather than just one default one overall for all email or texts?

    thanks
