    Found the problem!!!

    "I cannot get rid of the crappy lame default notification tone. I've used ALL the options suggested in these pages, but I cannot get anything but a combination of my selected custom sound AND the default sound. Ugly.
    When I go into the 'set notification sound' option, using SMS/Menu/Settings/Notifications/set notification sound (for example), a brief
    screen shows only 'Default Notification' and a red dot indicating it is selected (NO way to change that behavior). That quickly changes to show all my custom sounds; I pick a short mp3 that I like (it plays just fine), select it, back out, and off.
    When I get a text message, my custom notification sound plays for about one second, then the tail-end of the (lame) 'default' sound.

    OK - thanks for the many suggestions. I found the problem - it WAS a piece of bad-acting software, which I installed about a week ago, way back when I was REALLY a Noob - The problem was Ringdroid and Ringo Lite. When those two were uninstalled, the problem went away.
    BTW - the helpful post in another thread by Ann154, about where to put sounds - was also a big help.

    Now I can specify exactly which sound the phone uses - including my side-loaded custom sounds. Phone seems to want mainly mp3's, tho.

    OK for now, time to close the thread, and hope it helps someone else.

    By the way, I had a problem uninstalling Ringo Lite. During the uninstall, a spammy web page loaded in the browser, an obvious PHISHING form asking for all kinds of personal info.

    REALLY unsure about this program. I got it from cnet, don't see it on the Market.

    Just saying what happened, draw your own conclusions.

    I had a different but equally weird problem that cropped up after the recent update. My Rezound would beep after every SMS I sent (when the recipient received it). I had sent notification and failure notification checked but play notification sound was unchecked. I unchecked all 3 boxes to no avail. Finally, I checked the notification sound box and selected a tone, pressed apply and then unchecked the box and pressed apply again and it stopped. The only problem not is I don't get the check mark in the SMS message indicating it was received. I think the update created some weird bug in the SMS app because it worked fine before.
