    Changing to custom text msg 'notification' sound - impossible?

    Have a new Rezound with recent OTA update. Have rebooted, finally got it all working, I thought. No rooting, etc.

    But - 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.

    I've gone into this setting from various menu points, as suggested in these pages. NONE of them correct the problem. I've rebooted, no help.

    One person here suggested making sure 'default notification' was not selected - but there does not appear to be any menu item that allows changing that, however.

    I would be very grateful for any suggestions. Many thanks in advance,

    You can always try a factory reset.
    Helpful Rezound Links:
    Guide to Unlocking, Rooting, ROM'ing, and FAQ

    Did you know: You can upgrade your Rezound to ICS without rooting?

    Fun Rezound Fact: The antennas for the Rezound are in the battery cover.

    Don't forget to backup your flash player install before they remove it from the Android Market.

    If you don't understand something, ask questions.

    Thanks, yeah, I thought about that. I don't want to go thru all the reinstalls and reloading, but it may come to that. Richard

    That's one of the first things I tried. As I said, the 'default' button comes up, all alone, then switches to a list of custom songs I've installed, all of which play just fine all alone. Apparently 'both' the default AND the selected custom song are trying to play at message notification, no matter what I do.
    There *is no* 'deselect default' option.
    Thanks for your reply tho.

    My bad i have a habit of scanning thru without actually reading. Im not so sure a factory reset will cure your ails though it sounds software related if you plan on keeping it stock i would take it to Verizon if not unlock and try a rom i had a issue with the ringer volume tapering down as it rang on the stock rom

    Did you disable notifications for your stock messaging app?

    Thanks for suggestion. I looked in messages/settings/notifications; all the relevant checkboxes are checked - show notification, play sound, my selected sound, etc.
    I thought it might be something like this that I've overlooked, and appreciate the comment.

    Sorry, I thought I read you were using go sms. Do you have more than one messaging app installed?
