So I just got my Ally and am liking it so far. At the verizon store, the salesgirl installed my Yahoo email for me in the back room, which I wasn't all sorts of crazy about when my phone started blinging and blonging all the time whenever I got an update from Facebook, not to mention the Facebook updates on the phone itself. Yikes!
All I wanted was to check my email when I felt like it, and not get fooled into thinking I had a text message, because there's no way to differentiate "text" notification sound from "email" notification sound. :P
So I went through my settings and tweaked anything that seemed like it would work. And it did, my Ally only makes noise when I'm getting a phone call now. But I want to know when I'm getting texts, too!!!
I have notifications set to on. I have all ringer volumes all the way up. I do have a ringtone set up for it that I put on my SD card from my computer, but like I said, it was working a couple days ago and driving me nuts.
I'll happily bring it back and just uninstall the Yahoo email app, if that's what it'll take... I just want a tone when I get my texts!!!
