    I am unable to change the Preset Notification sound on my Droid Incredible. It says that it is a different sound but it still sounds like the old one. Please Help me, this is getting really annoying!

    Also, If it is possible, Can I get some help getting custom notifications for my phone?

    Welcome to the Forum! I have a Droid so my experience may be different.

    Open the app, tap menu, tap settings, tap notifications, tap ringtone. Additionally, I can tap menu, tap setting, tap notification, tap ringtone.

    That is what I have been doing. It Says that I have changed the sound, But it doesnt actually change it.

    This is all preset sounds. I had it on Chiff and changed it to Guitar2.
    Still sounds like chiff no matter what I do.

    If your attempts to modify the app have not been successful try Handcent. It is a free app in the Market.

    so you can change the phone ringtone and add a special ringtone to contacts. Good!

    Handcent is an messaging app free in the market. Open the market and search for handcent.

    Okay I have handcent now and is working great. The problem now is I get messages from both handcent and my regular message system. Which means I also get the old annoying notification sound and the sound I want at the same time...

    Open the text app that you were using prior to Handcent. Tap menu, tap settings, tap notifications and turn off
