    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.

    OK that would the the stock messaging app. You can download Handcent. Are you able to change the sounds for email, phone, or contacts?

    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...

    Did that work? It is late and I am tired so I'm signing off for the night. If you are still having issues with the original messaging keep looking for the notification settings.

    That would be the stock app. Just like using the dialer part of the phone you're using the stock dialer app. :)

    Main Menu, sounds, notifications, silent will turn off all notifications like stock text app , email, etc. so set that one to the text tone you want .
    To stop double notifications with handcent go into its menu , notification settings , turn notification sound to silent.
    If you want to have a different tone for individual contacts texts get an app called Ringo. It lets you set up individual tones for both calls and texts for your individual contracts in 1 app instead of this app for this that app for that.
