This is all new to me. I gave up my Palm Centro for a Droid last week and it's killing me. I get 50-60 emails a day and am getting constant notifications. I need my phone to ring and audible notification when I get text messages. I searched online and followed directions -- went to the email section and set ringtone to silent and unchecked status bar notifcation - no luck. Clicked on a forum link and some guy wants me to pay him $15 to tell me how to turn off the notifications. I'm not sure how this forum works but I can't afford a phone where I have to pay every time I need an answer.
