    I've noticed for several months that I have not been receiving audible alerts when I get text messages - which has obviously caused me to miss numerous messages. I "think" I fixed this in the settings, but now I'm inundated with the same alert every 5 minutes letting me know that I have another email. I can't see a method in settings to only audibly notify for specific alerts - it's everything or nothing, as far as I can see. Does anyone know how to handle it, either within the settings or with an app? I already have Timeriffic which mutes all the alerts at night, but I specifically only want text message alerts to be heard throughout the day and not the countless emails I get. It seems like a pretty normal request, I can't imagine others wouldn't want the same thing.

    You can use the menu to set general alert sounds. Go into each individual app then at the home screen of each app hit menu - settings then you can select what type of notification you want.
