    My email and text notifications are not making any sounds. I need to restart the phone to get them to work again. Any ideas?

    Every time I get an email it gives me the same sound. I have tried to change it by going to notification ringtone in the settings. I select a different sound but keeps playing the old one. What am I doing wrong?

    You can select a ringtone separate from the default within the email app. You could actually set one for Gmail and one for Email. Start the app > soft menu key > settings (account settings) > select ringtones. From there choose your ringtone. If you pick default it will default to the notification ringtone set from your home screen > menu >settings>sound&display>notification ringtone.

    I tried the default from my home screen and it still isn't playing the ringtone I select from the notification ringtone. I wonder if I set the old ringtone some other way. If I have a hotmail account and it is synced how do I get to It? What is a soft menu key? Sorry for the stupid questions.

    Nah, you're not an idiot. It's different than any other phone I've used before (of course, my Droid IS my first smartphone), & it took me a while to figure out as well.

    We live, we learn. The day you don't learn something was the day you weren't paying attention.

    Why can't I use one of my ringtones as my text message sound? When setting my notification sounds I only get a short list of pre-installed tones (that all suck). Does anyone know of a way to use my downloaded ringtones as notification sounds?

    I'm not sure how it works in the Incredible, but I use an app called ringdroid to make tones from my mp3 files. Now using Handcent, and I think the stock works the same way you go to settings and notiifiations. There it gives you the standard notifications, but if you create them with ringdroid those notifications also are included in the stock notifications.

    Also Google says there is more on it here: HTC Mobile Phone Support - DROID INCREDIBLE by HTC (Verizon) - Audio and Ringtones

    So check that out too.

    I'd assume it's the same as the Droid. Connect the device to your PC, create a folder called Notifications and put your audio files in it. You can do the same for Alarms. When you go in to select your preferred tone it ought to be there. ;)

    The best way to have custom ringtones and alert sounds is to create it yourself. Download from the Market the app RingDroid and cut and snip a song ( or any recorded sound) you may have. Save the file by hitting the floppy disk icon. SAVE AS Type: Notification. The default is ringtone so you do have to arrow down to select the notification option.

    Then you go to your Messaging app, hit Menu, Settings. Scroll down to find Notification Settings, Select Ringtone. What you created in RingDroid will now be listed along the generic stock sounds. Select your new sound.

    You can also use this app to create sounds for Alarms. I was tired of waking up to the Rooster alarm so I created my own. It is one of the best app there is!

    Just put it in the root (main) folder of your SD card, and yes, when you go to select a notification ringtone, the ones you threw in that folder ought to be there with everything else. That's how I've been doing it for some time now.

    When I hook my incredible to my computer it shows 2 drives (Removable disk E and F) neither of which are accessible. How do I access the memory card so I can create the "notifications" folder?
