    Occasionally, my notification sounds will stop working. I noticed today that I had gotten a text message and didn't get the full notification sound. It was kind of chopped off. I went into Handcent and went to test the notification and sure enough, it wasn't making the audible notification. When it does this, it also mutes my other notifications, like Gmail. Has anyone else ever encountered this? Does anyone know what to do to fix it? Reboot always helps and it only happens once in a while, but it has probably happened about 5 or so times since I got the phone in December.

    I have a similar situation with my husbands Droid. His original Droid, the main buttons stopped working so we got him a refurbished through Verizon. Now his phone rings once and stops. The call is still coming in and continues to vibrate but no rings. Same with any notification. If he has the notification to go 2 or 3 times, it only rings once and stops. I have checked all his settings, unrooted him and the problem persists. I think he has another defective phone. So I rerooted him, put a custom song on for his ringer and have given him the option to either get another refurb or use the insurance to get a new one. He is still thinking as his phone is working fine with the custom ringer.

    So long story short, you may have a defect in your ringtones/notifications and it may get worse. To my knowledge, there is no fix other than putting a song as a notification or ringtone. Try using a song as a notification and see if that works. If not, then you may need to take it into verizon and get a refurb or if you have insurance make a claim and get another phone.

    Hope this helps......

    Notification sounds being choppy or not playing at all is the result of your phone being bogged-down. Ive noticed that sometimes my text message tones either wont go off or will be choppy when my phone is doing alot of things and i get an incoming message.
