    Anybody figure out how to get a non-stock sound to be played? I want my "Droid" back.

    You're the only person I've heard of that actually liked that.....by the way, you own a Thunderbolt now, not a DROID.

    I like the droid sound too!

    After owning 3 different types of droids, I miss it too :) But actually there is a way to get it back. If you plug in your SD card to the PC, open the media folder, then go into the notifications folder. If you find the "droid" sound online, drop the file into this folder, thenunplug the phone from your PC and just look in your notification sounds, and you'll see it in there.

    Look around for it, but if you can't find the sound, let me know through this thread and I'll post it for you. Someone posted the actual sound clip ripped from the original droid in the D2G forum since that phone for some reason doesnt have the Droid sound either.

    Hey I am right there with ya OP. I love the "Droooooooiiiiiiidddddd" notification and used it for my text messages. I am going to try to email it to myself from my husband's X. Otherwise I am sure it is online somewhere.

    The Zedge ringtones app has the Droid sound, and you can set it as the notification right from the app. I actually downloaded the one called "Droid kills iPhone" because it made me chuckle.

    If it works anything like the Desire HD/Inspire, you should be able to use a file managing app (such as Astro) and create a folder named "notifications" and once you place the sound you want in there, it should show up as a choice in the selection screen.

    No I'm not. Everyone I know with a droid likes the "Drrrooiiiiddd" sound. And yes I have TB but what does that have to do with me getting custom notifications to work?

    FWIW, while this works, I noticed that upon reboot all the ringtones and notifications get set back to default, which is a pain.

    I just don't see what the big appeal with that sound is, it's fine if I'm at home or in the car, but if I'm in a store, at a casual restaurant, or some place that is on the quiet side, having a very load DROOOIIIDDDD sound makes everyone look at you. Then there are times when I get several texts at once.

    Create the folder on your SDCard. It stays after boots for me.

    That's what Silent mode or vibrate is for.

    I meant the Zedge ringtones specifically, which I had previously suggested using.

    There are several occasions where a short, simple beep or tone is acceptable, but not a loud DROOOIIDDD sound, and also where vibrate or silent would cause you to not realize you received a text.

    I too love the DROID ringtone. My bf got annoyed with me saying it along with the ads too.
    Anyway...
    I copied all my ringtones into a notification folder but when I try to assign a new ringtone only ONE of my custom ringtones shows up on the list to choose from.

    I can go to settings>ringtones and create one from an existing music track but talk about tedious.

    Try clicking on the Personalize button on the dock, then click on Ringtone, notification sound(Default, message, calendar and email can be setup under this one) and alarm.

    Hope that helps. This is what I did to get Drooooid as my default notification.

    Back when I had my D1/D2/D2G/X I always rocked the DROIIIID notification sound, almost like a status symbol kind of like how people leave the stock "sent from iphone" on their email messages.
    Anyway, now that I have a thunderbolt, I rightly use a THUNDERBOLT sound as my sms notification (just like the thunderbolt sound on the boot animation)
