    Hi All

    Ok so my son wants a phone for XMas ...I took him in he found one he liked ...I told him we would think about it . While there I picked out the Droid for myself as I was up for a new phone..

    I got the phones on Monday and he had no idea that he is getting a phone.for Christmas Having said that my phone was in my coat pocket and hung over the chair in the kitchen the phone said DROID..my son was right there he pulled it out and saw it ..i told him it was on loan I was trying it out ..I hope he is still surprised Christmas morning

    Thought I would share my story ...Anyways the phone keeps say Droid every so often and I don't know why

    Any help ..would be appreciated

    Happy Holidays
    Ed

    That's the standard notification alert. Emails, and things like that. Usually with me I have it said up for emails. You can silence it in the settings.

    I think that if you go into your settings and change the notifications sound, you can get it to stop saying Droid.

    And I think your son will be surprised or relieved. Just because you are thinking about a Droid for yourself, that doesn't mean you were willing to buy one for him, too!:D

    you can also go into the menu settings of each app that would create a notification and customize whether those apps alert you and in what way.

    so there is an overall system notification sound and then there is a setting for email, messaging, fb, calendar, or anything else that would pop up a notification.

    i like having the sounds different so i know if i can ignore the notifications or not. plus, having the system notification its own sound will help you to identify if there is a problem with your phone.

    about a week ago, i was going back and forth between mounting my sd card with my PC and trying other things. i think i made that sound go off 20 times in an hour. pretty sure people were pissed with me. i eventually turned the sound off.
