Samsung Galaxy S :: How To Set Message Alert Sound?
Oct 7, 2010
Looking for some help, just got my SGS a few days ago and m having trouble setting a sound as my text message alert. I have downloaded a few soundboards and want to use one of them....i press and hold the sound i want and set as my default notification.....i then go into settings and choose the relevant sound but everytime i get a text I'm still getting the stupid t-mobile msg sound.
I just got my Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant from Bell, and I am not verry technical. I have some (maybe 10) additional apps installed since i got the phone, including advanced task killer.
My issue is this: when I get a new message, it appears in the blinds (the thing at the top?) like it is supposed to, but after I check the message, it stays there, saying I have the new message. I can clear it and it goes away, but shouldnt it dissapear after I check the text?
I also crash frequently, but I am thinking newer firmware will fix that
How do I assign an MP3 or indeed other audio file for my TXT message alert.? I have created and assigned about 5 different ringtones to both individuals and groups, but I can't get the phone to accept a MP3 as the txt notification ?
Ive searched through the forums, and no one seems to have this exact question. When everyone other than my girlfriend texts me, my phone vibrates and plays the notification sound. Now, when my girlfriend texts me, I get no vibration, AND no sound. The only thing I could think of is that I gave my girlfriend a custom ringtone I made with ringdroid, but that wouldn't make any sense since its for a call, not a text. Please help me, shes getting mad at me when I respond 2 hours later.
When i receive a text message the phone doesnt sound an alert or vibrate, really annoying having to keep checking the phone to see if i have any messages. The software is all up to date, ive reset the alert tone in the notification settings, and im afraid thats all my knowledge used up. Ringtone sound is fine and it also vibrates for that.
My Captivate has been nothing but a pain. The GPS comes and goes and the response time is horrible with the touch screen (give me old-fashioned BUTTONS any day!) Now the 'message' alert continues to go off and I can't stop it; I finally had to mute it. I have rebooted and even removed the battery and it won't stop.
Is it possible to change this? It cannot be changed through notification ringtone menu; all that succeeds in doing is changing tone for other notifications like email etc. Have tried to select other notification tones, but it is the "tada" tone that always comes up when SMS is received. Can the tone for receiving SMS be changed, and if so, how?
I have the Epic 4g and I am trying to see if I can get an LED light to flash when I have a new message/email. When my phone is on the counter, I find myself always having to take my screen out of sleep mode just to see if I missed a message.
I've been having a problem with my desire home screen (in particular the sms icon) and I'm wondering if anyone else knows how to fix it.
Recently my messages icon has been showing the little "1" in a green circle indicating I have an unread message. Problem is, I've gone through every list of messages I have on the device and there are no messages I haven't read and the "1" stays there. The only ways I've found to get rid of it are to either delete the icon and then put it back or to use Advance Task Killer and kill messages application. I'm not using any fancy apps for messages, just the default one.
My email counter is always perfect, this only seems to affect my sms. Also, my girlfriend told me she sent me a message a few days ago, but I never received it. Not sure if that's a happy coincidence, or if the phone got the message, is telling me I haven't read it, but isn't displaying it for me to see. All the other messages from her are plainly visible.
Is there an application (or one in the works) that will allow us to apply a sound effect to the slider opening and closing? Maybe base it off of when the screen rotates + keyboard lights up? I would love to apply 2 seperate notifications. One for open and one for close. Anyone got an application like this in the works or know of one that would work on Samsung Moment? I know there is a notification for when you unplug the power, but I'd love to have 2 seperate from that for JUST the slider. I can't believe we can't modify seperate notification sounds custom without apps.
I downloaded a app called zadge or something and all I want to is have that aol "you got mail" for my texts ad it won't work. I tried setting it with it and it won't work then when I go to menu and notifications I can't select one I have downloaded on my sd.
Since the latest firmware removed the vibrate option on the drop down tray and I usually use 3-4 profiles on my phone now the silent/vibrate/normal option was perfect.. What app can you guys recommend for a quick profile change?
I got a new Gio for my son but there is something very strange about the phone.The normal ringtone can go very hard but all the other tones are so low of volume that you cant here them when the phone is on the table in front of me.
The volume is at max but still cant here it.This is with sms , mail , whatsapp and more.
Is there any way to turn off all sounds except for one incoming number? I like to have my phone completely off by when my ex wife has our son, I'd like to keep it on just for if she calls. Is this possible?
I want to change the alert sounds for various events: email notification, SMS, power status, Google Talk, etc. I can change the alert sound via Settings->Sound & display->Notification ringtone, but the sound is identical for all the various notifications which seems ridiculous. Is there an app or widget which allows me to assign different notification sounds to different events?
Whenever I get a text message Handcent plays a song from my MP3's. Even though I have set it to use a simple notification. The song plays all the way through too, the only way I can silence it is to turn off my ringer volume. But then I have no ringer.
My definition/expectation of a 'notification' is a graphic/text message with the option to enable/disable a sound to alert me that the notification came in per app.
I want to:
1- enable/disable graphic/text per app
2- enable/disable sound per app
For #1, it looks like I have to go Setting>App Manager>All>Uncheck 'show notifications'. But, apparently that will disable everything...ie, no graphic/text or sound. I've tried lock screen and notification apps without luck so far......
