    Changing my email alerts

    Advertisement



    I know how to do the standard email alert changes, but when I change my email alerts I still don't get the tone I select. I have made sure its not muted, selected max volume settings, and tried with all of my email accounts. The only way I know when I receive an email is when the light blinks.

    I know I can set it to vibrate, but is there a way to get an actual tone of my choosing associated with it like I can with my SMS, etc.

    Thanks,

    Libido

    I have many email accounts, and I don't use a holster.

    I have found where it says I can change the tone for each email, under advanced profile settings. I have tried changing it many times. Its not on mute, its set for out of holster, and the tone is selected that I want.

    They should show up in your profile editor, when you go into advanced and edit, and it should list each email account seperate. least mine does.
    It takes many professionals versed in many different area's to help the masses, I am just a single drop in that pool.

    Libido,

    When you go to Profile - Advanced - (Active) and you select your email account What does it say currently next to Out of Holster: ?

    Alright, tried changing it on the loud profile instead.... No good. It vibrates cause I didn't turn vibrate off but no sound when the text comes in...

    Out of Holster: Tone
    Tune: Buttons
    Volume: High
    Number of Beeps: 3
    Repeat Notification: LED Flashing
    Number of Vibrations: 2


    I'm usually pretty quick to figure stuff like this out, and my other tones changed easily? What is going on here?

    PS: Same problem with my facebook alerts not working.

    Well...that seems right--- by any chance is the sound file "Buttons" on your media card and are you connected to your desktop?

    Have you tried any other sounds?

    Correct, I have different ringtones for each email address, and facebook notifications, for a total of four. I don't have a media card yet, and its not connected to my computer ATM.

    That's what I'm thinking...... Could it be some setting somewhere else? Some other setting that is mixing it up?

    I suspect so...are you using a custom theme by any chance?

    Even if you are not try changing themes and see if that changes anything....
