    ..hmm.. not so sure about that buddy.

    ALERT is set to alert.wav
    NOTIFICATION is set to notification.wav
    MESSAGES is set to outlook_express.wav (custom tone)

    But when I get an email, it doesn't pick up the outlook_express.wav sound file.

    I get the standard "ding dong" tone when an email comes in.
    I get outlook_express.wav when a SMS comes in.

    So can anyone clarify the differences between ALERT and NOTIFICATION?
    Under what circumstances are each used?

    Alert is the sound when a calendar alarm goes off.

    Notification should be the sound when a txt/email arrives. At least according to the My Notification app.

    The My Notifications app still doesnt allow you to differentiate between the noise of an email arriving and a true notification, does it?

    As such my 'new email' tone sounds when I plug my charger in! grr...

    Alert goes off for calendar events ect..
    Notification goes off for system alerts- charging, errors and for unknown reason emails.
    Messages goes off for text and im notifications.

    At least for me that's how they work.

    if you apply the sms per contact you can customize your sounds also in messages under preferences and accounts you can change the tone for messages so that you can have three different sounds your email and other system nofications will be the same but you calendar and sms will be different

    could there be a patch that allows for all tones to be customizable?
    one tone for low battery/charging.. another tone for callendar... another tone for messaging.. another for email.. maybe evern different tones for different email accounts.. i like being able to hear a tone and know what just happened without having to look at my phone... just me??

    I wish someone would make a patch to disable the vibrate from messenger.

    alert = calendar alert

    notification = emails, installing patches, reboot phone, charging phone. This is the sound that you'll most often hear.

    messaging = txt/SMS, and I'm services.
