    For text messaging I wanted something unique, natural, noticeable yet unobtrusive at the same time so decided on a cricket chirp. I spent hours online searching for what I heard in my head without finding anything good, finally found a 30 second night sounds sample from a BBC effects library that contained the perfect chirp. I snipped it, looped it, added the right amount of delay to get the double chirp I had in my head and have been using it ever since. I like that it's something nobody else has.

    For personal e-mail I use the Road Runner's "meep meep" and for work e-mail it's the "pluddle-duddle-dunk" that follows it. Or at least so it was on my Treo with ChatterEmail, on my Pre it's just meep-meep for the notification sound; but I've applied patches to turn most notifications off so it's overwhelming just for e-mail that I hear it...
    Yeah, uhh... it's Kevin. (KevinT was already taken.)

    milominderbinder gave you the answer if you want to have unique notification sounds for each contact.

    In order to just change the default notification sound, no patch is necessary. Just go into the Messaging app, open the Messaging menu and select Preferences & Accounts and you can select your ringtone there.

    I got my pre-plus a month ago and can't see a way to assign one ring tone for all my contacts (1100+) and one ring tone for non-contacts. I did it this way with my Treo 650 and it makes it easy to tell if I know or have had contact with the caller in the past. Of course 98% of known callers are family/friends, etc. so in effect it's a default to family/friends. I sync to Google contacts. Hopefully I just haven't seen a way to do this - thanks.

    R2D2 for text messages. My ring tone is the yip-yips discovering the telephone from sesame street. Standard system sound for everything else.

    Default SMS is the first 2 measures of "Werewolves of London" by Warren Zevon. Similarly, for specific contacts I use brief instrumental clips from the intros of various songs.

    I use either the arrow sound and "Message for you, Sir" from Monty Python and the Holy Grail, or some of the video game sound effects via the mouth of Michael Winslow of Police Academy.

    My text message alert sounder is the ESPN sounder they play during the NFL Draft when a team has just made their selection. If you'd want it go here and just download it to your pc and than copy it on your pre. For all you sports nuts!!!

    For a ringtone, I use the "old" 24 CTU ringtone. In the past I've also used a clip of the yip-yips and the telephone as someone else mentioned (I think I made that one myself) and the Robot Chicken closing credits "bawk" song (freely available from the Robot Chicken website).

    For text messages, I use the old Treo "bee-doo" alert sound. I don't remember where I found that sound for reuse, but I think it was on a thread here somewhere.

    There's a homebrew patch that allows for a custom tone for calls from people not in your contacts. You would set a default ring - that's what you'd hear for folks in your contact, and use the patch for the others.

    I use the "boyeep" sound that Legend of Zelda makes when you pick up a heart. It always makes me happy to hear it!

    I use sonar pings (think submarines) for most of my sounds now including ringer. They are subtle... people dont notice them unless they know to listen for them and they go very well with vibrate in my pocket. One ping for email, two for text or im, and 5 for a phone call. I even have specialized pings for certain people so that the sound scheme stays the same, but i can tell from the type of ping if it is someone I need to pay more attention to (eg my boss or my young lady) For instance, I have three different ringers, on a normal "unknown caller" it will ping slowly, for a regular contact it pings at a medum speed, and for those few important callers it pings a little faster and has an almost "dirty" sound to it a grainy audio texture in the background that makes it stand out from ambient noise just a little more than the normal ringer. I can leave my phone sitting on my desk with the screen face down and the only people who can hear it go off at all are standing in my cubicle with me, and always ask "Did I hear something?" Of course... when I turn the volume up the pings can also wake me from sleep or get my attention as I walk around outside from my pocket.

    IM/TXT messages: The original ICQ "Uh-oh!" sound.
    Alerts: The Mac OS Classic "Quack"
    Notifications: The Mac OS Classic "Wild Eep"

    I have a few custom songs set for people as ringtones. The guy in the office right next to mine also has a Pre, so ONE of us had to differentiate!
