    Notification Sounds

    OK, so I posted this in the general topic before realising it should be here.

    Got my S3 yesterday , still finding my way around.

    Having some trouble with notification sounds.

    I want a notification for SMS/text but not for email (specifically Gmail). Cannot see how to set these separately.

    I've set the notification sound (settings/sound/default notifications) to Temple Bell - fine for texts. But the phone rings briefly when a Gmail is delivered. How do I turn that off?

    By the way, love the phone so far, big step up from MIUI on an original HTC Desire!!

    I don't have my S3 yet but I would check the setting in the Gmail app. There should be one for notifications

    Great..you have wonderful phone

    Like Jeff say.

    Launch Gmail
    - Go to setting (In Gmail setting menu)
    - Click on your email account ( xxx@gmail.com)
    - Ringtone & Vibrate
    - Ringtone and put to silent.

    Hope it help and keep us posted your progress.

    Thanks for your help guys. Setting was buried deeper than I'd looked. Email deliveries now silent.
    Thanks again.

    Hi,
    How did you end up solving this problem? When I get an email my phone makes a sound. I have read the advice below and have changed the gmail settings but it is when I get an email in my other account and I cannot find how to turn it off.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    You mean exchange email/other than Gmail app? If yes:
    - Launch your email app
    - Go to setting in your email app
    - You can see your email account: xxx@xyz.abc.xxx
    - Click your email account
    - New page will pop up
    - Select ringtones - silent

    Hope it help and keep us posted
