    Ive set my phone to where it plays "ringer 6" for all incoming text messages, however, when adding a user to the phonebook, if they text message me, it plays the "beep beep beep" sound, not the "ring 6" that I set to be the alert for text messages.

    I sent myself a txt from the webpage and it plays the "ringer 6" alert, like it should. In order to make the phone play the "ring 6" for a person in my phone book, I have to actually edit that person and tell the phone to use "ring 6" and not "Default text message alert" (which should be ring 6, since I set it to that in the message settings menu..."

    anyone have this problem or know how to fix it? it seems that phonebook entries default automatically to the "beep beep beep" style alert.. my 4400 did not do this, as I had a specific ringer set for incoming texts..

    any ideas?

    Here's what I'm doing. I'm going to the message menu (Menu -> 4), then I'm going to option 6 (msg settings), then to option 4 (msg alerts). I then go to option 2 (Text Msg Alert) I tell it to select "Custom Ringtone" then the screen pops up w/ all the ringtones. I select Ring 6, and hit ok. It was my impression that whatever "sound" I chose at this point would be the "default" text message sound when I receive a text message, however this is not the case. When I added someone to my phonebook, and they texted me, all i got was "beep beep beep" to let me know I had a text message. When I texted myself from the webpage, I got the "Ring 6" sound...

    With my VX4400 I could have done this same thing, and the "default" sound for text messages would have been exactly what I had set under the Msg Alerts section on the phone.
