    It's under Settings, then Ringtones + Sound. Calendar is just an on/off option, you can't set a specific sound for it on the main OS.

    Apparently, you cannot use any notification sounds other than what is there. I believe I read that it is an item that has been much suggested on Microsoft's discussion board. Hopefully, something will happen. I can't hear most of the notification sounds that are available. :)

    I have downloaded two different ringtones from phonezoo that I have used on my 822 without a problem. If I remember correctly they were sent to me in a text message which I simply accessed and then saved. I am using one now.

    Ringtones are not a problem, you can plug your phone into your computer and manually copy sounds over there for ringtones. It's sounds for text messages, or email messages that you can't add. Which sucks, not a deal breaker, but still sucks.

    Yep, my boneheaded mistake of not reading the op carefully enough.

    I noticed after the amber update the reminder notification for the calendar is now very low in volume or maybe it's a different tone, has anyone else notice this?

    I've noticed this too. It sounds like a different tone AND it seems much quieter to me.

    the "Nokia message" notification sound also changed and it's not as loud as before. I thought I was losing it at first!

    Thanks Blkacesvf41 and pedalman56 I glade to hear it's not just me, I already posted in ms answers forums for this problem. They ask me if I have done a soft reset which I've done with no luck. I keep you posted on anything I hear.

    Are there any alternatives to these sounds? I really do need something louder. I've been missing text messages left and right for the last few days!

    I would like to see custom notification sounds as well. I dislike every one of the built-in sounds. I am either unable to hear them or they're too obnoxious. It is one of the most annoying drawbacks of the Windows Phone platform along with not being able to attach a pdf file to an email reply.
