    Before upgrading to 8.1, the message tone is set to Song-A.
    Song-A will obviously be used for
    a) SMS
    b) USSD messages (messages that you get when you dial some magic codes using phone app. eg : *123#)
    c) Some other special messages that operators/banks sent (messages that won't appear in message threads).

    After upgrading to 8.1, I've noticed the following:
    1. The entire Song-A will be played in FULL for USSD and special messages.
    2. There's no way to change the tone for USSD and special messages. Changing the tone for messaging app does not change the tone for USSD and special messages. Changing Phone app tone does not change the tone for USSD and special messages as well.
    3. SMS tone can be changed via action center but now it only plays for like 5 seconds? IIRC, it plays for around10 seconds previously?

    Anyone experiencing the same problem?
    I've even tried changing the tone for every single app in the action center. Still cant change the tone for USSD and special messages

    SOLUTION PLEASE
