    Idol 4s - Latest release build .448 - I have several custom text tones assigned in the people hub/app. They are not working. Only the default sound is coming through.

    Also, The outlook app is the same way. I am getting the default tone and not the outlook/mail tone? Is there a secret to get this working or is it a bug?

    have you installed the latest firmware update?

    did you do a soft reset past updating? to do that hold together volume down+power key until phone reboots.

    The Alcatel 4s hasn't had a firmware update yet. And yes done a couple soft resets because of lock ups.

    Same troubles on my phone, no custom notifications.
    I have a broken volume down button and was hoping there may be another way to do a soft reset.
    Any methods?

    For some reason, custom notifications and ringtones only show up when you put them into your Notifications folder on the device directly from a pc connected via USB.

    I rest my phone and did not restore from a backup. Custom sounds are working now. I shouldnt have to do that.

    Well... problems are back again. Is there some sort of secret to get and keep custom tones working?

    I had certain contacts setup with a unique text tone. It was working. I changed the default messaging tone under notifications and now that is trumping the individual tones in the people app. Is this still a bug? On production release?

    I have the same issue with outlook. You have the notification setting in the app to play sound... but it only plays the default. I changed it in settings/notifications to WINDOWS EMAIL and I still get a default beep. WTH?
