    Afternoon all

    I have noticed on 8.1 that my message tones were not playing in full so I have been busy looking for a solution. The problem seems to be linked with the notification banner if its turned on and when I receive a message the screen turns on with the banner then as soon as the banner fades away the tone stops, turn the banner off completely the tone goes off but the screen stays off and the tone plays in full. My sons 520 seems to be doing the same.

    Is anyone else having the problem?

    Yep, I'm having the same problem as well. I just shortened the few long message tones I had to accommodate for this 5-secondish message tone limit with the banner. I didn't, however, know that the length was due to the banner. Good find!

    I have this too on my 925. Though I only notice it on my voicemail tone. My text tones are short enough that I wouldn't notice them. I have zero issue with turning off the banner with my voicemail. Thanks for the info!

    It's always like that. If you hold the banner so it doesn't move, the tone will continue to play.
