How do I customize the notifications for new text messages? How do I turn off vibrate for new text messages?

There is a way to customize the notification, but it’s not well documented.

  • The next time you get a text (you can have someone send a test message for this), pull down the top notification area or from the main screen, press the upper-left menu key to open the notifications.
  • Use your finger on the touchscreen and press and hold (long-press) the notice about the new message.
  • This should give you some options, including one labeled “More settings” – tap on “More settings”.
  • Scroll to the bottom and tap “Basic Notifications”.
  • You can now set custom sound and vibrate options for Messaging.
