    Default Notifications sounds changed

    Just the last week or so the notifications sounds on my Playbook mysteriously changed. Instead of the chimes, I now have this dreadful horror film like sounds, like a banshee. No idea what changed them, though one of my cats will walk/lie on it. Can't find any way to change notification sounds for email. I guess I'll back up/ restore to original settings if nothing else. What a pain.

    might be a 3rd party app you installed?

    Backed it up, restored and it's back to normal. I should have recorded the awful sound. I think it was related to the email. I don't really have any apps other than Drudge and some weather apps all have been on it for over a year. Wish I knew how to change the sounds, it would be nice to select a different sound for different email accounts.

    Any android app has about a dozen different sound options for notifications. You can go into Android settings next time and switch them to silent.
