    Hey everyone,

    Loving my new iPhone but I have a question; I created my own ringtones in Itunes, some are 10 seconds, some 30, etc. I set tones for messages, sms, etc. and when I get an incoming text/message, the ringtone keeps playing even though I checked it and sometimes after I deleted it.

    Do I have to make the tones super short or is there a way to stop the tone from playing when I open txts/messages?

    And one more ?? how can I set the tones for messages/texts/reminders to either stop or vibrate while I am on a call?

    I suggest making tones no longer than 10 seconds or so...

    As for the other question, that is the MOST annoying thing about an iPhone! Even more so if you're on a call, and then phone is to your ear. If I'm on a long call, I switch to vibrate while on the call. That way you don't get a 'loud' tone in your ear.

    PS: You've been a BlackBerry person for years, I can't believe that you switched!!!

    Thanks Navi! And yes! I can't believe it either! I remember when I laughed so hard at the name iPad and now I have a iPad and iPhone. I was ready for a change though, so far so good though. Still have my BB Bold though as a back up in my closet!

    Play one of the default tones, and see how long they are. When you create a ringtone, or tone in general, try to make it the same length. That may help, too...

    How did the test go?

    I've not bothered with ringtones and the likes in years

    Why do ringtones I've created continue playing when I've brought up the text, email, etc? Right now the only way to stop it is to turn off the phone. It's a 4S by the way. It hasn't always been this way, but started occuring in the past few weeks. I recently downloaded the new IOS version. Would that have anything to do with this problem?
