    I just bought the atrix on Monday. I've been using a dumb phone for the past 2 years since it was getting expensive to operate. I'm now on a family plan and got the phone from Best Buy with gift cards!

    So far I'm happy with the atrix and I did not want to go the iphone route, but I thought there would be more control with the sounds of incoming emails/texts/game alerts to distinguish them a part.

    You need to spend sometime with the phone that is all. If you go to the email or messaging and then press settings, in there you will find options to change the notification sounds. You can do this with gmail, email, Facebook, Google+, and many others. Once you open the app, just simply press the settings buttom( four square button) on the bottom left corner of your phone.

    Welcome byoung8.

    I think I switched my ringtones "per user" using the built in Contacts list: Bring up the menu, select Options.

    Welcome to the land of Android.

    Does the atrix come preinstalled with the GB update?

    Yes, it did. I was ready to upgrade it, but it said I had the newest version.

    Welcome to the forum.
    Thanks Rob, I keep forgetting about the 4square button on any page to show options. I found it. Now I'll know if anything is urgent to look at the phone like a text msg. Do you know if the phone will remind you of a text msg minutes past if you haven't retrieved it? I know there's a blinking LED, but audible is much easier.

    You can install a custom home launcher like GoLauncher that has settings to keep a count of unread messages, calls and emails.

    Not sure about repeating. I use the Announcify app from the Market for text messages. It announces the sender's name of incoming texts.
