    Has anyone heard if Apple will put email alerts for 4.2?

    I'd like to choose like I can with SMS. I wonder why this is not an option too? What's the problem? I am not even saying that they should let me browse the phone for songs, just the same list for SMS that I can assign also to emails.

    The fasten your seat belt PING alert is OK, but I would rather have the "trill" alert for it.

    Come on Apple, I am not even asking you to give me anything new, just put the same menu for SMS on the email alert.

    Please Stevo. Throw me a bone here.

    I wonder the same thing from time to time. Either allow for customized alerts with songs or ones self created, or add lots of options to choose from. either would be nice, with both being the perfect situation.

    Well, I mean, I just wonder. I am sure that Apple has heard the forums over the years asking them to please please give them a way to browse or change all alert tones.

    This is almost 2011 and nothing.

    New SMS? I don't really care about SMS tones. A couple of chirp chirps, whatever. It's an SMS. Who cares. Also, if you cancel an SMS, LEAVE THE NEW SMS RED CIRCLE THINGY ON TOP OF THE SMS ICON ON! Why turn it off?

    But, why oh why make the email ON or OFF????

    Why not put the same menu as SMS? Just have a list. The same list for all alerts. I'll be happy with that.

    A choo choo for my Yahoo, a Train for my Gmail, or whatever.

    They already have the menu in the SMS, why not in Mail?

    Oops, how silly of me to add a question mark.

    I get a sound alert when I receive a new email. Its not very loud, but its definitely noticeable.

    Thanks, I knew that leaving out a question mark when asking a question was a sure fire way to get a quick answer!

    I'm running the 4.2 GM. No new alerts for SMS or emails... If you can figure out how to make custom sms tones, it looks like it may support it.

    4.2 GM has 17 new alert sounds for SMS. Scroll up under text tones. There is not a way to make custom alert tones at this time. You have the original SMS tones, the 17 new ones, or None. That's it.

    All I want is to have the same list of tones already in the iPhone.

    The list is available for SMS tones and for the Phone sound. So, why is there no drop down list for Email alerts?

    Beats me.

    I submitted in the iPhone feedback page. Thanks.
