    From all the searching I have done I thinking figured out that you can't adjust the volume or tone for notifications ( email, txt,..et ). Am I correct about this?

    I do not want to jailbreak the phone.

    If it is true I say we all email apple saying thisis a feature that is a must. I keep missing emails and txt cause I can't here the tones is public.

    I hope i'm just ovelooking this feature

    Not sure what you mean by tone, but if you mean can you change the sounds played when you get a new text then yes, under Settings->Sounds

    tone=sound

    with the text msg sounds i can only choose from the 6 listed?

    i would really like to change the new mail, and new voice mail sounds.

    i would love to hear the tri tone sound when i got a new e-mail or something i custom made

    You can only do this if you jailbreak. Unfortunately since you don't want to jailbreak, you are SOL. :)

    Yeah this has been a complaint of us Non-Jailbreakers for a while, I was hoping that since Apple decided to start selling pre-made ringtones that MAYBE this had some bearing on the lack of notification sounds...

    The volume of the preset sound for mail notification does change. I just tested it with my own iPhone.

    Go to Settings --> Sounds. Move the slider right below "Vibrate." It controls the volume of all system sounds (except for the keyboard click sound with 3.1).
