Which stock text tone have you decided on? Personally I like tri-tone the best. It gets my attention but isn't obnoxious. The only problem is the iPhone is crazy popular and everyone kept tri-tone like I did. I'm trying to find an alternative in the stock tones but I don't really like any of the others.

What did you choose?

I use a custom tone for my friends that sounds like a PS3 trophy notification, so every text feels like an accomplishment. For VIP's I use fanfare, because it sounds like royalty has just texted you.

I just got bored and kept it stock. More confusing when your with all your friends and you get a text and everyone checks their phone ;)

I use a custom text tone. I use to use the stock tri-tone but I had that for years so then I changed it to Calypso. Then I got tired of that and then change it to the street fighter (Hadouken) alert tone when the bus driver incident happen. :D Then I change it to the default Samsung Finesse ringtone. Don't ask me why but for some odd reason I like hearing the sound of it

I use the swoosh sound usually used for incoming mail. It's not as loud and annoying. I get a lot of texts and I prefer something not very annoying
