    Hello all, I'm new to the IPad community and just picked up my iPad 2 a week ago. I absolutely love it but I can't seem to figure out how to change sound notifications for things other than ringtone (eg. Mail, calendar, etc.). I read the user guide right through and I'm not sure if there's just general notifications for these apps cause I couldn't find anything about it. If someone could fill me in that would be great! TIA... Sorry I posted in the wrong section and can't figure out how to move it. Sorry...

    Outside my iPad, or was it inside?

    Short answer, you can't change notification sounds.

    It would be possible on a jailbroken iPad, but considering you have an iPad 2, that is not an option, so for now will you have to live with the standard sound.

    Now it's interesting because, I use Pocket Informant, which sits on top of the iPad Calendar and you can change the notification sounds there. There's a very comprehensive list of 13 alternate notification sounds - including gunshot, cash register, pop, bell, and so on....

    But I agree, I can't see any way of doing that for the standard apps.
