    anyone notice that when you get an email on your ipod, it makes a little sound? Wouldn't it be cool if iphone users could change the sound so its an mp3? like "You've got Mail!". I know iPod users cant but on my iPod i just want to turn it off. I get alot of emails and its a bit annoying.

    I'm the opposite and want a descent alert that I have mail, maybe even repeat itself every minute till I read it. ( this is where I miss my WM6 and the today screen)

    Is there any way of changing it as I can only see that you can change the ringtone.

    I would also like to know how to turn this off. Every 15 minutes or so, the damn thing beeps at me to let me know that I have yet another opportunity to buy viagra.

    Going to the general settings and turning off sound effects is not an option because I DO want audible alerts for my iCal reminders (i.e. remember to buy viagra).

    Can't I just shut off the sounds for email and leave the rest alone? I think I was able to do this before the 2.0 OS update. At least I never had the annoying beeps before.

    This link shows how to turn off the sounds, but is only relevant for the older OS:

    Try going to the Clock app > Timer > When Timer Ends > Sleep iPod. Worked for me.
