Hi all, I'm new to the S3 and this forum. I can't seem to be able to set a different notification sound for when a text message is delivered, it just plays the same sound as when I receive a text, any ideas on how to change this, I'd really only rather a vibrate but when I set this it sets it for receiving texts too?

Hey there I've a UK S3 so I hope this is the same for you.

Go to settings/sound
Scroll down to the ringtone and notifications section
Your text message alert is the 'default notification'

My sounds are in the sdcard0/media/audio/notifications and are just mp3 files

Hope that helps

Open standard messaging app. Menu - settings. Scroll all the way to the bottom of settings - second last option is to switch notifications on for texts, and the last option is to chose the notification sound.

Thanks for the reply guys. Maybe I should clarify what I'm asking. I have my message tone just fine. But I am wondering if it is possible to change the tone for delivery report, for everything else it is a beep in the notification bar but when it comes to delivery reports of texts its the same tone as receiving a text. I'd really rather not turn off delivery reports !!

I'm not sure about the stock text message app, but I use Handcent SMS which is free (and awesome). In it I can set custom sounds for delivery reports etc.

In the stock messaging app no you can't change the delivery report notification sound.
