By Misty Dawn, 17 August, 2013 Forum iOS and iPadOS Is there a way to switch the "default" setting from the "tritone" for my voice mail alerts to another alert like the "Chime"? If so, how does one do this with VoiceOver? Options Log in or register to post comments Comments double tap Hi. It's easy. double tap the voicemail sound, and you can switch it to what you want then hit the back button, done. Follow these steps. 1. Open Follow these steps. 1. Open settings, and then choose sounds. 2. Find new voicemail button and double tap 3. Now choose the sound you would like to use. Double tapping on the sound previews it. 4. When done, Find the back button on the top left corner of the screen or do the scrub gesture. 5. Leave settings with your home button. Happy using! While this selects the sound, While this selects the sound, it does NOT put a "default" label after it. The reason I want a "default" label after it is so that it not only plays for voicemails alone but so that it also plays for app notifications. Currently, my new sound only plays for voicemails, but the tritone is still there for app notifications. I believe you're stuck. Hi. The word default is just that, thereby not letting you change the sound unless you want to jailbrake or something. I don't think it's that much of a problem.
