    Rebooting my phone cured the ESPN sound issue, but I somehow lost the new mail sound/vibration around the time I first installed iOS10 PB 1. Really the only issue I've had with any of the betas, and it's relatively minor. I think I might set up my iPhone 7 as a new phone if the restore doesn't solve this issue.

    Yes happened to me too.

    Viber uses a distinctive two bong or bell tone so when I was in the office working around the floor I would know when my girlfriend sent a message. Now it is that ugly tri tone sound that is mixed with all the other notifications i get, flipboard and other alerts etc.

    Not happy.

    Try the hard reset by pressing the power and home buttons simultaneously and keep pressing them till Apple's logo appears on the screen, then release your fingers . Worked for me.

    The reboot didn't seem to work for me. Fortunately, what did work for me was uninstalling and reinstalling the apps that had the wrong sounds. While it is a PITA, that always fixed it. But if the app was updated, then I'd need to uninstall and reinstall it, rather than update it, for the sounds to work right again.

    VERY annoying but at least there is a work around.

    I'll have to try the hard reset next time and see if that works over reinstalling the app.

    Reboot your iPhone. I had the same thing happen right after I updated. I rebooted it again and all the sounds went back to normal.

    I've noticed some strange sound substitutions as well. The new ESPN app uses tri-tone instead of the mini ESPN theme (which frankly I find annoying, but at least you know what's coming in). My iMessages are fine. Haven't used What's App yet. Anyone else having the issue with ESPN?
    I am having sound issues like everyone else. Hope there's a fix soon

    Has anyone noticed for apps like Whatsapp and FB Messenger, the messages and call notifications sounds are the same tri-tone messaging sounds from the built in iMessages app? This is very annoying.
    Actually, it's a coincidence. "Tri-tone" is not the default alert tone for built in Messaging App. The default for built in Messaging is "Note". In the phone it's referred to as Text Message.

    Issue: "Tri-tone" was the default alert prior to iMessage. Many people restore their new phones from backups and for that reason "Tri-tone" has remained the Message/Text alert.

    Facebook and other apps did receive "Tri-tone" as their default after iMessage came around and the default was switched to "Note".

    If you go Sounds, Text Tone, you will see Note (Default) and to find Tri-tone you have to scroll down and click on Classic to get the "older" tones.

    So technically it's the other way around. You are choosing to use the the tone Apple has designated for FB and other apps for your Messaging App.

    Lastly, "Tri-tone" is also now the Default for New Voicemail

    I had same problem with Viber, which adopt system sounds for notification. After update of Viber app option for setting of system tones for notification was gone. On my iPhone (with iOS 10) Viber app (version 6.3.1.) makes a lot of problems. I reboot my iPhone and notification sound for Viber comes back, but during typing of Viber massage my keyboard losing sound, I have not sound for massage gone, lock button have no sound.... This Viber update is disaster! I hope they will issue new update ASAP!

    As I mentioned in a prior post, try completely uninstalling and reinstalling the app with the wrongs sounds. It a PITA but it seems to always work for me.

    The issue is, when the app is updated, the sound reverts back to being wrong, thus requiring the same uninstall/reinstall yet again.

    Regardless of what tone was saved in a previous backup, no matter what you change any apps notification sound to, does not save the tone. It will always play tri-tone. The only way to change the sound is to select the new tone, and then reboot the device. Problem is, once the app is updated, the sound notification reverts to Tri-Tone. This is happening with all my email apps, FB, imessage and is happening on my iPad Pro as well. So this is an iOS10 bug, and has nothing to do with a backup.

    Yesterday all of my third party app notification sounds reverted to the stock tri-tone sound out of no where. Rebooted my phone and they went back to normal. No idea what happened.

    Ok so this morning I downloaded updates for FB messenger and Snapchat and immediately both of those notification sounds reverted to the tri-tone sound.
