  11. 11
    After a small bit of scrolling, we will come across a section labeled "SENT MESSAGES" at the top, with our options relating to sending messages underneath of it.
    We will have two options for Notification sounds, one labeled "Notification sound (Slot 1)" and the other "Notification sound (Slot 2)". This is because we may have two micro SIM cards inserted into our HTC One M8. We currently only have one inserted in the phone shown, so for this video we will be concentrating on Slot 1. However, this video is compatible with both slots so we can follow the same instructions when interacting with Slot 2.

    Next we need to make sure that the option labeled "Play notification sound" is checked.
    If it was not checked, we would no longer be able to choose either of the Notification sound options. We will know it is checked when the box to the left of it has a blue check mark inside of it.

    We will note however that the default notification, listed as "Default notification (Lotus)", is the same as the Received Messages sound.
    We have just scrolled up from "SENT MESSAGES" section to the "RECEIVED MESSAGES" section and we can see the default notification is Lotus as well. We may want to change this then, or change one of these, so we can actually tell the difference between when a message has been received and when a message has been sent.
