Two System Sounds won't work on beta 4 anymore

Tested one of my app that plays a system sound with the latest OS update and they do not play.

 

                SystemSound.GeneralNotification
                SystemSound.SapphireNotification


these two won't play.  Also tested with the systemsound sample app.

I have not installed beta 4 yet.  Can someone confirm if those two sounds are in beta 4?

Re: Two System Sounds won't work on beta 4 anymore

The file called notification_general.wav has been removed, but the file called notification_sapphire.wav is still present on the device.

I have no idea how to actually answer your question without trying it out myself... I just happened to be comparing filesystem listings between beta 3 and 4 and noticed this difference, and remembered seeing this thread today.

thanks peter.  If RIM had removed them then the docs are not updated on the site yet.  wonder why they removed the general sound.
