Can't stop an MP3 ring tone after receiving message

On my Kaiser, when I got a text message a long MP3 would play which I could cancel by pressing the Red call hang up button.

Very annoyingly on the HD2 there doesn't seem to be any way to stop the MP3 so it just keeps on playing for a few minutes. The hang up button just switches off the display but the song carries on playing.

Anyone have an idea for a workaround?

You simply cut the favorite part of your mp3 and use that as a ringtone?

Unfortunately it's not that simple. I need the whole MP3 to play until I cancel it.

As I need the text message to wake me up if sleeping or be heard from another room etc.

I don't have an HD2 yet, but can't you just turn it over to stop the tone?

Can't believe no-one else is being bugged by this problem?

This happens on all htc devices (and as far as i know on all windows mobile phones), your sms tone is set to ALERTS, meaning that it will play the whole song before it stops. I think you should switch to a shorter alert tone.

It doesn't happen on all windows phones as my Kaiser could stop the song, but I was using a newer 6.5 build I guess, although I did think all 6.5 roms had the capability of stopping the mp3.
