Notification to play sound

 So I've set up my app to have a repeating alarm, daily, as the user
decides, using AlarmManager. I want the user to select a ringtone for
it. This works fine, too. I store the string of the Uri they selected
in a preference to pull it back when my alarm gets run. To pull it
back, I do this:

NotificationManager notifManager = (NotificationManager)
Notification notif = new Notification(-notification stuff-);
SharedPreferences settings = getSharedPreferences(PREFS_NAME, 0);
String reminderSound = settings.getString(getString
(R.string.RingtoneReminder), null);
if(reminderSound != null){
        notif.sound = Uri.parse(reminderSound);

So I set the Notification's sound field to the Uri of my notification.
Later, when I call the notifManager.notify(rowId, notif), the
notification still pops up, but the sound doesn't play.

How do I get the sound to play?

When using AIDL-based async services I've seen various examples when
the service is bound/unbound on Activity's oncreate/ondestroy, onstart/

acceptable recovery strategy when attempt using the service fails?

Thanks you for your suggestions
