    Usually my phone is on silent, and last night, I turned the ringtone volume up. So, I set my notification sound when I receive a message. Whenever I receive a message though, the sound is VERY faint and almost silent.

    The media volume is all the way up...

    Is this a phone or Handcent problem?

    Notifications aren't controlled by media volume, they're related to ringtone volume.

    They actually use a separate volume called "notification volume," but you can only access that with an app like Sound Manager. Usually it's tied to ringtone volume though. (You raise ringtone volume, it raises notification volume accordingly.)

    Hm, thanks.

    I didn't have this small issue before the 2.1 update or the Handcent update.

    You can actually separate the ringer volume and the notification volume, or you can put them both together. If you go to Menu>Settings>Sounds and Display>(make sure your sound profile is set to normal) Ringer volume. Once here, if the check mark is checked for "use incoming call volume for notifications" your ring and notifications will be controlled the same. If not, there should be two bars there, one for incoming call and one for notification. You can toggle between them. I just prefer to keep them the same.

    also any takes on the lag between the notifications and the pop up menu showing up? My phone freezes the I get the vibrate/ringtone and 30seconds~1minute later I get the pop up...?
