    What the heck was HTC thinking when not making separate sliders for notification volume and ringer volume? I've had 2 other HTC Android phones and this is the first one where you could not unlink the ringer/notification volumes.
    I'm hoping someone tells me I'm wrong and you can set separate volumes!

    I have not found a way to separate them. But then again on my old phones I always checked the box for make notifications volume the same as the ringer volume.

    Its really stupid. My ringtone was so low compared to the notifications that I could barely hear it at that level, but I didnt want to turn it up because the notifications were so loud already (and way more frequent). So I went through the trouble of editing the ringtone file with some software myself to make it louder so it matched the amplitude of the notification file.

    Its really dumb that I had to do all of that, but I thought it was easier than using one of the many apps that are out there to help this problem. They all seemed to require customizing profiles and toggling between them and overriding the system profiles and I really didnt want to go through all of that just to match notification and ringtone volumes.

    I believe this is a "feature" of ICS and not something HTC did. I might be wrong though.

    You're probably right, but we'd need to use other ICS phones to be sure.
    Another thing that's missing are the advanced power management settings my last HTC (2.3.4) phone had. You used to be able to turn off wifi, sync, dim screen, etc once the battery level reached a certain point (30%, 20% etc).
    At first I thought it was HTC but now I think it might be ICS vs. Gingerbread.

    I have this sneaking suspicion that so far I like Gingerbread more than ICS. At least the CM7 version of gingerbread. Things just seemed to make more sense. Like, for example, did anyone realize that you need to ultimately configure your ringtones in the "Personalize" menu under the "Sound" tab, down at the bottom of the screen? It took me weeks to figure that out, as my default email notifications kept reverting back to something I hadn't chosen, and then finally I stumbled on it. Seems to be no rhyme or reason for this and a lot of other things. The linked volumes on ringtones and notifications is just plain stupid, in my opinion...


    Sounds profiles unlinks them.

    Can you elaborate on that?
    I just went in to Sound-> Profiles and chose each one (Normal, Vibrate, Silent) and for all three, Ringtone & Notifications stayed the same as one slider.

    You need Audio Control. It will give you separate ringer and notification volumes. I love it and use it every day. Can't imagine Android without it.
