    I can barely hear the alarm when it goes off... anyone know how to increase the volume?

    It stays the same no matter if the ringer is set to loud or silent. I've been trying to figure this out and haven't had much luck.

    Thanks in advance.

    Go into the alarm you are choosing, and when you are setting the tone for it (I use snooze) turn it up with the volume buttons on the side, make sure you turn it up when the tone select screen is up, or else it wont work. Just did that 2 seconds ago...lol

    It sounds like you're not setting the alarm volume separately. If so, do this: open the alarm screen > click on the alarm you want to set > click on alarm sound > use the volume rocker to adjust alarm volume.

    Edit - Alxmlr just beat me to it.

    Open your alarm clock app. Press alarm sound, highlight the sound you want (do not press ok yet) your sound should start to play. Just press the volume rocker up or down to the level you want. Now press ok and then done. If you download AudioManager from the market it will give you the option to adjust it from there. :D

    I use the Audio Manager Widget, it let's you control volume for Alarm, Music, Alerts, Ringer, System and Voice Call volume all separately.

    When you set an alarm, there is an option to check "Volume: use increasing volume". This uses a "gentle alarm" which starts very softly, and slowly ramps up for about 30 seconds. This may be why the alarm sounded so faint for you. If you turn this feature off, then the alarm starts at a louder level.
