    Samsung galaxy s3. I am very hard of hearing. I wear hearing aids. Without them I hear nothing. I cannot hear the phone ringing or the alarm clock going off even when I try to sleep with the aids in my ears. Wearing the aids in my ears as I tend to sleep with my head on it's side, the aid bruises the inside of my ear which is very painful. I have tried different melodies and I believe I have maxed the volume on the device. I have read of volume booster apps for the internal devise but understand that if not careful they could blow the speakers. Also is there a device that could amplify the sound externally. I am wondering if you android folks could help me out on this. It would surely help my disability if something could be done. :))

    A good external speaker will help more than any app. You can get a good one for like 10-20 bucks or, if you have a pair of computer speakers you're already set, just plug the jack in

    Thanks Tokenpoke. I do have computer speakers and will give a try. I am not sure if the jacks are the same size but will find out soon enough. Thank you so very much for your reply. :))

    If it works on your computer, it should work on your phone, assuming the speakers use a 3.5mm jack, that is.

    Have you tried having the vibration turned on and having your phone under your pillow? Don't know if it would be enough to wake you. It works for me but I'm a very light sleeper and I only have one ear that has such a deficiency.
    Good luck
