Change ringer and notification volume together?

    One of the things I find annoying about the Captivate is the separate volumes for rings and notifications. When I lower the volume with the volume rocker switch, it only lowers the ring volume. Is there a way to set a global volume so that changing the volume changes ALL volumes together?

    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!


  2. I use an app from the Market called "Quick Settings". It gives you access to all sound volumes (also letting you link ringer & notifications), wireless settings, brightness and battery in one location.

  3. Yes, this is possible. If you do a search for my screen name you should be able to find detailed instructions on how I figured it out.

    You must be rooted to do it, and the process is almost exactly the same as enabling side loading by changing the settings database. Use root explorer to make a copy of your settings.db file then move it to your sd card. Open it on your computer, find whet it says notification volume same as ring (these aren't the exact words) and then change the 0 to a 1. Then move the updated settings.db file back to the original location.

    I like audio manager. Widget and settings for all audio.

    You can use custom sound profiles with Simple Sound Widget. Not exactly what you were asking for, but it works about the same.

    There is an option for this in settings in Froyo.
