    So i think i have found a hidden volume level. I turned the lock/unlock sound on but i noticed that i could barely hear it. I also noticed that when i press the phone button and start dialing numbers i could barely hear the sound it was making. So after playing around with my phone all morning i found a way to turn that sound up. I pressed the cyberon voice commander button and while the voice is saying "say a command" I hit the volume up button on the side of the phone and now i can hear these three sounds alot better.

    Is there a volume control for these things hidden somewhere in the menu i don't know about or is this the only way of doing this.

    It might just be a different volume level - there are 6 all together: Alarm, Ringer, Notifications, Media, System, Voice.

    If you get an app called Audio Manager, it's a good way to see what those are all set to. Then you can play around and find the one responsible for those sounds.

    I can also recommend Extended Controls: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.extendedcontrols

    Heavily customisable allows you to combine all your power control/volume control toggles in one widget that doesn't have a battery sapping refresh schedule to display the latest volume levels on the widget. Gets 5/5 from me and near as dammit everyone else thats got it :D

    Yeah that's good too. I used to use it for wifi/data toggling up until I switched to swipepad.
