Notification volume work around

    notification volume is tied to media volume, not notification volume. the temp work around I have is (using Quick Settings) check the box that links Ringer volume for notifications. This is a work around provided you are using ringer volume on max.

    I cross posted this on xda with links to htc forums and a facebook thread. I encourage others to find ways to let htc know.

    I'm not one of the one's who had a complaint about the notification volume to begin with, but either way, this is a good tip.

    i'm still a bit mixed on the notification level... I liked how loud the sidekick was, I knew from across the room that I had a msg... but it also was a bit obnoxious... so...

    we'll try this work around
    thanks :)
     
  4. yes but you also have an LED light on the inspire so if you dont here it you see it so in the end how can you miss a notification?

    that's why I didn't say "fix" in my title. it helps... it's not optimal.

    Could you provide more detailed instructions? I can't find that check box. I'm always missing my text messages. I hear the ringer just fine.

    Interesting, I always thought the Notification sound was a bit low. My wife also was complaining that she could never tell when she got a text. (Keeps phone in purse at work.)

    I hope i am correct in what I've said and that at least one other person can confirm.

    On quick settings app, click on the volume control toggle. There should be a check box to link notification volume to ringer volume.

    Update: i think you can link the 2 volumes through the regular settings. Click on the volume setting.

    I might be crazy, but are there two different volume levels for notifications? A lower level for when the device knows its being handled and then there is a higher volume level for when the device is idle? Maybe I'm just hearing things. :D

    Mine seems too loud..im always trying to turn the fricken thing off (its embarrasing) but it always comes back if i turn the volume back up.

    I found it funny that people were complaining it was too low..

    I look at my phone often enough that i RARELY miss a message....i dont need my phone beeping at me. Coming from an iphone..im preconditioned to just check it regularly...

    This workaround doesn't work for me. No matter what setting I use, the notification volume is always tied to the media volume. Pretty ridiculous bug.

    the LED does no good if the phone is facing down (where I tend to keep it for fear that something is going to be dropped/fall on my purdy screen)...

    the motorola had an LED around the USB port... but I do prefer the smaller discreet LED of the inspire

    but yes I changed settings and still doesn't seem to help :-/...

    Found it. Menu -> Sound -> Volume drop down.

    There are sliders for all volume controls. My notifications volume was set to 75% while all others were set to 100%. I just moved Notifications to 100% also. I'll see how that works. Thanks.

    Hi,
    I noticed all the volumes where low and I then turned off the pocket mode setting and
    The quiet on pick up and its much louder now. I think the pocket mode
    Is the culprit

    It seems like nothing I do makes the sound louder. I use my own mp3 ringtones and I cant hardly hear it. Do I have a bad phone?
     

  16. Did you try zedge?

    The fact is I shouldnt have to for the money this phone cost. Through the years I have collected many ring tones and I should be able to use them. When I had the BB 9700 it worked flawles. Sure it didn't have the bells and whistles but it never faild me or let me down. Sorry to rant just disappointed in my Android experiences so far with both the Atrix and Inspire. The problem I had with the Atrix was the led notifications could not be set for specific things now the sound issue on the Inspire. UGH!
    Sorry I am so picky just have high expectations.
     

  18. It's ok man. Zedge is free and you can upload the ringtones on your pc and then log in and download to phone

    I am not sure what I did but I was just playing with the phone and was able to get the settings just right so I can now hear the phone down the hall with the TV on. I guess I just get frusterated to easy. But I still hope they come out with an update to help the sound issues. lol
     

  20. Holy crap figure it out let us know !!!

    It's louder but still sounds like crap like a tin can.
     

  22. Hmm that sounds like you have a bad speaker

    Possibly, I might have to have my friend play the same ringtone on his Inspire to see if it sounds the same.
     

  24. Yea def do it see if it sounds different
