    Well its been a heck of a week in the phone world for me. I had an iPhone 4 and went to the Inspire for more real estate for my failing eyes. But I had the low volumes of the stock notifications. Then I got the Motorola Atrix... notification volume is AWESOME but the screen is too small due to the increased resolution. So now I am back to the Inspire.

    Can someone help me with the notification volume controls etc... I am an Android newbie. I need something so I can keep my phone in my pocket and hear the notifications.

    Apparently I am blind and deaf :)

    Any help would be appreciated.

    The best scenario is to download zedge and use those tones they are 10x louder

    @earthdog, there is a setting in notifications that says something like "use same notification volume as ringtone". Turn that OFF, then you'll get a bar to choose the sound level for notifications...

    Agree with AC on using Zedge for louder tones. I also use a free program called Quick Settings for my volume control. (among other things) It's highly customizable and works easily.

    My only complaint that I have with this phone is the volume even when I use ringtones from my SD card the phone is so quiet. I took back the Atrix to get this one now I am wondering if I did the right thing. Help please! The guy at AT&T told me I could only do an exchange one time in 30 days even though I bought it outright. So am I sol since I have already done one?

    Did they give you a hard time exchanging twice in the 30 days? I started with the Atrix then my friend got the HTC and the screen was amazaing so I exchanged it for the inspire and at the time the rep told me that he hopes that I like it because there is only one exchange in the 30 days even though I bought it off contract. Is that true? I am having regrets the sound thing is a huge deal to me.

    This is not true! I have returned my blackberry torch for the Inspire and have already returned one inspire. They said if I wish to try another phone if the Inspire gives me problems I can within the thirty day period.

    That's good to know! I just figured out it was the sound clip I was trying to use after trying it on my friends Inspire I uploaded it to myxer and fixed it. Lol. So I will be keeping the phone for now.

    If I return the phone will they charge me a restocking fee? If they do I might as well sell it on Ebay.

    You also might want to try "missed reminders" app. I especially like it for missed text messages, cuz if you happen not to hear it, could be awhile. I also set it for missed calls. Customizable from every 30secs to beyond....even different tone for reminder. give it a try! BTW my husband works in construction and has the general lee horn (zedge) for his text notification WICKED LOUD!!!!!
