Help! Ring Tune Voleme

Ihave an 8830 World Edition. Any ringer tune I try is too soft. I have the volume set to 100% and my profile volume on high. They play loud when I preview them, but not when the phone rings.

Check for the latest software for your device....I remember a post stating that it corrects this well known problem for the 8800 series phone.

Re: Help! Ring Tune Voleme

This has continued to be an issue with the 8800 series devices even into OS which is the latest beta release out, if you can find it.


Here is the problem, the device has 2 small speakers inside it. When you preview the tone in the media player it plays on both speakers, but when the device actually uses the tone as a ringer it only plays on one speaker, see the problem?


At the moment there is only one decent workaround, and that is make your own ringtones and boost the gain on them. Honestly you have the best smartphone in the world in your hand, customize it, make that little gem your own.


The best app that I have found for doing this is FREE (my favorite price)and can be found here.

There is only two reasons to ever get into this field either as a hobby or a career, frustration and fascination. Unfortunately no matter which one has led you here today, I guarantee it will eventully lead to the other.
