Ringer Volume - is there an easier way to adjust the volume?

I just got my phone today and it looks like the only way to change the ringer volume is to go through a series of 6 steps (according to the user guide).

Change the default volume for calls

You can increase or decrease the default volume for calls. The higher the volume percentage, the louder the volume.

1. In the phone, press the
Menu key.

2. Click Options.3. Click

General Options.

4. Change the Default Call Volume field.5. Press the

Menu key.

6. Click Save.

 

Has anyone found a quicker way? I don't want to have to go through these steps everytime I enter and exit a meeting not to mention the hazards involved if I need to adjust the volume while I'm driving.

 

I would appreciate any help available.

  

Thank you.

Re: Ringer Volume - is there an easier way to adjust the volume?

The mentioned steps are required to set Default Call Volume...meaning in call volume not the ringer tone.

 

To increase/decrease ringer volume follow the below steps -

  1. Profiles
  2. Advanced
  3. highlight Active profile
  4. click Menu and select Edit
  5. go to Phone
  6. click Menu and select Edit
  7. under Out of Holster select Volume: choose High/Medium/Low.

Re: Ringer Volume - is there an easier way to adjust the volume?

Once you set the default options, the easiest way is to go to the main menu, use the trackball to go to the top right and highlight the speaker, click on it and choose which setting you want (ie loud, quiet, phone only, etc.)

 

This is the quickest way that I have found.

 

Hope this helps.

Boy, that's even longer than the way listed in my book. I was really hoping for a faster way. Thank you again for replying.

Re: Ringer Volume - is there an easier way to adjust the volume?

Thank you gushgirl. Apparently, this is the fastes way. I love my new phone, but I am very disappointed by all the steps to reduce the ringer volume. Every other phone I have ever had (there have been many) I could always adjust ringer volume with buttons on the side of the phone. Thank you again for helping.
