Ringer Volume, Vibrate, Silent...annoying by design?

Ringer volume too loud?
location: droidradar.com - date: November 10, 2012
My wife just got a brand-new MAXX HD, and in setting it up we've noticed that the ringer is REALLY, REALLY loud. Like twice as loud as any other media. Even set to the lowest possible setting (1 notch above "silent") it sounds like any other phone at full blast. It was so loud (combined with playing from the phone when headphones were plugged in) that we thought it might be broken and we'd have to return it.
Is this a normal thing? Is the phone's ringer just obnoxiously loud (and if so, how come no one ever mentioned it)? Or might something be broken that we should get replaced while it's under warranty? Worse case: does anyone have good suggestions for ways to reduce the volume of the ringer to reasonable levels?
Thanks in advance!
Disable Ringer Volume control and change to media
location: droidradar.com - date: April 6, 2014
One of the most annoying bugs I have with Android... No option to change this.
The volume buttons/rocker on my phone does not allow me to change to media only. If no media is playing it only changes the ringer volume.
Imagine this setting, in my car I have volume all the way up, I get out of car and put on headphones, volume is too loud. I ether play music to where my ears bust or I go into settings and change the volume there. When I try to turn it down immediately, it changes the ringer until I let that volume display disappear. Which means I'm stuck listening to it too loud until I let it disappear to where I can change the media volume.
My little rant is over, how do I force the volume buttons to only be media! FOREVER!
ringer volume question. how to make it twice as loud
location: droidradar.com - date: July 19, 2010
I can't hardly hear the phone ring when its in my pocket. Is there an app or a hack to somehow change the phones settings. I was reading on crackberry that they could get into the software and make it louder. Or do we need to root the x for this to happen?
Anyway to increase Ringer Volume
location: droidmania.com - date: August 22, 2010
I had an original Droid before getting my Droid X. I am using the exact same custom ringtones I made for my Droid on my Droid X and my Droid X is much, much lower on ringer volume, even at max setting. Due to this, I am missing tons of text messages and a bunch of phone calls when I am in a place that has even slight noise.
On my Droid, I could hear my ringer even in the noisiest of places. I can't hardly hear my Droid X in the quiet places. Are there any tips, tricks, or hacks that can increase the overall volume on the X?
Ringer Volume Lock? Other volume question
location: droidmania.com - date: December 4, 2009
Is there any way to lock the ringer volume? I keep my phone on vibrate always... well, I try to, but sometimes I hit the volume button on accident and it would be nice to not have to adjust it. Not only do I not want the phone to ring, but I don't want it to not vibrate (all the way down).
Also, I still don't always understand when I can adjust other volumes, like Media Volume. Sometimes I start an app or music and the volume is too loud. It seems like sometimes I can't adjust the volume till after it starts playing.
Link Ringer Volume and Notification Volume
location: droidradar.com - date: November 27, 2012
I just got my GS3 on Black Friday, and I LOVE it! I am coming from an EVO 3D. On the 3D (and every other smart phone that I've ever had), the ringer volume and notification volume were tied together. Is there a way to do this on the GS3? I usually turn down my volume at work, but noticed that my notification volume was still loud. I had to go in to the volume settings, and change the notification volume separately. Is there a wat to link the two volume controls together? This seems like a fairly simple thing to ask for.
Link Notification and Ringer Volume
location: droidmania.com - date: July 10, 2012
I searched for this but was surprised that no results came up - theres a lot of other interest on the web.
I recently upgraded to a galaxy s3 - Im running ICS 4.0.4 LFB according to kIES.
Is there a way to link the ringer and notification volumes so I can use the volume buttons to control both together?
I used to have this problem with my galaxy s, and used an app (mySettings?) to get round this problem. Ive tried this, and other apps, for the S3 and none seem to work.
Any help would be appreciated.
Why is my RINGER VOLUME grayed out and now nonfunctioning??
location: droidmania.com - date: August 29, 2010
Hi everyone. I attended a seminar and simply turned the volume all the way down (i.e. Menu, Sound & Display, then Ringer Volume).
But when I got out of the seminar, and went back to Ringer Volume, it's now grayed out as is Phone ringtone, Phone Vibrate, Notification Sound and all the others below until you get to Emergency Tone and below, where those are back to being bright white.
i.e. now when I touch the grayed out Ringer Volume, it does nothing and I'm stuck with vibrate only.
What's going on??
Any way to increase RINGER VOLUME
location: droidradar.com - date: July 13, 2011
Any way to turn up the volume of the ringer beyond the normal settings.
Music volume is fine, I just need to increase the ringer volume so I don't miss calls?
