    Ringing problems (volume and duration)

    Advertisement



    I'm sick of buying phones that hardly be heard in a mildly loud environment and I want to fix this. I don't wear super tight pants so rarely is felt.

    My problem is that the ringer volume is on high but is still super low. I can't even hear it from a couple rooms away. Added onto which, the ringer only rings ONE TIME! it goes vibrate, vibrate, ring vibrate, vibrate, vibrate, vibrate

    and this goes for all ring tones I have tried, including a couple downloaded ones

    any ideas? I'd really like to have a ringer worth a damn

    Here's what you do.

    1) Get some ringtones.
    Go to any of these website.
    http://www.tuneusin.com/Main.html
    http://www.mobile41.com/bbringtones.htm
    http://www.rtsoup.com/
    http://www.moviewavs.com/

    2) Get Audacity from Sourceforge. Just Google using the searchterm Audacity Sourceforge

    3) Edit the ringtone in Audacity. The first (and only the first time) Audacity will want you to put a lame_enc.dll file somewhere on your system. I put mine in the Audacity folder. Once past this, open the file, press ctrl-A to select the whole file,then in the menu go to Effect > Amplify and increase the volume. Put a check in the Allow clipping box.

    4) Save as an mp3 and copy it out to your phone.

    5) This will work for any phone that uses mp3 files, not just Blackberries.

    thanks! that definitely made it a good bit louder and I can use my own music instead of buying the stupid things. I'd like it a little bit louder, but I guess the little speaker is only capable of so much. is there a way to make it vibrate more?

    Choose something loud from your music collection, then go to

    makeownringtone.com

    and make a ringtone.
    This tool automatically does normalization of your ringtone i.e. "Bringing to highest possible loudness without distortions" but with your requirements you may want to try some additional filters like bass, etc.
