    Low Ringer Volume? No Vibrate?

    Advertisement



    I have a brand new Bold, default factory settings mostly. I am using the "Normal" profile.

    When the phone rings, the sound is pathetic and low. I can see no options for changing either the ring or the volume. The phone does not vibrate when a call comes in (unless it is holstered).

    Am I missing something?

    You change those settings in Profiles>Advanced. Pretty sure it's the same as older devices. Click on your profiles icon, scroll down to Advanced, then select where you want to change the settings (phone, email, sms, etc).

    Ah I found it...you need to scroll down to find the Advanced menu item.

    Thanks, I have it working now.

    Indeed! That's what I said.

    Glad you found it!

    He's right, you're changing just the default profiles. You need go into those profiles and modify them to your liking or create a new profile. Changing the profile from normal to loud, doesn't actually change anything other than what RIM has it defaulted to. You can set up the normal profile to have louder, longer ringtones than loud if you really wanted to.

    Yep, I changed Normal since that is really the only profile I use.

    What I noticed is that different ring tones have wildly different relative volume levels. So one ringtone might sound a lot louder than another one, even though their volume is the same in the drop-down menu.

    I chose a ring tone that is more audible.
