    Anyone had issues lowering the notification volume? I keep lowering it in settings, but it doesn't seem to be working. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Make sure you don't have a smart action changing the volume. I couldn't figure out why my volume kept defaulting to high for my ringtone even though I kept turning it down, and then I realized in my Home Smart Action I had a setting that changed volume to high.

    Yep, its a loud phone and I love it. I am so sick of phones with anemic speakers. It drove me bugged with my Rezound and drove me bat nuts insane with my Galaxy Nexus.

    Another sound related issue. I believe that Handcent is causing a problem. Both times I have updated it and it appears that on both occasions it wiped out my ringtone and notification sounds. Each time I had to manually reset them. I've got an email into them.

    Its loud...but have some wimpy alarm ringtones, like the G Nex. I had to bring over my rooster alarm from my RAZR.

    The G Nex just had a softer speaker in general.

    About notification volume, you might wanna try a volume app that can adjust system volume.

    Yeah the tones in general sound like a bunch of rejects from a techno MP3. I've wound up using the tones that someone years ago lifted from a blackberry bold.

    How did you get the rooster sound out of your old Phone, i am trying to do this exact thing... i have a razr Maxx HD and the alarms on there are seriously lacking bite.

    Depending on what file manager you use, it might be a lil different. But its in system/media/audio/alarms. I'm rooted too and used Root Explorer so I dont know if that makes a difference. Some folders you might cant get in unless you're rooted.

    if you have a file manager app than copy your ring tones to the 'alarms' folder.
    As for transferring the ring tones, either hook your old phone to your pc or use a cloud storage service such as Dropbox.
    you could also email them to yourself.
    If you are using the built-in Files app than copy the rings tones to the appropriate folder on the 'device storage' (the alarm, notification, and ring tone folders are already there)

    I appreciate that phone can be loud, but there should also be the option to make it soft. 1 notch up from vibrate is as loud as my Nexus was on full volume. This phone doesn't do soft/quite whatsoever. No reason it can't do both loud and soft. One notch up from vibrate should be barely audible.

    I came to the Droid Razr Maxx from the Droid 2 and I'd love to transfer some of my old ringtones to my new phone. I can't see the files under the files app or on my computer when I connect it. Can you help? Thanks!
