All ringtones fade in?
Samsung Captivate, AT&T, Android 2.1 -
All my ringtones (default as well as downloaded and made myself) fade it rather than starting at normal volume from the beginning. Is this default behavior? Can this behavior be changed.
Thanks in advance for any help. Sorry for the all-to-newbie question."Without music, life would be a mistake." ~ Friedrich Nietzsche.

Appreciate the input, Kromen. It does bother me, though. Especially with voice ringtones. You end up missing the beginning. I just prefer full volume from the start. Hope I can find a way to fix this.

If you really wanted to get crazy you could edit the ringtone on your computer to start out loud and fade out to cancel the phone's fade in effect.
That's actually one of the things I tried, editing the ringtone to be very loud at the beginning. No luck. Still the same behavior. Shame. Really irritating. After further research, I've found the same that fldude99 found. It's default behavior & cannot be modified. Really horrible idea.

nobody has a way around this?? really? I get WHY they did it, but even rooted you cant change that preference by doodling with the right system folder? seems like there should be a way, I am not nearly familiar enough with the software but I think someone should put some time into this.

K, if you can't go about fixxin it that way...
...how about someone let me in on how to let it ring longer before goin to Voice Mail. I'm using Google Voice, so I don't know if I need to ditch them (I will if that is what it takes) or if there is something that will get me where I need to be.
I can counter the fade-in by simply letting ring longer...if that's possible.

Well...you may have just solved my problem with the fade in!
As it stands now, my delay to Voice Mail was set at 15...which seems like plenty of time to answer! But I set it to 30 in hopes that it would solve the issue.
Time will tell...
....although it's funny, I've had my phone ring for MAYBE 5 seconds after the fade-in, and I STILL miss and it goes to VM. So I'm a bit skeptical that this is the issue.

more and more of the newer roms, well at least the GT-I9000 ones, have removed the fade in feature.
Im using, and LOVING, Doc's ROM ported by Borgusian over at xda, V7, and there is NO fade in, right from the get go its loud...also, using blue theme and blue market, ext4/noloops, on hardcores speedmod 500hz, just fyi

Ringtone too large
I liked your suggestion. I tried doing this yesterday (creating a ringtone with silence in the beginning) and then uploading it to my phone. The problem I ran across was by putting extra time into the ringtone, the ringtone became too large of a file size to use as a ringtone. Do you have any suggestions to my problem? Thanks.

Never had the problem with 2.1, rooted and went to Froyo and now I Facing the fade-in situation. Worst, if I set it to driving mode, the announcement would come after two rings... kind of late I would think. I tried Ringo Pro, and did everything on the proper sequence for voice announcement, now I don't remember if it took the fade in away.
