    I really hate that sms doesn't have its own volume control.

    I hate that if I want to turn it down that's only possibly by changing media volume.

    I'm listening to media! And i don't want the sms interruptions to that to be so loud.

    Which phone?
    Which version of android?
    Which carrier?
    Which SMS app?

    The notifications should be coming through the "notifications" section, not media.
    I tend to solve this by putting the phone into vibrate mode when doing movies/music.

    Welcome to the Android Central Ask A Question forum!

    Pull down your notification shade, press and hold the volume button briefly to open the Sounds and Vibration settings, and tap Volume, you'll get the option to raise or lower your Notifications volume to a level you find acceptable, or mute just the Notifications. You can also set the phone to Vibrate, adjust your Media Volume, and other things.
