Android :: How To Play Ring Tone / Alarm Sound In Android?
Apr 11, 2010
I have been looking everywhere how to play a ring tone/alarm sound in android. I press a button and I want to play a ring tone/alarm sound. I could not find a easy, straightforward sample. Yes, I already looked at Alarm clock source code. but it is not straightforward and I cannot compile it.
What i am after is some suggestions for the best app in your opinion for these that i need ? 1 - The best Music App 2 - The best Radio App 3 - The best Alarm clock app that can wake you up with radio also 4 - The best Ring tone/email/voicemail/text, sounds alert app 5 - If you were stranded on a desert island with just your phone and 1 app which would it be?
Using the default alarm clock, this morning i noticed my alarm was only vibrating and is no longer playing any sound. Has anyone else had this problem? I have the volume on all other applications turned up, not sure why this is suddenly doing this.
Are there any good alarm applications for the X10i?
Basically I use my phone as an alarm to get up for work. My old Nokia N96 I could set the alarm and then switch the phone off at night and the alarm would still go off on time. This does not seem to be the case with the X10i. It doesn't even go off when the phones in airplane mode which is poor. I just don't want to have to leave my phone on overnight in case it rings and i wake up.
Are there any good alarm apps that allows you to turn the phone off and the alarm would still ring at 6.30 for work?
last night I got tired of waiting for the 2.2 update so I installed unrevoked forever, 2.15 radio and the third wave rom from adrenyline. After all that went smoothly I decided to throw the standard clock undervolt hydra kernel in there too. After I did that I got sporadic reboots and the screen became very unresponsive. Also it seems to cause the phone to freeze whenever it has to wake up to play a notification sound or alarm...
Now I have to say that I had the same problem about a month ago when I tried one of the older Hydra Kernels, but I figured it would be fixed with the newer ones. My question is it seems that I am the only one with problems, all the posts I read about these things are positive with little or no issues. Am I installing it incorrectly somehow? Is anyone else having issues too?
I'm using my new HTC Desire and I have encountered a rather frustrating issue. I have tried searching everywhere but can't find anything that can help me yet. I have found that whenever the phone is charging, the phone is completely mute and will not ring. Likewise, any sms's will go unnoticed as no ring tones/ alerts sound. The phone still operates like normal while charging and will retrieve calls, it's just the phone stays completely silent
I'm new to the forum and also a new android user ( just got the phone this afternoon). After played with it for a couple hours, I still can't figure out how to set customized ring tones. All I see in settings is the preloaded ring tones. My question is : How do I load my own ring tones and use them? Do i just create a ring tone folder and what should i do from there? Or there are other ways.
Any apps that allow you to change rings tones of Contacts? I don't need one that creates ring tones, has ring tones, etc. Just one that will let me have phone calls use different ring tones depending on who the contact is.
I previously used Handcent but have switched back to the stock manèging app for reason likely only important to me.My question is I can't seem to figure out a way to assign a particular ringtone(notification sound) to a particular contact. I know it has to be right under my nose but I have exhausted the ways that I know.
I have the desire for about 3 months now and i m loving it. however, what irritates me is that every time when a sms is received, the phone only vibrates once, while the ring tone still goes on. i have tried the smart vibrate app. although it can set the length of the vibrate but it will still vibrate even if i have read the sms. any one can recommend any better apps? also it seems to take a long time to power off my phone. is it due to running apps? but i have killed the apps b4 i shut down....
Is there a way to mute the ring tone of an incoming call while I am deciding what to do with the call? This morning some idiot rang me at 0150h. I was fumbling to mute the tone before it woke up the whole house. But I could not find any option. In meetings, it is a nuisance if the ringing blares away while I make my way out of the room to take the call.
For example, I've decided that when I get my DX I want "Uncle F***a" for my ring tone and another short audio clip for my text tone. Can I do this or do I have to purchase and download ring/text tones from Verizon?
I have AT&T now, so I don't really know how it works for Verizon and/or if there is a way to do this with the DX.
It looks like I am obliged to let my phone turned on to make it ring for the alarm clock. Am I right? At least, this is what seems to happen with Math Alarm Clock (I did not test yet with the built-in alarm clock).
When I make a call there is a short, odd ring-tone that occurs just after I press Dial and before the normal ringing sound begins to indicate the call is going through.
It's about 1/2 second long, can be quite loud sometimes, and is kind of high-pitched....sorry, it's hard to describe. The tone modulates up and down quite fast - da-dum-da-dum-dum (if you can imagine).
I tried re-programming the phone, and also updating roaming, and it's still there every time I make a call. I haven't made any changes to call settings to speak of...never had this on my D1.
Im gradually setting up all my programs and apps, there is so much to do its taking a while. But i was wondering if there is a way of adding a new tone that I can use for my alarm clock. I can only seem to get the ones that are already in the phone and cant see any options to change this?
I have downloaded three ringtones and none of them currently play what they are supposed to. They play a default tone whether they are set as the ringer or if they are selected directly from the ringtone list.
Any way to make the alarm ring even when the phone is completely turned off. I had a problem with my phone that it couldn't charge when it was turned on, and I found out that it was the socket's problem. I got it fixed. But during this time, I had to use a very old Nokia as an alarm. Is there any way to make the alarm ring even when the phone is off?
I read a few similar threads, and some said no. But aren't there apps that schedule automatic power on and off? Some phones actually have this built-in. Is there an alarm clock app that has the feature to power the phone on and ring?
I have a rooted Samsung Galaxy SII (i9100G) with CM11.
Tried to set an alarm on the default clock app on the Legend. To my surprise, it never went off when it was supposed to. When I tested it I was quite shocked to find that the built-in/default sounds wouldn't play. When it put I enabled the vibrate checkbox, it began to vibrate at the set time but there was no sound. So I downloaded an alarm app from the droid marketplace and it worked fine. Even the default Legend sounds were working in the app. When I went back to the built-in alarm, the sounds started playing normally. Not sure what could've caused this. Could it have something to do with the task-killer?
I have looked through the forums but couldn't spot anything for this one so here goes... Is there any way to use a custom sound as your notification tone? I cant for the life of me seem to work out how to do it unless im missing something really obvious! I downloaded the "you've got mail" wav and transfered it to my Magic but after that i'm stuck!
I just put an mp3 file, that I want to use as an Alarm sound, onto my phone. When I go to choose the alarm sound, all I get is a choice of about 6 quick sounds. I know in some apps, when you start them for the first time it gives you an option to choose what app used to do certain tasks. I might have chosen the wrong option and made it default. How do I reset this?
This morning when my alarm was supposed to go off, it didn't. I happened to wake up. I could see the alarm icon flashing on the screen. Later I set a new alarm and no sound. I tried dialing my phone and got no ring tone. I checked on the settings and everything was correct. No silent mode, etc. So then i shut the phone down and restarted it. Then everything was working fine. But..the alarm sound not working or phone sound not working is not good. You could not tell its not working until its too late.
I had my notification tone set to a sound from a soundboard. I had downloaded from Android market, I have got sick of it and uninstalled the soundboard and set a different tone but now I get no notification tone at all even though it shows that I have a new notification tone set.
I wanted to put my own ringtones on my phone so I used Ringdroid do do so and this worked fine for the incoming calls tone. However when i added one for my notifications, it wont play for sms messages, It does play for the like of recieved emails and such though. The tone is listed as my default notification tone so I'm not sure where I'm going wrong.
I just got this Kaleor alarm clock. It is fantastic, very customizable. I set the alarm ringtone to a song I would like to wake up to. When the alarm goes off, the song that should play is preceded by a rather annoying alarm bell type noise. After that goes off (which wakes me up in an uncomfortable manner), my song plays immediately following. How do I stop the annoying Alarm sound preceding all of my set alarm ringtones?
Im making an app, and i want it to make a sound when a activity is opened , the sound file is in R.raw.sound_file , if someone could do some example code to make my app play a sound that would be great.
