Samsung Galaxy S :: Phone Doesen't Ring Right / Make It Ring Loudly From Start?
Jul 18, 2010
Buyed a samsung galaxy s a couple days ago
and had no peoblems woth it except today
noticed then when somebody calls me rhe
phone rings quietly at first and then rongs
normal, the sound gradualy increases from small
volume to gighter , how can i .make it ring loudly
from the start ?
I miss my Blackberry choices for notification, in particular, phone only. A quick one press button for ring, vibrate, ring phone only, silent. I use profile and find it a little too in depth. I want something simple. I also think there may be a gremlin or two as I have found my settings changed without my doing anything.
I've noticed that when I have my bluetooth headset connected to my phone, the headset rings when someone calls but the phone doesn't. Is there a way I can make them both ring in case I'm not wearing my headset?
All the apps I have found, to make your phone ring to help you find it, require sending an SMS from another phone. Doesn't help much when I am at home and can't find my phone. Is there an app to find my phone using my PC? Like, send an email? Or maybe there is an app for my PC that sends an SMS? I can't find that either.
My desire will not always ring the sms ring notifier when i recieve texts, it annoyed me so much that i decided to do a warranty swap, and the new one does the same thing!is this a standard android thing? it seems to me that if i have recieved or sent a text to somebody within 30 minutes, it will not ring, as though it expects me to be hovering over my phone staring at it for a reply, is this a normal issue? and is there a way to fix it?
I am trying to port cwm to the galaxy ring virgin mobile and i have a complete system dumb through adb but i need to find the recovery partition of my phone ive found system and cache and all the others but there is 4 un named partitions that have 8 mb each i dont want to pick and choose and mess it up. it seems like im the only one trying to do devolopement for this device. i have a feeling this device can handle cm10.1 or atleast 10 it has the 3.4 kernel 4.1.2 jellybean touchwiz 1.4 ghz single core processor.
I'm new to Droid and the interface but am hoping I'm just missing something obvious. How do I make my DroidX vibrate for text messages but, at the same time, ring for calls? At work, I want to know about calls but texts can typically wait.
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.
I have searched before posting this thread so please forgive me if I missed it somewhere. I have a stock Moment running cl14. I have made ring tones & placed them in the appropriate folders. Sometimes when I receive a phone call, the only way I know it is because my bluetooth will beep in my ear. The phone lights up & caller id kicks in but I get no sound & no vibrate. I can call the phone & actually see the symbol for "silent mode" pop up & disappear when the phone rings. I then have to go to the Sound & Display tab & re-choose the ring tone I already have selected from the list to get audible ring tones. Can anyone shed light into this?
Also sometimes my personalized ring tones for contacts will not play, or more like play the 1st time they call & play the default ring tone the 2nd time they call.
I am hoping this is just a setting somewhere I am missing. While I am on the Internet my Moment will not let me know if someone is calling. It sends the caller directly to voicemail without even ringing on their end. I have only had the phone for 4 days after switching from a Blackberry Curve. I went back and forth trying to decide if I wanted the Moment or the Tour. I chose the Moment but if the phone will not ring while I am surfing the Internet...it really is not going to work out.
I have a ringtone set for all call but when the call comes in it wil start to ring then go silent or very very quite i have tried the defualt ringer as well and same result? I have the ringer set to the highest it can go and still seems quite.
All these default Android ringers are too singy-songy or musical. I miss the ringers my old flip phones had that, you know, sounded like a phone ringing. Anyone know where I can find, say, a Samsung or Sanyo ringer pack? Or a bunch of standard cell phone ringers? I've searched the android market and several apps therein and can't find what i'm looking for.
I set my phone to talk the callers name or the phone number of the caller if the incoming call is not on my contacts list.I have tried for ways to take the phone back to a normal ring without success. I do not want people hearing who the call is from.I am at a loss as to how to shut this feature down.
Had my phone confiscated by the judge in the courthouse today. Phone was on vibrate only, I was listening to voicemails, and received an incoming call. Phone RANG -- not my normal ringtone, but rang nevertheless.
Is there a way to make custom ringtones easily and send them to your phone? This is my first real smartphone (had a Storm gen 1 before this, it didn't work often enough for me to consider it my first) and I'm enjoying it but I'm a bit of a nub.
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.
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.
Okay so i created a folder on my sd card called ringers, worked great for allowing me to use my mp3 files that i croped for my ringtones, however when the phone rings it doesnt ring at the desired volume from the begining, it vibrates only for 1 pulse then the volume slowly comes in from min to the desired level it is as if it is set to escalating. I have searched through all the settings but if there is a way to turn this off i have missed it. I know the mp3 file doesnt escalate because i use the same file on my moment and it rings at full volume from the beginning.
What I am needing is some ring tones other than the default ones that come on this phone. I have found a few on the Market but so far none are filling the bill as to what I need. Basically I have a little hearing loss so prefer basic tone type ring tones rather than a tune or clip from some song or movie. Funny but I kinda like the ring tone of the old standard phone ringer. Can someone suggest something on the Market or some other alternative? I suppose it's as easy as downloading anything using my computer and sending it to my cell phone and using it from there.
Can you have a ring tone for certain people in you're address book? For example one for my husband and another for my mom? I have music on my music player app but I can't find where I add it on the contacts. Is there a way to delete some of the programs that came with the phone? Like the ones I know I will never use. I know from my home screen I can drag them to the trash but that doesn't delete them from the applications screens.
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.
Has anyone had this problem? Sometimes, when I receive calls, the phone will ring 2 or three times before going to voicemail - it is almost like I am rejecting the calls, which I know I'm not, as it tends to happen when I'm not even touching the phone.
Phone details are as follows: Samsung Galaxy O2 UK Firmware 1.5 Baseband I7500XXII4 Kernel 2.6.27
I just recieved my hero today and I love it except when I get a text or call it only vibrates, even when the ringer is on full volume. I went to Settings>Ringtone> and everytime I changed my ringtone, it WOULD NOT sample the tone even when the media and ringtone volume was FULL!
Does anybody have any issues with there Evo not ringing when they are in the Facebook App or in the Wordfeud game. Every time I am in either of the above apps, my phone does not ring. Is this common. I just had Sprint walk me though a complete reboot of my phone and it still does not ring when in the mentioned apps. When I go to espn.com and surf there website, my phone will get "kicked" out of the website and start ringing.
