Why it's not possible to adjust the ringer volume at the lock screen? Even though it's possible to adjust the volume during music playback and responses from Siri, etc.Â
There are a number of times during the day that I just want to be able to quickly pick-up the phone and adjust the ringer volume. If there was a profile app available in the app store that allowed me to automatically set different volume levels at different times of the day it would be great - particularly if the app didn't require me to jailbreak the phone.Â
What is the reasoning behind it? I heard someone suggest once that it's intended to protect against the volume buttons being accidentally pressed if the phone is inside an enclosed space, i.e. handbag or pocket, but I've never personally experienced this when jogging with the phone in my pocket while listening to music on my headphones. And if it's for security reasons, then why is anyone able to switch my phone into silent mode?Â
I changed my lock screen to finger print this morning. Typically I just have it set to swipe, but wanted it on for the day, I do that periodically. This evening I went to change it back and the option for swipe and no lock arent available. They say, " turned off by administrator, encryption policy or credential storage." I tried looking through these areas and didn't find anything. I didn't change any of those settings or install any apps that may have changed it (Android pay is deactivated).
I can't hear any alerts and the volume doesn't adjust when I push the side buttons. I do not have the sounds locked and I have the feature on to allow adjusting the volume with the buttons. When I push the side buttons the ringer icon comes up but the volume wont adjust.
How do I adjust the volume for the phone recever on the IPhone 4? All the sounds work fine except for the receiver. I can hear a phone call or voicemail with the ear buds and remote mic, but not through the receiver.
My iPhone 4 has developed a weird quirk. Last night is seemingly turned it's volume down on it's own. Now I am unable to manually adjust the volume. I have tried all the tricks: reset phone; restored phone; mute switch is in the "off" position; and under the Sounds settings "change with buttons" is "on"! To make things even more strange; when I received a phone call earlier I could hear my ringtone; but, no other tones are audible (messages, etc).
All of a sudden I have a problem with the volume on my phone. I know it isn't a problem with the speakers as all my videos play normally with sounds, and when I try to change the ringtone, it plays. However, I cannot adjust the volume using the volume buttons on the side, and the silence switch doesn't work...when I press any of them, there is no on screen confirmation of a change. The ohphone also doesn't play any noise when I have an incoming call or text. But I like I said, I can play videos with sound, I can go to settings and sound and hear the ringtones. I have reset, and restored the phone but nothing has made any difference.
My iphone 5s tells me that my settings need to be changed in order to watch video playback if I'm not on Wifi. I go into settings and everything looks right but it still will not allow me to watch video playback through cellular connection.Â What do i need to do?
I switched from Samsung. There is a function with Samsung customized version of Android that when I play video full screen and hit on/off button, the screen is locked but video keeps playing. That is a really useful function.
We have 3 Ray phones in our family. I have upgraded my to ICS, but the other two still have the original android OS - GB. Problems that we experience on all three phones are as follows; If I look at the video file and turn the phone 90 degrees (it does not matter if I turn it left or right), then screen lock lock the screen immediately. I can not unlock the phone as long as the phone is in the same position. I have to turn it back 90 degrees for it to go to unlock it. The same happens even if I want to play games and have to turn my phone 90 degrees, or if I want to photograph or record a film. If I do not turn my phone 90 degrees, then everything works as it should, but it is supposed to be able to rotate the phone, depending on what you do without screen lock locks my phone immediately?
I cannot seem to find a setting to adjust the volume of the tone that the alarm clock makes. The alarm volume is very soft and not loud at all. It doesn't wake me up.Could someone please show me how to adjust the volume of the alarm clock? Please?
Why is it that the alarm volume does not change if you change the phone volume setting on the 1-30 scale. The alarm volume level is insanely loud, and s always the same whether you phone volume setting is on 1 or 30.
It would be very nice if the volume of the alarm could be changed as well as currently it scares the s..t out of me every morning when it goes off.
There are + and - buttons on the right side of Nokia X2-02 which you can use for adjusting the volume. Using these buttons you can adjust every application, accept the alarm clock. There isn't also an extra option in the advanced menu of Alarm clock for volume adjusting. While ringing the alarm cannot be adjust using the + and - buttons because when you press them, the alarm just snoozes. The + and - buttons while you are in the alarm menu don't adjust the volume too. But when you set the radio as alarm clock then it works - the volume is so loud as the phone ringing settings. There is also no extra option in the Settings menu for the alarm clock.
I am using on of the song I have downloaded onto my phone as an alarm clock tone. The volume on the device is set to a minimum yet the alarm volume is extremely high - too high to be waking up to. How do I adjust the alarm clock volume.
I bought two X8 and they are facing the same problem. The in call volume is low. I have to pressed the side key to higher the volume when making call. After call the volume is back to low. That mean every time a incomming or out going call I have to press the side key to higher the volume. I install volume application to adjust the volume and it work fine but when I connect and unplug the USB connecting phone to PC the in call volume become low.
I have the Motorola car dock, and when the phone is docked, the volume buttons do nothing. I want to turn up the volume on the phone becuase even when I trun my radio up all the way, the volume is still not loud enough.
If I undock the phone and just use the headphone jack, I can turn the volume up and down on the phone.
So for some reason, the dock disables the use of the buttons.
When I switched to the HTC One from the iPhone it was annoying that I no longer has a simply sound/vibrate switch anymore. It ended up not being THAT big a deal though since I was able to simply adjust the volume and/or sound profile of the device by waking it up and pushing the volume buttons. However on the Nexus 5, it's been quite frustrating because the only way to adjust the volume of the device is to wake up the device, unlock it and THEN adjust the volume. Not sure why Google would force you to take 3 separate steps to simply change the volume but it doesn't make much sense. Are there any apps or other tweaks (without being forced to root) that will allow me to adjust to volume from the lock screen (or even with the screen off)?!
So I've just found that I have lost all the controls on my Samsung Galaxy S5 whilst playing videos in the video player.Normally whilst playing a video, a simple tap on the screen you can pause, seek, rewind, screenshot, and adjust brightness volume and play speed.These options are now all totally gone, like they never existed. I've killed the video player in running apps, and also restarted my device and the still the controls are not back,.
Prior to updating to Lollipop I was able to easily adjust notification volume by simply touching the volume control on side of phone, then selecting the cog next to ringtone volume. That disappeared with Lollipop update. Is there any way to adjust notification volume other than going all the way to settings?
I have the OEM Motorola Car Dock connected with the combined USB audio/power cable. Whenever I dock my Droid 4, the media volume changes to a default setting (somewhere around 90% of max if I had to guess) and cannot be changed with the volume buttons.
This is a huge problem for me as it causes distortion from my car speakers; I need the media volume to be less than ~70% to prevent this.
If I connect the phone via the 3.5mm jack instead of USB, the media volume can be adjusted normally and I can avoid the distortion...but that requires two cables instead of one and I'd have to connect/disconnect the 3.5mm cable every time I am in my car.
tl;dr Is there any way to change the media volume setting when using the USB port for audio output?
I have a Motorola Atrix 4G (US) and was wondering if it would be possible to show the lock screen from pressing up or down on the volume buttons. It worked for my previous phones and would be a great alternative for this phone.
