    I love my T610 however, i more than once i missed calls becaue i simply
    could not hear the ringtone... is this a fault with my particular phone or
    is it just the quality??

    The other thing is the software is so disappointing, nokia bundles software
    that allows you to do basically EVERYTHING with your phone, you can backup
    SMS messages, MMS, profiles, etc....however, with SE all you get is the
    inadequate XTend software..it would be absolutely great if SE produced
    similar software to Nokia's..

    Thirdly and finally, isn't the whole purpose of JAVA is to be platform
    independant and aren't all java programs supposed to work on all devices
    running the java virtual machine?? i believe this is true, then, why can't
    my phone run applications created for nokia phones and vice versa??

    I have a t610 as well. I find the more complex ringtones harder to =
    hear then the simple "ring ring" I used on my old Nokia 3360. Also, the =

    Float's Mobile Agent and bluetooth is -the- way to go for connection to
    your phone.

    As for the ringtone I use the old phone because its easy to hear and
    I've also changed the ring volume of the normal (default) profile to the
    highest setting.

    It seems that Sony/Ericsson are afraid to make phones that ring loud. The
    monophonic ringers are louder, and different MIDI instruments/frequencies
    will be easier to hear than others.

    You can download more stuff from sonyericsson.com. It's NOT under the "fun
    and downloads section" (not on the US page anyway). Find your phone, go to
    the support tab, enter your local info, and then find "global support."

    Take that up with the game developers and Nokia. They use special Nokia
    extensions in their games, damming the portability of Java.

    go to profiles, by going to menu choose the icon in the bottom right
    corner and then profiles, it should be in there for turning off the
    gradual increase in volume and put it straight to full volume .

    its a matter of perspective

    Actually, I prefer that the phone is not too loud, and I have it set to increasing volume. I switch to mute when I am at work because I am in a hospital, and then back on for the weekends.

    When you miss a call, you just have to trust that somebody who wants to talk to you will call again...

    Are we not getting confused with the standard ring/increasing tone "safety
    feature" here?

    Which naturally can't be turned off.

    Try a different ringtone, like Halloween or Theme to Excorcist. Most phones
    that have polyphonic ringtones are lower in volume than the older mono
    tones.

    back in profile choose increasing ring and turn it off.

    The OP may well agree with you but might be is changing his profile to
    Outdoors where many people want a loud ringtone - it's *their* choice
    (or rather should be). The T610 is too low in ring volume & has an
    increasing ring which can't be turned off (over & above the Increase
    ring option). This is a safety feature to stop SE getting sued for
    damaging hearing - many phones have a separate speaker which would face
    away from the ear, so wouldn't matter if it went off loudly. Cordless
    landline phone manufactures were encouraged to sort this 15yrs ago & did
    so. Sometimes small phones are lacking worthwhile features.

    > When you miss a call, you just have to trust that somebody who wants
    > to talk to you will call again...


    And if the OP is a doctor on call, on standby duty, a taxi driver, a
    Salesman or has a randy ex-girlfriend desperately trying to call him?
    No, he doesn't have to suppose someone will call again.
