    We have just purchased a new 6230i for use at my work.
    Alerts from our monitoring system are sent as SMS to this particular phone.
    It is therefore important that these alerts are heard.

    When browsing for the SMS tones in the "Tones" menu (?), the volume is as
    desired. But when a "real" SMS is received, the sound played is less than
    half in volume.

    Everything I can find is turned up, but the SMS sound is still somewhat
    quiet.

    How can I turn up the SMS volume to it's fullest?

    NB
    Software is 3.80.

    Make sure the volume control (on left side of phone) is turned up fully.
    Volume turned up fully in the active profile?

    Depends on what your idea of louder is.

    I find my 6230 SMS is too loud (fwiw, I made my own ringtones and they are
    loud!). Now that the damn wappush.net SMS spammers are beginning to run
    loose with their cell phone spam text ads, I would like to turn the SMS
    volume off - if not shut off the entire SMS and text messaging feature
    altogether. The notion of paying for cell phone spam annoys me.

    Be careful of what you wish for.

    B~

    Well, if they just were as loud as in the "prelisten" menu, it'd be nice.

    So far, it's not a problem here in Denmark... yet.

    Thank goodness we don't pay to receive anything in Australia. I sure as hell
    hope they keep it that way. I'm currently holidaying in Canada, and I'm
    annoyed as hell that I have to pay when someone wants to talk to me.

    -Craig.
