    Does anyone know how to change or [hopefully] increase the volume on
    the Samsung A500 notification ringer? It's too soft to be heard, and
    I'm hoping to use it to alert me of an appointment (via Yahoo
    Calendar).

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    It uses the same volume as all other rings.

    You can set different volume levels for calls, messages, alarms; and
    different ring types for calls, messages, schedule.

    Menu + 0 + 2 will get you there.

    There is a bug with the A500 that makes the notification ringer lower
    than all the other ringers. It's the same way with the A600. Though I
    have found out that when I receive a one-way text message the ringer on
    my A600 is just as loud as the other ringers, but if someone sends me a
    short mail, then notification that tells me that I have short mail is
    the too soft to hear bug.

    Actually the short mail ringer notification volume is much lower than it
    should be even when set to the max. level. It's a software bug that
    wasn't fixed with WD29. All the other types of ringer volumes work the
    way they should.

    I'll check out my demo phones tomorrow, and if it gives me the same
    results, I'll report it to the QA department.

    Thanks many A500 users have been complaining about that for a long time.

    It needs to be fixed on the A600 as well.

    I haven't noticed this. All ringers have the same volume on my phone,
    whether it is for notification, voicemail, caller-id call, or unidentified
    call. They all use the same volume. If I lower the ringer volume, they all
    go down. Perhaps some ringers themselves are quieter than others. That is
    not a fault of the software, but a fault of the ringer.

    Hmm, that is correct. It seems that turning the main volume down will lower
    the rest though ... at least when you put the phone in vibrate mode.

    Nevermind. There is a separate volume setting for three different ringer
    types.

    Definetly a software problem. This has been reported by many other A500
    users on various forums. It has nothing to do with the ringer type used.
    It only affects the short mail ringer not the text messaging ringer. My
    GF also has the A500 and I just tested it and same thing. Much lower
    than it should be. Do a search on sprintusers.com and you will see the
    discussions about this problem.
