Adjust volume
Volumes you can control

Your phone has independent settings for these volumes:

  • Call
  • Media (music, video, games)
  • Alarm
  • Ringtone for incoming calls and notifications

Adjusting one volume won't affect the others, so you can crank up the tunes without making incoming callers sound like they’re shouting.

Turn volume up or down

When you're on a call, press the Volume buttons to adjust the volume level of the other person on the call.
When you're not on a call, press the Volume buttons to adjust the media volume.

To adjust other volumes at any time:

  1. Press a Volume button.
    Touch Image.
  2. Slide the volume levels where you want them:
