Making Galaxy Express ring LOUDER

I think I heard somewhere that it is possible to jack up the volume for ringtone on incoming calls on Galaxy Express . . . but I can't find any documentation in the online manual. I already have volume level as high as it can go, but can't hear the phone ring at all . . .needs to be louder.

Have any ideas?

import my own ringtones

I created a ringtone on my midi system and imported it into my old AT&T phone - I believe maybe as MP3?

Can't find anywhere in online manual for Samsung Galaxy Express with instructions for downloading this ringtone from my computer . . . or from my simcard - also cannot find instructions on how to download to my simcard.

Seems like everything I need to know is very hard to find - not liking this manual very well.

Poor battery life

I purchased two of these phones from ATT, one for me and one for the wife. Both phones have horrible battery life. We both leave the GPS off unless needed, Wifi only if we are at home and only turn on when we need to use it.

If it was consistently poor then I could live with that. But it's not. Battery will last almost a full day sometimes, then crap out before noon the next day after a full charge. Even is usage patterns remain the same.

Downloaded the JuiceDefender app and that helped somewhat.

I'm going to try and take them back. Maybe check out the LG Optimus or the comparable new model from HTC.

4.1 can block calls?

Is that only on the G S III? Because I'm running 4.2 on my Galaxy Nexus and I have never encountered such a feature.

That's odd...

Wonder how much crap-ware they added that made it so it can't update OTA. Since the Sprint version got an OTA.

Just wow

I'm surprised they haven't added Samsung TV's to the mix. Oh wait, they only seem to be going after devices that are in direct competition with them. People can say what they want but, if Samsung wasn't their direct competitor in hardware, i doubt Apple would be doing this. At least, not on such a large scale.

What The (insert choice of explitive)!

Apple is like that chic on Maury that got drunk at a party can't remember quite what had happened and now is parading an entire line of devices, making all kinds of absurd claims, clogging up the court dockets, subjecting everyone to undue test and scrutiny just to get a check. ..

Geesh Phone Baby Mama Drama

COME ON APPLE! Is this really worth the damage this is doing to your once in foul able BRAND? Have you checked the pulse on your Net Promoter Score? There are several consumers out there that will never buy an Apple product not because of your build quality but for this court room BS..

All things for all people

Seems ATT is trying to make use of a service that has not done to well for them in the past. It will be interesting to see how these other features will make their service as good or better, than Sprint's.

"the first memory card slot supporting up to 64 GB"

>>the first memory card slot ADVERTISING supporting up to 64 GB

-fixed

I've had a 64Gb SDXC card in my GT-i9100 Galaxy S2 for over 6 months already. Every version of the S2 should support any 64Gb card as well.
