How Can I Make My Cell Phone Ring Louder?

Cells phones come with a variety of ring tones and many more that can be downloaded. Even with the distinguishing tones, it is easy to miss a call if your phone is buried at the bottom of your purse. There are volume adjustments located right on every phone unit. Depending on where these are located, inadvertently turning the volume down can easily lead to frustration. There are also other ring tone settings you can download to increase the volume of your cell phone ring.

Step

Turn your phone on. When your phone is in power-saving mode, it will not respond to volume setting adjustments. Phones with numeric locks should be unlocked prior to adjusting the volume.

Step

Locate the volume control buttons. On most phone models, this is located on the upper left side of the phone.

Step

Press the "up" button. It may be indicated with an arrow. You will know you have the right button if a series of bars pops up on the screen. Press the button until you have increased the volume to your desired level. Have a friend call you to check the volume status.

Step

Customize each personalized ring tone by going into your "settings" section on the phone controls. This is found on the home screen. Select the individual ring tone, which should also have its own ring volume control. Adjust the volume up. Most phones will give you a sample of the tone and volume when adjusting in the settings section. Save settings and return to your main phone menu.
