How Do I Get My Samsung Phone to Ring Louder?

Samsung phones typically have a quieter ring tone than most other cell phones. Fortunately, phones produced by Samsung can be configured to increase the ring volume by using a “secret code.” The code is entered into the phone's input box as if you were making a call. A configuration menu will then appear. This menu will allow you to increase the audio volume for the earpiece as well as the phone's speakers. Increasing the volume of the phone's speakers increases the volume of the ring.

Step

Enter the following string on the phone's keypad:

Step

Press the green “Call” or “Send” button. The Configuration Menu will appear.

Step

Tap option “8” to select "Audio Configuration."

Step

Step

Tap option “3” to select "Call Configuration."

Step

Tap option “3” to select "Speaker Codec Gain."

Step

Tap option “4” corresponding to the “cod_rx” selection.

Step

Enter the number “4” or greater to increase the default audio volume of the phone.

Step

Press the “End Call” key.

Step

Reboot the phone by turning it off and removing, then re-inserting, the battery. Turn the phone back on. The default audio volume should now be louder.
