Control ringtone and media volume separately
Vocie from Chinese users. These TOP feedbacks are got from a very popular Chinese Windows Phone forum.
1. Separate volumer controls for apps/ringtones
2. Orientation lock: seems to the screen orientation lock in Surface
3. Full-Level Brightness: from 1% to 100%, same to Surface
4. Wubi language input: Wubi is a familiar language input in China. Many users have problems in using Pinyin
5. Notification Center: A location to see all notifications
6. Enable Alarm when phone is power off: many users power off the phone while sleeping, but they still want the phone to have a morning call.
7. Don't power on phone when charged: Users would like to charge the phone when they are sleeping, but don't want the phone to be power on.
8. Code Show: The ability to show where the call is from. In China, a phone number belongs to a city only. When there is incoming call, and the caller is unknow contact, users are willing to know which city the incoming call belongs to. They then can decide to answer or ignore the call.
9. BlackList/Block Callers: When users block a number, all calls from the number will be blocked. Same to "Block Sender" in outlook.
10. Call history: Call duration, another view to see the history that is not grouped by people and is sorted by datetime
11. Short cuts to turn off/on WIFI, bluetooch, Cellular data from a area such as Charm Bar in Windows 8
This is a very basic setting that has been available in mobiles since the start of the millennia! The ringtone should remain fixed to a volume level and the media volume should be able to be changed with the side buttons.
Because all of us wants a stable ringer volume and for media we change a lot of time.
The OS system settings needs to have a category to set an independent volume level for things like ring, alarm, music, and so on.
For example, I like my phone ring either quite loud or on silent but i need my alarm volume to be quite low (i wake up in a blind panic every morning as the volume is always left too high). My old android phone could do this and its really quite annoying WP7 can't.
lots of ppl are missing calls because of it. (the low volume stays low after headphones removed)
need ringtone volume separately from music and alarm volumes
Present limitation is that you need high phone volume while sleeping. the alarm volume should be full with ringer volume off and vibrate on
Different volume controls with and without headsets plugged-in, without the need of having to manually turning up and down the volume when headset is disconnected.
I think they should have different control. Everytime I need change the sound volume before I play games
Multiple volume controls for ringtones and incoming sms/email/etc tones. Also would be appreciated a graphic equalizer with some default presets + custom set
I'd like to see separate audio profiles for media volume versus ringer volume.
Please change this, I can't change my volume every time I want to make a call or listen to music. This is stupid to have this and no other options. At least create a button that says something like all items, one volume, or separate volumes.
I agree fix it

And now comment's summary - quotations:
Missing many calls daily, **** with this lumia and Microsoft. This is why you lost market. Deplorable MicroSoft! How many calls i'm missing daily. Microsoft Pls FIX this ASAP!! Otherwise we move to the other platform!! Seriously....? We really need to request for this feature? Requested since 2011! Guys it's nearly 2014....This is a basic MUST have feature for any phones. I have missed many calls. Incredible! I Think all other systems can do this! Feeling bad ....i never preffer microsoft again. It's ridiculous that there aren't separate volume controls for ringtone, messages and alarms. Please fix this asap! It is actually very basic feature. This is actually the first time I've ever seen it NOT be in an OS from the beginning. NEED to be able to control alarm volume, already lost one job due to alarm being too quiet... I thank God that I still have a smartphone with Symbian. This is really unacceptable. It's ridiculus... A very basic functionality... How could it possible that you didn't think to this issue. They are so bloody insensible that they cant even give this basic feature i want my money back from Nokia. Words cannot describe how much of a fail this is. This is absolutely necessary indeed. Isn't possible that a OS like the Windows Phone 8 will not able to do this. A very basic feature, cellular phones had, even before the arrival of "Smartphones". Also present in Windows Mobile 6.5.x. What happened? It drives me crazy... and I'll go for Android if Microsoft doesn't provide a solution. Microsoft is not hearing our suggestions.
A Nokia phone used to have the volume distinct from one application to the next, and not common with the alamrs/ringtones/alert either.
But it should also keep the Mute fonction that shut down all sounds, regardless of the origins. That was really useful for meetings or calm places (library, child keeping...)
This is absolutely necessary indeed. The fact that I need to lower the volume of a loud music I'm listening to does not mean that I want to lower my ringtone volume.
Ringtone and media volume are completely unrelated and one should one influence the other.
Вы хоть бы дату сказали!
Please Microsoft. Listen to your users. Maybe it's a good suggestion if 75k + users vote for it ;-)
Always that i need use keyboard,
when i'm at the job, i have to down the volume.
Almost always when i finish to use the keyboard,
i forget to up the volume,
staying with the ringtone volume low.
Some times i can not listen the calls.
The older OS's, without many resources, were able to do this.
Isn't possible that a OS like the Windows Phone 8,
will not able to do this.
жованый крот! да когда же вы, пилять, раздуплитесь?? что должно в лесу здохнуть что бы мелософт признал свой очередной фэйл (наряду с конченным тач-интерфейсом в вин8) , перестала выёживаться и сделала на своих говнофонах функцию, которая есть в любом дешевом телефоне??????????

in the list of all the ideas, I think this is the most important. I have missed so many calls because the media volume and the ringtone volume are linked. It would be nice if we had a little more control to choose which one we will adjust.

Anche io ho già perso molte telefonate! É da più di due anni che é stata fatta la segnalazione! Invece di continuare a sviluppate cavolate sui social network implementate questa.
Y are they not bringing this feature after receiving these much suggestions, what the **** are they going to loose.
Missing many calls daily,, **** with this lumia and Microsoft. With all these drawbacks I don't know how windows phone is growing.

The volume-up and volume-down buttons should only work for the media player.
The volume for ringtones, message tones and the alike, alarmclock tone, etc etc should be a fixed setting.
An icon on the startpage should provide a quick access to the volume control of these sounds.
Please fix this because we (37 users) will have to get rid of our Lumia phones. We are missing too much calls because we accidentally push the volume-down button and that makes the ringtone (and other tones) almost be unnoticible.
Please separate the ringtone volume. It drives me crazy... and I'll go for Android if Microsoft doesn't provide a solution.
