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.
Windows Phone 8.1 now offers separate volume controls for Ringer, Notifications as well as Media & Apps
"Windows Phone 8.1 now offers separate volume controls for Ringer, Notifications as well as Media & Apps"
Yes it does, but none of it won't effect on alarm volume. Alarm volume changes on the list when you select a tone for the alarm, but when the alarm rings it is unchanged, like it would be fixed on volume 25/30 or something and cannot be changed?!
Major issue, please fix ASAP!
Alarm volume slowly increasing please or ability to set low all the time needed. I am a light sleeper so only need to be told when it's time without waking up everybody around me.

well i have a way for all those who's asking, to seperate the ringer from the music volume, i don't know how to seperate the alarm though
okay so when playing a music, choose a track and play it then adjust your volume as you like and pause the song then play it once and pause, just to make sure your phone understood you're adjusting the music
then choose whatever song you like next it will be on the volume you adjusted
if you're willing to change it again in music then follow the same steps, other than that it will adjust the ringer only
Profiles in my old Nokia 5800 are very helpful and such thing could make our life easier, it is very important to make this update or application, and please change this "Vibrate AND Ring together" not "Vibrate then Ring" - a lot of people miss call, and what should be fixed too is the Alarm clock volume/setting (it is to quiet no vibration possibility to add - more settings options (increasing, decreasing, stable volume, vibration, level of volume - loudness) - this is needed, I must use my old nokia 5800 as alarm.
I love my Lumia, but this little things I mentioned above make me to hate it at the same time.

I have a Nokia Lumia 930 and I am very happy with Windows Phone 8.1 but I find the volume uncomfortable because panel sometimes does not expand it with carat. It would be helpful to have the "Profiles" (Menu> Settings and Personal) as it was in my Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, where I could control the volume for the day, during a business meeting, when I go in a noisy environment or during night. You meditate to an old concept as "Profiles"
Why is this marked Completed?
There is no way I can control the Alarm clock volume on my Lumia 930 with 8.1.
And, yes, it is too quiet.
How do u do that cause my media/text goes up to 30 and phone calls to only10
Steve Hayles commented
Lumia needs to have a separate volume setting for the clock alarm wth crescendo option. This is a major oversight. Due to issues with the volume down button it is difficult to set at will. Frustrating on an otherwise great phone.

Need the alarm to start off with low volume and gradually increase so that I do not strangle anyone. Please make this possible!!! Thank you.
Please add alarm volume control. It's so loud when it goes off. It's unbelievable this is not an option. Who ever missed this should be fired.
I still miss seperate volume for alarm
Please make the phone dialling with either key in name or no to search direct like android devices.
No need go to used phone book search function.
Some times it will stuck and freeze after ending call.
It shows screen black and snow noise.my devices lumia 1520 hardware revision version 220.127.116.11
Please don't hold back on the how to fix this information. I use my phone alarm to wake up. I haft to go yo work soon and hope I hear it. Thank you.
where is the volume control for incoming calls ??
Since the volumerocker can handle both media+apps and ringer+notifications I expected it to controll the Alarm aswell. It does not. The alarm is obviously set to a fixed volume. This is very annoying and should be a simple thing to fix.
prima era possibile regolare il livello di volume di chiamata in arrivo fino a 30 (30/30) ora il limite massimo è 10 (10/10) a mio avviso era molto più funzionale prima
I was excited about this being implemented, but it needs work. On a number of occasions using WP8 I had my ears blasted with super loud notification noises, having turned up the volume to listen to a quiet video/song (with headphones on), ideally this change would have fixed that problem, but it still occurs because the OS seems to treat FB Messenger notifications, WhatsApp notifications etc. as "media" as opposed to notifications. Also, we've now lost the ability to quickly silence by holding down the minus button on the volume rocker.
Windows Phone un desastre me arrepiento de tener un Lumia pobre, Nokia!
i wan't to know if it is also possible to set de alarm volume separate from the volume for ringer notifications and media and apps in windows Phone 8.1
These so called “Smartphones” are a big rip-off!!!
Companies sale more marketing propaganda than product quality … Many simple, basic, common sense features are overlooked.
