    Hi everyone! I just purchased my very first iPhone today and have one issue I can't seem solve.

    The sms tone is loud! When I turn down the volume it's perfect but then my ringtone is really low. Also when I play words with friends, the alert volume on that is super loud too, scares me when it goes off lol
    Is there a way I can just turn down the sms and alerts volume?

    Thanks!

    Ah well, I'll silence the sms tones and deal with the game notifications lol

    Thanks!

    You might try using a different tone; some of them seem louder than others. (The chime sound is really piercing for instance.)

    So far all of them seem really loud to me.

    Do you think if I created a ringtone and set its volume higher than normal, I could turn the iP volume down for the sms/alert tones but my ringtone would still be loud?

    Interesting idea, I've never tried it...but I have definitely had to remake some of my ringtones because they were too loud. So it seems like a good workaround; give it a try and let us know how it goes!

    I've been trying to make one with a higher volume but can't seem to figure it out.
    How have you made your ringtones?

    I usually use Audacity to make my audio files, but I believe you can also adjust the volume in iTunes by right-clicking and using Get Info>Options>Audio Adjustment.

    I tried right clicking the ringtone in iTunes but it grays out the volume. I can up the mp3 volume but when I change it from ACC (or AAC?) to m4r it puts the volume back to default.

    So far I haven't been able to get my specific ringtone to be louder (Golden Girls theme music ) but I'll try again later.
