    It's not a big deal I just find it strange that I can barely hear it

    I think it may have to do with the media volume on the phone but I haven't tested it.

    Or it could be that they learned after the R2D2 that loud boot sounds that you can't turn off are really annoying.

    Because maybe they've learned that it's pointless and annoying? :biggrin:

    Kidding aside (well, kind of kidding, but not really...I've always hated boot sounds on phones), I'm pretty sure it's tied to one of the volumes on the phone like zomnomnombie said. I can't definitively say which volume it's connected to, but I know if my phone my phone on silent before shutting it down or restarting it, there's no boot sound. My guess is it's connected to the system volume or the ringer.

    Have all all my volume sliders maxxed out, full volume, and the boot sound is low on mine too. :)

    Then maybe they did decide to lower it because it's annoying. Ha, ha.

    It's definitely tied to one of the volumes in part though, because it is muted if the phone is on silent when rebooted.

    Its low so it doesn't interrupt your meeting when it randomly reboots by itself.

    Same here... Like I said it's not a big deal just figured if it's going to be on you might as well be able to hear it

    If I knew where in the phone the boot sound file was located, I would find it, transfer it to my PC, open the file in Wave Lab, increase the volume on it, then put it back in the phone to see if it worked, just for grins and ha ha's :biggrin:

    I'm surprised it's not a customisable option...these phones are so filled with customisable things that you figure something like that would be able to be turned off or turned up

    The world around me doesn't need to be notified when I have an incoming call, text, or email. That's privileged information that only I need to know. :icon_cool:
