You can read it there but, in short, you go into Profiles/Advanced, highlight the Profile, hit menu and Show Tunes. Highlight the tune you're using for the ringer and play it. While it's playing hit the volume keys on the RHS, bumping up the slider located in the LRH corner of the screen. Shot my MP3 ringer all the way up so that it's almost TOO loud.
Again, apologize if this is common knowledge but didn't see this in the thread. It's just that the 8830 is SO nice but has the low volume as one of its few faults.
it got very loud when turning it up, but i then called the phone and it was not as loud as playing it in the media player.
