However, when this person calls the downloaded ringtone plays so load that it sounds like it is literally going to damage the speaker(s) in my Blackberry. Other than changing the profile settings (Loud, Vibrate, Quite, Normal, and Phone Only?) I don't know any way to adjust the volume specifically for individual ringtones. Even when scrolling through the various ringtone options, this tune plays louder than any other ringtone in the list. The ringtone was actually downloaded from a link on my carrier's website (AT&T) and not some questionable third rate source so I would have thought that the ringtone would have worked on my phone. Could someone please advise me on what to do about this. This is the first ringtone I have ever downloaded and at $2.50 I hate to waist money on something that isn't even usable. It's not "a little loud", it's "MAY DAMAGE MY PHONE LOUD!"

I use a program called Goldwave. You can change the volume and save it. Goldwave allows you to change many things including recording your own tones, changing formats stc. I purchased it many years ago. I believe you can try before you buy it. You may find similar free programs. Check it out and go from there.
