Two questions...

1) What is the difference between the normal and medium volume settings?

2) All phones I have previously owned had volume settings where if you set it to loud, or to vibrate, or silent, all features followed suit (silencing your ringer silenced your alarm, for example)...however, I have problems with my phone making sounds when it's on vibrate -- the alarm will still sound, the camera will make the click sound, etc...is there any way to change settings so that everything works the same way?

1. Loudness.

2. This is by design. I put my phone on silent at night, but I need the alarm in the morning. The camera click is for legal reasons.

I understand there's a difference in loudness, but which one is louder? Is normal supposed to be the "low" setting?

No, Normal is medium and Loud is High by default.

If you wanted, you could create a new profile called Low and set all the notifications to a low tone.

Ok, so then if normal is medium and loud is high, does that mean that medium is low, or that normal and medium are the same volume?

Are you referring to the Profiles?

The Normal profile is set to medium volume by default. So in that sense they are the same.

I am talking about the pull-down menu that appears when you press the volume key on the home screen. You get a list of options: Normal, loud, medium, vibrate only, silent, phone calls only, all alerts off. I am simply confused as to how the normal, loud, and medium options compare because I am used to phones with the choices of high, medium, and low. Does that make sense?

Additional note: I am talking about the sound profiles...so I'm just not sure about the difference between the normal and medium sound profiles.
