    MODS: PLEASE DON'T SLAM ME FOR POSTING THIS ON MULTIPLE THREADS - IMPORTANT INFORMATION THAT ALL SHOULD SEE

    With all the leaked and official versions of 10.3.X - there has been the problem of low volume on notifications. There is a workaround:

    Credit for this goes to jaydee5799 - she turned me on to it!

    1) Download a FREE program called Audacity to your PC.
    2) Copy the sound file(s) you want to use on your device from your device onto your PC - then, import it (them) into Audacity.
    3) You can then manipulate the file to make the maximum volume higher.
    4) Save the modified file under a different file name (like, add MODIFIED into the file name, etc.) on your PC
    5) Copy the modified file from your PC into your device, in whatever location the original sound file was located (or in whatever location any third party ringtones you are using and modifying are located).

    You can now select the modified file on your device for notifications, just as you selected the original sound file.

    If the modified file is too loud (distorts when playing on your device) - simply delete it from your device, start over in Audacity with the original file, and modify it differently.

    Once I had installed Audacity and figured out how to use it - took me about 10 minutes to modify 7 different notification files.

    Thanks for the workaround and I appreciate your efforts. With that being said, this is insane. To have to do this is ridiculous. Sorry, it had to be said.

    I agree - but at least it solves the problem for people.

    I used my own notifications, they were all created loud.

    But still, a workaround is a workaround. It is not called a workaround for nothing.

    I really won't know if RIM will release a fix for this in future. But until then, a workaround is better than nothing.

    Bla1ze thanks for this but for whatever reason my Passport will never work with mega. I get a truncated mega icon on the top and a blank screen. Any ideas anyone please?

    Hi fistmaster I would do security wipe or reload OS, because when I'm on PassportSQW100-1/10.3.1.2243 my volume are loud but I do install by autoloader
    Do a back up then perform security wipe hope it fix the issue

    Did all that but the Mega app will not allow activation. What a pile of junk. Sorry deleted. Will do it the longer way.

    Thanks for the info though

    Yep.

    Blackberry need to bring out a 'maintenance release' patch and FAST. This is a huge embarrassment.
