    When I manually dial a number, is there any way I can turn the volume of the dialer down? Everybody in a five block radius can hear it.

    Thanks in advance......

    look around, you can do what I did and make the keys viberate instead of the loud tone. It's a hapic feedback for the keys, that way you know you hit the key with the vibration feedback but don't get the megaphone niose!!

    There's the link....found it! Hope it helps

    The simple solution is flipping the ringer switch off before you dial.

    It would be nice to be able to select loud alert sounds without alerting everyone when you are dialing. This is one thing that I hope gets changed in an update. This and the notifications coming thru the earpiece while in a call. Didn't anyone at Palm use this thing?

    Did you know the sonic boom dial pad goes through the speaker even if you're wearing the included headphones? I was calling the bank and entering my 400 digit account number thinking I was the only one hearing the pad and this guy told me to "shut the ++++ up and stop playing with your phone".

    C'mon palm. I can look like a moron without your help so if the headphones are in then mute the damn dialpad.

    Am I missing something....is the System Sounds (in the Sounds and Ringtones pref panel) volume slider not working for you?

    There is a separate volume control for System sounds and the Phone ringer. The side buttons control the RINGER volume. For me the System Sounds slider controls my phone's key presses.

    hope this helps.

    Yes, but if you do that then ALL the system sounds get quiet, including the notifications. I need to hear the notification beep for texts and emails, but I don't need my entire office knowing I'm making a call.

    I woulda told him to blow me. But yeah I noticed that the other day I was walking my dogs and it scared them but I didn't hear it since I had my headphones on.

    I hate that it's so loud. FIX IT PALM.

    Unfortunately system sounds STILL controls the alarm volume too. As many have stated before, alarm volume should be linked to ringer volume, like all my other phones...

    False.

    My phone is on vibrate 90% of the time, i'd much more hate being woken up from someone calling me cause i have to keep my ringer volume high.

    I guess you meant to say you disagree, since nothing in my post is false. That includes the fact that the alarm is controlled by system sounds, and of course my personal opinion.

    I don't follow the rest of your post either. If your phone is on vibrate, it doesn't ring when someone calls you, but the alarm still does.
