    Hey Gang,

    I'm on day two of owning my Lumia 920, and I'm lovin' it, though I find the volume control to be completely baffling. If I have my ringer set to an optimal volume, I have to turn down the volume of a call, but that in turn affects the ringer volume. If I adjust the volume of music, that blows up everything else.

    Is there a setting that I'm just not finding? Every other smartphone I've ever owned or even played with has had independent controls for everything that requires volume.

    Thanks!

    Nope - one volume for all is the philosophy for now. Sucks big time. Hopefully MS changes this in their next update.

    yeah, it's probably one of the most stupid design elements of WP8 along with the music player...

    So far this is my one complaint with this phone. It's really a pain in the butt.

    What is wrong with the music player?

    Nope. It's never changing. It has been this way since Windows Phone 7s release.

    Wait, they made it so the in call volume control is no longer independent of the ringer/overall system volume?

    No, I believe that's independent. It's just that the volume for apps, music, ringer etc is all the same. So if you want to turn down the sound in a game or a movie without separate controls, then you are turning your ringer down at the same time. Which is kind of annoying, I have to admit.

    The call volume is independent and goes from 1-10. What isn't independent is the ringer volume from the music,games,other apps volume.

    HTC has adaptive ringer volume luckily for me. So when the phone is in my pocket it automatically sets the ringer volume to high.
