I created a ringtone that has an abrupt start, but when the phone rings, it slowly fades in. I'd like the ringtone to come in a full volume right from the first nanosecond. Is this an option I can change?
This is an issue I've had a problem with as well. With my "hearing issues," it takes it getting to full volume before I even know the phone is ringing. I get the indicator from my Bluetooth headset nearly 4 seconds before I can hear my "loud" ringtone, so I wear my headset so I can answer calls more promptly.
Only a minor irritation, though, because the last thing I would want is a suddenly loud ring if I were at a restaurant, library, or church.
On what device? Certainly not possible on a Lumia 520. Windows 8 and 8.1 requires you to put ringtones in a "ringtone" directory. If you're on Developer Preview, perhaps there was some other setting to get around it, but not on the stock OS.
