LG Cosmos - Any way for the alarm to increase in volume?
Gary3G

I am usually a light sleeper, but need the alarm volume to get louder if i do not turn it off.  My partner hopes there is a solution for this LG Cosmos phone.  Is there any such app, or is it too much a part of the operating system?  Thanks in advance.  GaryG

In this first link I have a few suggestions for programs that will adjust the volume.

And in the second link I have suggestions for how to use one of the programs (MP3Gain) to raise or lower the volume.

Note: To implement these suggestions, you'll need your own custom ringtones and you'll need to know how to install your custom ringtones onto the LG Cosmos. I don't think there's any way to adjust the volume level of ringtones that are pre-installed on Verizon non-smartphones.

I guess I would have to find a custom ringtone that starts out soft and gets louder to make this work.  Good idea though.  Thanks.

"I guess I would have to find a custom ringtone that starts out soft and gets louder to make this work."

No, you wouldn't.

When you use these programs to make a ringtone louder, then on the phone's lowest volume level the entire ringtone is going to be louder than it was before at that volume level and on the phone's loudest volume level the entire ringtone is going to be louder than it was before at that volume level.

When you use these programs to make a ringtone softer, then on the phone's lowest volume level the entire ringtone is going to be softer than it was before at that volume level and on the phone's loudest volume level the entire ringtone is going to be louder than it was before at that volume level.

Upon trying these suggestions on any of your mp3 ringtones, you'll understand right away the effect on the volume level. I find MP3Gain the easiest to work with, and I have information in my previous post on using it. And after installing it, the program itself has a great self-help section.

Comment #4 at this link has advice about transferring ringtones to your Cosmos VN250:

And if you need a driver for your phone, there are drivers for "LG handsets" here:

Since my goal is to have the alarm start out soft and get louder to wake me up if i am not awake yet, and not wake up my partner, i don't this this addresses my criteria, but thanks.
