    Photo Contacts Pro & Phone Alarm - Text Alerts???

    Hi
    Can anyone help me? I have a AT&T Moto Q Global and have Photo Contacts Pro I have selected the profile "Vibrate and Play Sound" for SMS it will just play the sound also the sound is not as loud as it is without Photo Contacts Pro.
    Same problem with Phone Alarm expect it reboots the q on it own.
    Any sugestions?
    If they only would have gave the option of stopping a text alert sound I would be fine.
    Thanks
    Gary

    I have both photo contacts pro and phone alarm. I disabled the profiles on Photo Contacts Pro. Then I just use PhoneAlarm for profiles. my "loud" profile is set for SMS sound (alarm1.mid) and the box for vibrate is checked.

    works great

    Thanks! But I can not get it to work on my AT&T Q Global. Phone Alarm keeps turning the phone off. I am just going to have to wait until someone comes up with a hack or program to stop the text alert when it starts, shorter alerts are not an option for me. Will have to stay with the V3xx for now

    I have PCP and am always singing it's praises so it would be wrong of me not to answer. So just to clarify, when you set the "Vibrate and Play Sound" in PCP it only plays the sound and doesn't vibrate, is that correct?

    And the loudness question can you explain that a bit better to me!

    Thanks

    I have a At&t Q Global and when I set PCP to " Vibrate and Sound" it will only play the sms alert and does not vibrate.

    As for the loudness if I uses the Q global profiles insteated of the PCP profiles the Q profiles are much louder.

    I have emailed PocketX and thier latest reply is they are looking ino it

    Thanks for any help as I can not use the Q until I find a way to stop text alerts after the start

    This might sound dumb if you already did this in which case please disregard, but did you go through the profile settings in pcp? I've noticed this program takes over pretty much everything on the phone.

    Well I've just tried both and they work for me. Vibrate + Tone does just that and I can't notice any difference in the volume level when using PCP or the default profiles.

    I wonder if there is a conflict somewhere? PocketX have always responded quickly to my questions and suggestions so I hope you get some answers soon.

    Just a suggestion on the loudness issue, but can you manually edit the files and make the volume louder. I mean open the mp3 in say audacity and amplify he actual ringtone volume there?

    I used to have to do that on my Blackjack

    I recieved Photo Contacts Pro 5.05 Beta from PocketX, they have fix the "vibrate & sound" issue on the Moto Q Global. There is still an issue with the volume no matter what setting you chose the volume remaind the same low, i am waiting from a reply on that.

    Phone Alram SP Built 82 still turns the phone on & off, you must use it dashboard as it does not sync with the other profiles on the Moto Q Global. You can get the volume to loud by going to user confi and removing the ' before "WM 6.0 sound API" seem that there is aproblem with the default WM 6.0 sound API

    Has anyone found any other way to stop texts alert after they have started.

    Thanks to Mexiken here is the fix for the volume issue

    Apparently the engine in this app uses the ring preview driver of the phone, so you need to modify that. Look here for it:

    HK_C_U\ControlPanel\SoundCategories\RingPreview

    Change the InitVol to 5 for max volume, 1 for lowest. I have it at 5 and can't be happier =)

    Restart phone. Done and done.

    Enjoy !!!!
