    Another method that we can use; (tap the screen to go out of there), is to go down to the apps icon which is down here on the bottom right
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  4. 4
    You can also swipe down from the notifications panel
    .
    Tap on apps, and you are going to look for settings, which is a gear-shaped icon right here. Tap on this gear shaped icon.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  5. 5
    It's going to pop settings up, and right here at the very beginning from settings, quick settings, you'll have sound
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  6. 6
    Simply tap on sound
    .
    And now we have the sound mode, volume mode, ringtones, vibrations, vibrate when ringing, dialing keypad tone, touch sounds, screen lock sounds, sound when tapped, call, messages, email, S Planner, and then advanced: music effects.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    So let's start off with sound mode, as you can see I've got some e-mail from VisiHow in sound mode
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    Tap on sound mode
    .
    You can select from sound, vibrate, and mute. We're going to leave it on sound.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    If you would select vibrate, it would put it on vibrate
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    If you would select mute, it would put it on mute
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    So now I'm going to tap on sound mode, and then tap on sound to be back to it
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    Next, we have the volume option
    .
    For volume, you simply tap volume.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    And it gives you the same screen that we have earlier, for our different sounds across the system
    .
    I'm going to go ahead and select cancel.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    If you would like, you could tap volume
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    You can adjust ringtone, the sound changes as I go down and up, when I go down all the way it changes to vibrate
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    When I put the ringtone on vibrate, it also changes the notifications, and system sounds to vibrate
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    However, if I put notifications down, all the way down, it does not change the ringtone
    .
    The same for system sounds. So vibration is a master control. Music, video, games, and other media are affected differently than your ringtone. Just tap OK.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    Next, we have vibrations
    .
    I can choose how I want my vibrations. Basic call vibration, a heartbeat vibration, then a jingle bell vibration, then we have a ticktock vibration, waltz, and zig-zig-zig. Basic call works for me, so that's what I'm going to keep.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    If you like, you can actually create a vibration
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    So tap, tap, tap, etc, and then press create pattern
    .
    Press stop.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    Now I press play and this is my vibration pattern
    .
    I'm not going to save this because, I'm not terribly interested in creating a pattern.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  22. 22
    Tap the back button to go back
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  23. 23
    Now, we'll do vibrate when ringing
    .
    Do I want the phone vibrating when ringing? Usually, yes, I do. It does use a little more battery, but not much. Dialing keypad tone, do I want the phone to beep when I'm dialing keypads? It's either a no or yes. I like it to make little beeps when I'm pressing keypad buttons, it let's me know that I'm actually pressing the buttons. Sometimes, I might not get some feedback and that bothers me. Touch sounds, you play sounds when making screen selections. Again, like dialing the keypad, I like that, because again, it might be noisy outside, you may not know that you've done something.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  24. 24
    Screen lock sound, so you can have a sound when locking the screen or unlocking the screen
    .
    This is good for two reasons. One, if you have a simple lock pattern, and you actually unlock your phone in your pocket, it is going to make some noise which can prevent you from accidentally calling your boss, or your significant other when maybe you didn't want to call them.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  25. 25
    Next, sound when tapped
    .
    This gives you the option to select whether or not there is a do-do sound.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  26. 26
    Now we have Samsung applications
    .
    The call application.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  27. 27
    We can choose to personalize our ringtones, and keypad tones, our sound, and our vibrate
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  28. 28
    I'm going to go ahead and have my call alerts vibrate
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  29. 29
    Just tap call to go back
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  30. 30
    And the same thing for messages
    .
    You can repeat a message alert.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  31. 31
    I like to repeat a message alert, let's say, every 10 minutes
    .
    This is good for me.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  32. 32
    Vibrate is nice
    .
    Notifications sound, I really dislike this little whistle that I have, but probably the rest of them are not that great either.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  33. 33
    We have a canary, I have children, that's fantastic, I'll have a canary in my pocket
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  34. 34
    And there we go , I have a canary in my pocket when I get messages
    .
    You can go back, you can do the same thing, just tap call, and you can change the tones here.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  35. 35
    Whether you want them, how you want them, what type of ringtone that you are going to have, for which phone line, so if I go to SIM 2, over the horizon, is my current ringtone
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  36. 36
    Here is Peaceful Strum
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  37. 37
    For me, personally, that's extremely irritating
    .
    When someone gets a phone call and I have to listen to an entire song. Are you going to answer your phone? And they say, oh, I love this part of the song. Well, that's great, you have a music feature on your phone. Your phone should be ringing. Maybe I'm a little old fashioned, probably I'm a little old-fashioned, but, I'm not going to subject you to listening to me cycle through the tones until I find one that actually sounds like a phone to me. Or a canary, I did kind of like that. So let's go back from ringtones.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  38. 38
    Back again from ringtones and keypad tones
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  39. 39
    You can also personalize call sounds
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  40. 40
    In call sound equalizer, and adapt the sound, you can pick a sound that works for you
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  41. 41
    So you can set this up, and you can choose what works for you and how you like it
    .
    However, this is another video.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  42. 42
    We'll get back to that later
    .
    In call sound EQ, the same situation, you can choose how you want it to be. So soft sound, clear, adaptable sound.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  43. 43
    Again, these two things, we'll touch base on those in another video
    .
    So back to call.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  44. 44
    The same thing applies to e-mail
    .
    You can choose your e-mail settings. Now, at the moment, Samsung is telling me I have no e-mail set up. I'm not going to set that up, so I'll hit cancel.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  45. 45
    The same thing for S-Planner, I have S-Planner, but I'm not actually using it at the moment
    .
    Once I set that up, we'll do a tutorial on that as well.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  46. 46
    For now, you can choose the alert type, pop-up, status bar notifications, is it going to make noise, or is it not going to make noise
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  47. 47
    These are all things that are generally going to be specific to you
    .
    Music effects is our last one. So, the music for the phone, you have two options, you have SoundAlive, and MusicFX.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  48. 48
    These are the control panels where you adjust your music
    .
    We'll come back to that as well in a future video where we'll be discussing that topic, OK? So that is how you adjust the sound, obviously the volume button is over here.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  49. 49
    We'll show you some more information on volume and volume settings in later videos for the more advanced features
    .
    Thank you for watching VisiHow, and have a great day and we'll look forward to seeing you again in a future video.
