    Questions and Answers

    I have a Samsung Galaxy 3 SM-9005 and the volume keeps defaulting to zero.

    I go to settings/ device /sound and I reset the ringtone volume to maximum. It seems to work OK for a day or so, then I discover it's back to zero again. I'm not sure what I am doing that makes it default = apparently randomly. Thanks

    Most likely you have set a program like Prayer (for Muslims) or set a meeting where you set the ringer to be off. Check out those two possibilities.

    How can I silent my alarms along with the volume of everything else?

    When I go to turn off the volume and mute it even following the steps in this article it works for calls and such, but I was under the impression it would silence all sounds...I still have the sound of my alarms going can I silence all alarms as well as in my religion we use our own app in services and so we utilize our phones and tablets and such and I need to know really how to turn those off. The article explains how to mute the phone, however, this doesn't seem to mute alarms...that's what I need to know how to do, as I thought muting a phone muted everything.
