Anyone know how to lower the ring volume on this phone? There doesn't seem to be an option for it in the settings.

You can't use a WM device to the full without doing a bit of reading (the manual perhaps?) or researching. Remember, its a smart phone for smart people.BTW your problems were not visible LOL.
Actually its the best device for its price... ofcourse if you know how to use it ;)
I have the HTC S710 now for about a year now. It is the WORST phone I have used since swopping over from Nokia. The tragedy of it all is that I am stuck with it for I have a 2 year contract. Herewith are the endless problems I have had with this phone.
1) Very poor battery life from Brand New
2) Phone freezes often even in the wake of software upgrades
3) Pathetic MS sync software makes it difficult to sync phone with PC
4) Poor internet , wifi and blue tooth function
5) Flimsy build quality equates to me dreading to use qwerty key pad.
I am moving on to a Nokia E52 this week definately as a result of my problems. NEVER HTC again.

I have had an HTS S710 for nearly two years now. It is the worst phone I have ever used, and is going in for repair for the fourth or fifth time now. The main board has been replaced twice!!! The front keypad once!!! I have had problems from day one with the settings for internet and MMS which incidentally still doesnt work for overseas!!! My e-mail doesnt work 100% either, As for the internet ...rather not go there. So yes heres to one who will never purchase an HTC phone again.......ever!!! Lasly the service for Leaf themselves leaves (excuse pun) a lot to be desired!!!
This is very good phone, but not for tech noobs :P
All SMARTphones require a SMART owners ;)
If you can manage RAM memory, choose good rom (with WM 6.1 or 6.5) and generally use this phone wisely - you'll love it! It's very cheap, but also useful! I have my Vox almost one year (and I bought it from second hand!) and battery life is very good ;)
This advise works with all WM smartphones!
I would not recommend this phone to anyone. Was on 2 yr contract, only used it for about 6 months before my patience ran out and I just started using my old phone again (Samsung D900, what a PLEASURE compared to this).
Had some good points, to be sure, eg camera which in normal lighting wasn't great turned out to be excellent for low-light shots, smart dialing was a dream, good music player, liked the slide out QWERTY feature, quite well designed. But on the downside...ah, where do I begin? File navigation was an absolute nightmare. Taking pics to memory card, unlike with Samsung where you have an option for 'Select All', combined with individual checkboxes for near-perfect user-friendliness, was a long and tedious affair, having to send em ONE by friggin' ONE, using a cut and paste logic and navigating each time. They call this a smartphone?? I must have missed something truly profound.
The logic of the menus are so...limiting, so downright annoying and amateurish...unbelievable. Ain't never seen anything like it, before or since. I also couldn't close my apps without actually having to go to Task Manager and killing it from there, how annoying, it just sits in the background and eats your memory like crazy. Phone also came close to freezing quite frequently, then unfroze after some 10-15 seconds. Could never manage to sync it with my pc, nor mms, whilst internet connectivity was a hit and miss affair to say the least. Buttons were unresponsive, often had to press the red button about 3 times to end a call, and when texting it was standard fare to have to go back and insert a letter that simply refused to appear (despite a distinct and proper tactile response). Alarm sucked too...unlike my Samsung,which has 3 different alarm settings each with own tone, time, day of week, etc, the HTC offers you the grand total of ONE alarm, and no option to customise it for only weekdays. Swell. Organiser wasn't too bad, though you'd have to scroll through a virtually endless series of quite useless fields before coming to the general remarks field. No logic, dude! That's what stands out most for me when I think of it. It's like it's been put together by a five-year old. Actually, that may be an insult to 5 year olds.
Overall, despite the one or two okayish features on the phone, I pretty much hated it. In case you haven't picked that up yet. Don't buy it, whatever you do. You'll live to regret it. Greetings from Cape Town!
