@nun: Yes, you can do both. I guess you are asking because of past experiences with samsung phones, I know that was an issue. I inform you that all Samsung handsets since '06 can be set to play your own mp3 when you receive a call/message

Never had an issue with it again, but now the headphone plug has an issue, it garbles the sound and I have to press hard right on the center in the back of the phone to get back the audio on the headset.
Is it just me or the GPS Navigation is very terrible.
Everything else is great, besides me dropping it and making the loudspeaker not work half the time. :-(

Go to your phone's dialer and type the following "*#*#197328640#*#*"
This will bring you to the phones hidden default settings. Go to Audio->Handset->Volume->. If you open the first 2 selections you will see the speakers output settings for level of the volume rocker setting (ie 0=70% 1=75% 2=80% 3=84% 4=88% 5=92%). You can edit ANY of those levels. For mine, I have my settings start at 0=75%, and 5=100% of the speaker output, with intervals of 5% speaker output in between.
You can change the same settings for Speaker mode, as well as for use with a headset. Cheers
