GB I have the option to link or keep separate.
I personally prefer separate control over these settings.
Why would you wish to permanently link them?
Could you not simply just set these values where you wish them individually and be satisfied?

How hard is it to turn one or both up or down. Custom settings are what makes a phone individual.Personally i like the idea they are not linked. My ringer can be turn full on or off and my notifications to just a whisper...Perfect.

If I want my ringer to be quiet, I want my notifications to also be quiet. I should be able to do this via the volume rocker, like I can on my One X, and used to be able to do prior to my I9100's ICS update.

It's quite a nuisance if I want them to be adjusted concurrently.

I've read that ICS is supposed to force (or give the option of) linking, which is the point of my thread. Is this only the case for every phone except the I9100?

Its not a custom setting, this is supposed to be stock ICS, i certainly wouldnt have chose to have this crap feature.

It now takes 4 presses to get to the menu every time you wander into a quiet situation, and then another 4 when you leave it (not including actually moving the volume sliders).

I personally find that very annoying when there's a volume control on the side of my phone.

Is there a way to implement this on stock Samsung ICS (Touchwiz)? Tried quick settings but the option is greyed out.

Thanks

I've had this issue too. Thought the volume buttons should control both ringer and notifications but they didnt. Im running Caulkin's ICS rom too so that may have something to do with it. Regardless, after MUCH searching and downloading of apps that I thought would do this but they didn't, I finally found an app that did this for me! Quick Settings by Halfbit - note that there are two apps by different developers called the same thing. I didn't try the other one but this one worked.

Strange though, the selection to link the notification and ringer volumes is checked, but grayed out. So guess you have to uninstall the app to change this configuration..

Apparently not. Stock/ota ics for droid4 also removes the checkbox to allow you to link the volumes if you want to. I want to link them as well so when i turn it down at a meeting, i don't get blown out of my chair when i get a text.

Setting everything once and forgetting it doesn't work for a lot of people. For me, i need it quiet at work, then loud while not at work so i can hear ringer/sms sounds over road noise/music while driving, or if i leave my phone upstairs at home. I use moto's smart actions to handle the volume changing automatically (think of it as a gimped version of tasker) but now that ringtone and notification vol are no longer linkable, and smart actions can't control notification volume, i consider it to be broken. It turns down ringer vol just fine, but notifications are still crazy loud. Very annoying. Can't wait for cm9 (or even 10) for the droid4!
