I need to know how I can lower the volume on my phone ringer without lowering the volume for messaging alerts. At night, I need Messaging to be LOUD, but I want my phone ringer to be barely audible (note: ringer still needs to emit some sound, not completely turned off).
One option is to use a silent (or very quiet) ringtone for phone calls and then have the normal sound play for messages. This site has a walkthrough. You could also use the same trick to silence calls from specific numbers.
