Obviously turned the volume up full but I used to be able to hear my old phone when it was downstairs. Can't hear this phone at all. Works perfectly well otherwise. Text also relatively quiet and short so I miss those too. Not deaf by the way.

I tried to add a ringtone off the App Store but you have to do some weird rigermerole via iTunes. Got an iPad too if that helps so can anyone talk me through finding a free or cheap loud ring and text tone and transferring it to the phone? I don't use iTunes at all.

Feeling very dense

Mine's very quiet, too - iPhone 6sX. Will await instructions!

i haven't got an iphone, but some phones have other settings so that different notifications are at different levels

you have to rummage about a bit, but I have my ringtone volume right up, and everything else is at normal....then the volume on the side still turns stuff up and down

Helps if you have vibrate on. I don't always hear mine but do hear the vibrations.
When you go into Settings, Sounds, you can increase the ringer volume too, or use the buttons on the side when the phone is ringing.

I would also experiment with ring tones, some are louder than others

I have vibrate on but it only helps if it's very near me.

I have the volume turned right up. I'll check setting though.

Will also set to another ringtone.

How do I use iTunes to download one if all else fails? I paid for GOT on my old phone but no idea how to retrieve it :-(

Think I've found iTunes sync in settings. One step nearer.

Settings is fully up for ringtone volume.

I have to set it so that volume buttons on side don't turn down ringer volume only videos/music etc. So basically ringer volume is always set on high unless I have put phone on silent. Might be worth checking?

Yes. It's all on full at the side. x
