How to increase volume of headset or speaker Alcatel STAR, Alcatel IDOL, Alcatel SPOP

engineer mode volume increase alcatel idol, star, xpop, spop, tpop, mpop, snap, idol ultra, idol x, scribe easy, scribe x

I want to share my knowledge about how you can increase volume of headset, speaker, loudspeaker etc. after dial the some specific numbers(code) on dialer which enter into "Engineer Mode".
Actually this trick is very easy to do, every even inexperienced can do it without any problems.
This trick is compatible with most Android based Alcatel One Touch models like Alcatel IDOL, Alcatel STAR, Alcatel SPOP, Alcatel IDOL Ultra and others.

So you need to dial these numbers to entering into Enginner Mode*#*#3646633#*#*

REMEMBER DO IT AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!

Guide:

  1. Dial on dialpad *#*#3646633#*#*.
  2. Slide your finger left twice and enter into option Audio there are several options:
    - Normal mode(here's adjusts the music volume from the speaker)
    - Headset mode(here's for headset volume for Music, FmRadio etc.)
    - Loudspeaker mode(FmRadio, Incoming call volume, Loudspeaker on call etc.)
    - Speech Enhancement(not needed for normal user)
    - Debug Info(not needed for normal user)
    - Speech Logger(not needed normal user)
    - Audio Logger(not needed normal user)
  3. So for example, let's increase the volume for headphones of Music.
  4. Enter into "Headset mode" go to "Type" drop-down menu and select Media(for FmRadio is FMR).
  5. Then go to "Level" and select Level 6(it means that the latter level when the goal of increasing and decreasing the sound of Vol +/- buttons).
  6. Now on "Value is 0~255" almost the end where is located and increase on my Alcatel STAR value is "128" increase with 10, 20, 30 but important remember don't increase to maximum risk to damage the speaker of Phone.
  7. As you see in the end there is another option with value "Max Vol.0~160" on my phone's 140(on other Alcatel phones may be different values) if my value at first option is at maximum you can increase and this but don't touch only in a pinch.
  8. I hope to understand you my long guide of increasing volume on Alcatel phone's.
note: on Normal mode-> again for music is "Media".
