Tele-Phony VI

Speaking of spam, I just got my first SMS spam. It says:

AT&T Wireless: Test your knowledge with text trivia. Type A for Music, B for Entertainmant, C for Sports & send to 2003. To stop msgs reply with END at no cost.

Guess what I just did? Seems to me that this is something people should have to sign up for, not opt out of. I was delighted when my phone beeped just now, and crestfallen when I saw it was an advert. Also, at 10 cents an outgoing SMS, this could get pretty expensive quite quickly, no? To my surprise, AT&T offers all sorts of SMS games. I can even change my ring tone by SMS.

But what I really want to do is figure out how to adjust the phone's volume.
