    Galaxy 4 notifications

    Well, I set it on top of my desk, on the side of my lap when driving or it's in my purse. I wish the vibrate would be loud enough for me and a loud notification. Is there an app for a loud text notification?

    Esteem - Hearing Implant?

    HI, as for the Esteem, I am looking into seeing if I qualify. Also, is not because people want to hide their hearing aide surgical procedure.
