Welcome to Vodafone Community
Since upgrading to ICS on my Sensation, I've noticed that the notification volume and ringer volume, previously unlinked, are now irrevocably linked to each other. This is exceedingly irritating - Is there an update on the way to de-link these two volumes, or maybe a free package to do the job without a firmware update?
Solved! Go to best answer.
I have just answered a similar query here regarding volume and have found an app that allows you to change certain volumes to what you need.
Give it a go and let me know how you get on.

Hi sbrk and RogerStenning
Thanks for coming back to us. I've forwarded the details onto to our device teams to see if this can be raised with the manufacturer directly.
I can understand why you would feel that this is frustrating, especially as the functionality has always been there previously.
Editied re reply above.
OK, so if HTC aren't responsible for this, how come no-one noticed this damnably stupid 'feature' before? And who at Google do we complain to, and are we likely to get any meaningful result?
Thanks for the suggestion; unfortunately, as you said, under ICS the ringer and notification volumes are still linked, so like the other free app suggested above, the problem remains.
The good news is that the silent ringtone for notifications has done the job; I found one on this site - http://www.jetcityorange.com/silent-ringtone/ - and downloaded the ten-second silent MP3 file, placing it in the notifications folder as you suggested; it's worked a treat, so many thanks for the advice on how to do this
I've put ICS Enhanced Ringer Control app on my Sensation - it seems to work fine and costs only £1.99 - though I object to having to pay anything just to sort out a Google b....s up
I'm not too worried so long as it works! The guy who's written it seems to keen on getting feedback and suggestions for improvements
