I am creating a notification with Android's NotificationManager.
Is it possible to 'override' the phone's volume (mute) settings in such a way, that the notification's sound is ALWAYS played?
The reason I need this is the following: The notification is so important, that vibration alone may not be enough. The user MUST be alerted. So a sound shall be played, even if the phone is muted or the volume is very low.
