    I have several questions that I can't seem to find the answers to.

    1) Is there a way to set how long the screen timeout is? Especially when I get a new email or message and the phone wakes up on the lock screen, is there a way to minimize the time that the display is on for?

    2) Is there a way to be notified only once for new emails? Let's say I get an email and don't check my phone, when a new email comes 30 minutes later can I set it not to vibrate for that second email?

    3) Any way to only be notified about emails in Gmail's priority inbox? Or would I have to create a list of approved senders to make a VIP folder? And...on that VIP exactly do I make it so that I only get notified about new email from VIPs?

    4) Is there any way to set a different volume for say, the ringtone and the notifications? Like having quiet notifications and a louder ringtone? Would I have to create a custom loud ringtone and quiet notification sound to achieve this?

    Thank you all in advance!

    1) Yes, it's called Auto-Lock. It's under Settings, then General. Scroll down a ways and you will see a setting that looks like this: Auto-Lock 1 Minute. Tap that and you can set it. BUT 1 Minute is the lowest it will go.

    2) No not for e-mail but for SMS messages you can.

    3) If you use the default email app there is a VIP folder that you can use. You an set up the default app to use Gmail but i'm not sure if the VIP folder will work for gmail. I have an iCloud email account so the VIP folder shows up for that account.

    4) No the ringtone/notification volume is unified.
