I poked holed in mine and made a big improvement. I don't know about "40%" louder but it is definitely louder making it much easier to hear the ringer and text alerts, etc. For some reason though, my speaker phone doesn't seem any louder but I rarely use it anyway. I didn't worry any about damaging the speaker and I'm not concerned about dust...heck, think about all the dust getting in through the headphone jack.

Yeah, you can't be afraid to do it once you decide. The first time I did it I didn't go in far enough and thought it didn't work. After mustering up some cajones, I did it again and just went for it. Drastic improvement.

Don't stress it... you really have to work hard to muck it up.
