I just spoke with Apple tech support. The plastic screen film protector that came with the iPhone is causing the volume to be super low, even though I pumped it up to maximum. Using a razor blade, I cut away the tiny speaker hole (on the iPhone) without having to remove the entire plastic screen protector. Now the volume is great.

yeah, I did that too, but I still feel that the volume is too low in some instances. The iPod part of the phone is super loud, but the phone calls are often very soft.

I don't say this facetiously but were you supposed to keep that plastic flim on the screen? I took it off as soon as I got the phone.

personally, I left just the part that goes over the main screen on there until I get some shields. Apple was sold out on those when I went to get my phone.

I'll try this when I get home, if it'll go back on. I just figured it wouldn't work with something covering the screen.

well, I also got the Speck toughskin case for it, so that plastic tucks under there nicely. I have on corner that sometimes comes off a bit on that plastic, but I can just rub down on it and it seems to stick right back on.

so the iPhone comes with a stock screen protector? musta missed that...
well, it has that plastic on it, like they put on everything. My Mac Pro had these giant sheets of it when I got that too.

although, if yours didn't have any plastic on it at all, I would question that situation.
