New iPhone Volume

#1
I have noticed since I got a new iPhone yesterday that the volume on it is allot louder than my old iPhone I bought the first week of July. I've been sitting here checking out some tunes in the iTunes Music Store and I am just listening to them via the built in speaker. Sounds great. Whatever the problem was in my old iPhone, I hated it. The sound would go up and down all on it's own. Sometimes after syncing it would be loud than an hour later, I could barely hear it ring. That was always my only dislike with the iPhone.

Glad to hear you finally got a remedy to the problem. I've never really noticed an issue with the speaker volume on my phone, though, I hardly ever use the speaker anyway.

That's one of my main gripes about the iPhone. I can barely ever hear it ring.

Do you have the latest update? I have never had a speaker problem, but some have said the the last update improved their volume.

:laugh2: You are probably right. I have always been happy with my volume, but I remember people saying how much better it was with 1.1.2.

I returned a week 28 production for a week 49... It seems to me that the display on the week 28 iPhone was much brighter and that the color and contrast was outstanding! The week 49 production display is just avg IMHO. Did you notice this difference?

Thanks,Paul

Oy, I remember back around iDay all of the controversy surrounding the series 5 or series 7 iPhone screens. I know that one was initially said to have the little white pixel dots all of the screen or something of that nature.

I take it from your post, that you don't notice any difference in the two displays? That's great! I might have to take mine back and compare it to the other iPhones at the Apple Store. Everyone of my friends noticed how poor the display was compared to my earlier production model. :eek:

Well it's good that your iPhone is louder cause I'm about to get an iPhone soon and hope not to get a phone with poor volume so since yours is newer I might luck out lol.

This is just for your perusal; several other users and I have done this mod with great success, though:

My volume has increased dramatically.
It did help make mine a little louder. I really noticed mine louder though after I used the new version of iPhone ringtone maker. It had an advanced setting where you can actually adjust the volume up higher. My ringtones are so much louder now. But thanks for the tip it did help a little.

I noticed a pretty big increase, so I guess mileage varies. Maybe I got better penetration with the needle as well. There's no speaker directly behind the holes, just a thin shield and a port. The speaker is actually higher up in the phone.

This is true so people don't have to worry about piercing the cone. I did this a week ago and it worked.

I still have my original iPhone working right here. Since I synced my new iPhone I have the same wallpaper on the screen. All the settings including brightness are identical due to the syncing from ONE backup. I would say the color or the brightness in the NEW iPhone looks slightly better or brighter.

I don't remember how to look at what number the screen has or I would post that here. Maybe someone here can tell me and I can post the numbers here.

Edit: I found out how to see what version screen is on each iPhone:
New iPhone: 7520768
Old iPhone: 7455232

You can find out which panel your iPhone has by dialing *3001#12345#*

It would also be interesting to try and see if there is any pattern to which LCD panel has been having troubles with dead/stuck pixels for those who may have some.
