Okay, I, like almost everyone else, is annoyed with the volume of the iPhone...it's pitiful. Many people have said they have poked the holes with a pin and that the volume has actually doubled.

I want to know if it's safe to do it? Risk? Certain way to do it? Will it void the warrinty? etc etc etc

I used Volume Booster. From what I've read, it has mixed reviews, but for me personally, it works. Try it. What can it hurt? And the warranty issue is no longer an issue.

The volume is awesome compared to the OTB iPhone. I poked several holes in it con mucho gusto! I don't think it would void the warranty unless Apple took it apart and saw the holes in the dustcover. Just don't hammer the pin in! Just gently poke the holes.

In did this a while ago when the thread on the subject over at modmyifone was a big hit. It really does work. And, someone posted pics of an opened iPhone showing that the speaker is not near the holes, but deeper inside. You can probably go in like 1/2 inch, and only about 5 or 6 holes are actually able to be penetrated.

Unlike some of the "IGNORANT" people on this forum, I figured he could save some of us some time.

Ignorant = Going 17-0 and not closing the deal. (But still thinking 16-0 is "something")

















nice avatar, Chump.
That is the best you got? I posted that avatar before the playoffs started and they went 18-0 before "not closing the deal"...Learn the game before you open your suck. Someone with OJ as their idol should know football...Clown!

That is not even close to the best I've got. Not wasted on you, at least.

your team did not close the deal.

You are bragging about 16-0 ( when they cheated and still got their ass beat)

OJ is obviously NOT my idiol if you could read

You are, quite frankly, butchering the English langauge.

















... and STILL a chump.

(Read up on the story before you open you pie hole. Once you do, we can discuss the so called cheating.)

OJ is obviously NOT my idiol if you could read (It was a sarcastic comment and it is “idol” not “idiol”.)

You are, quite frankly, butchering the English langauge. (At least I can spell the words a clown should know.)

Do you have a copy of that pic showing how far too go? Is there an angle or anything? Thanks:)

He is saying to search, it isn't that hard and you would get answers much faster. I am sure people get tired of answering the same questions over and over again.
