I am not deaf. This is exactly what I meant. Have you tried using the speakerphone function on your phone?2.) Volume. People seem to livid over soft ringtones and call volumes. I don't want to criticize but I really have to wonder if these people are deaf. Are these the same people riding around in their cars with the speakers cranked to maximum? There is utterly no way I could miss the ringtone on this thing unless I was at a rock concert.
