At least for me, the speakerphone is abysmal and a flat out joke. It pisses me off that Apple calls it a "speakerphone" when i can barely hear it when its 2 feet away from me. Anyway, I remember reading since the speakerphone is right next to the mic it can never be too loud or else it will interfere with the conversation. So, the question is, will the speakerphone ever be functional?


And they claimed 1.1.1 made it louder, it didn't.

So what are your 2 cents?

I'd be happy if I could just hear my voice mail over speaker...

I too would be happy if the speakerphone would work...it seems that with 1.0.2 it worked better than in 1.1.1...maybe in 1.1.2?

Congrats dude but that pisses me off how these updates are inconsistent with their effects.

I went to the Apple store on monday because i wanted to exchange my phone so i can have a better speakerphone. The genius pulled out his own iPhone and showed me the sound was the same on his. He said some iPhone have a better speakerphone because the hardware is different (=different manufacturer or different production). Anyways, he said he couldn't do anything for me.

I was really pissed! On my way out, I stopped by a demo iPhone and went to jailbreakme.com and jailbroke the ***** and started installing apps. This one kid saw me and took a picture. It was pretty funny, yet useless but it made me feel better. It was like a FU to Apple.

Oh maybe i should mention i hate Apple and steve jobs (he's some evil man!) but i do think my iPhone is the best thing i own (after my nice little audi of course:)

I have 1.1.2 and I haven't notice any speaker improvement -____-" I suppose this is more of a hardware issue...theres like only so many things you can do with the firmware to the speakers...Id say the only way to get your speaker louder is to turn off sound check and equalize it to something other than Off...although this would only work with just iPod and Videos "/

Ok I have to go to an Apple store now. That is the greatest thing I have ever heard!
