I can barely hear with the volume cranked up..Speakerphone is so weak! How can Apple make a device with such crappy sound quality? Man, I'm pissed.. I can barely hear people when I'm driving.

There's been a ton of threads on this. I'm hoping if enough people complain to Apple they will fix it with some kind of a software upgrade-but that may not even be possible.

I agree the speakerphone isn't very loud. It works well for me indoors but is weak when you're in a car or anywhere loud. The headset volume seems fine though... check to make sure the max volume isn't set.

It's a joke, really. They dropped the ball big time with the call volume. It makes the phone almost worthless in some areas.

sticking with the battery upgrade theory
on this one.

Want more battery life?

Or, want more volume?

It also seems to me... that those of us
choosing the device for merely "cell phone"
qualities... that there's clearly better choices.

But for those of us choosing a device for all of its many attributes
aside from the mere cell phone feature... it's clearly an Item.

again, still having fun,

John

lol, are you kidding me? I've probably had 50 different cell phones and I've never, ever heard volume this bad in my life.

I put the Ear buds that came with the phone, and it sounds MUCH Better..Looks like you have to use this phone like your listening to an Ipod..with the ear buds, the phone is fine..but dang, they better fix this!

Probably fixable with a firmware update if not by a software update.
