To max the volume of your external speaker... on your phone go to settings/ipod/volume limit/lock volume limit/enter a volume limit code/ then enter zero in each of the four boxes and then re-enter the same thing.
I made this Garage Band ring even louder by using an audio editor (like Fission) and normalizing it, making sure that the maximum level is reached without, of course, reaching the distortion level. This is my "must-hear-this-phone-ring" ring toneYes, internal speaker. That just "turns the speaker's volume knob" all the way up... Which is still weak. I'm going to edit a ringtone volume in iTunes like someone posted already when I get a chance... It works on my iPods so it should work the same for the phone
For those who want a really loud ring tone and has a Mac, you can find it at Library>Audio>Apple Loops>Apple>iLife Sound Effects>Work-Home>Cell Phone Ringing.
I imported this audio file to iTunes as mp3, dragged it to iFuntastic v.3 Ringtone page and voila! This ring is super loud (sounds almost like the ring tone used in the iPhone commercials). I heard it even while shopping at Abercrombie and Fitch! Hope it works for you
I am still hopeful that Apple will open up on ringtones; especially there own like "Cell Phone Ringing". We can not hack ours.Try the package called "SendSong" from the Installer. You need to convert this file to m4a in order for this to work with as a ringtone. Before installing, click the "More Info" on the bottom of the Package page so that you'll know what you're dealing with. Good luck!
Thanks for your previous support on ringtones and sending me Cell Phone Ringing. I used the renaming method to convert the Cell Phone Ringing toneUnfortunately, you're not alone with the volume issue during a call. The Apple iPhone forum is flooded with users who are experiencing the low volume problem (both from the earpiece and the speaker phone). As of now there is no fix for this. There is, however, a 3rd party fix being tested at this point.
I know this is hard to believe but I did it yesterday and it worked amazingly well... In front of the speaker there is a dust cover that restricts the sound... I have heard of people saying they just poked through it using a needle poking through the little speaker grill holes, I am not that cavelier though... I removed the antenna cover (the black part on the back) and peeled the dust cover off (its not glued there very well) and now my iPhone outpreforms my buddy's SYNC by a lot as far as volume. I would say it is at least twice as loud.
