Someone with a MAC? We need someone to use Apple's Property List Editor and change the default settings in SystemSoundMaximumVolume.plist.
I was told the Developers tools came with the OS.
I can't get in this file SystemSoundMaximumVolume.plist to edit the settings. I am using Vista. Can some one with a MAC open and edit this file. I have seen the settings inside the file (was shown), but haven't found any way of doing it with a PC.
my problem is just the opposite, the ringer & alerts on my phone are PLENTY loud! When my phone rings or alerts everyone can hear it all over the house! I had to turn it down because it wakes my 9 mo. old son up and is WAY too loud at work or in public. It rang in the mall the other day and just echoed on the food court (but then when I answered it , as usual, I couldn't hear ANYTHING the person was saying!)Don't lose sight of the other problem here. Ringer and alert volumes. These are just as important since if you can't hear your phone ringing it doesn't matter if the earpiece volume is too low. Personally, my earpiece and speaker volume are plenty loud, guess I got a later version. However with the phone in my pocket I can barely hear the ringer, and that's in a quiet setting.
My Volume limit is all the way up. That is one of the first things I did when I got it. Wanted my iPod as loud as possible.For those with soft volume, check to make sure that the Volume was not "pre-set". I did this to myself, trying to keep the volume at a reasonable level because initially it blew me outta my chair. Silly me.
Go to Settings, iPod, and Volume limit. For those that cannot hear, turn it up. better to have too much and you can turn it down, than to have not enough with no way of turning it up.
the Volume limit does not just affect the iPod app either. It affects everything through the ear piece in the phone, as well as the ear buds. It didn't seem to affect the bottom speaker nearly as much, but it does.
