    Low Voice Volume on Phone calls on iphones

    I found the Iphone's Voice Volume to be extremely low. Has anyone experienced this problem. My friend who also brought the same iphone has the same issues. The voice volume is turned up all the way and it's still difficult to hear people on the other line.

    Any feedback would be appreciated. Otherwise, the phone is awesome.....however I must get this voice volume fixed or it's going to be a very experience Ipod/Internet Device for me.

    i cant hardly hear on mine either.. When I play a song under the ipod the speaker is very loud but when I receive a call i can barely hear the person. I have the volume turned to max but it is still not better. If it was the same as the mp3 that would be nice. Ant Tips?

    You might want to try putting it on speaker when it starts dialing or using the included ear buds. That's what I'm doing when I make/receive phone calls.

    maybe I'm unique, but mine is very loud. It is so loud that I can put it down on a table and i can still hear it, almost as if it was on speakerphone.

    My volume is great. As a test, just to see if its me or not, could you call washington mutual and listen to the recorded voice. 800-788-7000 to me it is almost too loud when the phone is turned all the way up. and like the other poster i can easily hear it through the earpiece when the phone is on the table. Let me know what you think?

    I am VERY picky about my earpiece volume and I find it plenty loud enough. I did just get the iphone last night so Ive only made 1 or 2 calls but all it takes is one usually. I was nice enough to call my buddy from the demo phone in the Apple store and with all the noise and chaos I could hear just fine. No its not super loud but I can hear good.

    volume

    Take the plastic cover off the front it blocks the ear hole cover. I had the same problem I couldn't hear either ......I agree they still need to increase the volume with an upgrade

    Tried this and I can still it well enough from 3 feet away to understand what is being said, but i did talk to someone yesterday and had a hard time hearing him, but he's a bit of a low talker.

    Sometimes that depends on who you're talking to. Whenever I talk to someone using a Verizon Wireless or Sprint phone, they come in much softer as if they were using a T-mobile or AT&T phone. It doesn't matter which phone I use.

    that has definitely been my experience too. talking to a VZW person is much quieter than talking to an AT&T person. I made a test call using the iPhone out on the floorroom to my girlfriend, who uses VZW, and even with a lot of background noise going on (people doing backflips over iPhone), the earpiece volume seemed fine to me. Not exceptionally loud, but it does the job.

    I did until today. When I finally cut off a portion that covered the ear piece, I was finally able to hear without using the speaker phone. D'oh!
