    iPhone earpiece volume too low!

    ok so I have a JB iPhone and I've noticed that when I'm on a call the volume is soo low even after raising it to the highest level. Its ok in a quiet room but in the car or in a loud environment i always have to ask the person on the other line to repeat themselves. Is there a jb app or anything that will raise it? Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

    Yes, there is- I think it is under tweaks if you are running cydia. There is also one for installer, but I am not too sure what it is called.

    Your best bet, IMO, is to use your headset that came with the phone....or upgrade to a better one.

    I hope i'm not suggesting the obvious here....
    Have you increased the volume 'in call'. Mine drove me nuts (default is 50%) to the point where i was bringing it back until i realized i had to increase the volume during a call. The same holds true for speakerphone. Increase it while on speaker.

    I go through the same thing. Very hard to hear in a car or loud place. Dont really see any light at the end of the tunnel for this one.

    The tweak in cydia doesn't help that much and I also have the same issue. My jawbone is really the only way I can hear in a noisy environment.

    Welcome to the iPhone, and although there are apps out there, I haven't found that any of them actually work. I still wonder why Apple made this great phone, with awesome looks, and yet performance wise (as a phone) it's pretty brutal.

    I remember my friend had a volume complaint about his first gen. iPhone. He took it to an Apple store and a "genious" carefully cut away part of the clear protective plastic sheet it shipped with that was covering the earpiece. Helped immensely.

    Well, we're hoping that most people are smarter than your friend.

    I haven't had volume problems on my phone, other than not having the speaker in the right spot. Move the phone a little and I can hear loud and clear.

    Hmm, I have a 2g and I downloaded the vlume booster for fw 2.2. My phone got loud as ****. It stays on about 50% volume now. I didn't do any physical changes, just dl the app.
    Do or do not; there is no try.

    ya the volume on the iPhone sucks. It is very low even on the highest setting. Luckily I always use my Jawbone2. So the only time I have to mess with trying to hear on iPhone is when the Jawbone battery dies.
