    earpiece volume too low on iPhone 4

    Is it me or the earpiece volume is too low?? I mean I can barely hear the other person on the line. I know that's probably the noise cancellation is kicking in but still that sucks considering I didn't have such a problem with my 3GS which was pretty loud. Defective???

    The noise canceling should bother the other caller more than you.

    It's the first thing I noticed when I made a test call. It's almost on mute, even though I have the volume jacked to the max. I hope this isn't going to be the norm.

    same thing happened to mine on a previous model.....

    then I noticed (not really clear to see at first) that there is a small plastic protection sheet on the earpiece...all was fine after I removed it.

    Did you take the plastic screen protector off the front (the one it comes with?) My wife was complaining left an right until I pointed out to her that the plastic film is covering the ear piece. After removing the film she had no problem with the volume level.

    I know exactly that small piece because it happened to my friend on his 3gs. So, yes i took it out. With the 3gs I had to put the earpiece volume couple of notches down but with this one its a no go situation. I bet its the noise canceling mic causing this. I wish we can disable it.

    I don't think its the mic/speaker. I think the problem was the plastic and your not willing to admit to yourself you are wrong.

    Mine is MUCH louder than my 3G. I have mine a few notches down from full volume.

    When I got the iPhone 4 I just set it up as new and did not restore the backup from my 3GS. I wonder if the volume settings got carried over in the restore and maybe they're "off"? Like ru4real said, try cycling up and down a few times and see if that helps.

    Removed the plastic and all was well. If yours is low compared to those at the store get it swapped out.
    No worries
