Either the iPhone’s the greatest thing since self-slicing bread or the worst thing ever.
It seems to come down to the individual unit itself.
The guys over at iPhone Atlas are reporting that dozens of iPhone owners have expressed concern with the volume from their iPhone’s earpieces, speakerphone, ringer and alert sounds. In these cases, the volume has proven below normal and the quick fix of setting the volume to the maximum level has sometimes resulting in a severe echoing noise.
Currently available fixes are as follows:
-Apple’s recently-released iPhone Update 1.0.1 seems to have provided a volume boost to some users.
-Performing a restore function can sometimes result in a temporary volume boost.
-Connecting to a stereo or Bluetooth headset can result in higher volumes for calls, but doesn’t address the problem at its core.
Per the article, the problem seems to affect specific iPhones rather than every unit, even though some readers have reported that their replacement units exhibited identical problems.
If you’ve seen this problem on your iPhone or have ideas regarding a workaround or fix, let us know in the comments or forums.
