Default 8130 Volume

Please Login to Remove!

Can anyone tell me how loud the 8130 is? I love the volume of my 8320 and my previous 8800 was very loud also. I tried the Pearl (8100) briefly and wasn't thrilled at the low volume. I had to cut holes in the back portion of the battery door so my music sounded clearer and to hear the phone ring so I wouldn't miss calls when I was in a noisy environment. I am debating on switching to the 8130 and was curious if it's louder than the 8100.

The back of the 8130 has been changed compared to the 8100. It has a slot in it already to allow sound to come through. I don't know if I would call it loud but it certainly can be heard with little problem.

I got my 8130 the other day and I do find it quite loud when playing music but ringer wise I don't find it that loud at all. I have to keep my BlackBerry on vibe and ring otherwise if I am in a noisy environment I won't hear it ring. I guess I am spoiled by how loud my 83xx devices are

In my profile I have the volume set to high, as with medium I found it low and with high it's also low.
