Just got my new red 8310...and I am very happy to be back to the BlackBerry after using several different phones. I am really stoked with the phone...as I was with my original 8300, except for one area...the low volume of the earpiece speaker. My 8300 was 3-4 times louder than this new 8310...and I even tried to exchange it for a new one today, except the new one was as low or even lower than mine!! I have some hearing loss in my right, or "phone ear"...so a loud volume is essential.
And, yes...I have used the side volume keys to set the volume on maximum.
Is anyone having this same problem? I have heard something about taking a pin and sticking it into the holes in the earpiece screen...but I don't want to screw the speaker up by jacking with it.
How can I improve the volume?
