Default How is the Bold voice quality and ear piece volume?

Please Login to Remove!

One complaint about my Bold is that even a full volume the earpiece volume is not quite a loud as I would like is less the quiet surroundings. Hoping that RIM has done something to help here. I hear the external speaker is outstanding and am looking forward to that.

Just wonder how the device does in the phone department. I use ATT in Jacksonville and can not remember having a dropped call in months.

It's plenty loud but I do find the sound to be a little piercing at times. Could use a little more base IMO. Don't get me wrong, it's very clear sounding but I actually prefered my curve's sound balance.

If you haven't tried this already, go into the Phone Options menu and under General Options try:

Enhance Handset (or Headset) Call Audio.

You can choose:
Previous
Normal
Boost Bass
Boost Treble

I boosted the bass and it sounds good.

Wow, I can not wait to get my hands on my Bold on Tuesday or Wednesday. This thing sounds really nice.
