i did a search but didnt' see what i was looking for... my co worker andi both noticed that when you DC sometimes the speaker is very low... however if you press the speaker button (sym) to turn it off and on the speaker is more then twice as loud. is this a bug or is it planned this way? i'd much rather have the speaker on its loudeest setting all the time
I'm sure you would, but I believe this was intentional so as not to disturb those of us around you with random surprise speakerphone broadcasts. This way, if you really want to be inconsiderate of others it has to be intentional -
I've experienced this as well -- it very well may be a bug, but I believe it's solvable. I simply use the jog dial when it's not loud enough -- even when the volume notches are ratcheted all the way up to full, if I roll the jog dial up a few clicks, the volume meter will do a little skip and raise up some more -- tough to explain.
Another option for you may be to enter Phone mode, click the jog dial and select Options, then select General Options, then set Default Call Volume to 100%. Dunno if it'll fix your problem with DC, but it's worth a shot.
It is deffinately the speaker button(bottom right). I just tested it in a call with my co-worker. I have been running into this issue for a while and finally found the remedy. This feature was built in for a more personal call for not interupting lets say, the surgeons around you! ;)
The volume of Nextel's 7520 is set at half of full volume by default whenever you receive a DC under speakerphone. This is more or less an design feature guided by ethics; for respect of those around you.
