Default New to 8830

I have a question??

1. The volume seems very low, even in loud. My 7100 is much louder-I changed the volume to 100% and it still seems low??

if I am in the car I use a blue tooth headset. That is pretty loud. For louder ringtones you can get those in numerous places or just make your own, but I gathered it was listening levels you were talking about.

If it's the ringer volume you're talking about, it's a well known problem. Just search on '8830 ringer volume' and you'll see lots of discussion. I like everything about my 8830 with that one exception. I'm hoping it gets fixed in with a software update.

I use a ring that has a high pitch. It may not be louder but it you may be able to discriminate it from the others. (Calypso)

If you are not on the newest OS download it, this is one of the fixes.

I noticed that it said "Enhanced Audio" as well, but I didn't notice any difference. Could still ring much louder.
