Default VZW 8830 Ringer Volume Fixed????

Please Login to Remove!

According to Blackberry support document dated 12/24, they have fixed the low ringer volume issue. Does anyone know what they are talking about. I've got the latest SW I can find and it still terrible. I wonder if the VZW told them it was fixed. Am I missing something or are they nuts!

That just says they fixed the "no change in volume" issue. Not that it's too low to hear very well.

You're right. Now it changes from ridiculously low to very low to low. They're never going to fix this.

I recommend louder ringtones.
Seriously. There are are more important things to be upset about, like the Hollywood Writers' strike.

Default Ring tone problem IS a real issue!

No, it's a very real issue. It is VERY hard to hear the BlackBerry 8830 in moderate noise settings. "Louder ringtones" doesn't offer much help if the problem is caused by low speaker volume, as it is in this case. As a last resort I have had to set my ring tone to the ugliest standard tone in the bunch, which imitates an old style telephone ringer. I cringe every time I hear it (if I hear it). All of my .mpg and .wav customized tones are far too soft to be of any use. And yes, that's AFTER increasing their volume to the point of distortion using the Wavepad program.

I guess the thing that bothers me the most is that BlackBerry claims to have fixed the problem, when in fact it has not been fixed at all.
