I need loud speaker to hear my ringtones as I am always in noisy environments

The 8800 is WAY better than the 8700. Not only louder but clearer!

great!
One more thing
When I had the 8100 before got rid of it It kept failing to read the microsd card.
I think the flip slot to hold it was loose.
Anyone experiencing problems with the memory card?

The 8800 is very loud! The one gripe I had w/ my Pearl was that the volume was very low. I had to drill holes at the back of the battery door on one of the 8100's I owned. The 8800 however is extremely loud, I find it just as loud if not louder than my 8700.

I basically entered my profile setting from my 8700 to my 8800 and found I had to go back and decrease the volume on most of the settings. There are some really nice new ringtone/alert sounds. I do not want my BB to start playing a song and the board room table, just a nice sound would be nice. No RAP for me!

I had to do teh same. I did a comparison of the the 3 (8800, 8700 and the pearl and I have to say at the same setting the 8800 was way too loud with the same tone on all 3. Since i am using several GPS solutions (in evaluation) the sound on the 8800 is so loud that i don't even have to worry about lower the sound on the car radio. I even decreased the volume on it and it is still perfect (with the medium setting on telenav is even higher than the loud setting on the 8700 or the pearl.
