I have a habit of trying all the live phones when I go into a cell phone shop and play with all the volume levels on all the phones that are live- I have noticed that CDMA (especially Sprint phones) offer the loudest earpiece volume- not all of them but most of them. From what I am reading here I should not even consider the 8700. I just don't understand why manufactures / carriers don't boost the volume so it suits everyone- it's that why they have adjustments!
The Sprint Treo 650 benefits from the addition of Volume Care. Without it, volume levels are very low. I prefer to have volume settings at the high end.
