I have a two-week old 8330 CURVE from BELL MOBILITY.  When using the media player -- music, video, etc. -- I can toggle the audio boost feature on/off with ZERO perceptible increase/decrease in the speakerphone or earbud audio level.


A friend's 8310 (from rogers) boost is very, very, perceptible.


  1. I went back to the store, gave them my microSD, and got the same no-boost result on a new/different 8330;
  2. Called BM tech support and he tested a unit there with same no-boost result.
  3. Tech checked with his escalation desk and they said that's the way RIM set it up for the 8330s.

Is it that the 8330 being CDMA, which is intrinsically harder on the battery, is audio limited in favor of OEM battery performance (or the appearance of sufficiency)?


  1. What's up?
  2. How do I get my boost to boost.  The levels are a tide too low when listening while in noisier places.
