My Device: 8830

Low, almost non-existant sound level...is it me or the phone

I have my 8830 set to the "loud" profile, with the volume levels set to max, and 100% (depending on the Options you are looking at).  However, even sitting next to this thing, the ring level is barely audible.  Is this normal or a possible defective unit?  I have a Motorola Adventure cell, and even with it in the living room, with the tv and stereo on, and me in the bedroom (the other side of my condo and with a couple walls between us), I can hear it ring in a text or call.  However, witht the 8830, if it wasn't for the unit vibrating on the table next to me, I wouldn't have known it was trying to tell me a call was coming in. 

Does anyone have any ideas/thoughts?
