New BB Bold Low Handset/Ear Plugs/Speaker Phone Volume

Has any noticed that the volume on the bold is not that loud even when it's turned up all the way? This is on the handset and also with the ear buds in and also the speaker phone when enabled.

 

Why cant I adjust it higher? I can play music on it through the speaker phone and it's really loud but a call with speaker phone isnt as loud as the music.

 

Is there anyway to adjust this higher then using the buttons on the side when your in a call/ear piece or speakerphone?

 

Regards,

You can set the Handset Volume in the Preferences:

 

Hit the Green Button -> Menu Button -> Options -> General Options -> Default Call Volume -> 100%

To which "Options" do you refer to? To the icon called Options?

I have the same feeling. The charger and earplug which is RIM provideed with the bold is very cheap. No even as good as the charger of my 8100

I upgraded the firmware on my bold to the latest version. The sound seems a little better but it still isnt loud enough. My old 8800 was better than the bold when it comes to handset sound (ear piece) and headphones. I'm going to drop into my phone dealer to maybe give another handset a try.

Thanks a bunch Javec. The volume on mine was set to "previous" whatever that is.  At 100% its now fine. Smiley Happy
