I find the volume buttons on the side of the phone do a great job of this.

That is not possible. Ensure you are using the most up to date software version.

I work in an environment that has an average dB level of 90-95 and I can still hear the phone. More than loud enough. If yours is quiet after maxing the volume and updating the software I advise you returnn it.

yeah after turning my volume all the way up it still seems to be low. it sounds lower then when i have 1 bar of volume on the speaker in walkman mode. i found an easy solution which is to just turn on ur speaker when someone calls. but is there any way to make this option default?

AGIAN!! if you suspect the phone is faulty have it repaired / replaced.

It is not possible to set the speaker as a default.

Seems low compared to what exactly?

Incase I haven't already mentioned it, if you feel the phone is faulty then get it exchanged. I never found the volume of the W810i to be an issue. The only time where the volume has been poor is where I have used a downloaded *ahem* mp3 file and it was ripped with a low volume setting however using music ripped straight from a CD have always been more than loud enough.

try using different headphones, I use Sony EX71, pretty much the same in design but the ear buds fit better thus sealing in the sound...treble's slightly stronger too

Zeb, would it not be a better idea perhaps to get it repaired or replaced?

i am not expert, like Zeb.... but i reckon maybe the 'it needs replacing' advice is shortsighted.

maybe, just maybe there is a limit set on it, like on the NWA mp3 walkman, but wihtout the fix.

maybe we can accept that? its just a phone after all


Posted: 15:18 20 Sep 06 #12
There is limits set on the phones because of idiotic ****icans who sue at the slightest opportunity. Same with the Motos, and with the NWA series walkman. There was a fix for that (which got applied to mine as soon as I had it out of the box...) which unfortunately isn't available on the phone. The one on the NWA is firmware related and the only way to change the firmware on these phones is with FAR. However as FAR doesn't support the new GDFS on these phones, the only option is to put up with it. Later editions of the firmware increase the volume SLIGHTLY. Nothing more.

If the volume is unacceptable (I use mine daily in work and have it on 1 bar as that is loud enough, and when out and about mountain biking I have it cranked up to about 3/4 full which is again fine) then there may be a problem. Hence the repair or replace theory...

Just managed to get the latest firmware from SEUS, mine seems noticably louder, the MegaBass function seems a bit more potent too

or maybe it's cos i cleaned out my ears yesterday...?

And to think I'm supposed to be a moderator and it didn't occur to me till now that if there is a fault with the handset, maybe, and I'm going out on a limb here, maybe you should have it repaired or dare I suggest it, replaced! *thud* que gasps and fainting women.

I have the same problem. Even at max level, the volume through the earpiece of the handset is very low, especially when there is a lot of ambient noise. I think it's a fault as I've seen somewhere else (can't remember where, sorry) that the earpiece volume is too low. This is during a normal phone conversation, not listening to music.

Are you sure you have turned up the volume of the phone while IN a call? Otherwise it's just the music level you increase. Finally, if you turn off the phone the vol levels revert to 3 bars.

Yep, when in a call the volume is at its max setting. I really have to jam the phone to my ear and stick my finger in the other ear to hear anyone on the other end. Will a master reset (settings) help do you think or will I lose data?

A master reset? I KNOW you will lose data. Settings reset, no data loss. Don't think it will increase the earpiece volume though.

How is it with the earphones in? Or on speakerphone?

I found on another forum that going into the service menu (>*<<*<*>) and changing the earpiece volume helps. I've changed this, so just waiting to make a call to see what happens. I have also done a master reset (settings only) to see if that helps also.

PS - the service menu description: <> means left and right arrows.

This is the forum where I found the potential solution: http://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php?threadid=909108
