    This is the Passport section. We are talking about the official update. So I don't see were you going.

    @OP. Same here. I had to put notification bar to the max. Even the virtual keyboard is low. You hear nearly nothing. Overall a great update. But the volume??? I see that I will miss many calls outside. This, they blew it.

    This is a real bummer here.

    Before, the sound was perfectly. Has anyone of you gents tried the call quality???

    I once had this issue on my Z30 when it came out! You couldn't hear your partner very well.

    Hope they fix it!

    I've just posted a thread about this, the sound sounds like it's on half rather than full! I can hardly hear them going off!

    Mine can't stop vibrating in addition to the low sound. There's no option to separate vibrate from ring also. I'm stumped!!

    Will check that thread out for sure. I am asking, why is Blackberry doing this ffs? Have our ears improved all of a sudden?

    Call quality is great, no issues there, thank god for that...
    Thank you fine sir. But still. I need notification sounds! Thats important! Can't afford to miss calls or messages.

    Wow. Is it that extreme? I guess I will also miss many calls outside.

    I can hardly hear my notifications for SMS, mail and Whatsup. Can't believe how on earth they did that.

    Maybe there is a way to fix the sound problem.

    I think that I've to locate and search the BAR files of the OS 10.3.0.908 on the internet some where.

    After that, I'll use Sachesi to sideload a single BAR file for the sound volume only.

    Then reboot or restart the BlackBerry 10 smartphone.

    Then test the sound volume of music of course.

    Maybe that will do the trick.

    Sachesi? Is that a cheese brand? Sorry, I am not into leaking or hacking.

    I just received several whatsup messages. I am very angry because the sound is very low, although the bar is set on maximum. Why on earth? Why? I missed all the messages.

    Classic has the same problem. In the beginning I thought it is due to the hardware but since moving my PP to 10.3.1 I know it is the OS.

    All sounds are coming with reduced volume. Also the keyboard clicks. Annoying.

    Tried everything.

    Sound is lowered to the half.

    Hey BlackBerry. Please do us a favor. Next update take the sound completely away. Just give us led and vibration. Why sound right?

    Lol. I missed two calls already and all whatsapp notification. Why did I upgrade? 10.3.0. was just perfect.

    I don't have this issue. Are you sure everything is alright with your sound profile settings? Notifications, Main Volume, Apps...

    One thing I have noticed though, I can't switch between silent and normal with the volume shift keys anymore :-(

    You could switch between silent and normal using the vol keys?

    Yep, that's one of the first things I noticed when I received the botched AT&T mistake of an update a while back.

    All sound notifications noticeably decreased. I even think the sound when placing someone on speakerphone also decreased.

    I was hoping this recent and legit update would solve that issue. Unfortunately, I heard that even with this recent update, that some people are still having the flickering problem :S.

    Yes thankfully it's gone now. Very annoying to accidentally come out of silent when putting the phone in pocket
