    Hi everyone,

    i noticed that when i use ringtones my speaker is not as loud as my friends Curve, even though they are the same size and type.

    I tried all my sound options and still not as loud!!

    Is there a software or some secret menu where ican change sound settings?

    Thanks a lot!

    Hold the phone closer to your ear.

    My guess is maybe the Curve has a better opening for the sound to come out of, The little slot at the top of the Pearl doesnt seem to be the best way to get the sound out. However I always keep my phone in my pocket (not allowed a holster and don't especially like them) and I've never had a problem hearing the BB go off.

    lol, that works. There might just be a difference in the software, like what levels the volume can go on a Curve compared to Pearl

    Alright listen. You don't have a correct view of things here. You state that they are same size and type. Which is untrue. An 8100 IS NOT an 8300. Different size, different hardware. The speaker is probably different, perhaps better, then the speaker in your 8100. If you already have the profile settings for volume set to loud, then there is nothing else you can do.

    I just don't like when people say things that are simply not true. Just because both models are blackberry doesn't mean it has the same exact hardware. Similar maybe, but not the same. If the guy had said they were both 8100s, it would have been different.

    The curve has 2 port holes on the top and the pearl has 1 hole for sound to travel from the speaker. That being said, I'm sure there is some engineering principles being used to get the optimum sound quality based on the number of ports and speaker size. The curve is far superior to the pearl.

    I had the pearl and thought that the speaker was plenty loud. If it bothers you so much, then maybe make your own high-gain ringtone or invest in a curve.

    As far that I know, in the software 4.5 the re no volume boost just like the older software.

    I also having the same problem here.

    Well I guess to getting back the volume boost, we have to downgrade the software. But... how about the applications that only runs on a 4.5 software? hmmm... such a dilemma.

    my advice, just turn on the vibrate.

    Post #13 is the answer. Make your own ringtones, or take the ones you like that are preloaded, and increase the gain in a sound editor. A couple decibels can make a huge difference. I use Audacity for most editing like that, and it will solve your problem.
