    Hey Guys,
    Been using 10.3 and 10.3.1 OS versions since the day one of getting my Q10, back in mid-august. Was using Z10 before that. Everything seemed perfectly fit except for occasional bugs, as usual.

    And one fine day, I went ahead and auto-loaded 10.2.1 on the phone and damn the notification volume is so much louder in that branch of OS. Ever since, I've been checking this out on all the BlackBerry10 devices I could get my hands on.

    So far, only Q10 has this issue. The notifications volume is at least 30-40% lower on 10.3/10.3.1 compared to 10.2.1 and now I've started to feel that to be a deciding factor for my OS.

    Though 10.3.1 is uber cool, I keep going back to 10.2.1 because of the volume. I keep travelling a lot and keeping the phone on vibrate is not something I prefer.

    Is there any 10.3/10.3.1 version that addresses this issue?

    Also, people in the beta program, have you got a chance to test this and report to BlackBerry? Just asking, do give a hint if you have reported. I know there's an NDA, but if you had reported, it'd give a few of us some peace of mind.

    That doesn't mean the phone is bricked. It's a bug. Hopefully, official release would fix it.

    I hope it will be louder in the final release. I put it always in the pouch and couldn't hear the ring even if it's already at its loudest.

    I was even thinking of drilling holes at the bottom of the pouch so I could hear the sound.

    Maybe the maker should consider putting some holes at the bottom of the pouch.
