I am sure that Apple will be getting around to fixing the volume as well as the lack of volume in ring tones. When I am outside with the iPhone in my pocket...I find it difficult at times to hear the iPhone when it rings.
I am still using the default ringtone...which is the loudest ringtone that is currently a choice in the settings section?
The loudest ring tone is the 'old phone'. That is the one that I am using and according to many posts that I have read that particular ring tone is the loudest. Even though it's the loudest ring tone I don't hear my phone unless I'm in a quiet environment. I'm not happy with volume of ring tones.
I also use "Old Phone" and it works quite well for me. I listened to the others and none seemed as loud, but the real reason is that I use to have a Razor and that is what I used with it (I believe it was called "Matrix Phone" on the Razor), so I am use to it.
Old Phone for sure! I've always hated all the "flashy" ring tones on phones today. Most phones have a variant on the Old Phone ringer which is always my first choice. I do have to admit tho choosing it this time was more about the volume than anything else.
