When using the speakerphone, it is not loud enough to really hear. Also, the ringtones are not loud enough. Is it my hearing, or is this a problem with the phone. And yes, the volume is on high.

    I had the same problem until I realised it was the way I was holding it!!! If my finger so much as covers the speaker (which it occasionally does) then it blocks out the sound.

    It's taking me some time to adapt the way I hold my iPhone, as I usually tend to balance it on my small finger while using my other fingers and thumbs to clasp it. As a result, my little finger inevitably blocks the speaker, and therefore the sound.

    Failing that, you probably have a faulty speaker and I would take your phone back for a replacement.

    I've had the phone since the day they came out. I am aware of where the speaker is and watch that closely. It's just not loud enough. Any others having problems like this?

    This problem is well documented. Do a search on this forum and you see no end to the complaints of low earpiece, ringer and speaker volumes. Its not your phone Its not you its the iPhone.

    I had the same problem, but when I updated to 1.1.2 it dramatically changed the situation, with the sound now very loud, both from the speakerphone and the handset.
