    Increase Volume on Ringer....

    Advertisement



    I have seen many posts on here about increasing the ringtone volume for the Pearl. Many of these discuss drilling holes into the battery cover on the back of the phone. It looks like the speaker of this model is covered by the cover.
    I was wondering the following:
    1) Does anyone have any pictures of the holes they have drilled?

    2) How hard was it to drill these holes? Did the plastic shatter at all? Or was it an easy hole to make?

    Thanks

    Just take and drill holes on the back cover. It's very easy. All you need is a piece of wood {something to stabilize the cover} a drill with a small bit. Place the cover on the wood piece, take a sharpie and make about 6 marks on where u want to drill. {Some people have even made neat patterns to make it not look so bad}.

    Hold the drill straight up and down on the back cover and drill very slowly, once the bit is a little bit in the plastic you can drill faster. Only takes a couple secs to get through the cover. Easy Peasy!! I was nervous to do this but after the first 2 holes drilled, I was fine doing the rest. Just remember to start out slow. It makes a huge difference and you save yourself a little money.
