    Question Ringtone volume issue...did I dream this?

    Advertisement



    OK, when I was researching the 8830, I had read many post on here about the volume on the ring-tone issue. I could have sworn that I saw a post that had a link to a patch on Rim's site for this fix. I also could have sworn I went clicked this link and saw it on their site.
    I now have the phone but can not find this post or a patch on Rim's site. Did I dream this all up?
    Is the really only fix at this point to use third party software to boost the volume on the MP3 itself?
    I apologize because I know there are already many post on this but man, I must be loosing my mind.

    what O.S. are you running? I found when I went to O.S. 4.4.176 it helped with a louder volume.

    Re: Ringtone volume issue...did I dream this?

    Before anything I would recommend:

    1. clicking on your speaker icon
    2. scrolling down to advanced options and clicking on that
    3. physically checking volume levels on all options in and out of holster. That may be the issue right there.

    I noticed when I first got my 8830 it just didn't seem really loud enough but once I changed the options in the advanced options section of my ringtone it made a difference. In addition some ringtones are louder than others as well. I really like the Fur Elise option but its not loud for me. I have to use the cool runnings option so I can hear it a lot better. Something to maybe think about....

    You can do the update but it still won't be as loud as a normal phone. The ringers will play loud in the media player, but half of the volume when used as a ringer.

    How frustrating.......AND just doesn't make any sense.......obviously the phone is capable of playing at the higher levels (in the media player), but then knocked down to nothing in the ringer section. Has anyone heard if RIM is thinking about some kind of fix?....my 8830 is such an awesome phone otherwise!

    I'm going to exchange mine for the red one on Friday. Maybe the red 8830 will not have that issue.

    It's funny because I was at a company function in which a rep from RIM was there. We started chatting and I mentioned the issue. I played the ringtones (stock and custom) for him, and even a buddy of mine did and he was totally dumbfounded and claimed to never hear about this issue. I know all 8830's i've had my hands on all have a low volume for the ringer. Even an internal tech support rep I spoke to over the phone about a different issue had mentioned she gets the complaint from others all the time. I'm hoping that there is a fix in the next software release.
