    I think it is super low too. I thought for a minute I was getting old and going deaf.

    Coming from a Q9c, not only does it seem just as loud, but it also a better range. It used to be sometimes too loud on my Q9c, and I'd be unable to go any quieter.

    Of course this is totally relative and depends on what phone you had previously.

    I've been getting the same complaints. People say I sound muffled, like I'm in a hole...

    That's because your hand is next to the microphone. I've done it a couple of times. You just have to get used to it.

    I agree. The volume is too low. On every phone I've ever had, I've always had the volume well below full. I have to leave it at full on this phone.

    If you are left handed, try moving it to your right hand. There is a good chance the problem will go away. There's a logical reason, but it can be fun trying to figure it out.

    You know whats annoying when you go to sprint and ask for help! Another part of horrible customer service, it sound fine to them. They ask or say can it just be the connection you are having. I do have to admit there are certain times when it is a bit clear, not often tho.
    They know of the issue but do not admit to the issue, or come up saying that its being worked on, or offer recalls for a defective item! If Sprint can't fix there problems I give the three years they'll either be gone or absorbed by another company like Verizon or at&t. Our bills might be a mess but problems will get fixed!

    I have returned three Pres due to muffled voice - no one can understand what I am saying 75% of the time. Now the third phone has an unresponsive touch screen issue. I had to write to Palm CEO to get a new Pre because I was beyond the 30 days. Sprint only wanted to replace it with a refurbished unit. I declined. Waiting for the new Pre to arrive and I am keeping my fingers crossed. This has been very frustrating.

    I'm on my second phone, still same issue. Its a software issue that palm needs to fix, I think they are dragging their feet fixing the problems with this phone. Unfortunaly I'm stuck with a two year plan, after thats over if its still the same, then iphone here I go. This is a nice phone the best to my opinion Sprint has to offer, but not that nice with issues such as this one with the muffleing sound!

    So has anyone figured out a way to fix the low speaker volume. I'm on Pre number 2 & think I may need to take it back & get number 3 & sacrifice the time & money I spent on the phantom skins & the time I spent waiting around at the Sprint store for the last replacement.

    Went to the Sprint store & it looks like I'm gonna have to get another phone. Ordered more Phantom Skinz. :(

    For me and other that I know.. its not a problem. Speaker is fine. I think that its a user problem...

    Definitely some sort of malfunction. I've tried everything & callers are still barely audible.

    The only times I've had complaints about the volume being too low is when my cheek rests against the microphone. I really wish they'd have pit it on the edge of the phone instead of the face. Moving the bottom of the phone away from my cheek seems to help.
