How can you set the in-call volume to be higher for Android 2.2, please? In the Settings options there's only these options:

Incoming Call Volume (which I presume is the ringer volume) Media Volume System Volume (which would probably increase the in-call volume, but all the others as well) Notification Volume

Thank you.

From searching android forums I see that some people had screen protectors covering the speaker. Could this be your issue?

I also saw reference to the Quick Settings app which has a Voice Call Volume setting. Hopefully you can set that to its highest setting and your calls will at least be set to the loudest setting.

    Thanks, Gary. There's no screen protector. I gave forums a search as well before posting only to see some having sound too low and other having it too high... I'll give that app you're mentioning a look and come back. Thank you.

  • Hey. It's a really useful application, however it does what the side volume keys do. This probably means I must raise the Master level to get better spearker volume, which is something I would have wanted to avoid.

During a call press the volume UP (+) button. You're bound by what levels the manufacturer allows for in the phone & any other law needed to be met within your country.

If you're technically inclined,

Flash your phone with a kernel that uses Pershoot audio booster (usually OC/UV)

    Thanks, Sparx. I had already tried the side volume keys, I'm not that 'amateurish', although the question does look like that at first glance.
