Thanks Monkeyboy. I would like to be clear on what you are saying. When you speak of not being able to control the volume at the lowest levels, are you talking about ringing volume, tones, etc. OR are you talking about the volume in your ear while on a call with the phone to your ear? It is the volume in the ear that I am most concerned about. I have sensitive ear drums and I need to be able to turn down volume in the earpiece to nearly a whisper while on calls.
