Thanks for the tip but it requires you to root your phone,which I am not doing.
Also we shouldn't need to root our phones or use an app, Motorola / Verizon should (and probably will) release an OTA update soon.

Again, thanks for the tip and good find!

Which version are u using? And which setting are u using for the speaker.

I used this on my Droid. I tried this the other day, but I didnt know which settings to use for the external speaker.

And I agree one shouldnt have to do this for a louder speaker. I think ppl have to complain or see if its a bad phone. It could just need a software fix, if thats even possible.

This really needs to be fixed OTA. Hopefully a good app for this will be released. The external speaker is so mediocre.

I completely agree. The low volume needs to be corrected by Motorola really soon. The quality of my sound is great, but I just can't hardly hear the phone notifications or the phone ringing when it is in my pocket.

Will the volume be addressed on Aug 6th when 2.2 is supposed to come out?

I'm sure lots of folk would hope so, but I'm beginning to believe it is just the rather smallish slit where the volume comes out that is the biggest problem. The Droid sound slit ran all the way across the bottom of the battery cover.

I hope this doesn't mean I'll have to take a Dremel to the phone to make my own bigger speaker.
