Default Poor Ringtone Volume

Well i received my N1 today and was gobsmacked how beautiful it is to look at and to hold.
The disappointment soon set in when i set a ringtone. The volume is pretty damn low and i am not sure whether to keep or send the phone back. Its not faulty its just that the speaker on the back in so TINY that i dont think its capable of mathching the output of the Milestone or other nokia phones ive had.

The call quality was ok but on full volume there was a distinct vibration.

Not sure what to do..........Any suggestions as i love the phone on the whole but its phone so no good if you cant hear it, especially when its in your pocket.

Dont know what to tell ya man. Mine is plenty loud for me. I guess I don't worry as much about actually talking to people. Would rather text or get voicemail. Only time I like talking is when I make the call

maybe try flashing/hacking your phone? just been over to xda-developers (i'm assuming that I can mention this on this forum) and there seems to be talk about a fix for this Volume Hack - xda-developers).

means nothing to me at the moment as still awaiting my N1 but may be worth investigating further.

Sees to be more an issue with where they have placed the speaker. If I leave my N1 face down, when it rings, I jump out of my seat. If I leave it face up which most normal people probably would then I miss the call.
Lousy design.
I also have issues with the volume during a call and voice clarity I find that very poor. As for the hands free at full volume its barely audible usable and the distortion caused by the full volume makes inpractical.
Basically its great at everything but its a lousy phone

I have the same issue wiht my Huawei E8336D (same hardware, kernel, chipset and all, just an other body..)

when i set a ringtone of my choice (non standard), the volume is remarcably lower compared to the standard one..

I've even converted the .MP3 file into an .ogg file and moved it to the same map as the standard ones, and selcted the ringtone like this.. (I rooted the phone)

still, volume is lower compared to standard ringtones..

next move is to try a custom rom... If it solves the problem for me I'll let you know..
