    Anyone else think the volume on this device is low? The exhibit 2 I had was quite a bit louder.

    Is there a setting I could be missing or an app that could help? I tried one volume booster app and it ended up being crap ware.

    Please help. I have the Optimus L9 and really like it except that I bought it to monitor a website that posts substitute teaching jobs. When a new job is posted my computer alerts me with a "bong". I pull up the same website on my phone and when a new job is added I don't hear a thing. I added SpeakerBoost hoping that was the answer but it is still silent. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    If it makes no noise at all I doubt it's what I was talking about.

    Does anything make a sound?

    It isn't what you were talking about but I was hoping someone with this phone might be able to help. When I run YouTube I get sound. I've tried a few other browsers (Opera, UC Browser, Firefox) but none seem to make a difference.

    Yep same problem here. I have an expensive pair or headphones that should be booming but with the l9 the volume output is so low it's ridiculous. Only gripe with the phone gonna try the app recommended but skeptical

    the l9 has a decent audio chip
    i use "Volume+" and get great results.
    the paid version gets pretty loud. it has bass boost and eq as well

    I know it's off topic but I have a metro l9 as well and I have yet to find any successful root methods. How did you do it?
