    Many seem to be complaining about poor/low volumes but mine is irritatingly loud. Any fixes for LOUD earpieces?

    Thanks but it is all the way down and barely tolerable at that position. I know there have been apps mentioned that raise volume but has anyone used one to lower volume? Is it possible to recalibrate what would be considered the lowest volume?

    ya that's crazy, must be a defect or something. Does it get muted when you hit the volume rocker one more time, so it goes from way too loud to nothing? Probably need a new phone, but keep us in the loop for what you find out.

    Actually, does it decrease in sound at all going from max volume to min?

    Rocker all the way down does not mute. Changing volume does actually work...it just gets crazy high.

    Tech support made me do a reset. Didn't work. They are sending me another phone. Sucks. I will soon own a refurb.

    One question...when y'all tap with your finger up and around the camera on the back of the phone, do you hear a rattle? Something may be loose inside of mine.

    If you bought from Verizon store, thats not true. Take it back. Currently on my 4th phone and they have given no hassle about exchanging. Go to a different VZ store if you need to.

    I bought it from an "authorized dealer", not a Verizon Store.
