    I agree. I was talking to my mother in the other room (test) and I was talking normally and she said I needed to speak up.

    Her voice was perfectly fine though.

    Affirmative. I have my call volume at max and still isn't louder than my old BB Storm at 70%

    Do you guys think this can be fixed with software? If this is the way it is all the time, I may seriously consider returning the phone and waiting it out for the Shadow....

    But when you put it on 100% volume, the voices begin to shrill a little bit on the C/S words.

    only talked to two people and asked them about the call quality

    first said sounds like a landline (good)

    the second said good

    *shrug* i was kinda worried about that myself, but so far everything has been brilliant. I got an echo once but im not sure who's fault that was. She was on At&T and those phones usually sound like you're underwater.

    Coming from the blackberry tour, it is really loud and clear sounding. No tin sounds here. But it is a phone, not a 9 thousand dollar theater system.

    Compared to my Tour, the call quality isn't that great. I don't think its just your Unit gt33
    HTC phones aren't known to be good in this department - We all have 30 days to return =]

    I haven't noticed any issues with the call quality. I've only made a few calls though but so far all if then have been good to very good.

    I think its us past blackberry users who are noticing the sound/call low volume quality, those coming from a pre or whatever on the other hand shouldn't notice.

    no no, you guys arent understanding: the ppl on the other end CAN HEAR us, the thing is, the quality WE HEAR ON THE EVO IS CRAP; that is, it is crackly when we turn it up. Yes, indeed it is MUCH WORSE when u have the plastic protector on it, but still a lil disapointed bc it still craks with the s's as someone pointed out above. right guys? are some of you wit' me?
