    I swear my speakerphone has gotten much much lower in volume lately and I can't do anything to turn it up. I can play media on the speakerphone and it's loud but even if I turn the volume up all the way during a call it's much quieter, anyone else experience this? It seems like it used to be very loud on speakerphone during a call and now it's very quiet.

    check for a jam in the speaker, have it looked at. or just test it on playing music or something

    Do you use the speakerphone alot? It might sound stupid but ...Maybe your ears got used to the speakerphone volume. It happens.

    power cycle the phone, that should solve it. Others have had similar issues, not sure why.

    yep, i heard pulling the battery while on fixes the issue, sometimes forever. but i heard that 2.0.1 update fixed it too. cause i haven't had it since.

    I have 2.01, so that's not the fix. the speakerphone plays at LOUD volume with music, just not for the phone, so I'll pull the battery to test that out.

    i've found certain apps do this. for example, sipdroid seems to dramatically lower the speaker volume every time i use it (grr).

    power cycling just means turning the phone off and then back on again. that's my solution, too.
