    Hi folks. Anyone know a way I can boost the volume on my AT&T-branded Lumia 900? Namely, the volume level it uses with bluetooth/headset. The volume is WAY too low, even with the phone and headset set to maximum, for me to hear. I know it's not a headset problem, as I can hear my work-supplied iPhone perfectly through the same headset.

    Problem is, I hate my iPhone, and would much rather use my 900 for everything, so if anyone can help, I would appreciate it.

    Thanks!

    BUMP!!

    I feel your pain, I cant stand how low the volume is. Has anyone see an app or anything that increases the volume on the Lumia 900?

    I have ESPN radio, and just trying to listen is HORRIBLE...I need to be in a quiet room or with noise cancelling headphones to make sure I heard enough. :@

    Same here, I noticed on my bluetooth hands free in the car I need to crank the volume and even then it's still kinda low, but using the handset itself is fine.

    I have the same problem. Audio volume over Bluetooth is too low, even at the highest settings. I'm hoping there's a solution, but I can't seem to find one.

    with Tango (2175.2301.8779.12223) sound is a bit louder than HTC HD7 at same setting (e.g., volume at 15). Volume at 2 is audible but listenable in a very quiet room. Volume above 23-24 is uncomfortably loud.

    FWIW as described in other threads, the volume rocker also now functions correctly 100% of the time while the phone is in sleep mode (just like my 1st gen HD7).

    Cheers

    I have had my 900 for a few days now. I too do not like the fact that the volume seems low. Either with or without my bluetooth, it is hard to hear the person on the other end unless I am in a quiet environment.:@

    Oh, it's amazing when I hit the 20's.

    I'm just referring to the fact that it's as loud in the 20's with my earbuds as the speakers for the phone are at lower than 5.

    I don't get the volume issue on the Lumia 900. At 01/30 it is unusually loud, but the jump from 01/30 to 05/30 isn't too significant.

    The one thing that drives me nuts is that I can't use this with AUX in my car all that well. I can't get the right mix of volume between both devices.
