Just a little help for a little help forpeople having speaker volume issues
Having had a definitive SPEAKERPHONE low volume problem a week or so after buying the iphone, I discovered that the 23 tiny SPEAKER HOLES at the bottom left of the phoned were PLUGGED UP!
I very carefully cleaned them out with a fine Pin, being careful not to put the pin in too far and puncture the internal speaker within. I repeat - do this at your own risk - carefully!!!
Well, for me, IT WORKED and immediately the volume was significantly increased. I now clean those holes about once a week as I suspect that normal grime from my hand is either occluding the holes or the moisture picked up from my palm is causing dust or debris to get stuck in them.
Let me know if anyone else has success with this. Dare I say it might be an Apple design defect? Kind of kidding because I love Apple stuff, but as much as I love the phone, I do find the volume issues disappointing.
if you open one hole sound should increase by 1/23 X 100 = 4% not more and this is if sound is bradcasting isotropic and since it is at the lover left corner and sound there should be a bit weaker I would say you should have abot 3% increase in sound level. if you have significant increase there should be some other things involved rather than cleaning the dirt.
