    I updated to 3.0 last night on my 3G, all went well, but the only thing that won't work is Voice Memos...

    The VU meter doesn't pick up any input even when shouting into it (but the VU does pulse when the on-screen mic is tapped), and then no sound is played back after I finish recording. I've tried loads of times, force-quitting the app, soft reset etc., and it still won't work.

    Can anyone help?

    I am having the same problem on my 1st Gen iPhone. The recording needle stays on -20 with very little sensitivity. Recorded voice playback volume is very low. I reported this problem on Apple's web site at www.apple.com/feedback. You should also report this problem.

    Same Hear ;) 3Gs

    I've got the same problem. The VU meter barely moves. Playback is pretty low, and yes I had the speaker on. In comparison playback on music is loud compared to what you can get back with a voice memo.

    I know it is called Voice Memo. Are we supposed to have it up to our face like we are using the phone while recording? If so this isn't going to help if you want to record a lecture or a meeting.

    Are there external microphones that can be added. Are there any sensitivity adjustments buried in settings?

    Same deal on my kid's 2G.

    Well, I upgraded to a 3GS, and the voice memo is fine on that (volume registers on the vu meter when talking normally, and it records fine). It's a bit quiet, but acceptable. Looks like there was something wrong with my old iPhone and the new software, perhaps a reinstall/restore would cure it?
