    I am a new iPhone 3G owner and am very pleased. I do not hear as well as the average human so I keep my phone on vibrate most of the time. Although please with the volume of the phone when I am talking, I do have a couple of questions.

    Is anyone aware of a way to increase the ringer volume of the iPhone? A bluetooth headset was suggested, but that is not practical for me.

    Is anyone aware of an external ringer product available? When I am at home, the phone is sometimes not in my pocket, so what I would like to have is a dock that would both charge the phone and provide a louder external ringer which I could hear from another room. If I had this, I would get rid of my old home phone.

    If these products are not available, is there a proper avenue I might take to suggest someone look into this type of device as something new for the future.

    Thanks so much for any suggest you all may have! ~Ray

    Nearly all speaker systems that connect to the dock will play ringing sounds through the speakers.

    You might want to look at Dock-n-talk with bluetooth adapter from PhoneLabs

    Basically, it would hook regular land line phones up to your iPhone via bluetooth. That way if you have phones all over your house, it'll ring those and you can pick them up to answer as well.

    Maybe overkill, but I thought I'd mention it. I use it to use regular phones around my condo without payign for a landline.
