    is any1 else finding that the speakerphone on the iphone is not loud enough?
    would it kill them to make it so that the volume could be louder? im not understanding it..

    i have to basically be in a silent room with the volume at 100% to hear the other person. (other friends have the same problem)

    also i find it weird that if i am on speaker phone the firstr dial tone when calling the other person is loud but it dims down after the first dial tone what gives?

    isnt there some kind of update or donwload we can do to make the speakerphone louder? :(

    I agree that it could be louder, but I'm not going to switch to an HTC Touch because of it.

    Mine sounds just fine. Maybe everyone I talk to, talks really loudly. :p

    My 3G had the same kind of issue, until OS 3.0 came out. It's MUCH louder now. You might try restoring; you never know.

    I have always thought the volume was perfectly adequate from the speakers!

    They are not meant to provide music to fill a room

    my question for you is , are u talking to these ppl on speaker phone like in a silent room?
    and do u have it on 100%?

    under those circumstances mine sounds "fine" as well

    It is more of a "in a room, on a table" type of speakerphone, than "in a running car, with other people talking" type of speakerphone.

    It won't power a party ... but I think it's generally pretty OK.
