    Well, with a week under my belt with this Treo, the one issue I have over and over is a volume issue. Meaning, low volume for notifications and ringers.

    I have just installed WisBar3 again and well, I can raise the volume up through that program, and it become louder, but it won't stick.

    Anyone else having volume issues?

    i totally agree with your misgivings. it's not near as loud as I'd like it to be when it rings. my old katana II was like a banshee when it rang, but i miss calls all the time with this phone. kind of sucks.

    Im in the same boat man.. I wish the ringer and other notifications were louder. Dislike how if set to vibrate / ring it only vibrates twice then its all ringer. I have missed more fone calls with this device in the 1st week than I have with my Mogul all together.

    Hoping we get a better solution to all this. Holding my breathe..

    Say Palm agrees with us. Can a software update over the air fix this or would it need to be a hardware upgrade? Probably hardware so I would hope they gather as many issues they can find from current users and fix all of them.

    I think a software update can fix this.

    I have wisbar 3 installed, and controlling the volume inside wisbar 3 makes my device louder, but it just does not stick.

    If you find a fix to the ringer volume, I need it too. I had a 650 (just upgraded to the 800w). It to was extremely poor with volume levels in both the headset and speaker. I installed "volumecare" and it exceedingly fixed the problem. I mean you could get the volume louder than anyone would need. Therefore, I know a "software" fix will work.

    Problem is, it seems that volumecare is only a Palm OS application. We need a WM software app to do the same thing.

    This and the alarm clock were my biggest gripes with this phone. I'm a pilot, and have weird hours. I need a portable alarm clock (my phone), and a ringer volume loud enough to hear in varying situations. I've fixed the alarm clock issue with "Fizz Alarms." Now I need it to get louder!!!!

    Same here. went to bed the first night of my support coverage at work with the ringer volume one from the bottom like I had done for years on my 700wx. I found in the morning that I missed two calls. Now, I have to have the ringer volume one from the top at night just for it to wake me!? WTH?

    Same issue with my 700p. I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for an update.

    I haven't noticed volume beeing really low on the ringer, but man, on audio players, at least via A2DP, it seems really bad! I've been using my S9 and PocketTunes listening to some streaming internet radio and MP3's and it's almost impossible to hear anything when there's much of ANY background noise. Actually this is pretty much the case with the included headphones as well. I really wish someone finds a reg hack that can increase volume...

    Keep in mind that low ringer volume can be cured with a louder ringer file. If you search for loud ringtones in the ppc-6600 forum at pdaphonehome.com you will find a bunch posted from HobbesIsReal. The 6600 had this problem and these worked well.

    I myself, have no issue with ringer volume. You guys must like it loud!

    I too am not happy with the ringer volumes, and if I didn't have volume problems with the stock 12 bar blues ringer on my 755, then I'd expect not to have volume problems with the same ringer on my 800W. Or at least one would tend to think that way :-)

    I have to put the speaker phone on when I answer call. I may go back to my Motorola Q9c. Treo 800W is not Prime Time. Makes me wonder if will keep the Android phone and forget The Palm OS II "Nova" How can Palm keep bringing a defective phone to market (as long as we continue buy them)

    Your the only one that I have seen that has to do that.

    If you type fast on the q9c you get duplicate characters. No phone is perfect.

    Anyone else think that the low volume, weak vibrating system all stem from Palm using a crappy battery? I see Black helicopters flying over my house. I think one says "Palm" on it.

    Having the same issue especially with pocket tunes. Very low but if you reset the device the volume is back . then later in the day its low again. Reset the device and its back to loud again.
