Has anyone else noticed that a majority of ring tones are quiet even with the vol all the way up? Is there a way to get it louder?
Yes, many people have this problem. The only way to get Verizon and Motorola to fix the problem is to call Verizon and Motorola tech support to document the problem, to try their suggestions, and to report to them whether your low volume/bad speaker problem persists on your Droid X. I give detailed but simple instructions on how to do this in link (5) below, but also see the info in link (4) below.
