    Spoke with Verizon Tech Support

    I spoke with Verizon Tech Support earlier and they stated that this is a known issue. It is currently being "reviewed" to figure out a fix and will be sent out in the "2nd Maintenance Release" for Droid X.

    They did not know when the 2nd Maintenance Release would be issued and did not know any additional details for a fix to the problem.

    At least they are looking into.

    Verizon is going to tell you anything to shut you up.

    Wow...here I am clowning on the iPhone 4 with the whole antenna problem. I was so eager to get my Droid X, which is an upgrade from my original Droid....but damn! this is a piece of crap! Well...not that bad. There are some cool features, but there are just too many annoyances with this phone.

    1. The speaker is absolutely horrible. No..it's not slightly low...it's horribly low. I used to have to lower my GPS navigation volume on the original Droid because it was so loud. With the Droid X, the volume is max and I could barely make out what it was saying. I had to constantly look at the screen while driving.

    2. While the original Droid is fully charged within an hour, the The Droid X can only go up by 20%. I think we all know the problem with plugging this device to a car charger while navigation is on.

    3. I really don't like the warm feeling in my pant through the contact of the phone after 10-15 minutes of web browsing.

    I love everything Android...and really like all the new features of the Droid X. However, these 3 flaws alone are enough to warrant my wait for the next Android device. This is going back to Verizon for sure. Hope the Droid 2 isn't going to be like this.

    The low speaker volume is my only complaint with my X really. Any other minor gripes I have I am sure can and will be fixed in an update. For example no emoticons and just showing the symbols instead. Not that big a deal and can even be fixed by downloading an app. A lot of the other complaints I read about all seam like they can easily be fixed with an update or by an app. Now whether moto actually does fix things through an update is a different story. My X charges very fast when plugged into a wall outlet but with my car charger it takes an hour just to go up 10-15% but I thought it was the 3rd party charger I was using.

    Being such a new phone and this new interface that isn't supposed to be motoblur I don't see some bugs as that huge an issue. I really feel(and hope) that when Froyo is release and with an update or 2 the X really could be the best Android phone out there for awhile. Really sad they left out a front facing camera it really the only feature missing(but not that big a deal to me anyway).

    Funny thing about the speaker is that it doesn't sound stressed at all. The last 3 notches in the volume doesn't continue to turn up the volume. It is a little low on speakerphone calls but sometimes ridiculously loud on some games and apps. This all would tell me it is a software limitation and not a hardware one. Let's just hope that it can and will be fixed in an update.

    I haven't been having any speaker problems like everyone else has. The sound on my X is loud and clear. Just a few minutes ago, I was watching a vid on YouTube, and I couldn't hear anything. Check my volume and it was crank all the way up. All of a sudden I get the sound bug on my X. I shut it down, and reboot. Now my volume works just fine. Could this be the beginning of my sound going out?

    I truly believe motorola decided ear buds is the new listening output for the x....and increasing the volume with software will only result in speaker distortion.

    Did you try putting the speaker next to your ear? It may be that the speaker was working (not properly of course) but the volume was extremely low so you could not hear it unless you placed the speaker on your ear. In the 10 days I have had the X, three times the speaker volume has gone so low that I could only hear it by placing the speaker up to my ear. When holding it in my hand I heard no sound at all. The volume settings were all at max.

    The first time it happened I used the YouTube app to watch a video and could only hear it by putting the speaker to my ear. (I tried several videos in case the problem was poor audio in the video.) I connected headphones to see if the headphone volume was normal. It was. When I pulled the headphones out of the jack, the speaker returned to normal volume.

    It may just be coincidence that you too were using Youtube. The other two times the problem has occurred for me, I am not sure what sequence of events triggered it. In both cases, rebooting restored the speaker volume to normal.

    I've had my X for almost a week, and the earpiece speaker is much better than on the Incredible, which I was forced to return because it was so garbled. But I am missing incoming calls due to the low volume on the external (ringer) speaker. Two different issues; sometimes it 's hard to know which one posters are referring to. Oddly, the notification sound for messages is much louder, and I usually catch that one. I sure hope it can be fixed with software update as some contributors seem to think.

    Volume

    I received my Droid X on Thursday and I think the sound is fine. I don't see a significant difference in volume between the 3 different versions of the Droids I currently own. (Droid, Incredible, Droid X)

    And my Droid X is less than half the volume of my old Droid. There is no comparison between the two as far as external volume.
