    So the volume on all sounds works fine, as does my speaker.
    Here is my problem, when I make calls to people, it really is hard to hear them, even with the volume turned up all the way.

    Has anybody else had this problem and do you know a solution?

    Sorry, I have not. In fact, the call quality is one reason I purchased an iPhone.

    Very 1s thing to do is to take off the protective plastic film .

    otherwise we need to get used to the adjustment of hte speaker.

    Is this a hearing impaired Iphone, Lol.

    I agree with your observation. The call voice "should" be louder, as is everything else. It's good enough for me at the max volume setting, but I don't understand why it's not as loud (or seems that way) -- on the speaker option -- as those lame music ringtones we hear all over town.

    I wonder if the ottobox defender case is the problem, and if any other case would not have this be an issue.
    I can barely hear with it.

    If you remove the case does the sound quality improve? I do not use a case so I'm not able to advise.
