How do I turn UP the volume on iPhone?

I want to turn up the volume of the speaker that I hear phone calls through.

I already have the ringer volume and the iPod volume pinned to the max. Is there a separate adjustment somewhere that I am missing to also adjust the volume of the ear speaker for phone calls?

And yes, I AM somewhat deaf, but my family who aren't actually deaf (but do fake it sometimes) tell me that my phone speaker volume is low.

Do you have a 2G or 3G iphone? This is a known problem for 2G iphones but supposedly fixed in the 3G version. I have a 2G and I've noticed this problem as well. It really depends on the ringtone as well though. I've added some custom ringtones which are much better. Or, here's a youtube video that shows a "fix" to make the speaker louder...although it looks a bit dodgy:

To turn up the volume of the earpiece, you must turn up the volume using the volume buttons WHILE you are on a call.

Hi all,
Yes, I've tried increasing the volume while I am on a call. It's a 3G phone.

SOUNDS like I should take it in for a visit at the Mac store and see what they say.

This is a really weird question, I am NOT trying to be insulting, but, did you leave the plastic screen protector on the iPhone that it shipped with?

Hahaha! Nope, I removed it. Good question though - that MIGHT cause problems if I hadn't.
