First thing, in your Blackberry's Bluetooth Devices list, find the IHF1000, then go to the Properties for this device. There should be a listing for Echo Cancellation - the choices are Automatic, On or Off. Set this to OFF. The IHF1000 has its own internal noise and echo cancellation - when connected the the IHF1000, your phone's noise and echo canceller should be turned off. This setting change will make sure of that.
Next, how and where is your microphone positioned? If you could post a link to an image I could view of how it is mounted, I can guide you further. Use tinypic<dot>com to post the image, or similar. Ideally, the IHF1000's microphone should be placed on the overhead console or domelight assemmly towards the front of the vehicle. It should be on the side of the console closest to the driver, and aimed at the driver. The cable comes out of the back of the microphone, so as a guide, the cable exit should be on the side of the microphone opposite of the driver.

When using the IHF1000 with your Blackberry Curve, I recommend to go into the device properties for the IHF1000 in the phone's Bluetooth devices listing. Under that, there should be a phone setting to turn Echo Canceller: On, Off, or Automatic. By default, it is Automatic. For this phone with the IHF1000, I would set it to Off. This has solved audio quality problems for a number of people.
Note: this may or may not directly address the low uplink audio level you are experiencing, but it does seem to help with general call audio quality when connected to the IHF1000.
Here is a link that will direct you through the entire process. You will need to select the Blackberry 8830 as your phone, but the instructions should still be the same. Let me know if you need further, and I can give you more.
Just_Bobz is correct and incorrect at the same time... Not all blackberry curves are set up the same nor do they all have the same "theme" (layout) For instance the T-mobile Blackberry Curve (8120) has a different theme and therefore the sound option is not in the upper right hand corner like the Alltel Blackberry Curve (8330) default theme. chrisalexisx My suggestion is to find the volume control icon on your curve (or the volume themes as I like to call them). When you click on the speaker icon you will have the options for the different volume themes such as Loud, Vibrate, Quiet, Normal, Phone Only, and Off. Click on whichever theme you will be using on a regular basis to activate it. ** Another area where Just_Bobz is incorrect… just because you have put the volume theme on Loud does NOT mean that the phone is on its loudest possible sound setting!! If you go back into the volume themes, all the way at the bottom there is an Advanced option.. If you click on Advanced, highlight which ever theme says active next to it and click your trackball to open it ... you will then have the option to change the option for any and all alerts on the phone (ie email, phone, mms, sms, bbm. ect.) Under each of the different options there is ANOTHER sound option for low, medium, high, ect.(and there is an in and out of holster setting SOO.. Just because your volume theme is set to Loud.. does not mean that the phone is truly set to loud!!
