Listeners say when I'm speaking to them on phone, it's too LOUD
When I'm using my phone, the person having the conversation with me says my voice is extremely LOUD. They actually hold the receiver away from their ear. However, their voice is not extremely loud as I'm listening to them.
Using the user guide, I've adjusted my volume to the lowest setting, and they say it's still too loud.
FYI; I use a Plantronics hands-free headset with this phone.

Are you or the other person using the speaker phone function? Does this happen during conference (3 way) calling? If you're using the speaker phone function, especially during a conference call, you're likely to hear an echo. I've had this very same issue with a different phone and the only solution I found was not to use speaker phone.
Try and reset the phone to the default factory settings and also do a reset with the battery taken out. If this wont solve check using a hand-free unit ,if the voice is heard well then it is possible that the microphone is defective.
However since your phone is only a month old i would recommend that you claim for warranty and free service replacement. contact Nokia care.
Dynamike Gain Control varies the microphone sensitivity. When set fully clockwise, it is very sensitive - and will be able to "hear" background noises easily. This position also can cause your voice to be distorted or garbled when approaching maximum under the right conditions as well as causing "bleed over" to adjacent channels. When set to minimum, you will need to speak clearly and directly into the microphone to be heard. Most people find a setting somewhere in the middle works best.
You should adjust the level to suit those that are listening to you by asking them if it sounds OK. This prevents them from having to turn their volume down whenever you speak. In a "one-to-one" conversation it is not as noticeable. The trouble comes when 3 or more are conversing. The third person's audio may be low or normal - and the listeners set their radio's volume so that they can hear that person easily. Then you transmit with booming mic audio and everyone scrambles to turn down the volume to save their ears / speakers. This can be very frustrating for the others having to constantly adjust the radio volume whenever you speak.
I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply - thanks.
Olympus makes a device that allows you to record telephone conversations without having to hook up anything to the actual telephone. It is called a TP-7. It connects one end to the voice recorder in the mic jack and the other end is an ear bud microphone so that you are able to record the person who you are speaking to on the telephone so that the voice recorder captures both sides of the conversation.
go to emporium.olympus.com click on the link for voice recorders select your voice recorder and then look for the TP-7.
Hold the voice record button while speaking. It will beep every so
often to warn the other person recording is in progress. Beep is there
because of US laws, but there is no known way to turn it off where
those laws do not apply.
We bought this phone for a home business and personal line. We were happy to get rid of the seperate answering machine and thought it was great to have so many features for a reasonable price. About a week later we started to notice a recurring clicking sound that accompanied our conversations, this sound is also heard by the person you are speaking to. I decided to call RCA and see if I had a defective phone... i was informed that this was "normal" for this phone and that there is nothing they can do for me. I plan to return this phone and the additional handsets I bought immediately. Do not buy this phone unless you want to spend your days trying to figure out the morse code clicking that persist through all your calls.
