Question about RIM BlackBerry Bold 9000 Smartphone
Very recently i discovered that my bold has a very low ring volume and alert tones, hardly audible. I tried to fix it by editing the profile and putting the volume ot high..but didnt work. I also used to the options menu in the phone options and put the volume level to 100% and didnt work either.
Can some one help me to get my old settings and speaker volume back on my bold please?
I had the same problem. My ring was getting lower everyday. I've done my fair share of dropping the phone.
So, I read that other people were having the issue.
One genius, told us to take off the back plate, and just where the camera is, there is a greyish plastic plate riveted down with plastic knobs. You press on either side quite hard. If you can do this while the phone is ringing, you will hear the volume jump up and down. When it sounds just right, leave it alone, put back on the plate.
If it happens again, repeat.
You may need to buy the speaker plate after a while. It's only 10 bucks on cnn.cn

Best way to fix this problem is by removing the black plate from the back...Then take a small pin, blade or needle and pull out the pins of the speaker a bit...That makes it get a more solid contact with the connections on the main board...After screw the back plate back on very very tightly an bang your booming again...Did this on about 8 Bold 9000 and they work perfectly after that...Don't worry about buying a new speaker or back plate, this works permanently and just fine...
I run a cell phone repair shop and I hate it when technicians charge people so much money to fix something so simple...

If you scroll up and to the left on the home screen to the icon that kind of resembles this >> [o)))]
Once highlighted, press the ball in and you'll see all of the different profiles. At the bottom it says "advanced". By selecting this option, you can edit all profiles.
Hope this helps :)

Yeah my bb bold started doing the same thing. the volume toggle on the top right just plain stopped working. So I found that by squeezing the screen just beside it (or pinching it with my fingers) caused it to work .. I presume however it is a temporary fix as surely it will **** out on me again soon. Worth a try if you are really annoyed with it.

Solutions 2 and 3 are the easiest, hardly any tools required. You can also just bang it a bit or blow into it to get rid of any dust or sand etc. Solution #1 probably the most technically correct

I wouldn't have believed it if i didn't try it and it it worked. i've been servicing my companies Bold 9000's for about a year now, and have typically warrantied back the phones for the "volume dying" issue. I wouldn't say this a manufacturing defect, but more a huge design flaw.
