Possible that the earpiece is defective and needs a change, you can plug in an external headphone to confirm. if the sound is clear then your earpiece needs to be changed.
Open remove and replace with the same type.

NOKIA 3315 sound problem (poor sound quality). Please Help!

Poor sound and quality: If you hear buzzing sounds during conversations or either during sound alerts, bring it to the nearest repair shop for replacment of speakers. However, if you only mean that you had a hard time listening to a call because of low volume, then do the following:
1. during the conversation, press the UP button, then, you will see the volume bar to appear. Keep pressing it until you reach the desired volume. When your done, just stop pressing or tapping and it will automatically return to call menu.
Enjoy Nokia 3315.
