Customer Question

I have a new Iphone 4. I am slightly hearing impaired. Is there a way to boost the volume on the ear speaker while I'm on a call so I can hear the caller? Likewise it would be nice to boost the volume on speaker calls too. Thank you.

You can try this app:

And this may help:

other than that we can look at earphones

The apple link didn't provide an answer for increasing volume on calls in progress.

You didn't say that all you said was:

Already Tried:
Iphone 4 I've just tried the volume controls on the side of the phone. They don't boost the volume enough.

What else have you tried so I don't waste any more time?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I've checked an app called Volume Boost. Doesn't work. I've browsed the blogs. Don't want to stick a pin in my speakers. Also checked jailbraking my phone which I don't want to do. There you have it. I can't believe there isn't a solution. Don't want to wear an earpiece. That's it.
Expert:  Mike replied 3 years ago.
Well if none of the apps work you will have to wear an earpiece to make it louder... end of story. I don't know the extent of your hearing loss but this device also works with blutooth phones:

or if your hearing is not that bad these:

Expert:  Mike replied 3 years ago.
If you don't want to wear an earpice I'm afraid the iPhone is not for you, there are many hearing impaired phones out there. Good luck.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I caught in a difficult cycle. I don't want to accept the answer since it did not solve my problem. I can't see where to deny acceptance but all I see are buttons that say "accept answer." I'd really like to get out of this situation and get my deposit back. What a confusing system. I've been trying for 24 hours.

I answered your question. You will have to ask customer service.

We don't guarantee to solve your problem but to answer your question. There is no solution for your problem if you do not want to wear a headset.

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
