***Announcement: Welcome to the new Verizon Community! We have merged our Wireless and Fios Communities to bring you the best place to discuss any Verizon product or service, along with all things tech! We have many new features to discuss with you in the coming weeks, but first we want to make sure that all of you who have been active on either of our communities before are able to log in! For many of you, we have been able to merge your Wireless and Fios community accounts so all of your Community contributions are all in one place. If you were active in both communities and you previously used the same My Verizon account to log into both, you’re all set! You will be able to use those same credentials to access the new Community. If one of those accounts was with My Verizon and the other was a Community Member Only account, please use your My Verizon account to log in. Please note that we were only able to merge those accounts that were attributed to the same email address. If you only had one account on either Community, you can log into that account exactly as you have before. For some of our Fios Community members, you may have an issue logging in. If you had an account on the Fios Community and you’re having login issues, please use the Community Member Only login page and use the “Forgot my info” link to reset your password. Once you complete this, you should be able to log in normally. If you continue to have any further issues logging in, please email us at verizon.community.team@verizon.com and we’ll assist you to get you back in the Community! Keep an eye on the Community announcements - we can’t wait to show you what’s in store. The Verizon Community Team

Two days now and I still cannot figure out how to increase the volume

for phone use. I can barely hear the party I am attempting to converse

with.  Help please  :smileyhappy:

As a general rule, when in doubt, touch and hold. Many user interface objects have pop up menus that can be accessed with touch and hold.

So are you saying that when you are on a call and you use the volume control to raise the volume, the call volume does not increase?

You are correct my good man.  I have the ringer volume set to it's highest level

and I am assuming that is the same for voice.  I just took a call and while talking I

could lower the volume using the same bar but I could not raise it to a level where

i could easily hear and understand the caller.

Go onto the market and download and app called Volume Control. This small programs allows you to see the levels for all the volumes, as there are like 4-5 different ones on the phone. Works great.

Maybe the caller was using a crappy iPhone. :smileywink: I am not having any issues with call volume. As meister said each function (ringer, call volume, media, etc.) has its own distinct setting.

Yeah, the volume switches work seperately for whatever application you happen to be in, whether it's the media app, messaging or phone. It's nice, but sometimes a "master" volume would be cool.

Another challenge.  How do you delete records of earlier calls from the call log?

You can delete them individually by pressing and holding the record until the menu pops up, then select "remove from log". Or you can delete the whole log by pressing the menu button while looking at the whole list. You can also go into the settings and tell the phone how long to keep the logs.

Hope that helps.
