When making a call the volume of the ear piece (receiver speaker according to the CSD tool) is very low. This makes it uncomfortably difficult to make out whatever my interlocutor is saying even if I turn up the volume as far as the bar will go normally.

In order to get a decent volume I currently need to activate the loudspeaker, but I'd rather avoid doing this (it's not very polite in a busy environment).

I've tested the audio playback separately using the CSD tool and my results were:

  1. Receiver has a low volume, with the play music to receiver test; even when volume is turned up all the way using the volume buttons.
  2. The loudspeaker has excellent volume.

    So how do I tell my Jolla to turn up the volume to the ear piece (receiver) even further?

Hmm, strange. I had never any issues with the volume in phonecalls. I assume, you used a wired headset for your tests? It sounds like it could be hardware related. I'd suggest you try with a bluetooth headset, if available and see if the problem persists.

Yes, I used a wired headset and unfortunately don't have a bluetooth headset to hand. I don't suppose you have any ideas as to how to solve my main problem, namely: to increase the volume of the receiver speaker (with or without any headset connected) ?

I figured out the problem with the headset (the N9 plug is apparently electrically incompatible so it yields poor volumes with the Jolla). Borrowed another wired headset (Blackberry) and it works fine. So that just leaves the receiver speaker... At least now I know a workaround...

@zlatko : my question is not (any longer) about volume from headsets (earpieces). I used the word receiver since that is the same term used by the Jolla CSD tool to indicate that speaker.

@cmacq2 When speaking of mobile phone terminals the commonly accepted terms are: handset(terminal device itself) and headset(earphones). Handset has earpiece(you press that piece to your ear), microphone(you keep it to your mouth) and speaker/ringer. You can have noice cancelling mic as well. Sorry, but "receiver" means completely different thing. Stated that way question is not making much sense. The term widely used is "handset earpiece". I was wondering where this "receiver" thingy came into living, but now I understand :) Jolla shall make some better translation(in CSD). Anyway - I corrected it so it is easy to understand, but as it is your question if you insist on "receiver" - so be it. I have NOT misinterpreted your question in any way, just made it unambiguous. Also - there is already such threads: Please better comment and vote there. If you agree - we can close this one, not to dilute TJC and spill votes. Use search :)
