    Is there any way to increase the volume on 3g (ring tone), I am having difficulty hearing when the phone is in the pant pocket.
    Thanks for help

    Hit up on the volume rocker while on the home screen, that's as loud as it goes.

    You could also make your own ringtone and increase the volume of the song before loading it.

    The rocker it goes as far as it goes, it is not enough volume. Thanks for the advice. How do you create your own ringtone and increase the volume of the song before loading it.
    thanks

    On Windows find the freeware Audacity, you can edit music files with it and chop them up to ringtone length. There is also a feature to increase the volume levels of the file. After you're done save it and change the file extension to .m4r and put it in the ringtone file in the iTunes folder. It should then show up in iTunes as a ringtone.

    The 3g has a pretty quiet speaker to start out with. You may just want to change your ringer to something with a different pitch. Perhaps you'll be able to hear it better.

    Hey thanks a ton for this post. I've been using Audacity for a year but still
    wasn't quite sure of how to drag the ringtones to the iPhone ringtone folder.

    In case anyone does use Audacity, export/save the file as m4a and then
    change the file extension in the properties.

    For those that might have trouble with changing the file extension:

    If on Windows go to Control Panel>Appearance and themes>Folder Options>
    Click the "View" tab and make sure "Hide extensions for known file types" is
    unchecked. Now you can go back to wherever you have that file saved
    and change the extension to .m4r
