Oh well, it's going back

I have had this phone since the day it came out. I can't find any faults with it all except one and that one has made me decide to return it.

I can't hear it ring when I am outdoors and the phone is in my pocket. Doesn't matter what I do. I've tried my own ringtones, all of theirs and still I can't hear it. I have it set on high and vibrate. The vibrate is too weak to really alert you as well.

It's a shame. I had the original 9800 for a short time and don't ever remember that being a problem. I do remember wishing then as I do now that they had put the speakers on the outside.

In retrospect I wish Verizon had released the Prada version of this phone instead of the env.

oh... you are just never gonna stop huh? 🙂

he said he wanted to HEAR the rings (which I personally have no problem with.. custom ringers are loud for me..), not downgrade to a mono speaker that's quiet or too distorted. ;)

I've played with one of the iphones extensively.. even with custom ringers it's hard to hear the ringers and sometimes the music on the iphone... I dunno, maybe there's a trick to it.. but for what the iphone is supposed to do with all forms of multi-media... the single speaker was kinda weak in my experience.

anyway... sorry to see ya change devices... good luck on the next one donbp. I hear that the blackberry 8130 is pretty awesome.

I agree. I NEVER hear this phone ring when in my pocket. The vibrate is a JOKE!

I bearly hear it ring when in another room close by. Never had this problen with the ENV.

I never understood the reasoning behind having to open the phone for speakerphone either.

IMHO, this phone missed the mark on many counts. Too bad, it had great potential.

I agree. The only reason I have this phone is because it was an even exchange for my Samsung U740 as I had a repeated echo problem with that phone. So the Voyager cost me nothing and I am still not that pleased with it. I really miss the 740 that speaker phone was fantastic compared to the Voyager. I was able to hear any one of my ring tones fr...

they gave you a voayger for a 740!! Wow, That is a huge upgrade, i know you liked your 740 but I hate that phone and the cost is about $200 less. I would ebay your voayger go but a 740 and you would probably make a 100 in profit. I think your nuts but if that floats your boat.

Your right, I am nuts for signing another 2 year with Verizon earlier this year. If the Voyager had the volume level as the 740, I would be a happier camper.

Hey way to cry about it, like i said just ebay your voyager, you will make enough off of it to pick any phone they have out and probably still pocket some change. Personally looking from the outside this is a rediculous argument, they gave you a voyager and you are still complaining. You must have been one of the sprint cusotmers they let go for calling customer service to much, you know most of us in here paid 300 dollars for it we didn't have our crappy 80 dollar phones traded up to the voyager for free like you
