I have a Telecom phone (Samsung W531) on a phone number ported from Vodafone.  One thing that I have noticed is significantly different volume when I get calls from Vodafone and Telecom.  When I get a  call from a Vodofone user the volume is really loud, and I have to turn the phone right down.  On the other hand when I get a call from a Telecom user the volume is really low, and I have to turn the volume on my handset right up.

The same thing happens whether the call is incoming or outgoing.

Also I have had a few Vodofone users say they have difficulty hearing and I have to talk quite loudly into the phone to be heard.  (The phone has had a mic replacement and also been reset by Telecom, and is better than it was).

Just wondering if anyone has noticed anything similar.

My friend has one of those Samsung handsets and when he rung me the first time I asked him if he was whispering.

He also advised other people had said the same thing
