I'm having problems with the ringer volume being too low. I guess its because the speaker is not on the outside of the phone when its folded. Ringer volume is set to full, but its still not loud enough for me when Im in my car with the radio on. Is there any clever trick that Im not aware of. Any ideas are welcome as its a real pain. Ta

There is no way out. if you have had your phone less than 7 days and not talked that much on it you could try taking it back to the store.

My partner has a similar case with her TX115c, even with the loudest ringtone & ring volume set she still cannot hear it from the other end of the house, let alone from the bottom of her hand bag!

This could be an interesting test case for the Consumer Guarantees Act.
"Goods must be: fit for the purpose they are made for."

Surely if you buy a mobile phone you should to be able to hear it ring?
Especially when it's set to it's maximum volume!

"This could be an interesting test case for the Consumer Guarantees Act."
Indeed. I had a similar issue with a phone with it ramdomly crashing... 6 weeks later they replaced the handset, but I avoid Alcatel and Accord like the plauge now days


Going back on topic, in my opinion, yes they should. But more and more shops are getting picky and referring issues like this under their warranty. So if you take it in and they do try that.... expect to part with your phone for anywhere between 1 week and 4 weeks +.

Although they may say its a 'design feature'. :-/

grrr don't I know it

I got an Alcatel 565 at Xmas and i had to get it replaced a month ago due to the screen going dead. So they replaced it, and behold. the keys start to fall off it O_o and then I wanted to exchange it for a new (More Expensive) phone (a Panasonic X400) and they wouldn't do it. THey sent the damn thing away and gave me a crappy Nokia for a loan phone. Needless to say I am pissed. and I keep getting sent PXTs that the freaking phone won't display.

Oh dear. My TX115 seems to have developed a fault with the ringtone speaker and now the ringtones are so faint that you can only hear them if you hold the phone up to your ear!

It's under warranty, but I have a feeling that this problem may relate to an accident that I had with the phone when I first got it. Oh well, if they won't fix it under warranty then I might use this as an excuse to splash out on a new Sanyo 8200 which should be due for release very soon.
