My ip4 sms,mail,  app notification alert sounds seem too quiet. Even with the volume cranked right up they sound like they're only at about 40/50 percent.

Can hardly hear them if the phone is in my pocket.

I've always found it a bit hit and miss being able to hear notification messages when my iphone was in my pocket
I've put it down to the surrounding noise, and if I've put my phone in my pocket with the speaker facing down to the bottom of my pocket

same applies when receiving a ph call espicaly sitting down, speaker facing down can really muffle the sound

do you know of anyone you can compare sound levels with
a friendly VF shop perhaps

I have noticed that the notification are a bit quiet. Only really notice if I'm listening to music because it mutes the music for a bit.

Things like the alarm are LOUD (as they should be) maybe its just the sound for certain apps thats on the quiet side even with ringer volume turned way up.

I can hardly hear them with the phone in my pocket while in a public place... I'm pretty sure im not going deaf either :D

I'll compare with my friends iphone 4 later.
