Motorola plans to address DROID X volume issues in an "upcoming" software release

Motorola plans to address DROID X volume issues in an
The voices of many newly minted Motorola DROID X owners have been heard after numerous reports came flooding in regarding the lack of ample volume with the ringer and speakerphone. Naturally this can become an issue for those who experienced missing that all too important phone call you cannot miss out on. Thankfully Motorola is going to address the issue and pointed out in a forum post that the company aims to address the volume issues in an “upcoming” software release. However, it explicitly does not say whether it'll be a standalone update or something that will be bundled together with something bigger; such as the upcoming Android 2.2 Froyo update. Still, we'd imagine a quick fix to it could be released very quickly and could possibly be pushed out even before they release the Froyo update, but hey, at least they included a listing to some of the loudest ringtones out there.

I did notice music and youtube plays the audio was very weak compared to when i had the droid. Good to see they are going to fix the issue soon.

Does your X randomly reboot itself? Mine is constantly doing that for some reason.

I just REALLY want to stop that darn VZW Vcast Media site from launching EVERYTIME I plug my DX into the USB cable. Especially since it doesn't work with W7....or the DX!!

All you have to do is configure the app that shows up in the system try to not launch the web site. It's like 2 clicks.

@Phoneguru173 I have actually stopped plugging my X in because of that. I hate that it launches every single time. I am happy they are fixing that problem. Only reason I know my phone is ringing is because I have a bluetooth that rings in my ear when my phone has an incoming call.

I had that same problem, and what solved it was a factory reset. It sucked having to set up my droid x again but, it works fine now.

What I suggest about the program launching issue is getting a task killer, not only will it fix the problem it will help extend battery life.

Huh. Didn't notice any volume issues with any Xs I sold. But once again, Moto and Verizon show a much better attitude about fixing issues with their phone. Better than who? Take a guess.

Had to call Motorola about X rebooting on it's own, and they said: it was due to to the SW and would be fixed with the next release... This was after going through every tier of TS they had...

Please fix the Volume level on notifications and ringtones. I have good ringtones on my Droid X which are also on my old blackberry that work just fine. I can never hear my phone ring with them on my Droid X...... I miss more calls with this phone than any other phone I have ever had. I even have it on vibrate and that doesn't even vibrate that well. I absolutely love the phone, please update this issues if possible in the next Android 2.2 Froyo update, or I may have to switch to anyother phone.
