Loud environments are any caller's worst nightmare. An inability to hear the other person on the line can lead to angry conversations and an unprofessional reputation at the least. With all of the complicated high-tech features Apple's iPhone has to offer, adjusting the receiver volume may seem to be a daunting task. However, this simple adjustment can mean the difference between a good call and a frustrating one.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Make a phone call to someone either in another room or in a completely different location. You may want to call someone else in your household on your home phone for multiple tries.

  2. 2

    While on the line, locate the volume-adjust buttons on the left-hand side of the iPhone. On the iPhone 4, these buttons are marked with plus and minus symbols.

  3. 3

    Press the button with the plus symbol to raise the volume of the iPhone's receiver. Keep pressing the button until the other person is clearly audible. To lower the volume, simply press the button with the minus symbol until the volume reaches a comfortable level.

  4. 4

    Test the receiver's volume level in a noisy environment. The iPhone's receiver volume may need to be adjusted for different environments depending on the amount of noise around you.

Tips and warnings

  • Use the earbud headset that came with your iPhone to make calls while listening to music or in other noisy situations.
  • Configure a wireless Bluetooth headset with your iPhone for ultimate hands-free, clear calling.
