Default Cell phone Volume via sync

Is there some kind of reset I can do to my sync panel? I have to turn the volume well over half way up to hear phone calls. Never use to be this way.

Any thoughts?

Try adjusting the volume on your phone. Mine is defaulted to 3/4 volume on Bluetooth and I have to increase it everytime after I've turned off the phone.

Same thing here. When I reboot my phone, bluetooth volume on the phone always defaults to 13. I increase my phone BT volume to 30 and then my radio volume does not need to be as high.

Hi digitaltrucker,

This could be caused by the volume on the actual phone. If you're not changing anything on the phone and the volume continues to reset in the truck, try performing a master reset. It sounds like you have the basic SYNC system with no touchscreen, but let me know if I'm wrong.

Here are the steps for that system: http://owner.ford.com/how-tos/sync-t...html?sync=sync

Once you've completed the master reset, pair the phone again and let me know if the volume is still acting strange.

In that case, use these instructions instead: http://owner.ford.com/how-tos/sync-t...ter-reset.html

So here is what I am seeing, if you guys are right about the phones BT volume, mine goes to 50% when connected to the Radio, via BT.

This is an older BB and when connected via BT, it will not let you adjust the volume on the phone. So I guess I am stuck for now since I cannot figure out how to raise the BT volume.

Did you already have a chance to perform that master reset?

I did not because I don't feel that its the system now.

Once my BB connects, if I make a call the phones volume reduces to about 50%, and I cannot change that while Bluetooth connected. I have looked at options on the phone and there is no separate volume setting for Bluetooth.

If I turn off Bluetooth, the phone volume returns to 100%.

So I am not sure what a master reset will do to change things on my blackberry??????????
