Lumia 800 really loud?

Just got a new Lumia 800 and updated it to the latest 12070 firmware and it's really loud. It was like it before, but it just seems like they way over power the speaker on this phone.

1/30 is loud enough that I can hear my music play from my phone a room away, when it seems like 1/30 should be barely audible unless it's fairly close to you. Am I taking crazy pills? Is any one else's phone like this?

It's a known bug in the 12070 firmware, there's not much to do about it, except rolling back to the previous firmware...

Interesting how I didn't find anything about this until after I already made the post....


Is there a guide on rolling back updates (preferably without wiping?)

I get this bug from time to time, sometimes with music and sometimes with games/apps, 1-5 is max volume, and 6-30 seems normal.

I usually just close what ever it is and open it again and it seems to be ok!

Annoying bug though!

Restore your backup Ofcourse, all data put on the phone after you updated will be lost.

As with all things, hind sight is king.

Unfortunately I did not make a backup, am I pretty much screwed?

If you updated via Zune it should have created a backup. For the CAB-Sender and flashing variants: You could reflash an older Version however it could void your warranty.

I have this bug as well, but it only affects certain games and music for about 1 second after incoming calls. I hope the new firmware is coming soon... also, tethering?

Tethering comes with the Windows Phone 7.5 Refresh update (Tango).
