Has anyone else noticed a lower in-call volume after the update? I feel I am struggling to hear everyone I talk to. This was not the case before I decided to do the update.

So, the only way I know how to raise the in call volume is to turn it up, only when your on a call, using the rockers. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

My in-call volume tells me it's maxed out, but I can barely hear.

Do you have any other Volume control apps installed that may be interfering?

I was wondering if you use Google Voice because I just heard there might be an issue with it at the moment.

Sorry fireguy_6364, but I just long pressed on my screen and made sure the Blinkfeed box was highlighted (Blue square around it), turned off Blinkfeed and it's gone.

Not visible, gone completely, and you now have the ability to add another blank screen, with or without Blinkfeed on at the opposite end of the page scroll.

Negative. No other volume control apps.

Sorry I can't be more help, but other than just restarting your phone, updating your profile or doing a HTC backup, I'm out of ideas. If this just started happening after the update, the last resort would be a complete reset, which I don't recommend until you get some other solutions.
