    Are there any volume hacks (non-root) that will work with the Sprint version of this phone?
    I tried the volume + 2.0 but it doesnt seem to like my phone.

    Any suggestions? Or will I have to root it.....
    Thanks in advance.

    Volume hack is the most common. If nobody else provides a solution you might be rooting.

    I'm surprised to hear of volume complaints, my wife's Sprint SGSIII has nice crisp sound IMO compared to my Gnex

    To be honest maybe its just me. I like a good solid ring, had it with my evo 4g, my wife's SGIII is pretty loud, maybe its just my phone.

    I wasnt sure what version of the volume hack worked with the sprint version of the sgIII

    Safe bet is go for the newest version possible. I've heard mixed results about volume hack on unrooted devices. Some say it works and others have seen no change.

    As far as rooted devices, normally the devs from the bigger name ROMs go in and manually alter code to tweak the volume levels so Volume Hack and associated "root access' apps are not really necessary unless you want to fine tune it even further.

    Last thought if you feel the output of the speaker isn't good enough take a run by your local Sprint store or where ever you purchased it if you have the warranty and see if they will swap out the speaker for you. Its a 5-10 min job literally and many times they have the speaker part in stock at authorized in house repair stores.

    I tried 2.0 and it kept crashing I am going back to the last one and see what happens from there.
