How to Adjust the Speaker Volume on a Cell Phone

By Diana Braun

Many cell phones and smart phones come equipped with a speaker feature. The speaker makes it easy to share a conversation with others in the same room or carry on a phone call without holding the phone to your ear. If the call appears faint or too loud, the volume can be adjusted using the volume controls of the phone.
