If there is a slider, you should have told me.  I thought it was a
process of sshing into the device guessing the volume to use in
gsmhandset.state file, restarting x, calling a couple of your pals
repeating the mantra of "Can you hear you now?"  and repeat.

On a personal note, I am hard of hearing so turning the volume down
does resolve the echo issue, but in a noisy background situation (like
walking down the street) the phone is pretty useless.

Fair enough, misunderstandings happen all the time.

Let's separate the victim status from pointing out weaknesses of this
system.  If someone says, hey, the stable 2008.8 repositories are
broken, does it mean that the communities is whining?  If something is
broken, it should be resolved and researched so it doesn't happen
