Welcome to Vodafone Community
Hi. I've had my Vodafone Smart N8 for over a year. Everything fine until a week ago, when the sound of the alarm, calls, etc. went down to approx. 50% from its initial sound level. I have tried with the Settings, Manual, Apps, etc. and I haven't found the source of the problem. Any suggestion? Thanks.
Some phones media sounds have their own setting away from the ringtone level.
Please check to ensure yours is still turned up if relevant.
Does this issue remain the same when choosing different available tones ?
Please also look in the speaker , Mic and all other posts for built up of lint etc. Use a torch maybe.
If there is none and a soft reboot by turning it off and on does not help then please consider popping into a Vodafone High street Store so they can look it over and if required send it off to be looked at.
This should be covered under the 24 Month Manufacturing Warranty as long as the phone hasn't been dropped or water has got into it.

From the thread here https://forum.vodafone.co.uk/t5/Android/Smart-N8-muted-by-default/td-p/2565674 try turning off microphone in your Google application settings, it may not apply to your problem but worth a try.
You can also do a factory reset, this should clear any bugs from the phone.
If you still have problems after trying the above, take the phone into a Vodafone Store where they will be able to arrange a repair.
