Ok guys i found a fix for the epix's ring volume problem. note that this WILL NOT solve the ascending ring problem (which seems to be hard programmed into the phone). btw attempting to change settings then going to listen to an mp3 or playing the ringtone from sounds and settings WILL NOT reflect how it will sound when the phone actually rings, there seems to be some sort of disconnect programming wise between the settings and the actual ring. here are the settings and FYI use at your own risk i am not liable for anything that might happen from this.
To increase ring volume to a reasonable loudness:
go to your phone keypad, dial *#0002*28346# then go to menu>normal>handset
in the settings. change DAC to 3db or 4.5db (i have mine on 4.5db since i keep mine in a case and its muffled a little). also change the RVOL to 12db. this works absolutely AMAZING. After making any and all changes you must always click menu>apply then perform a soft reset (power down then power up) to allow the settings to take affect. If you have any questions or problems just let me know.
the ring volume was one thing that was going to make me return the phone but with this fix it is definitly alot better. now only if someone could tell me how to get rid of the ascending ring that would be great (and no dont tell me to go to sound settings and take it off increasing ring because this does absolutely nothing)
Comments and suggestions are welcome

I tried that a couple of weeks ago took it all the way up to 22.5 db and clicked apply every time and still cannot hear it until it is too late. I finally dumped the epix and went to a Blackberry Bold and only did that because the I'm stuck with ATT The corp store I purchased it at would not work with on the problem or exchange for the bold. I was 5 days past the 30.
Sometimes if you contact customer service they will notate the account so that you can exchange the device. Also, the device is still within the first year of purchase. So you could go through warranty exchange and have it replaced with a functioning epix. How do you like the Bold? I think the device is georgous. I'm not familiar with Blackberry software though. I here it's a fast device. Faster than the BB Storm. And if you research rumored upcoming BB devices. there's some new blackberries coming out with the same physical appearance. And even one with a touchscreen!
