Samsung Intensity 2 volume problem

Whenever I try to use a Bluetooth headset with my
Samsung Intensity 2, the volume from the phone is whisper quiet. I've
tried setting the master volume as high as it will go, as well as the
volume buttons on the side of the phone. The ring volume and the
speakerphone volume are nice and loud. I have tried the same Bluetooth
headset (Blueant Q1) on another phone and it works fine. Volume on my
blueant Q1 is set as high as it will go. The Blueant Q1 has
speech/commands of its own that are nice and loud, the problem is only
with the incoming volume from my Samsung intensity 2 cell phone.

I've read you can dial *#197328640# to get to a place on a Samsung
Intensity (version 1) where you can hack into the phone to increase the
volume, but it doesn't seem to work on a Samsung Intensity 2.

Does anybody know of any hacks or solutions for the Samsung Intensity 2 that will allow me to increase the volume?

One of the reasons.

I went through 3 different make and models. Sorry I don't have your phone but had that issue.

Of all things.

Plantronics Explorer 360. It was 15 bucks one day deal so it's the one that I use. It could be louder still IMO.

I have had trouble with the earpiece volume, however I don't use a bluetooth device. I did notice that I can only change the earpiece volume when I hit the side button during a call, could not change this setting otherwise and it is different from the master volume I believe.
