Volume on phone is too loud since getting cable

I just signed up for the cable/internet/phone package and had it installed yesterday. It's only today that we noticed that calls were VERY loud. I have to keep it away from my ear or it starts to hurt. I turned the volume down on the base unit as far as it would go, to no effect.

 

I only found one mention of this on the forum from several years ago. Does anyone else have this problem?

 

I use a Vtech cordless phone system, nothing fancy and it's a couple years old. I'm not keen to go replacing equipment when it worked just fine with verizon 2 days ago.

Voice mail is too loud - has always been too loud. I keep thinking about switching voice mail back to ATT.

I'm tired of being shouted at
