Droid call quality ?

I love the phone except for the call quality. Has anyone else noticed this problem when phone is dialing or during conversation? It almost sounds like the ear speaker is blown out.

Thanks Matt

Ps wife has the same phone with same problem.

On my phone, it sounds to me a little warbly or choppy.  Not enough to be unusable, but enough for me to find it jarring in comparison to other smartphones I have.  (I do mobile development; I have Far Too Many smartphones on my desk.)  

 

However, my friends who tried out my phone didn't notice anything wrong, so perhaps I'm just being oversensitive.

Uncheck the "Hearing Aid" setting in the phone settings.

Actually, fwiw, in my case the issue was the Conversation Privacy setting.  Turning that off definitely improved the audio quality.

Yeah I had to turn off the conversation privacy setting also.  Sounds great now.

I haven't a problem at all, including the speakerphone, which is crystal clear.

Do you drop a lot of calls?  I have people on the other side who can't hear me and then I also drop a ton of calls in areas that I normally blow right through with no problem at all.

Call quality has been excellent for me. Way better than my old Treo 700p. Have you updated the roaming by using *228 option 2? It may help you latch into more cell towers.

I went to the Verizon store today and they uploaded some patch using that *22 thing.  Tomorrow I will put it to the test but I am hopeful.
