    Hey guys. New to the note 2 forums. I just moved from verizon galaxy nexus to a sprint note 2. In calls I get a little static when the other party is speaking. Its not horrible but still annoying none the less. Was wondering if anyone else had this issue. Wasn't sure if it is a phone or sprint issue. Did a search and nothing really came up. Thanks

    Can you verify that it is only in calls that you get static?
    Do you get any noticeable static with any notification sounds or music?

    It is likely that the connections to the speaker at the top of the device is not solid or the speaker itself is faulty, the issue sounds similar to when you have headphones plugged into a jack just slightly so sound comes through, but not fully.

    If it's not happening in all of your calls outgoing and incoming there is probably just a bad cellular connection it happen to me today and the next call I made immediately after the signal was good

    People today still don't understand that whenever you have a cell phone that it doesn't mean it's going to have the best connection 247 just because its one the fastest phone on the market this just means that when you have a good connection that your phone is capable of going that fast. It's almost like those commercials you seen when you were a kid and they had you thinking toys could to do all these amazing things and really its what your imagination held. I'm a family wrong for being upset because of the consumer you have spend your hard earned money and you expect havewhat youve paid for but I'm just saying that we have to be realistic.

    It's not normal. I noticed the same thing on mine when I picked my note 2 up today at Verizon.

    I've read other items stating their note 2 devices do not do this. But then again, the guy at the store was throwing it around like a $300 toy. It does it on all incoming and outgoing calls whenever the other person speaks.

    Yeah it's all calls going in and out. Only is during calls. Music or video sound quality is fantastic. It's just during calls

    Mine does this with all audio. It's so faint that I strain to hear it in normal situations. With headphones plugged in, the right channel seems to be the defective one because it has static/hissing like crazy during quiet moments in calls. It's ironically funny because I first tried the headphones three days after the return policy that Sprint uses had expired. They were going to charge full price for a replacement since I have no insurance.

    I have the same issue as the OP. I also have trouble with people being able to understand me when I talk. Sprint shrugged off my issues. I'm gong to Samsung next.

    If it only happens during calls, then it most likely is your connection (especially if it's both speaker and when using headsets). From what I've read, Samsung's are known for not having the best radios... Since I get a good signal almost everywhere I'm at, I'm happy with my GN2... although my old ELTE4G did get signal in places that the GN2 doesn't..

    The older Samsung's were a lot worse than the s3 and note 2 by far...

    Just a quick update. It's more likely sprint in my area. Some phone calls come in very clear I had sprint send me an airwave and that helps tons with signal in my house. Calls are clearer now.

    No fix that I know of. If you have the chance to replace it, I would say it's worth a try to see if it's only affected a few devices. I was three days too late, and Sprint was going to charge me full retail. I've just tried my best to ignore it. I'm really hoping it's just a sound card driver issue, but Samsung hasn't even acknowledged it..
