    Default Popping/Cracking sound at beginning of phone call...

    Everytime I make or receive a phone call there is a pop/crack of static just at the very beginning of the phone call...its pretty annoying and almost hurts my ear when it happens ...anyone else experience this?

    are any of your sound settings maxed out?

    Haven't had the issue myself.

    No bluetooth and if I turn the volume down it does make the "pop" less noticeable but its still there and still annoying....wondering if its a software or hardware issue since the rest of the phone call is fine, just happens at the beginning

    Any problem if you leave your general area to make a call so that you're connecting to another tower?

    lol.

    Honestly, I would ask for a new phone. I would not tell VZW the crackling is only at the beginning of a call.

    Of course, VZW will tell you to do a factory reset first. And, they may ask you to wait for the OTA, too.

    You could also have them reset the radios remotely. That helped with my Charge for a short bit...

    Yes

    They will

    you need to tell them no you want a new phone. It's possible its a software issue but it sounds a little more hardwareish to me. Almost like when the signal goes through the circuit the circuit overamplifies it causing the popping sound. I would imagine after a while that would eventually start to cause issues with your speaker.

    The simple answer to the "factory rest" they want you to do is: I already did that. Usually works

    Im going to wait until I get ICS to see if that does anything...I had a hell of a time with "like New" replacements for my droid x and since this phone works perfectly other than this issue, I'm pretty hesitant on replacing it.
