So, been asking around a bit and it seems that, in the UK at least, the instructions being given to retailers is that there is a known issues with the earpiece that is affecting some Defy handsets.
Apparently they're saying to send the phones back to Motorola to be dealt with.

That's a bit unusual.

At the left you can see two pins and i think that is the earpiece, but i haven't high quality photos, so i can't be sure of that...

I spoke with a Tmo (USA) rep and they asked me to pull the battery and look at the small sticker towards the top of the compartment. They were looking for either a blue dot or “BP” in the text above “made in China”. It seems that if your phone has either of these, you are in the clear...

Interesting.. I'll have to check and report back. I have mine since the day before Thanksgiving, and it's fine. Thanks for the tip.

If you have a BTxx or BFxx or see a Blue Dot on your phone's label beneath the battery door you can have confidence that your device is not affected by this issue as long as you are still able to connect a Bluetooth or Wired Headset and the issue goes away. If the issue does not go away with a Bluetooth or Wired accessory then you have a separate issue.

So, is it possible that isn't a pin-contacts issue?
