Guys,
I've come across a prob in my i9000 Galaxy S. :(

My earpiece is defective somehow, as it makes a rattling noise when i make calls. I compared with another Galaxy S and identified this problem. Its like those cheap speakers you find on pocket radios now.

So i need to replace my earpiece and i dont know where to look for one. When i checked the manuals and videos i saw that it comes as part in a ribbon cable which also has the 3.5mm audio base.

I already tried ebay, but most of em are coming from hong kong, china which i believe are not authentic. Most of them even looks like they were home made.

From where can i get a genuine Samsung galaxy S earpiece ?
I wont mind even if its a working one removed from a bricked or a broken galaxy S.

Please help me out guys, as this noise bothers me everytime i make a call. :(

Do you mean headset? If yes just get a new one or get a Bluetooth one.

If your phone's earpiece is crackling send it back for warranty claim as mine was fixed after replacing motherboard.
