My dad (who uses an iPhone) and a few other people have been complaining that whenever they call me, they get really bad static or sometimes even echoed feedback during phone conversations. I've tried multiple different ROMs and he says it still happens sometimes. What confuses me is that its kind of random when it happens because other times it'll work perfectly. The mic isn't broken or damaged because recording apps don't have this problem. Is it something in my settings and/or the ROM causing this? Any feedback is appreciated.
I'm currently using the latest shoshock ROM and have in the past been using tasks AOKP, which is where it first randomly started.
First, you want to know if this is an intermittent hardware issue. The troubleshooting test for that is flash back to stock and observe. If the problem is still present, then it is very likely to be a hardware issue.
If not, then the problem is most likely in firmware somewhere. Since this is not a common problem, and since you have had it on multiple roms, it would probably not be due to the kernel or system firmware, so you would have to look at applications to see what might be interfering.
