Unhappy 2 Device problems i noticed on my phone.

First 1,gps needs around 10 mins in clear sky to lock my position , with gps fix(from the market) it takes 5-20 seconds.
Second and most important,all the people that i talk with cant hear my voice clear,i hear them clear tho,there is a really low pitch sound in the background when noone talking even on the road with full bars,i tryed 2g and 3g networks, i even tryed calling my phone from someone else phone and i couldnt hear his voice clear,when i used the headphones my callers heard my voice crystal clear.
I am thinking of taking my phone for replacement in the next 3 houers so i really apriceate any fast feedback especially for the second problem.

GPS fix is usually very quick on my X5 with data connection on, usually under 30 sec.
I've had one or two instances where a geocaching app wouldn't get a fix in 5 or 10 min. A reboot solved that every time.

As for the sound problem: sounds like your microphone is defect. No such problem on my phone...

1. You need to enable gps xtra for faster lock, in the same menu where you enable gps.

2. Some say that B160 rom creatly improves call quality, id try that from. Look from the dev section.

I have a similar problem...
When people call me they tell me that my voice is very low. This changes when i hold the phone in front of my face, then it becomes better. But it is only good when I switch to the loudspeaker mode. Then you hear my voice clearly. Is it possible that this phone has a certain voice activation level and that this is set too critical?
And if it is so, can I set this threshold value anywhere?
edit: And can I edit the volume of the microphone itself too?

I find that if I have the phone tucked between my ear and shoulder (like you do when you are using both hands for something but still want to talk on the phone), noone can hear me at all.

But if using it "normally" (ie: by holding it to my ear with my hand) it works fine.

Does this device have a noise cancelling mic that is affecting things when the entire back panel is covered or something?

True about GPS, just need to enable the option sanpsa said.
