[Q] phone calls do not sound clear + faint buzzing noise during calls
Yesterday I retired an original MyTouch 3G and picked up a T-Mobile SGH-T989. I've placed 3 long phone calls with different people and have a difficult time hearing them. The volume is good, but their voice is slightly muddled? clipped? reverbed? On every call, I can also detect a very faint electrical noise, sounds kind of like coil whine from a power supply. Frankly, compared to the HTC MyTouch (dream), it sounds terrible and find myself asking the other person "what's that" a lot.
I live north of Boston and can only get Edge inside my house. The phone is stock for now, wifi is connected to my router, gps is on, bluetooth is off.
I will go out soon where it is 4G, turn off wifi, and make a call to see if there is any difference. I suspect it will be the same. This may be a deal breaker for me which is a shame, because I love this monster phone so far (except for the lack of a notification LED).
Anyone else make out the electrical noise during calls?
