Flashed the Skyrocket ICS port from Racing, and in addition to the minor issues we've all read about already (screen auto rotation, gallery issues, etc.), This thread is to track the only deal-breaker that can keep this port from being a daily driver IMO, the call echo issue.

If you don't know (or maybe the people you've talked to are too polite to tell you lol) some people are experiencing caller echo on voice calls. Usually the person who is talking to you on the phone hears their own voice echoing back to them, as if you were on a bad cellular connection.

I have got around the issue (somewhat) by using the speakerphone, but obviously that's not a viable longterm fix. I believe if you use a bluetooth headset you can also get around this bug.

Anyone else experiencing this, and if so does anyone know of any work-arounds we could try? Maybe from the play store, or something that's worked on another device?

Also after some research looks like some people experienced this Call echo bug on their own stock AT&T Skyrockets when they were released.

Many people reported that they could fix the issue by enabling "Noise reduction" in the settings, but I haven't been able to find that option on the T-989.

EDIT: The reason the "noise reduction" option is unable to be found, is because google has removed the feature from ICS. Lots of Galaxy Nexus guys have had issues with call echo and voice quality in general.

Interestingly, a lot of people also got rid of the bug by NOT using their phone cases which seems strange to me. So anyone that has the bug, please try it with and without your case present to see if that helps clear it up.

There are also reports that if turn OFF (uncheck) USB debugging that helps in some cases. I'll test myself and report back

I'm not using a case at all and still get the echo issue.

As a temporary fix, I've found you can turn speakerphone on and then off real quick and that helps quite a bit (although it doesn't go away completely). the only annoying thing is you'd have to do that each time you made a call or answered the phone.

Yeah USB debugging has no effect for me either, nor does using a particular case or not using one at all. Same result.
