This was being discussed in a unrelated thread so I am starting this one so we can try to figure out what is causing it and who is having this issue.

Basically on stock LT28i. 68 firmware and on LT28h 3.7 firmware I have experienced a garbled scratchy sound when trying to make phone calls. Only thing I have found so far that fixes it is a reboot.

Who else has experienced this issue? I would like to get some more troubleshooting done with everyone before I pass the info along to my Sony Dev contact.

Happened to me once...didn't think it was a known bug though, this was after I flashed the pre-rooted 6.1.E.3.7...tried to make a few calls when I realized that weird sound, but I could receive calls just fine...did a reboot and back to normal so I didn't think twice about it until I saw your post.

This happens to me several times a week. Since I updated to the latest firmware for the lt28i. Since, upgraded to the latest lt28h, and still have the same issue.

Re: [ion] garbled scratchy sound when making phone calls
So LT28i and LT28h firmware have the issue. Anyone on AT&T firmware have the issue? I'm going to flash back to the AT&T firmware and see if I still get it.

Exact thing happened to me. Only on the international firmware.

I have also run into this. I go to pick up a call or make one and you get all kinds of garble and squeal. I dont recall it ever doing it on the first ICS H firmware but every I and H firmware from then does. Cant say the ATT ones do it as I have never really used them. The only time it seems to do it is when the battery is under 20% or if the device has been on for more than 24 hours with out a re boot.

Same here - Lt28at running LT28h on the ATT network. Only cropped up recently.

Note: I'm on AT&T's network.

I too had this problem when I flashed my LT28at to the LT28i 6.1.E.2.68 build. It appeared to go away for a long while after I reflashed only the modem found in LT28at 6.1.C.1.105 using flashtool. (note: it "appeared" to go away. I don't get very many voice calls...)

Had a failed OTA update the other day which seems to have brought back the initial problems but I cannot verify anything as I am currently at work. A reboot has my phone operating correctly (for now). Will mess with it more later but, from what I read, the lack of reproducibility of this issue may make troubleshooting difficult.
