calls received from x10 have loud hissing and echo
i recently got my gf an x10 for her birthday, whenever she makes a call the person receiving the call hears loud hissing noises like someone is blowing into the mic, and a bit of an echo of there own voice. I searched around the forums but noone else seems to be experiencing this so assumed it was a faulty phone and i went and got it replaced.
However the problem still persists on the new handset. After much messing with the phone i deduced its the contact between hand and handset thats causing the hissing.
The simplest way to reproduce the annoying noises is to just rub your finger lightly up and down the back of the X10 (sounds wierd i know), remember theres no noticable sound impact on the X10, just any phone receiving a call from one will hear the sound.
Just curious if anyone else has experienced this or knows of a way to prevent it, currently half the conversations i have with her are inaudiable because when ever shes moving around (ie walking down the street) all i hear are loud hissing noises. (this is not wind blowing into the mic, iv done many tests)
thx for reading. Mike.
