2.2 Cricket Zio Audio/Pandora issue
Hello, new to the forums, lurking for a while. I own a cricket zio (unrooted) and waited for the OTA update, and before hand i read a few posts talking about audio issues from people who tethered. When i finally updated, i also heard a few issues of my own. At first i thought it was an overall audio issue, but then realized its a isolated type of issue at least in my case:
1. I first made a phone call, and since have made quite a few. It seems as though the ringing is always distorted in some weird robotic way for some reason now, as it was never like this before 2.2, but the audio quality of the actual phone conversation hasnt changed at all. The distortions of the ringing are the only thing ive heard as far as the phone call quality goes. So im ok with this, just something i noticed.
2. I then immediately checked my pandora quality, and was horrified that it sounded terrible no matter if i had it on high quality in the pandora settings or not. I tried the two different headphones i have, and it was the same on both. I also tried to unplug from the audio jack and wait 5 secs, like suggested in the older audio thread, nothing. I then changed to the last.fm app, and it seemed to be working fine. So im kinda dombfounded as to what the problem is.
3. While listening to mp3s on my SD card, using the stock android audio player, they sounded muffled and low in the same way pandora sounded. I read in another thread about the sound quality issue, someone mentioning poweramp, which i downloaded. Right away i noticed a HUGE difference in the quality, not to mention that this is a great app altogether, so that fixed that issue for me.
If anyone else is having these issues or any similar, myself and im sure quite a few others would like to hear about them so we can possibly find fixes.
