This is most likley the codec used by each carrier to encode your voice. To put it in non technical terms, you voice needs to be converted to 1s and 0s to send it through the network. And when it does this conversion, it uses what is called a CODEC. How your voice sounds on the other end, is a direct result of how well it was encoded. The higher the quality, the beter it sounds. Unfortunately, when it comes to voice, you do not need a very high encoder as opposed to music - which is why music sounds like crap going over a cell network (especially CDMA like VZN/ Sprint).

I am not saying one carrier is better than the other carrier, but most likley this is what you are experiencing.

Also, to answer Chocolateman's repoly about not being able to send MMS via SPRINT, yes this is correct - but this is NOT a phone issue but more of a carrier restriction. Not sure what the logic behind that over on the SPRINT Corp side is, but they disable it within the phone. I have a SPRINT PPC6700 and I had to manually enable MMS so I can use picturemail Smile
