8830 Voice quality killing me ! Can this be on such an awesome device ?


Sep 8, 2007, 5:12 PM
Guys, I am so psyched to get this new phone. I was on the Q9m for a week and could not deal with the whole windows disaster. I had to constantly manage applications and kill them and the battery even with the extended was horrid , about 1.5 hours of talk best case.

So I got the new 8830 yesterday and I love the OS very much.. The mail and test and overall feel is great. Lots of my friends have the Curve and I expected the voice quality to be at least as good as that.

It's aweful and I mean aweful. You can be anywhere where there is any noise. I was in the mall and called a friend on my Moto V9m and he could talk to me no problem. I called him on the 8830 and he could not wait to hang up. It picks up every sound around you and amplifies...

Has there been any resolution of this? It seems like it might be ignored since receivers are complaining rather than the owners of the phone.

Any input would be appreciated.

Hmm I just got a used 8830 for sprint off ebay and my first experience is that the voice quality is spectacular. I mean REALLY good. not the loudest phone (more than enough for me) but ultra crystal clear on both ends.

It could be either your area? or maybe a goofy handset?
