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... (continues)
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?
