BlackBerry Storm2 9550
Problem with Speaker. Anyone else have this problem???
Maybe I am just dealing with a bad batch of Storms as this is the second time this phone has been replaced and I am still having the same problem.
If someone could comment and let me know if they are/are not having the same problem or if they have dealt with this problem in the past.
The people at the phone store probably think I'm completely crazy.
It sounds like your experiencing ambient noise. One way to diminish this is to speak more directly into your phone's microphone, limit the distance from the device, or try to wait until the other party is finished speaking. The best way to solve the problem is ask the caller if they are on their speaker phone and if so, to get off it. The noise factor should be resolved.
I did go to Verizon yesterday, and we switched the phone out (again) so I am currently on my 4th storm, and the new one does not have the problem that I had previously been dealing with. I also note that my mom has the same phone, and her's did not have the speaker issue that I had.
Hopefully this is the end of my problems. As said before, I do love the storm!
Thank you for your help!
Thanks for your help stormsurvivor.
I am so fed up with the problems with the noise, I am almost to the point where I don't even want to own a phone anymore!
What I have found through my research is people complaining of a "robotic" noise when two ends are talking. Robotic is probably a better description of the sound the voice makes when I have the issue. I had found that it is apparently a problem with the 713 OS (which is currently on the phone). They suggested downloading a Hybrid OS; more specifically, the Lyricidal's 713 Hybrid. Have you ever heard of a Hybrid OS? I am just wondering if there are any ramifications to downloading a new OS to my blackberry.
I consider myself a little "technically" challenged when it comes to things of this nature.
If you "go" Beta, this will be the last Storm2 that you can exchange....
Again your problem appears to be isolated, and the fact it is victimizing you, and you've gone through several devices, lends a thought to your reception area as a possible culprit. I have 7 employees living in Metro N.Y. that have Storm2...713 and none of them have a communication problem with the device.

Hopefully this is the end of all Storm 2 problems! Love the phone, but was getting REALLY frustrated with it...
