Any More Updates? - Background Noise


Jan 3, 2008, 8:05 AM
I really would like to get the 8830 but have been scared off by the background noise reports. They just seem too widespread to be totally off-base. Seems like RIM might come up with a better explanation or fix, or at least credible denial, rather than the seeming assertion by their tech folks that when you have a lot of sales, some of the customers are going to be fruitcakes.

In any event, have there been 1) software updates that fix or at least address this issue? and 2) are there any plans for a new blackberry world phone that Verizon might use, like an 8930? Smile

A second update to the device software was released by Verizon in early December (v4.2; updated 11/19/2007). It appears to have improved the background noise problem to the point where I no longer get complaints from people on the other end. The 8830 is an amazing device. This is my first BB.

Thanks so much, Rocco. The last reviewer wrote "People complain that I sound like I'm in a tunnel (but I am understandable)."

I wonder if anyone has experienced that as well. I realize it could be somewhat carrier-dependent.

I really would love to switch to the 8830 and drop my separate phone, but I want to minimize regrets.

I guess if I wait long enough maybe RIM will come out with a new world blackberry!

So is it safe to assume that the last software update corrected this issue? Or is there still a background noise issue.

Please respond. Thank you.
