Can you hear yourself talk?

While on a call can you hear what you are saying to the other person in the earpiece? Not an echo, word-for-word.

No heasdet, while holding the phone. I can hear what I'm saying while I'm saying it in the ear piece. It's not too annoying but I want to know if this his happening to anyone else or if it is a defect.

This is happening while I use the phone itself, not a BT headset.

The phone echos when you use it that just plain sucks, why can't these cell phone manufacturers get it right. When I tried it a t the verizon store it didn't do that I wonder why.

It sure sounds like it I was truley thinking of returing my Nokia 6256i and getting the razr cause the 6256i speakerphone hums and makes a low hiss noise but hell I don't want a phone that echos either. Can't these cell companies make a phone that works right. I am of the belief because they load so much crap on these phones like cameras mp3 players , etc, the phone quality suffers as a result. I just want a solid phone that works well.

motorola engineers most of their phones to have background noise so you can hear yourself talk. it's not an echo, it's depth in the background similar to that of a landline.

mobile phones by nature have no background noise. have you ever heard someone screaming into their phone walking down a street? it's because they can't hear themselves talk and it sounds like there is no call being placed. motorolas have a deep, resonating tone that lets the user know they are in fact connected. that is why i love motorola.

i have not used all motorola handsets but for example, the E815 has this feature and it sounds much better than LG phones which you have to make guesses that you are in fact connected to a call.

Yeah, I can't believe ChocoTaco369 actually said they engineer their phones like this?

INDEED! This feature of hearing your own voice is called side-tone (I believe), and it's intentional, and it's a feature I happen to like. In fact it's one reason why I prefer Motorola phones because no other manufacturer (to my knowledge) has this feature. Especially in a loud environment, it's helpful to hear one's own voice (in my opinion), to facilitate a reasonable talking volume level with the person on the other end. KUDOS Motorola!!!!!

I went from a samsung i600 to this phone and gaining this "feature" to me was quite a shock. not having the option to disable it annoys me greatly. I have played with about 10 other various moto phones since discovering it and found that the razr v3c (or at least mine) is the loudest in this department as far as the feedback goes. It's so bad that I have to talk quite soft to hear most callers over the feedback and at least once a call am asked to speak up which only results in me not being able to hear their end over my own voice fed back through the headset!!! Crap i tell you. consumer crap devices which don't allow features such as this to be disabled. For this reason Samsung > motorola imho

Hey That is Crazy I actually looked that term "sidetone" up and here is what i found:

"sidetone: The sound of the speaker's own voice (and background noise) as heard in the speaker's telephone receiver. (18😎 Note: Sidetone volume is usually suppressed relative to the transmitted xxvolume. Synonym telephone sidetone"

And this is what Vendors describe this as:

Problem

Hearing self or sidetone through the earpiece.
Solution(s)

This unit employs state-of-the-art frequency hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) technology to achieve one of the longest ranges in the consumer cordless telephone industry. FHSS is a digital technology that is also found in much more expensive cellular telephones. Just as it is common to experience echo in s...

if you are in a loud environment it picks up the background noise and amplifies it though you phone which makes it worse. IMO
