    May seem silly, but...

    Has anyone here heard if the Eris has the same issues? I'm way past my return date, but if this issue continues for me, I may end up paying full pop for an Eris if I cannot get resolution from Werizon Vireless. I love the Droid, but I hate the voice quality. From where I stand, it seems that for the money paid, we should have a phone that actually works! I don't know about anyone else, but they will have exactly THREE (3) chances to make things right by me, or I will be getting a law firm involved, and am considering leveling a breach-of-contract dispute and a class-action lawsuit against VZ, Goog, and Moto.

    my brother in-law had the same problem and it was caused by a protective case he was using on the droid. once he removed it, calls were much clearer

    I have a Zagg film on mine, but there is a cutout around the mic. It was doing it before, anyway.

    Ugh, all of my callers complain of this. To test I just set my Google Voice greeting message and I see what they are saying... it sounds atrocious, like I'm talking through a few blankets.

    I'm wondering, for people who have this issue: look closely at your Droid's microphone pickup (the little slot on the chin) and see if there is a tiny hole down in there. If so, is it centered and is it more towards the top of the bottom.

    For people that don't have this problem, same thing. What does your mic pickup look like?

    The only time I sound muffled or very faint is when I am laying down and trying to talk with the phone in the upside down position....No one has complained about the way I sound otherwise. Mine is naked and has no cover.

    I just received my third refurbished Droid today because of the muffled issues. I've heard ... that manufacturing dates of 40/09 tend to have these kinds of problems. If this one presents with the same poor call quality, Verizon tells me that I'm in line for a brand new one. Really my only complaint with the phone, but it's a big one ... There's an active thread on this matter on the Motorola site: https://supportforums.motorola.com/t...16215?tstart=0

    12 people at my company got Droids a few weeks ago. 3 of us are having this problem too. I've called people on Verizon, T-Mobile, and land lines (basic, and VOIP) they all have said that I sound like I'm in a tunnel, and am yelling with my mouth right on the mic.

    Two of my co-workers are complaining of the the same issue on their phones.

    I find it odd that we have 12 Droids shipped to us, and so far, 3 out of the 12 users (myself included) are having issues. What's the chance of that?

    I really haven't found an answer out as to if this problem is a physical defect, of if it's a soft issue.

    Anybody else have any advice?

    Reboot every 3 days if people you call are sometimes complaining about echoing/muffled/garbled voice. You won't get these complaints if you use bluetooth/speakerphone a lot. If you do get a call where someone complains, toggle the speakerphone on and off. Also, make sure you are speaking into the mic.

    My theory is that it is the noise cancelling software the Droid utilizes.

    In option 04 (vocode), change the option to EVRC-B, it made my in-call audio sound wayyy better. Your phone will reset after you exit and apply the new setting.
    When I do that phone will not call out
