Hey Viperboy, heres one for you.. I have a droid and my girlfriend does too. Well in the same house I get one bar and have trouble watch youtube in HD.. While she gets 4 bars and can watch the same youtube video in HD no problem.. It may never play or start(after long delay) and stop several times on mine, where on hers it starts very quick and plays hole video..
I have swap my phone twice frist phone was bad, second was worse, third is better then the first 2 but still not like hers..
I have talk to tech guys over the phone. the first guy said it was my network, second guy said it was the phone. These talks were during the time frame of the second phone.. The last guy put in a work ticket And I guess somebody is going to contact me in about 10 days(seems like a long time)
I don't know if this matter but my girl was with the Alltel before merge and my number is from a few years ago with Nextel.. Thanks for any insite..
Viper....can the number of rings before going to voice mail be changed...or has Verizon put a stop to it?
Do you know why I don't get signal in my cafeteria while ATT does? like, possible explanations?

While I appreciate that Viperboy intends to help, switching to EVRC-B is not a good idea, based on what is found in the link above. Bottom line is that while EVRC-B will sound better than EVRC, not all cell sites support it. So if you set it and it works where you are now, you will eventually wander into a cell that does not support it and you won't be able to make calls and won't remember how to switch back. A better choice is the first option "13 bit". It apparently sounds as good as EVRC-B but works all over and apparently uses more bandwidth.
Hi Viper. Thanks for all your help here, it is appreciated.
I apologize if this question was already asked... I skimmed the thread, didn't see it pop up so here goes...
What do you know about the problem with the crackling audio when doing music playback or any other audio through the phone's headphone jack?
For example, any time the headphone jack is in use (such as plugging in headphones and listening to music on the Droid, or plugging the Droid into a car stereo via the headphone jack linked to the car's AUX input), if you turn the phone's volume up past approximately 70-80%, it will make severe crackling noises come from the speakers, mostly the left speakers. This happens in my $400 shure headphones... I love high-quality music and no MP3 player I've ever had causes this problem; none of my iPods, I had an I River way back in the day, and a Zune, and they all playback music better than my Droid. In the first week I had my Droid, I didn't have any problems. However, the past 2-3+ weeks have been a bother with the crackling problems when I do playback via the headphone jack...
I actually thought I blew a speaker in my car before I noticed the crackling coming from my Bose stereo system at home as well, in addition to my my surround sound system at home, all when I had the Droid plugged in via the headphone jack.
I've since had my Droid exchanged (due to 11 dead pixels in the screen of the previous Droid... sigh!) and this new Droid does the same thing, both before and after the 2.0.1 update.
Anything you know about this? Is it a bad phone, or an issue everyone is having?
I have family who works as a CSR in our area's retail VZW store, and he said he keeps forgetting to ask his in-store tech about the problem. I'd normally go through him for answers, but he is off work for a few more days and I'm seeking answers relatively quickly.
yeah I also have the same crackling noise when playing music through my car stereo. I also thought I had blown my bose stereo system. It would be nice to get this fixed.
