My main hope is that my replacement phone will be NEW and not refurbished. New w/ working audio would be nice too.
I just got this thing and getting one more used than my current would upset me pretty badly.
Replacement arrived today.
FAR better audio quality out the ear piece.
Audio out the back seems okay...I am going to put it through the paces and see what it does.
The "certified like new" phone arrived and unless they changed the chassis, it is new. The battery cover sticker was disturbed though (which I don't like the idea of).
My replacement phone is starting to buzz in the speaker again on voice peaks.
If it gets a lot worse, I may be calling them again.
I also have the equipment here to investigate the cause of the issue if I have to.
I love the keyboard and 4G, but it appears they forgot to test ACTUAL PHONE CALLS with these things.
I've had the same exact issue and had my phone replaced (Currently on my 4th Droid 4). This is absolutely rediculous. My first one did this after a month, 2nd one exchanged in store...same deal after a month. Then got a refurbished through the mail, happened within 4 days, got my 2nd refurbished this past tuesday and it's working great thus far...let's hope it stays that way!
Looks like I'll possibly have to switch to the Razr max if this issue keeps happening. SUPER annoying!
