    Has anyone experience a blown speaker in their Inc yet? I just had mine blow while receiving an incoming call. volume wasnt all the way up and it was a song as a ringtone. they are replacing it but the store i went to hadnt heard of anyone blowing a speaker yet. just wondering if this was a fluke or if i have to change my ringtone?

    What ringtone are you using that could possibly do this?

    Ive had 3 of them blow out so far. I'm only using stock ringtones and notifications. It seems to happen every 2 to 2 1/2 weeks.

    I have had two blown already. I cant beleive the speaker is fully exposed. Verizon tells me the same thing, that there has not been any complaints on the speaker.

    Do you guys use the speaker for music a lot instead of using headphones?

    Mine just blew yesterday, what a POS. Never in all my years of cellphones have I had a speaker blow. Totally ridiculous. Going to the store tomorrow.

    For starters I think the speaker is just to small, it has to have the volume all the way up to hear it (just for ringer). Also its f_ing exposed, the screen that covers the speaker is so fine that pieces of metal get past it and stick to the magnet (from work). Even all the cases have a hole for the speaker. Thats why I went back to motorola DX. I guess you cant have it all, in one device.lol.

    I've had mine since the day the incredible came out, and no issues yet. Since I'm over my 30 day period, will they not fix it if it does blow randomly?

    They should. I've had two blow out past the 30 days and have had no problems getting another one sent to me. I just got the 4th one last week.

    Went to the store today and should have a new phone here tomorrow. If it gets to 4x I am going to demand a different phone, because thats just ridiculous. I did also pester them to replace my screen protector, which they basically did. Credited me the amount of my Steinheil protectors.

    i actually have the same problem and was told by two different tech that its software related?? they said it would be addressed with the 2.2 update and there is a bulletin about it from HTC.

    go figure. i guess i can wait it out otherwise they said they would replace it.

    I was told the same on my last replacement.only way i see them addressing the issue is them putting a limit on the volume with the next update

    Add mine to the list. Almost sounds like it's loose inside the case. I can tap on the case and hear it rattle. I heard they give you a refurb in exchange??

    If you're outside of 30 days, you get a certified like-new replacement, which may or may not have perfectly working used parts inside.
