    Has anyone else noticed a slight buzz in the earpiece of the phone during a phone call. Like when the other person speaks? If so have you contacted vZW about it?

    yeah over on AndroidForums there is a few people having the same issue. I was trying to poll everyone over here as well.

    mine happens about 90% of the time when the other person speaks. So there is a few instances where it doesn't. However it shouldn't be happening at all.

    My first Droid X did this so bad, I returned the phone on the spot and the Verizon guy replaced it. He agreed it was really bad. My new Droid X is pretty good, every once in a while I get this buzzing. Seems to depend on the caller. I guess motorola is using a less-than-perfect speaker.

    At least I am not the only one. I get it when the other person is speaking if i have the speaker turned up high. but if i lower it below 50% or so it seems to help a lot.

    Is this something they can fix? Who should i alert about it if so because you would think phone call clarity would be important.

    My X had the same problem from Day 1 (7-15). I took a compressed air duster canister and gave a couple of quick shots into the earpiece and it solved the problem and I haven't had an issue since. You might try that.

    Ditto on the buzz

    Reducing the volume alleviated the buzz, but that's not a proper solution to the problem. I'm about to call Verizon to arrange a replacement.

    Got my replacement phone yesterday b/c of this issue. The new one is great--no buzzing that I can detect even on the highest volume level.

    That is good to know. I've avoided using mine on high volume. I may try it to see if it has gotten any better and if not i might just try to get a replacement.

    The buzzing was slightly less problematic after a week of use, but it was still pretty bad--especially for a brand new phone. You should just go ahead and get it replaced; it's not the kind of thing that will fix itself.

    I have the same issue from the fist day, 7/15

    I'm glad to find this topic here. I felt kinda bad cause I was thinking if I were the only one who had this buzz noise.. I guess there are many users like me. It doesn't happen always, but it's there. I might go ask Verizon if I can get a replacement. I'm paying an insurance every month. Hope they don't charge me anything for replacing this. Can I get a brand new Droid X though? or it's going to be refurbished one..
