    Since upgrading to 2.0.1 sometimes I can't hear the caller but I'm pretty sure they can here me.

    If I put it on speaker phone it works fine or if I restart it will work regularly for some time.

    Anyone know what the problem is ?

    Weird though because it never happened until after the manual install to 2.0.1

    That is a a new one. Did you remove the battery and reboot before you went to store?

    It happened to me after the update as well. Verizon gave me a new phone. I'd suggest getting a new one if you are within your thirty days.

    Everyday Occurrence

    I too am having this problem. It never occurred until I updated to 2.01. The only way to solve the problem is to completely turn the phone off and then back on. Like the other postings, the speakerphone is the only way to communicate with the caller when this occurs.

    HELP! This is unacceptable.

    I've also had this problem. What I have to do is turn the speaker phone on and then turn it back off. I can usually hear the caller, but it is so quiet that I can barley make it out.

    I've had intermittant times with hearing my wife, I attribute 50% to her being on BT to her Nuvi and how well that is connected, the other 50% is me just drifting off during the conversation hehehehe ....

    This happened to me once as well. Turning the phone off and on fixed the issue; I'd been playing around with it pretty heavy for a while, particularly pulling it in and out of the car dock a bunch of times, so I figured that somehow caused the problem. Either that or the fact that I'd been charging it with an AC inverter and USB cable, which played havoc with the touch screen, and maybe the phone, too. Haven't seen it but just the one time.

    I am not sure if this is what you are looking for or not...I was having the same problem and I downloaded the app volume control...it has an in-call volume control...no problems after I installed

    Just happened to me today. Just started using some new bluetooth headphones so I thought they were the cause. Powered off...then on, and it is working again....thus far at least.

    Have tracked the issue on my phone to be everytime I plug something in the headphone jack (headphones, aux cable to stereo) it happens. simple restart fixes it. hopefully the next OTA update will cure this

    I have been able to reproduce this about 50% of the time by taking a phone call while listening to music with headphones (not a headset) and then removing the headphones after the call ended. I can't reproduce it every time though. Seems like a software bug to me...any one else have a similar experience?

    I had it happen today. I was connected to the computer with the USB cable at the time. I wasn't using headphones.

    As the person who started this thread... I believe it's a hardware issue.. I went to Verizon and they gave me a new one no question and haven't had the problem since. I use headphones all the time and switch them out constantly.

    As an ELM Engineer who works with this type of hardware frequently, I find hardware problems 95% of the time result in complete failure. It is more likley the the software engineers who customized the software, didn't anticipate such a large tolerance in the hardware. Often the SE's start off with one set of hardware in the prototype only to end up with a few "comparable" alternative components.

    In any case, I can say with all likleyhood that a software patch could fix this if they are aware of the problem.
