    I got a fru X that when on a call distorts if the volume is higher than medium. Is this normal or a defect?

    I had the same problem, but I went digging around on here. I found a guy who hit his earpiece with a shot of canned air, said he hasn't had problems since. I tried it over 4 weeks ago (2 days after I had the phone) and it does work. No problems since.

    There is no reason to get it replaced as your next 1 may do it also. It is a very easy fix. Mine did this also and I fixed it in one minute.

    The canned air works! Actually I used a nozzle on my air compressor at low pressure, maybe 40 psi.

    Might as well fix it than have to fix the next one.

    Trust me it works.

    I just got this new X a few days ago and no way in heck was I going to put up with a buzzing speaker. Right off the thing was horrible and I thought I would have to return it.

    I did a search and saw the compressed air idea. I was skeptical but got my compressor out when I got home.

    Bingo it was fixed!
