    I just upgraded (though I use the term loosely) from a Droid 2 to a D2 Global, and like many users have been experiencing TERRIBLE call quality. I could hear people fine, even with just 1 or 2 bars of service, but they were having a very difficult time hearing me.

    A search through many of these forums lead me to the so-called "Secret Menu" which unfortunately is different for us D2G users. I did some searching, and I think I found where you can change the setting from EVRC to EVRC-B, which has been suggested as a good fix for poor call quality.

    Pull up the dialer on your phone
    Dial ##PROGRAM (##7764726)
    Hit Send (the call button)
    The password is 000000 (six zeros)
    Select "Option 6 - Test Mode"
    Hit "Next" until you come to the "Field test screen"
    Under "Service Option" (top most), select EVRC-B
    Hit "Back"
    The phone should then reboot and you'll be all set.

    I have not yet noticed a big difference, but my apartment is a veritable deadzone anyway, so I need to try from a more reliable location.

    I also have read in some other posts that not all markets support EVRC-B so if you find you can't make calls, or they're worse, follow the steps to undo it.

    Most of what I've posted is a repost of others, I just was excited to have perhaps stumbled upon the hidden menu of the hidden menu.

    Post replies if it works for you.
