    My new Bionic has the headphone whining problem that has been well-documented. I am within Verizon's 14 day window to switch this phone for another. I have also seen lots of people claim that the leaked .893 firmware fixes this problem. However, many people I know who are knowledgeable about electronics are shocked--shocked--to hear the whining could be fixed with software.

    So tell me, dear experts, is such a fix even POSSIBLE? If it is, then I'll stay wedded to the Bionic and hope for it to be fixed in the official .893 release. Otherwise, I might be forced to jump ship, although I'd be pretty sad about it.

    Oy, that can go either way. It could be a soft problem, could be a hard problem. I'm going with hardware problem. They may have found a way to fix it though.

    Swyped and sent through the interwebz directly to you from somewhere and some device that doesn't concern you!

    I have the leaked update 5.7.893. I had the headphone problem before the update and now it's fixed. Definitely a software bug.
