    Very disappointed in this phone so far. Everyone complains about the voice quality

    I have tried switching the the -4 and the 13k mode, after about 3 hours, both make me sound tiny and muffled to the receiver.

    Should I try and switch this out for a new droid, or are all droids a POS like the one I got?

    Best sound quality of any phone I have ever owned

    I think the vast majority of owners, and most all reviewers I have read feel as I do. My Droid has the best sound quality of any phone I have owned. You may want to try to set your phone to EVRC-B. This seems to help a lot of others that are having issues. If you truly believe the Droid is a POS, I'd stop into an AT&T store for a new phone.

    Stop *****ing and get something else! Mine works great, but maybe it isn't for you. Far be it from me to attempt to change your mind.

    When I got mine I put a screen protector on right away. I thought the sound was no good until I realized I had the screen protector over the speaker hole.
    check the simple stuff first. I had Blackberry's until this phone and the Droid is better.

    You always have 30 days to return it. I like mine though.

    I dont get the replies?? maybe it isnt for me? It is the people that I speak with that complain. EVERY SINGLE person. And switching it to EV whatever does not work.

    I hope I just have a bad phone and will return for a new Droid, btu after reading it seems as if tons of people have this problem

    *228 option 2, try changing voice privacy settings and if that fails take it back.


    Good luck

    Ok thanks.

    Well I am glad to see that other people have working Droids and that mine may be a lemon.

    Will be changing for a new one tomorrow

    Good luck with your second Droid.

    Getting the phone part of it right should've been their first priority, but it could also be coverage. Hope the second one works for you

    This may be ridiculous but do you perhaps have a case or protector that's inadvertently blocking the mic area? Not being snarky or a smartass, but I've had friends with other phones and cases that blocked the mic area...

    The cases blocking the mic happened to me with my BB Storm. Couple days of aggravation before i put 2 and 2 together :)

    You might've had lint or something in the microphone hole on the phone. I had that happen with my Droid. People were complaining they couldn't hear me but this was after several days of great voice quality!

    alas, you may just have a lemon... exchange and enjoy :)

    I thought it could be the case as well, which I removed and still had the same problem.

    And to those saying its the best sound quality ever, remember I am talking about on the receiver end.

    And, the reason I started to panic is because I googled the problem and it seems like everyone and their mother is having the exact same problem as I am to a T.

    Other people have noticed the same problem with my calls as well. Very tinny, and not as clear as my enV. Regardless, the people on the other end can still hear me. And since I only use the phone to make actual calls 10% of the time, I'll deal.
