    I finally figured what was causing an echo to the person on the other end when I use speakerphone. It's my case!!! I have the hard plastic case with holster that they sell at Verizon Wireless (I am not sure who makes it). As soon as I take the back part of the case off of the phone, the caller no longer hears an echo when they speak. As soon as I put it back on they hear it again. I noticed that this case covers some of the speaker bar, would that cause the issue? Or is there some sort of microphone on the back that I am covering? I am stumped as to why the case would cause this issue. I really like the case and I am not sure if I can even return it anymore. I also would like to know who makes it so I can contact the manufacturer.

    Is there a hole in the case where the noise canceling mic is located? (shown here)

    There is no hole. Do you think that is what is causing the problem?

    It well may be. I got a cheap eBay case, which fits well. I haven't used the speakerphone, but I did drill a small hole there. It apparently doesn't have to be very large - the factory hole is quite small, and the air path to the mic isn't straight.

    Interesting thread. I'd think that VZW might be interested in knowing that a case they're selling in their stores produces a speakerphone echo.

    Guys -

    I've been trying to get a GV invites forever.

    If you have an extra, could you spare one?

    Hope you actually requested one from Google. Mine took about 3 weeks to be fulfilled. If you've been waiting "forever" try putting in another request.
