Hi, I was hoping I would never have to post here but here I am. I have been reading up on my issue and am hoping its a software thing but i doubt it at this point. Basically if my speakers are initialized at all i hear static in everything and this static goes on for about three seconds after there is no sound, then makes a pop noise as like the power is cut from the physical speaker. i also constantly here this in intervals in phone calls, on the ear piece. What i'm wondering is do you think an SBF would be my best bet to try to fix this? Also what is the normal warranty period on the droid 3 when bought through Verizon?
