    I have solved the issue in case anyone runs into this...

    I put a tiny tiny tube of paper in the microphone hole... It has to be roughly 2mm in length.. You can use a black piece of paper to make it hard to see...

    I had a small feeling that there was a high amount of echoeing in the hole of the microphone port cuz when it would squeal on speakerphone, I was able to stop it by partially covering the microphone hole..

    Good luck. I'd prefer THAT fix to the paper long-term.

    Does it feedback all the time while on speakerphone or just sometimes?

    I use my speaker phone a good bit and I can not remember getting feedback on any of my Blackberrys

    Without the paper... It squeals like 90% of the time... I can get it to stop by laying it flat... Or covering the mic hole...

    With the paper... Its like 10% of the time...

    I say percentages cuz if I hold it randomly while I walk/doing things... At certain angles.. Thereis no squeal...

    I have had the same problem ever since I changed to the black bezel and upgraded to the 214. I think it is less with the 215. I do not know if it is the bezel or the two firmware 214 and 215. I have tried all the available beta and official firmware. The only ones with this is the 214 and 215.

    I do not believe it is hardware unless the black bezel is the problem.

    This issue has come out only recently.

    I had the same problem. Here's the fix. Take a look at your silver bezel. There are two mesh screens in the silver bezel that need to be moved to the black bezel. There is a fine mesh screen covering the narrow hole on the top, and over the tiny microphone hole on the bottom. I looked with a flashlight and a magnifying glass to see them. Both need to be moved to the black bezel.

    The microphone screen comes out pretty easily, the mesh on the top hole is very delicate and tough to get out without ripping. I used a straight pin, flashlight, and a magnifying glass. Work around the edges, it will come out in one piece. Whatever glue is left on the screen will hold it just fine in the black bezel.

    here are some tips...

    imagine trying to take a sticker off a plate without ripping it... u would work the edges and slowly go around... its pretty hard.. but in the case with the screen mesh... u have a hole on the other side... use the hole to your ADVANTAGE... for the thinner top screen mesh... i used my tweezers and pushed into the mesh (outside the bezel INTO hole to the mesh) this flexed the material to the point where it looked like it might even rip... but it didnt... while u have the material flexed... THEN work the edges with something like a pin/needle... u will be able to "cut" the gummy material MUCH easier... the hardest part should be holding the flexed material in place... once u have one side of either screen mesh piece, then u can pull the lifted area with the tweezer to fully removed the mesh from the bezel...
    torched!
