    Question call trouble

    Advertisement



    Hello everyone,
    I am new to the whole blackberry thing, I got a 8300 curve for christmas gift and so far I can surf the web, PIN message, instant message, sync it with my pc and install new apps, thems and ringtones with no problem. However, when I go to make a call or receive a call all I hear is a garbled noise that reminds of the sounds of an old dial up modem and the caller on the other end hears that too.

    Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you.

    So far I have tried removing the battery, then I tried removing the battery and the SIM card, then I tried removing the battery the SIM and the sd micro card but to no avail, calls still sound like 'data noise'.

    There could have been a corupted program, but to be honest (you should try reinstalling your Operating System) but considering the device is so new you should go back to the store it was purchased from and let them see it (worst case you get a replacement)

    I just got the 8830 a month ago and I had the same problem. All I did was sync and removed all the apps that stream ota.

    A few min later the noise was gone.

    I added a theme, a couple ringtones and a game. I will try removing these but I think I will end going back to the AT&T place and get another device more than likely...

    When you say 'apps that stream ota' which ones in particular are you referring to?
