    hyper sensitive microphone

    Advertisement



    It seems that my 8830 has an extremely sensitive microphone. Everyone I call tells me that they hear even the slightest background noises, to the point of overwhelming the voice. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Thanks.

    Ok, any serious responses? Peter Parker does not have super hearing.

    A lot of people noted this experience with the Verizon 8830.
    So, when I purchased the unit, I downloaded the updated OS, and installed.
    I havent had the first complaint. Matter of fact, my partner said that this phone sounded better than the 8703e I had earlier.

    Thank you justajason, I'll look into that. My device shows 4.2.2.123 at this time.

    I have the same problem. I notice that it is particularly problematical when there is someone talking on my right (I hold the phone in my right hand). I am told that the person on my right sounds louder than I do.

    Any fixes, or is this as good as it gets?

    Try going into [Phone]-Options-Enhanced Audio-"Enable". Worked wonders for my & my wife's VZW 8830s.

    Re: hyper sensitive microphone

    Well, no changes in phone settings seem to help. I looked over on another forum and found that some users have been thru 3 or 4 warranty exchanges before finding a phone that works right. I guess I'll be stopping by Sprint today.

    $500 for a phone and nobody can hear me!

    Well, so far Sprint wants me to fork over $55 for the pleasure of sending it in for WARRANTY SERVICE! RIM says fill out an RMA form and send it to them, it may take 12 days to get it back..... WTF?

    Well, a few weeks with the replacement phone, and it has the same problems. This is getting rediculous!
