Default Echo Problems on Other Cell Phone - Verizon

Is anyone else having a problem where a person on the other end is hearing an echo? At first, I thought it was my wife's S3 as she heard it talking to me, but I did not hear it on my end.

However, I tried calling myself with my work number and that echoes so I am pretty sure it is my S3. I tried tweaking the volume and everything I could find, but the echo happens in all of my tests on cell phones.

That was the one thing I didn't want to hear and has put a dampener on my S3 as it's currently going through its first charge, not even started using it yet.
It happened on my Galaxy S2, so I switched back to 4S. I believed this would surely not happen again, I'll end up looking for iPhone 5 within a week.

This just killed the deal for another Samsung on VZW.

Charge had problems that could be reproduced on a call every single time.

Galaxy Nexus had horrible call quality (like bitrate was cut in 1/2 over a moto phone).

And now the latest Samsung on VZW, they still can't get voice calls right. Everyone was hoping that this would be the phone that Samsung finally gets right. Guess we will have to wait for the next gen S4 to see if they get it!

I have a Verizon tech calling me back today, probably will switch out my phone and SIM card now to see if it fixes it.

My wife's works fine on her end with other Cell Phones, maybe I just got a bad one.

I'm noticing a slight echo of myself (kind of like the Muppet Babies hearing adults, a whomp whomp type echo, hard to explain haha), but only when talking to someone on another S3. When I talk to friends with different phones, it's crystal clear and sounds like I'm standing right next to them. I'm trying to figure out the reason this is happening.

I've not heard anyone having issues hearing me but i did briefly hear myself (not bad at all) on a call for a split second. There also seemed to be some delay. Think the user was in cali. Im in jersey. Not sure if they were on IP phone or not. Work related.

Keep you guys updated, I'm sending my Galaxy S3 back. One X or iPhone 5 look to be my real alternatives.
As well as problems with echo calling, my screen has broke and at the bottom left corner of the phone my outer frame has cracked.
From the quality of The Galaxy S2, why have Samsung done this? I was confident with my S2, with my S3 it's been like carrying a china cup around.
I'll wait to see what iPhone 5 looks like and if the HTC One X has sorted any battery problems out before making a decision.
I've got my money back off the S3, just no phone at the moment.

Default noise reduction

I just turned off noise reduction on my Galaxy S3 and this seems to be working. Thanks for the tip!
