    As I wait impatiently for 2.1 I have been more and more bothered by a buzzing in the ear piece. I saw a couple posts on this but they seem to be talking about the external speaker. Mine is the ear-piece, and it seems to go away when I turn the volume down. Could the speaker be blown? I'm still under warranty but I wonder if this is a common problem?

    Mine is a refurb, but it works just fine. Haven't ever heard of a beep or click. The one I had replaced would crackle horribly.

    I'm guessing the phone has a manufacturer warranty, but not from Verizon since I didn't get it from them. Can someone please help? It seems to be getting worse.

    Sounds like I'll have to make a stop at the Verizon store. I hope that they have made some improvements since I did not get the insurance on it.

    As far as not getting it from verizon, you may have to contact HTC. I'm not really sure about that one, but I'd say it's definitely worth a shot. Or you might call verizon and just ask what your options are.

    Crazy timing on this thread, mine started doing this out of the blue last night for seemingly no reason. Good to know I'm not alone I guess :)

    i figured (for the hell of it) that i would take some compressed air and blow the sh!t of of te earpiece speaker. Problem solved! i dont get the buzzing anymore. maybe you should try the same. now i just have to call Verizon and cancel my replacement.

    Tried blowing it out, no help. Took it in to the Verizon store and they are having a new phone mailed to me. I hope this doesn't show up in the new phone.

    Just to follow up I didn't even have to get canned air. I have a Rocket Blower that I use to clean out my cameras (rubber bulb-like thing that you squeeze with your hand in case anyone isn't familiar with it), knocked the problem out pretty quickly.
