    I looked around and really cont find an answer to this...

    I love 2.1 but now my phone barely works to make calls. I can make a call, but then if I try to make another, the phone will just go black. The other person says they can hear me, but I hear nothing.

    Is there a fix other than shutting off the phone after every call????

    I hate the Dialer and People in 2.1 with Sense. I use the app Home Switcher to use the generic Home instead of Sense. Now I can use the phone as a phone and actually call people without thinking that my phone crashed.

    I reported this within a day of the leak and there's still no fix. It doesn't even have to be a phone call, if the phone just sits there (not even sure what triggers it) the speaker craps out. So I can see the screen and the trackball flashing when a call comes in, but no ringtone and no voice. I don't think the microphone works either.

    The temporary fix is to restart the phone. Remember, the 2.1 we have is essentially a beta and this is one of the bugs. It's one of the risks you absorb by upgrading an official ROM.

    Even after reflashing it does this? Mine talks fine I just have to be very careful of apps. Seems a lot of them don't like 2.1 sense or something. Wavesecure spiked my awake time today for instance.
