    My sister and I both received refurbed Droids today after each going through 3 Eris's....now both of us when we make a call the person on the other end cannot hear us but we can hear them. Has anyone else had this problem at all? Haven't done much digging on the Droid side of the forums since we just got them today after having an Eris.

    Thanks in advance

    It is not a problem with the phone. It has to do with the noise cancelation built into the phone, to kill background noise. The problem is, you have to hold the phone correctly or else YOUR voice gets cancelled out! Make sure your holding your phone against your face, with the bottom pointing directly towards your mouth. If you try holding the phone with your shoulder, it will cause the issue also!

    HAHA yea, I guess it does a little. I have always been an Apple fan, but that issue was a BIG oversight. Maybe they could start selling 'iGloves'... that way your hands wont touch the antennas lol.

    On my phone it is hit or miss and my sisters phone it is all the time...VZW said it is all a software problem and an update is coming...her only solution was to give us each a headset to use to talk on the phone. Does anyone know if this is a software problem or is it a flukey hardware problem.
