    Yes! I hear like an old modem sound, like i can hear the data transfer. Do we believe this to be isolated to a small number of handsets or a problem for all?

    yeah, thats the sound! I see im not the only one. Im exchanging my phone today at the verizon corp store. Some idiot cust serv rep told me on the phone last night that theres a $35 restick fee. Hung u and called back and got through to a rep that knew what they were talking about. Theres no fee if your exchanging for the same phone within your 14 days.

    I heard the hum in my car speakers through the bluetooth and thought it was just a bad connection. Then I heard the same hum on a different call. Haven't payed attention when using the handset, but will probably be looking for it now...

    Yeah, I get a slight humming sound over bluetooth in my car. However, the handset and the speaker on the handset are crystal clear. Contemplating swapping out. It's really not bad enough that it is bothersome, but it's noticible when the other person is quiet.

    Yes, i commented about poor call quality when I first got my phone but no one else said anything. I wonder if it's just a select few handsets.

    Mine is bad over the Bluetooth for calls. Both the earpiece and speakerphone are fine.

    Music over Bluetooth is flawless.

    I would imagine that this can be fixed easily. My Thunderbolt had some quality issues on some songs which were fixed with different roms/kernels.

    Yes, all streaming audio or downloaded music/podcasts are clear. No distortion behind it like the calls. Although I've just determined that putting the bluetooth volume halfway down, and the car audio slightly higher reduces the noise on calls.

    I might give a custom rom a quick try just to test out the BT to see if it is indeed just a software issue. There is still time to swap if need be. Also going to try out the half volume solution. I would hate to swap and have a phone with other issues.
