    My wife's Hero is stock and she said she just lost the audio on the phone. I know there are issues with this on rooted ROM'd phones but hers is stock. Any ideas??

    The same thing happened to me last night. I placed the call, and about 5 minutes in, I couldn't hear the other person, and they couldn't hear me, but the phone indicated we were still connected. I placed teh cal again, and it was fine for the remainder , about 15 minutes. I am using an Airave device, and my Hero is not rooted, Stock 1.5.

    I know there is an issue with the airwave devices, but we don't have one.....She has to reboot to get the sound back

    Yeah, the Airave may not have anything to do with it, as I have had it since August, and the Hero since October...this is the first time this has happened, and it didn't require a reboot. I figured it was just a fluke, until I saw your post...

    Has it happened more than once? :thinking: Sorry, thats all I have to add... Hopefully someone else will have a suggestion.

    For some. I have tried Fresh 2.0d twice now with the Fresh audio fix and the eris audio fix and I still get my speaker and mic failing during calls. It took only minutes before and after the fresh fix and about a week after the eris fix. I reflashed the fix and the audio dropped again after a couple minutes so I reflashed again and it has worked for a good 12 hours now. This is a major problem that can obviously happen with 2.1 so I don't mind if Sprint waits to release the official update after a real fix has been put into place.

    I flashed fresh after a complete wipe and no audio problem now. I didn't have to do the audio fix.

    i have fresh rom 1.1 with gumbo kernel......this happened to me the other day. i rebooted the phone and it fixed it. i have another thread with a list of problems i have had with the phone - this is one of them. i know there are some known problems with this and 2.1 roms, but i'm starting to get the impression that this is an intermittant Hero problem in general no matter what rom you're on.

    I've started to notice that I lose audio whenever I call my wife or she calls me. She is the only person I talk to frequently who is on the Sprint network. I spent a couple hours talking on the phone with a Verizon user, land line and Google voice number without any issues and then when I tried to call my wife, it goes silent. Don't know if anyone else is seeing this happen this way.
