    Does everyone else have to hold their phone up against their face in order for the mic to pick up their voice well? I constantly get people complaining they can barely here me over the phone. When i press the phone against my face (uncomfortable) i don't have this problem. Any thoughts / suggestions?
    Thanks,
    Dan

    I must agree, i do not think there is one time where i had a call where someone did not say "you sound like your so far away" or they hear echos. That is a major flaw for me so far, im hoping this update will fix that, i think something is listed about that on the list of updates.

    I've had no problems, but this does seem to vary a bit between phones.

    this is my second phone, the first one did everything wrong,the new one has been great except people not being about to hear me well, do you think it could have something to do with the body glove case?

    i'm pretty sure it's not from your case. however, mine is naked. i believe it has to do with the mic hardware and it's physical location on the phone. anyone have any other ideas of what settings can be tweaked to minimize this problem?
    thanks

    Today I have seen three threads on this same problem and one of them is mine haha. We need a MOD to consolidate these! I just got my replacement droid for power cycling issues and I am now having this problem. Never had it with my previous one! I am going to test out after *228 tonight and see how it goes...even though I really do not see this fixing the problem

    I think our problem might have to do with the voice privacy setting. Give it a try. Seems to have helped me
