    Hi there,

    When I play one of the stock ringtones (which, by the way, suck) or stream radio stations, music plays fine. However, I would like to be able to download music to my phone either from my computer or from an app, but every time I try either of those, I hear a popping/dripping noise in the background. It happens both when I preview the song/sound and when I download it, and it doesn't matter where I download them from. I've tried websites, my computer, apps, etc. So frustrating!
    It sounds like it may be a problem with the speakers, like maybe they are having trouble playing certain file types or something, but I haven't the slightes idea why this is. That's just a hunch, though. I know nothing about how phones work.
    Anyone know what might be going on?

    By the way, I don't know if this affects anything, but my phone is rooted now. The popping/dripping began way before I rooted it, though. Just throwing that out there.

    Welcome to Android Forums, msdanibeach.

    Sorry to see you're having sound issues with your Vibrant (I moved the thread to the Vibrant Support area for you). I'm wondering if you've played with the volume levels yet in the menu settings; if they're at maximum, the sound quality could suffer on some types of multimedia files.

    Okay, I tried messing with the volume, but the problem seems unrelated. When I listen to an mp3 in an app for ringtone making, the preview of the song sounds fine. But when I download the song/ringtone, the popping resumes.
