I have looked and maybe I have not used the right words, but have not found answers. I have static noise in my ear only when I talk on the phone. No problem with Pandora or any other features, only phone calls. Does not matter who I am talking with. I have changed phones. The first Galaxy had horrible static noise. The second just a bit, but still enough to distract me. I have used the Samsung ear phones/hands free set that came with the phone. No static, but a faint buzz. Is this standard? I can't think it would be.
