    I don't know if this is just a cell phone thing because my last phone on Sprint did it too. But when I call in to my voice mail and hear the female voice of the menu system, she is very scratchy. It doesn't matter what volume level I am at either, it's almost as if the sound quality of the VM system is just extremely poor.

    When I use my Droid speaker for other things I don't hear this at all. I watched several movie trailers in high quality on YouTube and turned the volume to max and it was as clear (and loud) as I could ever hope.

    So has anyone else noticed this? I wonder why this occurs?

    I hear it as well. Could be a codec issue on the VM server, or calls to VM maybe not allocated alot of bandwidth. This is my first time on Verizon network, coming from Moto Q and AT&T. Sound quality much better. Personally I think the speakers on the Q (still have) are better than the DROID's.
