    IDK if anybody else has done this yet, but I have already somehow managed to bust the external speaker on the back. It is horrible. Just wondering if anyone else has done this yet. :-(

    How did you bust it? Because if it just blew for sound, that will most def be covered by the MFG warranty.

    I think I know how I busted it. I downloaded an Air Horn App and was like HAHA check this out and was showing some friends. Then about 5 mins later I got a text and noticed my alert sounded distorted and sure enough the speaker is blown. I currently have one on backorder as a replacement because my screen has dust under it and the camera always crashes. So its not too big of a deal for me. But still I didnt think the air horn would bust the speaker, it really not that loud.

    I have the air horn app and have used it at maximum volume. I think your speaker shorting out due to software should be covered by your warranty.

    I had that air horn for like 2 minutes, uninstalled it :p

    At least you can beat this one up a little since you already have a replacement on the way :)

    Before you send it though, do a factory reset (duh) and see if the speaker works after that.

    Yeah I was wondering if for some odd reason the factory reset would solve the problem. But ill do that after I recive my new phone. Just thought I would point out to others to be carefull with this app. I used it before with no problem, but after the last time is when my speaker messed up. I Have not dropped the phone or anything, and Im not saying 100% that the Air Horn busted it. It just so happens that is when it started to sound busted, and it gets worse every day. But like I said I already have a replacement coming, just thought I would share with everyone else that I have already managed to bust the speaker lol. I love this phone but man I have had problems with it from day one. Random reboot problem, camera always crashes, dust under the screen, and now this.

    Several nights ago I was staying out of town and didn't have the comfy hum of my computer to lull me to sleep. So I downloaded a white noise app to play rain sound while I slept. It was playing fairly loud, and nonstop for about 8 hours. My speaker still sounds fine. Strange that some are having problems.
