    Whenever I use Spotify it starts playing songs with crackling sound. After a little bit, when the song has been fully cached the sound returns to normal. It is also good when I use offline mode.

    Has onyone else the same problem?

    Hmm I've not really noticed this myself. I did have a slight stutter problem but that kinda went away after I'd re-formatted the microSD card with (my new) Milestone. Does the track crackle when you listen on the desktop? Sometimes there are encoding errors on the odd track. I assume it's OK when listening to mp3s with the standard Music player (i.e. not a loose wire on your headphones)

    The problem is not in the song itself, as as soon it is cached on the phone (offline mode) there is no crackling at all.

    Try to play mp3's or listen to spotify and then transfer some files over wifi and you will notice how bad it gets =(

    To me it sounds like an IRQ problem and/or that the hardware audio buffers are to small.
