Voice calls breaking up

    I'm listened to some voicemails I left calling from my Boost Hydro Icon.
    I was shocked, the audio is completely broken up, every other syllable dropped.
    I tried speakerphone, bluetooth headset and handset and they all sound the same.
    Basically people can't hear me but I can hear them.

    I read that the Smart Sonic Receiver is both the speaker and microphone, is this correct?
    If so I suspect it's not ready for primetime.

    I notice I only get one or two bars from my home. I've done the PRL update but still bad dropouts.
    Is my phone defective or does it sound like the signal?

    Pressure on the screen causes distortion in every microphone use. Most likely the distortion your holding the phone with your ear and shoulder. Try using a hand instead, a headset was my solution. I use my phone for work.
