The hiss (like the sound of a tea kettle) would start at the beginning of a call and would often coincide with complaints that I sounded too soft during if it was an outgoing calls or I would have the same problem during incoming calls. It was becoming quite a nuisance. I put off exchanging it because I read similar complaints and Verizon said the issue would be fixed with the 2.0.1 update in December. I has misunderstood them. The problem that was addressed was apparently the music player causing some hissing/feedback.
Today I finally tried reprogramming my phone. An exhcnage is a frightening thing considering I have hours of customization poured into my Droid as well as over 80 apps. I am pleased to say I have yet to have any hissing issues! Hooray!
If you have this problem you can give this a try:
- Go to your phone dialer and enter ##PROGRAM then Call
- Enter 000000 for the code and hit Verify
- Select option 04 VOCODE
- Change the option to EVRC-B and press Apply
- Press your Home button to exit
- Let your phone restart
Note: Do not mess with any other options or you might brick your phone. I am not responsible for any mishaps.
