Android : Phone Making Loud Shrill Noise / Way To Fix

Jun 13, 2010

When I make a call everyone is telling me that they are hearing a loud shrill sound but I hear nothing so I went to Verizon to get an exchange since I have the insurance. They checked my phone out and said it should be exchanged but when they tried to exchange it they said there was none in the store and none even at their warehouse and they had no idea when they would get more. I'm wondering if that is because of the new Android phones coming out.

So if I have to get another phone I want to be prepared to make a decision. Any thoughts on another Android phone? I absolutely love my Droid and hope they will be able to get more in so I can exchange mine. But if I can't I would want one just like the Droid as far as a physical keyboard and also I like the amount of memory. And I want the freedom I have with the Droid to install anything I want. It's the first phone Verizon hasn't locked down.

Anyway hopefully I can keep my Droid but as I said I just want some ideas in case they don't get any more Droids in stock. Oh one last question, I was talking to an ex Verizon employee who insisted that the Droid won't accept a 32GB card. Is this correct?

Motorola Droid 2 :: Super Loud Noise When Using Speaker Phone Function

Nov 3, 2010

My wife has a Droid2 and when she uses the speaker phone function, things sound fine on her end, but for the caller on the other end, there is an unbearably loud noise of them speaking. For instance, when I call her and she has me on speaker, I can hear myself speaking super loud coming out of her phone. I can't even concentrate to get my sentence out. Has anyone else had this problem or heard of it? She is using a hard snap on case from Verizon as well, not sure if it could be the sound bouncing of that or something?

Samsung Moment :: Phone Started Making Creaking Noise

Nov 21, 2009

I've had my Moment for 2 weeks now and love it. However, this morning I noticed something new. When I press down on the bottom left corner of the screen (home button vicinity) I get a creaking sound. I get the sound pretty much every time I press down on any part of the bottem left 1/4 of the screen. I do not get this sound when the keyboard is pulled out, so it's coming from some play between the phone and the keyboard. My wife has the same phone and does not have this problem. I'm curious to know if anyone else has developed this creaking noise. Anyone getting this sound?

HTC Desire :: Minimum Volume For Media Is Still Too Loud

Aug 26, 2010

I'm a brand new HTC Desire user, and on the advice of some friends I've installed Meridian media player and Audiomanager (among other apps, of course). The problem I have is that the minimum volume for media is still too loud for me while listening to music at work. Is there any way I could say, lower the overall volume of the phone? Secondly, what kind of app can people suggest as an equalizer for adjusting bass/treble etc?

Android : Alarm Clock - Extra Loud

Feb 8, 2010

I am a very HEAVY sleeper and the old beep doesn't work for me. I have tried just about every alarm clock that says "Extra" Loud. Though all they do is beep and music generally doesn't work. Though the palm centro had a alarm that if I set the 5 alarms and had them playing each 32x times per alarm as loud as possibly set apart 5 min. by the end of the 25 min of alarms I could manage to hopefully get up. The tone was called treo for those of you that possibly know that tone on the palm os. The only way that I can think of to describe it, was a bell that rang and it hurt your ear drums like it made your ear twinge if that makes sense. So is there an alarm on the market place that could possibly be this irritating or possibly worse?

HTC Incredible : MP3 As Ringtone Volume - Loud Coming Out Of Speaker

I put some MP3s on my Inc and the audio player plays them fine and they're pretty loud coming out of the speaker.

Now, I took one of those MP3s and set it as my ring tone. I turned the ringtone volume all the way up and when I got a call, it's like half the volume as it played as an MP3.

Why do I lose so much volume? Is there any way to make that louder?

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Ringer Is Not Very Loud Even On Maximum

Apr 2, 2010

Well, not very impressed. Picked up the X10 from The Carphone Warehouse yesterday, but only had a chance to play with it today.

Negatives
1) Text entry is very slow. It clearly registers the key stroke, but it takes a while for the letter to appear on the screen.
2) Keyboard doesn't allow a "long press" to enter numbers and other characters. That is a pain.
3) Definitely missing the pinch to zoom.
4) When writing this thread, I repositioned the cursor to the middle of the test and it took me an age to get the cursor back down to the bottom; just wouldn't let me do it. Something that was so simple on the Hero.......
5) Ringer is not very loud even on maximum.
6) Camera light is completely manual and can only be toggled through the menu; not ideal if trying to take a picture quickly in low light. Why they didn't have an auto 'flash' option is beyond me!

Positives
1) Large screen is a noticeable improvement over the Hero's smaller one.
2) Camera seems good, other than not having a flash (it's a 'light').
3) Stylish looking unit; in my opinion, the best looking phone out there right now, which was my main reason for buying it!

Overall, it's just not as easy to navigate as the HTC Hero. I know I was used to the Hero, but there are things that I feel I just won't get comfortable with on the X10. I really want to like this phone, but fear that the stylish looks, good camera and Timescape / Mediascape are just not enough to compete with HTC's latest, based on my experience with the Hero and specification of the Desire.I would definitely hold out for the Desire if anybody is torn between these two! Luckily I have another phone on contract with O2 which is due an upgrade, so once they release the Desire, it's gonna replace this X10!

HTC Desire :: Low Media Volume Settings - Music Too Loud On Headphones?

May 5, 2010

I've had the Desire for about 3 weeks now and it's a brilliant phone. However, quite often I listen to music from my Desire through my headphones to help me get to sleep. Unfortunately though, the lowest media volume setting is too loud through my headphones. It's seems to be either a choice of no music (i.e media volume turned to zero) or the next level up (which is too loud). Is there anyway to get a volume in between the two? I've tried apps such as AudioManager but to no avail

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 : Ear Piece Ringtone Volume Is Not Very Loud

I have just purchased my X10 no more than a day ago and find that when talking to someone the ear piece volume is not very loud. I have set the volume setting to max and its still very faint and hard to hear. 

I also find the Ring Tone Volume is not very loud, even after setting it to max. I have confirmed the Firmware is the latest version, just as a process of elimination.

Has anyone else experienced this? Or could be that I have a faulty handset?

HTC EVO 4G :: Battery Life In 4G Areas / Loud Ringers To Easily Hear At Busy Places

May 24, 2010

Two questions:

1) After reading several reviews, it seems that in 4G areas/use the battery lasts about a half to full day. This is very concerning to me especially since I'm in a 4G area and would like to take advantage of it. Has anyone had experience with the phone in a 4G market and used 4G heavily in 1 day?

2) Are the ringers loud in addition to the speakerphone? Can you hear the phone ring at its highest setting on a busy street? I had an iphone 1st gen and even with the ringer at its highest volume, I'd miss a lot of calls.
