    Does anyone have the same issue?
    I can hear my own voice/breathing noise during call (wind noise when outdoor), which is very annoying.

    But I don't have this problem when I am using Skype or other VOIPs

    Thank you very much

    I have this issue! I am using the third Lumia920 (first one bought on the day it was released and exchanged in couple of days and second one exchanged through AT&T warranty division for third one). All of the phones had/has issue with this and its frustrating. Today, the representative from AT&T warranty division called to see if I had received my third phone and she asked me 'are you outside in breeze?' I said "if you could hear that its ok, but if I am also hearing it, its a problem!". Not sure if it's the AT&T network or the handset? If I sit in the car and turn the AC/Heater on, the blow of wind through the vent can be heard on the phone! Strange, never happened with any of my old phone!
    I am confused! I want Lumia 920, but if this problem is not fixed, I am going away from Nokia for the rest of my life. I feel sad if I do that, but I need to move on!

    When the iPhone had problems with reception Apple said they were holding the phone wrong, so Apple's solution to your problem would probably be you should stop breathing.

    I have not had the problem you describe.

    Well if one of the phones had that issue it's understandable! This is the third phone I have got in last 15 days and each had the same problem. I tried reducing the volume as low as 5 and things remain the same. Reset the phone, changed the simcard and restarted the phone, but no use! The most annoying thing is, if I have to take a call while in car, I need to turn the heater/ac off as the air blow from vents can be heard on the earset. Not sure if it has to do with the ****ty AT&T network or the phone itself?
    And, I don't face this problem on every call, rather sometime when I am in crowded place, like yesterday I was in mall and today I attended a call in football stadium. So I am kind of confused! I love Nokia and love my Lumia 920, hope they can fix it.

    If you are using a headset then it's a feature. I personally love it.



    You see, when you use an in-ear stereo headset, your ears feel clogged and because you can't hear yourself like you normally do, you tend to overcompensate by talking louder. What this feature does is that it allows you to hear yourself so that you can talk in a more natural way. I think it's great. Now, if you have the mic to close to your mouth then yes, you will get the extra breathing sound. Just don't put it to close to your mouth and you'll be ok.
