    I got this phone for my wife and most of the time when she puts me on speakerphone, I can hear my distorted voice echoed in my earpiece. The problem is much worse when she places her phone on soft surfaces like a couch or pillow. I've had her put it on a table and I still get a bit of distorted echoing.

    Has anybody else noticed this issue? I'm wondering if it is a design/hardware issue that is inherent in this model or whether her unit is defective.

    Thanks.

    I think it is a Tmobile isssue, mine does it when I am on 4G with low bars it does not do it on 2G.

    Does the phone have a cover on ?

    No cover whatsoever. I was wondering if it might be a volume issue. I have a Blackberry on 4G and don't seem to get an echoing issue with Tmo's network.

    710 on Rogers.

    Yes I have noticed this. I usually talk on my phone at night and rest it on my pillow on speakerphone. There is a very loud and noticeable echo for the person on the other end.

    This was never a problem on the Samsung Focus.
    BlackBerry Bold 9900 had a slight echo depending on position.

    Nokia 710, the echo is unbearable on the other end. I'm not using a cover and have tried to put the phone in multiple positions and volumes, but it still echos. :mad:

    Ya, i thought it couldn't be a network issue. Not sure if we just have a lemon or if the issue is more widespread on the device. Haven't been able to find much by way of complaints on the web.

    I can say for sure this is a network issue.

    When I call my wife and we both have low bars I get the whine and chirp.

    But when I call her on Skype over WiFi it is crystal clear. If I call her with full bars on 4g it is also clear. I only have the whine and chirp on speaker with low bars.

    We only experienced this when on speakerphone not when using the regular speaker. If you are getting it during regular calls, it might be a network signal strength issue, or try lowering the volume and see if it goes away.
