There is no static on the 7100t provided you use OS 3.8. I have the 7100t with OS 3.8 and love it. I had the 7290. For me the 7100t is much better but I agree the audio is not as good as the 7290 althought the 7100t with OS 3.8 seems to be louder than the 7290.
Basically, it's six of one and half a dozen of the other.
Apparently, there are new Blackberries coming out soon so I would wait. One is an update of the 7100 (the 7130?) and the other an update of the 7200 series (the 8700 or "Electron").
Jibi: As you can see, here is another report of static on the 7100.
