Default 8120 Poor Call Quality?

Please Login to Remove!


Hopefully you can help....have recently got my first BlackBerry, an 8120 to use as my personal phone and on the whole after a few days I feel I am finally getting the hang of it!

The only downside....and it's a pretty annoying one is that the call quality is the poorest of any phone I have ever had! It seems odd as all the reviews say how good it is? The sound is muffled and there is a high pitched noise in the background thats there most of the time and is really distracting. Also if you turn the volume much above 2 or 3 you can hear the speaker moving with the bass which is also quite distracting? Have tried adjusting the 'Enhance Call Audio' option and tried to enhance the treble which works a little with the bass only but nothing else and it's not much though!

Im not sure if its just me as I have had Sony Ericsson phones previously so perhaps its just a characteristic of Blackberry?!?!?!

Am running the latest software version after upgrading it yesterday and it made no difference so any help, advice or anything would be greatly appreciated!
