Now that you mention it, I do here a slight noise when web pages are loading up. It's VERY faint, and can only be heard when I hold the device close to my ear and there is absolute silence. Probably the processor working to load the page. Not sure if it's normal.

I hear a high pitch sound sometimes when I'm using the phone. For example, if I'm on a phonecall and I press the Green Call button, a very high pitch sound is noticable. Very annoying to me. Is anyone else having this issue?

Not really there so much, but I do notice a slight noise on the home screen when I'm scrolling through the icons. It's only when the text appears for the given icon though. (i.e. - when the 'Browser' text shows up on the screen) When the text fades away, so does the noise. I have to really be listening to notice it though.

So am I to an extent. I'm wondering if I should give AT&T a call. I was thinking that the noises might be commonplace, but if everyone else is chiming in saying they don't hear anything at all, I'm imagining I should check into it before my 30 days are up.

The only thing that concerns me is the idea of receiving a refurb if I exchange the thing. Anyone with experience in the matter know if there is a good chance that they will send out a refurb? Also, if you bought online, do you have to go through the number listed for exchanges, or is it possible to exchange at a local corporate-owned store?

for rogers...if you ordered through regular customer service..u can pickup and or exchange at a store..but i ordered through retention(customer relations) so i do not have that option. in terms of recieving a refurbished one...i'm not sure about that...but my bold was brand new..i think i recieved a refurbished one before( sony ericsson) but other than that..it was all brand new...

wheni called in today, i said..i'm not sure if this is normal or not..but i dont think it is..but i hear noises coming out of my phone..and right away the lady said its not...

Thanks for the info! Looks like I'll be exchanging mine if it's not normal. I just noticed that there are some stuck pixels on my screen as well, which is the icing on the cake in terms of me exchanging for a new one.

I called AT&T and went through the troubleshooting and found out that it is a defect. They are replacing the phone for me. The problem I was having is that it would make this annoying sound anytime the screen was on.
