Post Solution - Speaker Phone Feedback

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Everyone,

I had just replaced my stock silver bezel with a black one on the Bold. After I installed it, there was an extreme amount of feedback (high-pitch noise) coming from the speaker phone. So much, that it was pretty much unusable.

I had a closer look at the inside of the stock bezel and found that there are 2 tiny mesh screens glued to it - one at the top by the speaker, and one at the bottom by the mic.

They are VERY fine and practically invisible.
I disassembled my Bold and was able to "transplant" them to my new bezel using a pair of fine tweezers and pressed them in place, as the adhesive was still on the screens.

I put it back together, and Voila! No more feedback!

I would imagine that if even one screen gets damaged or punctured, you'll have the same problem.

Hope this helps!

Great tip, but this has been covered in depth in other posts. Searching is always a good rule of thumb around here. Saves on a lot of ridicule.
