Default Microphone too loud?

Please Login to Remove!

Ok, I have been meaning to ask this for a long time. I haven't been able to find anyone who has talked about it before.

Ever since I went from a Curve to Bold, my girlfriend *****es that my background noise is too loud. She can hear anything and everything going on around me. She says if a rustle some papers around it sounds like I am dragging them across the mouthpiece. If I am somewhere even remotely loud (like a moderately busy airport) she can barely take it because she can hear everything going on around me.

I tell her to turn her volume down, and my voice get softer, but she can still hear all the background stuff just as loud.

I didn't think much of it until a friend got a Bold, and when I got on the phone with him, I could hear EVERYTHING he was doing. Driving home, parking, the jingle of the keys getting out of the car, steps on the pavement, opening the front door, opening a cabinet, its just way too sensitive.

Has anyone else (or your called party) noticed this? Or is it just me? I would love to find a way to adjust the sensitivity of the mouthpiece but haven't found anything close to that option.
