Not that I'm aware of. However I agree that most of the older GPRS 7100 series have wretched sound. Background noise is a major problem on these models.

Fortunately RIM has taken notice, and improved the sound quality on their latest devices.

However, I highly recommend the ETYMOTIC wired headset....it does a great job of improving the sound quality for both you and your caller. No background noise with this baby...

Results of the class action lawsuit: $5 of the purchase of a new BlackBerry. Lawyers get $23,500,000.

Jase88 you did not get the memo, its not audio that they have a patent on but on the plastic housing. So as long as we take the components out of it and place them in a cardboard box we should be safe, but then again I have not looked to see if cardboard boxes are patented either.

I think Microsoft has the patent on cardboard boxes. They stole it from Apple, who appropriated it from Xerox where it was originally invented at PARC.

Oops - that was Windows. Sorry.

I was thinking about something the other day. Couldn't SMS be considered "push messaging"? You think it's possible NTP will go after carriers for a piece of SMS....?

LOL

Default Cardboard Box Patent

I checked and the card board box is NOT patented, only the flaps are. See earier post about Microsoft for patent holder.

Precisely. I see no reason to make a fat lawyer fatter while I end up with a coupon as a "settlement". These people crying out "class action" at the drop of a hat must have never been involved in one...

Like NJBB said if you sue as a class action suit, you will get a $1.98 or a coupon and the lawyers will get rich and guess what you will still have a crappy phone that you cant hear out of. So what did you gain, personal satisfaction, oh my.
