The 7130e has a significant echo that the receiving party hears on the voice call. This problem immediately goes away if you activate a BlueTooth device or other wired headset. The echo is bad. I have already gone thru several devices. Same issues. Any ideas???
As previously working for VZW I have had several customers with the same issue of the echo on their 7130e. All that we could do was replace the device really. If you are a VZW customer you can have the tech support rep submit a ticket to voice support for voice echos and see where that goes.
Make sure that you have the latest OS for the device.
Hope this helps! DarkStar7

I have heard similiar complaints and I do not use a skin either. I read in other threads to reboot often by removing the battery but I really do not know if it reduces the problem because it does reappear. I never have time to reboot fully by taking the battery out, wait for the reboot to only call someone and ask they return the call to perform a test. Most business users are in the same boat. Keep me posted if you hear of a solution.
I am doubtful I can return the device and even if I did it sounds like it is a recurring problem so who is to say it is not common in all 7130e's on Verizon. You are correct that the blueetooth device resolves the problem so we have the exact symptoms.
7130e Verizon here. I just got it a couple months ago. Had the echo problem today on two different calls. I also had this problem on a motorola phone last year. Not sure what the problem was there, but it would come and go. Pulling the battery only worked for a while, then it would come back. Not sure what the problem with the 7130e here is, or if it's more of a Verizon network issue. We'll stay tuned.
