I have people complaining their is tremendous background noise when I use my 8700 for calls. Is there a setting change I can make, or is this typically for BB? If I am in a crowd or have people around....I can't be heard...

I have people telling me the same thing. It also picks up wind like a windsock. I do not know of any settings or anything like that but my bluetooth headset makes it a little better even though there is no noise cancelling with the 8700's bluetooth. The upside to all of this is that the speaker phone works very well.

Use a wired or bluetooth headset.

Noise cancellation would be a feature of the headset itself -- not bluetooth.

I don't get a lot of complaints...only when I've clearly been in an area that hahs a lot of background noise. Sometimes I cup my hand around the speaker but not sure if it really does anything besides making me look like an idiot.
