Earpiece distortion

Yesterday someone bumped into my locker at work and made my phone fall onto the cement floor. Ever since the earpiece has awful distortion, sounds like the speaker is blown. It has never had problems, and I've never dropped it, so I'm assuming this is what caused it. Does anyone else have the problem, or know of a way to fix it? I don't have insurance because I've always taken care of my phones. Does anyone know if RIM has a repair service, I'm willing to pay to have it fixed, just can't figure out how/where. Thanks

If you have had your phone for under a year then I'm sure you can get a replacement. Most providers give you this service at no cost. Just tell them your speaker is not sounding right and they should replace it (I wouldn't mention dropping it lol!). If you are out of the warranty period then you will have to find an independent part seller. Horizon Wireless is an example where you can get a replacement speaker for $10: Horizon Wireless

Re: Earpiece distortion

I have the same problem too... Please help me. Where in the Metro (Philippines) can I bring my BlackBerry to have BB experts check it? (since it's still under warranty).


Everytime i make a call the earpiece's too loud even if the default volume is set to 25%. I can even hear myself talking...There's a crackling sound too.(maybe a result of the loud earpiece)


I got my phone last March and it started to act like this 3 days ago..


Please help me.. PLEASE? I so love my BlackBerry Curve 8520!!!


I don't go online that often so please if there is any help kindly SMS me @ (+63915)8044626 Globe


NOTE: That I didnt dropped my phone...(That's how I love it)
