8900 Echo Callers hear themselves so loud they are afraid to talk at times...

After about 2 days of use callers complain about an echo, if I hard reboot device [ remove battery ] callers do not complain for 2-3 days.  I am on my second phone, ATT used the warranty to replace the phone after my numerous complaints about this echo problem.

 

If I turn the volume down very low, callers do not hear it as bad, or if I use the bluetooth, they do not report this echo.

I can sometimes hear a faint one when I speak as well, WI-FI is enabled, BlueTooth is enabled, Facebook and Google Maps app loaded, Bolt Browser installed...  Phone is just a couple months old, this refurb is a couple months newer than my previous model...  Latest software loaded on PC, phone fully updated...

 

I have searched the web and found numerous reports, some with OtterBox, which I use, some without.

Problem exists with or without OtterBox on phone...

 

Tried to reach RIM over this matter as I doubt ATT has much knowledge of another companies products, found this was only method to report problems since no support available to end users like other companies...  ??   Man Sad

Maybe it isn't the phone but the providers or the towers??

Echo is not caused by the phone itself. It is caused by the connection made and might be happening when you are connecting to a cell tower that isn't specifically owned by your carrier. I have had probably 20 different cell phones and they all experience echo at some point.

Re: 8900 Echo Callers hear themselves so loud they are afraid to talk at times...

 

Me too, I hear it from my friends all the time that I echo. This really sucks. I wiped the phone and it worked until I restored all my contacts from the backup. They say it's the phone so $10.00 more for a new phone to have it happen again. It really sucks. I don't understand that if I have my headset on its fixed but without it does not.  Puzzling. None of the other phones in the house do it at all. Only the Blackberry. So any help is greatly appreciated.

If anyone has an OtterBox case this is the root of some of the problems. The are defective and if you call the company they will send a new updated version for free.
