Static on ATT curve
I don't have a Curve, but my friend said people tell her that they hear static everytime they talk to her. There are a lot of reasons why this could be happening, obviously. I am more wondering if anybody else has had this issue and they have figured out what the problem is. My friend also stated that her friend with a curve has the same issue. Any clue?

No I'm not experiencing static on my end either. Now when my bluetooth is catching interference from my microwave or digital clock radio I hear it but I move away from those devices. but talking while walking in the mall, outside, in my car (on the move) or elsewhere NO static!

I have a Curve on AT&T and occasionally receive static. But giving out static is another thing. I think your friend needs to find out if it's static or background noise (like the highway). I think that a lot of AT&T phones incl the Curve send out a lot higher background noise than other phones and networks. I don't have a good explanation. Partially covering the bottom hole of the Curve seems to help those phones. Also, switching SIM cards may help. Hope that helps.

I had some serious problems with static and "digital noise", ie. whole syllables and/or words dropping out, like I was in the Matrix. There were times when people couldn't understand me and vice versa. (Curve 8310 w/ATT)
I called CS warranty and returns dept, spent a bit of time troubleshooting with them, and finally they agreed it was a problem with the handset. They sent me a new one, and it has been crystal-clear since then. If your friend does call them, make sure she tells them the phone shows good signal strength (if it does), and that a different handset does not have any problems in the same spot. This was the case with me, since the problematic one was a replacement for one that had a dead pixel in the display, but good acoustics.
I'm currently happy as a pig in........something a pig would like.

My wife's Curve has the same problem! Anyone talking to her hears horrible static. I have the same phone, but I don't have the static. We also have AT&T. Also, she is not using a headset. The static occurs during normal use indoors, when there is no extra noise in the background.

I have been having the same static problem with my blackberry curve. I returned my phone and the lady told me it might be because I had an old sim card. I got a new phone and a new sim card and I'm still having the same problem. The static is driving me nuts. I don't know if I should go to another store or is it a problem with the curve phones themselves?

I never hear static and never have been told by anyone on the
other end that they hear static. Could be an issue isolated to
that particular handset. Maybe have your carrier look into it.

8310 - Static Noise Problem
I have the static problem now after one year of use. Seems like it start generating static while battery goes to 50%. I am not sure that its a problem related to Battery but now a days battery also get dried up faster then it was before.
Does anybody has any suggestion except changing a phone? Will battery replacement will fix or not? Need to know experience from others.

static and cutting out
I installed a new battery about two weeks ago. Two days ago I'm getting static occasionally. Now it is cutting out routinely. Another symptom: I took a picture and the flash stayed on. I've removed the battery and put it back about 100 times and it doesn't usually help. Sometimes it comes back up after a hanging hourglass for 3-4 minutes.
not sure how to proceed aside from going to the store and getting an iphone or another crackberry.

I'm having the static problem with my blackberry after 18 months of static-free use. My phone drops the call and goes dead without notice, then it restarts on it's own. It shows low battery when it does this, but should be pretty fully charged. I tried troubleshooting with At&t with no help. I didn't drop it in water, like they are trying to tell me should be the issue. I'm going to try replacing the battery & see if that helps.

- Qill tip please
im on att and have never had any static no matter where I went. One thing to consider though, and its just a thought, is your friends rubbing the phone with his/her face or hand? That can sound like static to the person your talking to and you would never hear it. I had a friend that was doing that.

I began to have static issues as well after 3 years of owning the bb 8310 /at&t. Since the phone was out of warranty I figured that I had nothing to lose. What worked for me was to disassemble phone, and wiped all contacts and the innards with a household cleaner with vinegar with a paper towel then reassembled when dry. Also wiped the inside of the ear plug with same cleaner and towel. My phone has been static free for a week now. However in the process, I broke one of the screws by tightening it to tight.
