    Hey Guys,
    First post and Hi to you all!

    i've had my 8520 on Orange for around 6 months and its been fantastic, until today. I went to make a call and it sounded like the speaker was up to loud as it was "crackley".

    I turned the volume down, but still no joy. I've tried a battery pull too but no effect.

    Any ideas?

    It could be a few things. You could have been in a bad cell, been calling someone on another network (can cause sound problems) you could have been in an area where you were right between UMA/EDGE or you might just have had a bad connection. Now if this keeps happening with multiple different call receivers/networks/landlines, you might have a phone issue. What OS are you running?

    Welcome to CrackBerry! And that problem could be caused by a bad reception, either yours or the person you're talking to. And updating your OS will likely fix that problem.

    my bet is the ear speaker is loose or a connection is. Take it to a dealer

    To eliminate the network or connection, how does it sound through the speaker phone, or through the wired and bluetooth headsets?
