    Exclamation Wierd Noise during Calls

    Hello Everyone, I am brand new here so I'm hoping someone can help me with this issue. I just recently (like hours ago) just upgraded my OS to 4.5.0.160 and bbm to 5.0.
    btw I have a verizon curve 8330.

    Everything seems like its going well except since I did the change, whenever I am on the phone. i hear a periodic noise. I don't really know how to describe it but its not a beep but it sounds like maybe the line cutting out. Anyway, i want to know if anyone else has had this problem and how to fix it bc it is very annoying. Thank you.

    There wouldn't be a setting that I can think of that would affect your call quality. You may need to wipe and try a clean install unless someone else knows of a fix that I'm unaware of. Is it possible it's a coincidental issue with your carrier? Also are you on a BT by chance?

    I believe I have heard that was one of the issues of that build. I have my wife on lyricdals hybrid you may want to try it. She has had dramatic improvements. Battery life, signal, speed. her curve is not all that much slower than my storm.

    The sound you're hearing is a common issue mainly for VZW users running .160 and some are experiencing it with .169 as well. So far the only fix that I know of is to load an OS lower than .160 or a hybrid.
