Thumping noise on iPhone 5

When I am talking to people, I hear an annoying low pitched rapidly rhythmic thumping sound. The party I'm talking to doesn't hear it. Guess it is in the phone. Have an iPhone 5. Got it at BB over Christmas. Using Verizon.
Thoughts??
Frank

You don't happen to be holding the iPhone with your hand covering the mic on the back by the camera?

No, that's not what I'm saying (as I considered that statement to have been condescending when it came out of Steve Jobs' mouth at the time.)

The noise-cancelling microphone is a new factor and some users have had varied responses to same. I was merely asking the question.

Yeah, god forbid you try to actually help someone around here. If you're not ridiculing the OP you might as well not post.

Guys, still happening. Definitely didn't hold anyplace that seemed like it covered something. I held by the sides on the bottom of the phone.
I DO have a "Lifeproof" supposedly waterproof cover on it. Could that be inhibiting something?? Annoying almost "ceremonial rhythmic ritualistic" humming... pulsating.
Thoughts??
Thx.
Frank

Exclamation Thumping?

I wonder if you are hearing RF interference from some nearby radio source?

No need to explain. I was joking.

Once more, the cover is not sealing off the said "mic" is it?

Have you tried a soft reset? A hard reset? How much service do you have when your on call? Does this only happen when you call certain people/carriers? Explain a little more

Yes, some of the LP cases cause this to happen. Contact them about it. Right now their CS is pretty slow.
