    I'm not quite sure how to explain it, but sometimes while on a call I get a few seconds into the conversation, or even a few mins in and all of a sudden it sounds like Darth Vader on acid... The sounds coming out of the phone are garbled electronic and hissing... It's so very weird... It happened so much this morning I had to go to my VoIP line just to talk to my friend for 3 mins... I know I'm not the only person to have this issue, but for the life of me I can't find anything online... Can someone point me to the answer? Thanks!

    No, sorry I've not had that problem. Could it be a carrier problem or a defective phone?

    I have no idea, it's happened on more than one iPhone I've had... I've never had another service other than AT&T with the iPhone so it could be carrier problem... I just have no idea...

    Are you on Verizon because everyone once in awhile I get that on Verizon and have to hang up and try again. Not limited to iPhone though.

    I experienced this on my iPhone 4S in the UK, along with a static sound coming from the back of the phone. Got it exchanged at the Genius Bar.

    Did you recently get the Terminator ear implants that they are giving everyone now? It gives you super-human hearing. That could be the cause of your issue.
