    I have verizon in the USA and I noticed last night when I made a voice call a strange "blowi g" sound like the wind which came and went. It sounded very weird but was going in and out.

    Anyone else have this happen yet?

    there is another thread that had similar claims. one poster said iPhone 5 owners will get used to the noise or effect.

    Its almost like a hallow sound in your ear.
    I dont know if the person on the other end hears a difference, but the person talking into your ear sounds muddled/hallow.

    I've been wondering about this. For me, it sounds like a metallic vibration sound, like when you voice matches the resonance frequency of the aluminum creating a echoing type of vibration sound.

    I took mine in to best buy mobile and they found a post that attributes it to the noise cancelling feature. If you turn off the noise cancelling function it will go away. I made them send me a new phone though. I shouldn't have to go without an intended function. I didn't break it...

    I traded in three phones and they all had a subtle rattle in the earpiece, all from different time frames and manufacturing lots, obviously, so it was weird. It was a nuisance but not that big of a deal. I'm positive this isn't what you're talking about but I just wanted to throw that out there.

    I've experienced that before. I hang up and call again and usually works.
