    Are any of you facing call quality stuttering? I just noticed this yesterday. EVERY call whether incoming or outgoing my calls stutter and no matter where I am, work home or just out and about. I don't think its a network service problem because my GF has the same phone and I tested in the same spot and hers is completely fine. It's ridiculous, it sounds like the other end is under water.

    I just did a complete restore and it is STILL stuttering! Is my phone bad? I updated to 2.1 on the 11th and everything was fine up until yesterday!.

    Sounds like you're ruled out the network and the software as not causing the problem, so it's likely something with your phone's hardware.

    Time for a visit to the Genius Bar (or a call to AppleCare)! :)

    If you are having a problem, and someone with the same kind of phone isn't it is either your SIM or your phone. Take the phone to an Apple Store and get it replaced or the SIM swapped (may need an at&t store for that).

    If they have to replace it are they going to give me a refurb? I will NOT accept a refurb as its only 2 months old, protected in a case since day 1 with a screen protector as well. Its never been dropped also! They better not give e a refurb.

    At the store near me, they have replacements, and it's random as if the replacement box has a refurb or a brand new one. The refurbs will have a brand new exterior case and a new serial number. Physically, it shouldn't look any different than a non-refurb. If you have concerns, talk to whomever is helping you.

    Looks like you're going to have to exchange the phone to fix the problem.

    I'm not sure what you're expecting the refurb to be like, but when Apple refurbs iPods/iPhones, they put them into brand new cases and wrap 'em up, just like they were new. If the Genius were able to put a brand-new iPhone on the counter next to a refurb iPhone, you shouldn't be able to physically tell any difference between the two.

    It's almost like you're expecting to see scratches/drop marks/prior owners fingerprints on them or something. :confused:

    Replace the phone. Refurbs have had any damaged parts replaced and they have gone through the same rigorous testing process as a new iPhone before they are shipped out to the stores.

    I've had that problem too

    It stutters in the middle of a call, then goes away. Testament to AT&T's inferior network.
