    Howdy howdy,

    Is anyone else hearing a very faint clicking sound from their earpiece when connected to call? It's an on-again, off-again thing, not totally consistent. I've heard it on two different calls, one to Verizon customer service and one to an AT&T iPhone user.

    Is this a CDMA thing or my iPhone?

    Has nothing to do with CDMA specifically. My calls are clear, so it's either your phone or secondary to borderline coverage in your area.

    Clicking

    There have been plenty of other people experiencing this (including myself). What has been consistent with all of us is that the clicking only happens when connected to a wifi signal (not just wifi turned on on the phone). Is that what is happening to you? During a call, be connected to wifi; if you hear the clicking, while still in the call go to settings and turn wifi off. That should solve the problem. Extremely lame -- I know.

    I'm on my third phone because of this crap. The third one didn't do it, but now after a month of having it, it has started the clicking when connected to wifi. I'm pissed. :mad:

    Solution?

    Hey PdpFilms!

    Did you ever end up finding a solution to this?

    I have a genius bar appointment today at 4:20pm - any tips on what I should say?

    Did they end up fixing something or just replacing the iPhone?

    One of the things I like best about my 4 and 4S is the quality of the phone. I have used Blackberry and Android phones and nothing sounds better than the iPhone. No clicking that I can hear.

    My situation seems to be slightly different than most people's:

    I have an iPhone 4S and a Motorola H17 Bluetooth headset. I hear the clicking only when I'm using the Bluetooth headset and wi-fi is on. When I use the speakerphone or earpiece on the iPhone, no clicking. When I turn off wi-fi, no clicking. When I use a different Bluetooth headset, no clicking.

    Based on my experience and other people's experiences on this forum, it seems that the problem is electrical interference between the wi-fi and the headset. The question is, who's to blame: Motorola or Apple?

    It's tempting to blame Motorola, because the problem occurs only on my Motorola headset. However, this exact headset worked perfectly—no clicking—when I used it just yesterday when I had an iPhone 4 on AT&T. And others are reporting clicking when they use iPhones with Verizon, even though most people report the problem with the earpiece on the phone rather than a bluetooth headset.

    The reason I ask is that I have an appointment with an Apple genius tomorrow morning, and I want to be prepared if s/he tries to blame it on Motorola.

    Any suggestions?
