I hear an Echo when I'm using my Iphone

So like the subject header said, i hear that echo when I'm using the phone directly or via my blue tooth headset and when I use the headphones that came with it. It just started, i never had this problem before. I accidentally dropped it and im wondering if that did some terrible damage. I dropped it in my house on carpet so i just don't know. Can i get rid of it somehow?

My phone echos, about 3 times a week on different phone calls. It's only been dropped 2-3 feet about 2 times, & has a rubber casing. Tech support at the Apple store told me to send it in, that this was a problem due to normal wear & tear, and that it was covered. THey may give a refurbished one back. I'm not sure if they diagnosed the problem correctly.

One of the PC magazines did an extensive drop test on the iPhone without breaking it, so your dropping it on the carpet didn't cause the problem. Echos can be caused by communication with the cellular network, so you should verify the problem by trying the phone in your local ATT/Cingular store. You may also experience a time delay that you will notice if you call another phone close by where you can hear the live voice as well as the one on the phone. Both of these problems are found in all cell phones, not just iPhone, BTW.

I hear an echo that interferes with my reception. Can this be fixed?

It is referred to as "line echo," and there's really no direct fix. Some cellular providers have better echo cancelling technology than others.

I hear echo

Are you or the other person using the speaker phone function? Does this happen during conference (3 way) calling? If you're using the speaker phone function, especially during a conference call, you're likely to hear an echo. I've had this very same issue with a different phone and the only solution I found was not to use speaker phone.

Good Luck!

I just bougth iphone 3g on march 13 2009, and have a the same problem. the problem is if somebody call i can hear them clearly but they cannot hear me but if i press the speaker on i can hear them but...

if you are using the speaker, then the volume is too high and it is creating an echo.
The bottom of the phone may be dirty also, but if not, you can restorte your iphone in itunes and it should help you with the glitch. Good luck
