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?

Re: I hear an Echo when I'm using my Iphone

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.

Re: I hear an Echo when I'm using my Iphone

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.

The receiver hears an echo when talking using the above hands free device

Depending on how much echo and how distinct it is, it may just be because the mic on your device (which is is by definition omni-directional) is picking up the reflected sound (say in your vehicle) than you would get talking directly into the device. Some models will exaggerate this because of the compression in the audio circuits.

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!

Hello, My LG Dare Verizon Wireless cell phone has a horrible echo. When people call me, they say they hear themselves being repeated. However, I do not hear this echo. What can I do to make this echo go...

hi, lol the echo sound is usually not from the phone you are using,it's usually from network(network fluctuation ). just live it for a while it will die down and work properly later on.

But if you can't wait, you can contact the customer care service for help.Call is free.

Have a nice day.

3G bluetooth echo and voice break

This problem doesn''t deal anything with your iPhone 3G. This could be a headset issue. I have tried connecting different Bluetooth headset to my iPhone 3G and I experienced the same problem using the Bluetooth headset of my friend.

To isolate this, please try the steps below:

- Try to disconnect/reconnect the headset via Bluetooth.

- Decrease the volume of your headset while making a call.

- Try to connect the headset using different profile. (for example, you connected your hadset using the headset profile, next try to connect the headset using handsfree profile to see if you will get the same problem)..

- Try using different Bluetooth headset to see if there's a problem only with your phone or with the headset

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
