Call volume dropping
Has anyone noticed the volume of their n900 dropping to an almost inaudible level during calls?

While making a call mine seems to drop and then coming back randomly, it's almost as if the speaker is cutting out...

It doesn't seem to do this when using ear phones, the loud speaker or a headset.

I'm thinking I might have a faulty speaker but the phone is only 1 month old! :(

Re: Call volume dropping
This same thing was happening to me about a month ago. I havent experianced it since. I did nothing at all to solve the problem it just went away. I hope it does the same for you.

Re: Call volume dropping
Cheers buddy... I may book it into the service centre for a new speaker just in case... Until then I guess I'll just keep testing it and see what happens.

Re: Call volume dropping
Just saw this thread... Sounds like the same problem

Re: Call volume dropping
I think this is happening to me as well. Sometimes I notice it if I take the phone away from my ear for a moment to glance at the screen, then put it back, I hear the other person very faintly. At first I thought it might just be how I was positioning the phone against my ear, because after adjusting it for a few seconds, I could hear the person loud and clear again. But it happens often enough that I suspect something might actually be going on with the hardware. I'll see if I can test this more methodically somehow.

Re: Call volume dropping

Re: Call volume dropping
Just an update, but I'm almost certain the volume only drops once conversation has started (i.e. it doesn't drop until after the receiving end has answered the call and the ringing has stopped).

Has anyone else noticed that?

Re: Call volume dropping
same here... during calls volume drops annoyingly down.

Re: Call volume dropping
Thanks Buddy! The more people that are agreeing! The less worried I am about the issue.

Can anyone remember if the issue was present before the recent .51 update?

Re: Call volume dropping
I also am experiencing this with the .51.

I've re-flashed the device twice (for some of my own development that went awry) and continue to have this audio drop. It also seems that the volume rocker switch directionality was changed in .51 to be more consistent between landscape and portrait.

but I still find myself checking the volume constantly during a call to see if I have set the audio to mute.
