Poor call quality

The people I'm calling are complaining that the call quality is suffering as it is either distorted or a tin can / tunnel sound that they are hearing. They noticed it right away when I got the S3. I have a mutual friend that got the same phone and they said his sounds bad too. I disconnected Bluetooth from my car audio and they said the sound got a hair bit louder but still distorted.

Not sure if these settings in this other forum will fix this. Poor call quality


Does anyone else have these issues? This is the Verizon 32gb model.

Re: Poor call quality

Karl, I'm not rooted. The phone is managed thru the company. You can't hear it, but others can at the receiving end. No one has complained to you that they hear it that way since you got your new phone? Ask just for the heck of it. Sometimes they won't tell you....

Re: Poor call quality

I thought I had poor call quality on my S3. I blamed it on Sprint and their towers. I could barely talk to my wife, one room away.
Then I started exploring and I turned off Google Voice on both phones. That was it.
Remember, Google voice is basically call forwarding. It throws another wrench in the mix.
I am now back to standard Sprint voice mail, text, etc. I liked the features of Google Voice but the voice quality became unreliable.
Just saying

Re: Poor call quality

I didn't faced this kind of any problem. I think you should go to service center to fix it.
