People were battling with the iPhone 4S battery problem and now we have another problem on top of that. iPhone 4S users are now battling with an echo bug while making calls.
Many people like they did with the iPhone 4S battery problem have turned up at Apple forums and have started complaining regarding this echo during calls.
When making a call on iPhone 4S the echo bug kicks in after sometime (varying with each iPhone 4S). It lasts for sometime and goes away but then returns back.
What this echo bug does is, it also dramatically decreases the audio quality of the call and makes it very difficult to hear what the other person is saying.
Here one of the users have described the echo bug problem
The longest time it has taken for me so far is about 12 mins before it kicked in! The average time is between 1min to 6 mins for me. Im going to try and describe the sound as best as possible. When it happens the volume on the headset suddenly increases, as well as the white nose (snow) in the back ground increases to the point it pretty much over takes the conversation. The other person experiences quite alot of delay in the echo, about 2 seconds and we are no longer able to communicate with one another due to them hearing the echo. Unplugging the headset solves the problem, but will only come back once re-plugged in. Also I have noticed that my data from 3g usually drops to Edge or nil and my signal strength becomes very weak.
Currently there is no permanent solution for fixing this problem but there is a temporary one.
Let me repeat the temporary fix again. If the echo happens, press the speakerphone button on & off to get rid of the echo.
