    I saw Shadowmite's "voice quality" patch a long time ago, now I have my unit and would like to add it. Please direct me to where it is......Thanks all

    seriously though I have the same sound issues and I'm pretty sure the vast majority of sprint 650s have this problem. Why? because it is obviously a faulty software algorithm or something so all sprint 650s will have this.. but may or may not show up depending on the user ie. their voice, tone, if they speak loud or not.

    Since they have fixed the issue on the GSMs they should let us patch ours as well!

    Have they? There are some complaints on the board from GSM TREO 650 owners as well...

    I have no idea -- was replying to the original guy who said he was on Sprint.

    Thanks for the reply. I seem to be one of the few people suffering from call quality on the other end (on a GSM 650). I'm going to exchange it tonight and see if it makes a difference. I honestly think it might be the cell towers around here, which are being switched over to Cingular from Suncom.

    The phone also sounds tinny at times, but only on certain calls. Anyone else have a problem with this? ARRGGH!!

    I have a Sprint T650 and have noticed poor reception as reported by my listeners when I am in a noisy environment. This includes my car with the top down or my window open. Family style restaurants (which are great for my young kids but bad for my T650) and bars are also frustrating places to make a call. A walk in the park on a windy day, particularly with the Jabra wireless headset is a headache as well. The phone works great in quiet environments. Given these facts, the problem may reside in the phones noise cancelling software so that the chopy voice heard at the other end is actually being cancelled as the phone interprets voice as noise rather than signal.

    I went to the Sprint store in Fayetteville, NC. They knew nothing of this problem and to appease me, reloaded the initial software (?ROM flash) with no effect. I haven't tried the patch talked about on this forum but I am tempted. I too would prefer an patch from the OEM.

    Great idea! However, the NVFS isn't only software, it's Non-volatile RAM as well...

    However, if they'd just used real RAM from the getgo, we wouldn't be having this problem. Hell, how much would it have cost them to add a 5-minute capacitor? 10, 15 bucks?!

    I did a hard reset and noticed that the voice garbling/choppiness improved immediately. After installing Chatter, the problem re-emerged. Is it possible that the data coming into Chatter is disrupting my calls? I just assumed that all data was disconnected when actually talking on the phone. Anyone knowledgable about this?

    I've used Chatter extensively on the 650 and didn't experience this (I don't have any sound quality problems). However, you could ask on the Chatter forum on TC where the developer actively participates.

    You're imagining things. There's no way having Chatter installed could do anything to the sound quality of a phone call.

    Many useless reponses left here to the orig. question.
    1. The sound quality is a well known big issue.
    2. GSM verisons probably were fixed before release
    3. Shadowmite patch available but we want the official PalmOne patch.
    4.P1 sucks. It's like talking to a wall.

    My Sprint CDMA sounds great, no patch needed. Posting from it right now.

    My GSM version always sounded good. Never had a problem with the quality.
    Treo 650 GSM

    Yeah, I thought it was unlikely that Chatter was the problem. I was just commenting that a hard reset seems to alleviate the problem, until I connect to the internet (which I usually do through Chatter). Anyway, it seems like I'm in the extreme minority of GSM users to have sound quality problems, so maybe it's just my location. (What I don't understand, in that case, is why my old T637 sounds perfect in the same locations my Treo 650 sounds like crap--and I've tried TWO different GSM Treos now.)

    Well, I have noticed that my Cingular 650 sounds much better through my BT headset. When I use the handset, I still notice a fluttering sound. I have been in three states the past three days and have noticed the same sound issues: Low volume, background noise (more that my T-mobile Treo 600), fluttering and static.

    Will any of the existing hacks fix this or do i have to wait for P1/Cingular? Or return and wait for my unlocked Treo 650? Comments please...
