I believe I have found a new bug -- or a new variant on a bug -- with WebOS Internalz.
People I called reported I sounded garbled, when using any corded headset -- the one supplied with my Pre 2 (a toy; I needed something to play with, and to help transition to other OSs from my beloved Treo680 and two Centros and my Palm T|Xs). This Pre 2 had been updated with the latest OS version I could find (2.2.4?) and had a few apps installed, also Ubercalendar and WebOS Internalz and File Manager. The problem had not been reported initially.
The problem only obtained with corded headsets: The Pre 2 supplied headset (which, as a stereo headset, is decent), and Ecko headset, and two Plantronics mono headsets, one with a 2.5mm-to-3.5mm adapter (a favorite headset...). My (ancient, but functional -- except where to get more AAAA batteries?...) Jabra Bluetooth headset worked correctly, with no garbling.
After surveying options -- and reading some interesting if only indirectly suggestive postings here -- I pulled File Manager and WebOS Internalz (a forced linkage). I then tested with several headsets and Bingo! reasonably clear sound, no garbling.
A side note: I adore the Touchstone concept -- but am finding myself changing batteries, unless I am very careful to toggle off GPS and WiFi (and sometimes data...) when out for the day. A fresh battery (I have several, between the Pre-specific and the Centro just-the-same ones) charged in my standalone charger is 100% percent, and two of those is more than ample for a long day.
