Hi everybody, I was wondering what other people think of their cdma sound quality. I have a Hyundai Gulliver and all my friends and the wife hate talking to me on it because the sound quality is awful, does anybody else have this problem or have I got a dud phone?

We run the Qualcom and Kyocera (which I think is also made by Qualcom) and they have all been pretty good in terms of voice quality.

Bozo,

If the problem is related to a car kit there is adjustment on some kits which makes a lot of difference to the sound quality. If all else fails, check the phone manual or the installation instructions for the kit.

Regards,

Slim

We also have a Kyocera, and have no dramas at all with sound quality.

Thanks guys, the phone seems to work better in the car kit than by itself Slim, signal strength is good around here to, really starting to think the phone is rubbish. Its a few years old now so maybe technology has improved since I bought it!

HI Bozo, I had the same problem with the Gullivers. They had a special on them around 3 years ago, phone and $30 call credits for around $30. We bought 3 of them at the same time and they were all lousy. Suffered from the same problem as you are finding. When I spoke to someone, I could hear them quite well but they had trouble understanding me. Lots of bits of words missing and then they'd have to try and guess what I was talking about. Since then I've had 2 Kyocera CDMAs and both worked brillianly. ( Would only have had 1 but I drowned the first one)
Hope this helps,
Wayne

Just bought myself a Nokia 2280 CDMA and it seem to be OK - but I'll know better after my forthcoming trip to Cape York.

The Gulliver was a first gen CDMA, they were all a bit dodgy (I've got the LG - in the garage still connected at $5month- and work HAD the Motorola), the sound and reception quality does not compare to today's CDMA.

Time for a new phone dude!

I have a Nokia 6385, which after a software update is sensational.

Thanks everybody, I have decided to replace it with a new generation phone. What Wayne described is exactly what mine is doing. Thanks again.
