    Unless Im misunderstanding the earlier post, then we are specifically talking N1 on AT&T exclusively, and in comparison to the Backflip exclusively through AT&T. Its a nice comparison but a little bit beside the point if I am understanding correctly.

    It was my mistake. I was under the impression that ATT charged less when not subsidizing the cost of a phone. It seems that only T-Mobile does this.

    Same prob here

    Ever since I got this phone my husband has been saying the call quality is really bad. I can hear him fine, but he says I sound muffled and sometimes he can't even hear me at all! Everytime I call him he yells "THAT PHONE SUCKS!" I had the LG Shine before and the call quality on that phone was phenomenal and many say that it didn't even seem like I was on a cell phone at all. The Backflip's mic seems to be overly sensitive, almost like when you put a normal microphone too close to your mouth. I have tried holding it different angles, but I think in the end I may end up returning it and trying the Blackberry Bold 9700 or something because I shouldn't be doing acrobatics just to use my cell phone. Such a shame because it's a fun phone. I thought it was the Case Mate case I got for it (made specifically for the phone) that was causing the muffled sound, but there isn't a huge diff when I take it off. I have yet to try the speakerphone though, and an editor review on another site says it's better than talking on it regularly, I'll try that later, but then who wants to carry on all their convo's on speaker?? *sigh*

    The case is not the problem. I was having problems before I bought the Naked Case.

    Nothing, it went away on its own, but it latter came back.

    It's really frustrating. I've been using the phone without the cover today and it's apparently better. But I went to AT&T and called my hubby from the Bold 9700 and he was like, "that's A LOT better".

    I asked the guy in the store if he's had any returns on the Backflip, he said about 2 or so and I asked if they've been selling, he said yes. But you can tell he was being a little tight-lipped about it. I know someone who works for AT&T, I will ask her the honest truth.

    Sigh, man i just don't understand why the call quality is sooo sporadic on this phone. It was clear than muffled than clear.......it's becoming annoying. I need a phone first before all the other stuff. I shouldn't have to rely on headsets and speakerphone just to enjoy a conversation with people.

    I'm wondering if it's the reception on this phone cause I hardly be having 5 bars on my phone signal. It's usually 3-4 bars. I hate to say it, but this phone might be going back for a N1.

    From what I hear bars are not very accurate period. You need to go into a sub setting in the setting menu(about phone i think), and check signal strength/quality there.

    I'm showing -103 dBm 5 asu

    I found this link

    dBm - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    But really don't have a clue what I'm really reading.
