Earlier today I started getting people telling me that they're hearing a lot of static when they call me. I tested the mic in visual voicemail by recording a voice message, and it sounds fine. I then got someone elses phone and called it and could hear tones of static when I tried to speak. What could this be from?

No, I'm not using a headset, case, or anything that could obstruct the microphone. I'm in a great cell reception area with full bars.

I just restored the phone, and it's still happening. Does this mean I have to take it in? :-\

It's possible, yeah. I would make an appointment with a genius since you already restored.

Ok.. thats awesome.. so the OP will connect to the three closest towers...

The point is.. the OP should try to powercycle his device to eliminate static.

I think some of you missed the fact that the OP restored, which means he/she has rebooted the phone at least once.
