    Thumbs up Improve Call Quality - Hidden Menu Setting

    DISCLAIMER: This post describes how to access the phone's hidden programming menu. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. The changes I describe have been used by many people with the Droid 1 and other Android phones.

    I strongly recommend that you stay out of the other areas of this menu unless you know exactly what you are doing.


    -_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-

    This has been discussed many times over at DF, but I thought I'd share for those of you that weren't a Droid 1 convert and may not have seen this.

    Pull up the dialer on your phone
    Dial ##PROGRAM (##7764726)
    Hit Send (the call button)
    The password is 000000 (six zeros)
    Select option 04 (Vocoder)
    There are three options: 13K, EVRC (default), and EVRC-B
    Choose EVRC-B and hit apply
    Back out of the menu to your home screen
    The phone will reboot on its own

    This option uses a higher quality voice compression codec. The result should be an improvement of audio quality in calls. Some technical information about EVRC and EVRC-B can be found HERE.

    TEST THIS AFTER IMPLEMENTATION.
    EVRC-B, while available in most areas, is not available everywhere. If you find you are unable to place calls, go back into the menu and choose EVRC.

    Yea, I did it too but I am not sure if the difference is noticeable. Any idea if it increases or decreases talk time?

    Did it for my D1, didn't seem to improve according to the people complaining about having problems hearing me.

    Did it yesterday for my DX and haven't had anyone continue to complain about having trouble hearing me. The few people who complain about call quality all have old "dumbphones," so I'm just going to blame it on their phones :-P It couldn't POSSIBLY be my amazing Droid X causing the problem lol.
    I intend to live forever. So far so good.

    My hearings not good enough to notice any difference between pandora free, and pandora 1...

    Anyone have issues with DX, or D2G not always getting calls, or texts? i have used my new DX, to call my wifes new D2G when leaving work like I usually do, and on a few occasions she never got the call. No missed call notification, nothing. She says it happened every once in while with her old choclate, but I never had that issue with my Samsung SCHu-550.
