N8 have a sound of "Tik" during call?

I got N8 and i hearing a sound like "Tik" during calls, and i tried to test it from earpiece directly anf from speaker and also from wire headset and all are same!

i changed the carrier to another carrier and it's the same.

i replaced the phone from the store with new one and i got the same in the 2nd one, today i refund my money but actually i asked for technical report and it's not clear!

 

please someone tell me what's wronge with N8, i waited this phone from more than 6 months and i like it but don't like this sound at all and i notice the signal of this phone is not good on 3G network from home ,work or even on street!

 

Is Nokia working on solve this issue or what, whould i wait to fix this hardware issue? or i waiting for another mobile like HTC HD7 or the next N9?

I don't like N9 as it'll have a keyboard and i don't like this.

Re: N8 have a sound of "Tik" during call?

Well, I'm using N8 for about there months, and I can say it has no in call quality issues, I have never experienced the problem you are talking about. Usually a tick sound in call is a privacy indicator for call recordings, did you try any call recording programs or did the other party you made the test call had call recording turned on? That is the only possibility I can think of.

Re: N8 have a sound of "Tik" during call?

I changed the SIM with anotehr operator and it's the same "TIK". it's not an operator issue as i used a lot of other phones and this issue not exist even i have Nokia 5800 and no issues plus Samsung mobile on the same time and no TIK issue.

 

Why Nokia don't solve this issue? is it a hardware issue or software?

 

I guess it's a hardware issue but what's it exactly and why it's exist till now?

 

Any Nokia representative let us know what's this issue and when it will be solved?

 

the TIK sound make me angry someytimes as sometimes the sound is high and sometimes medium.

Re: N8 have a sound of "Tik" during call?

If it were a faulty unit, the probability to come across  another unit with the same bug would have been close to 0 but you got both with the tik issue, instead.

If  it were a project-firmware related issue, all other N8 owners would have reported here.

Does it happen everywhere and always, or it's a random one?

Re: N8 have a sound of "Tik" during call?

I get same issue. Not on every call though. Like 1 in 8. SO not that much of an issue but certainly annoying if business related call.

Re: N8 have a sound of "Tik" during call?

Dear Puasho,

I updated the software with APP 1 and phone update as i can remomber, so i had the leatest updates.

I'm not sure if it's software or hardware issue but it seems a hardware issue on antenna or something like this, Nokia care at their report wasn't clear on both mobiles, they just write, "The mobile should be replaced" but i refund on the second mobile and decided to wait and see if the issue will solved or not but acually i don't find anyone in my country said he found this issue, and it's a strange to get the same issue on the replacement as well!.

 

Yea this sound happended at my home, work and on street and it's random.

You may find it in the first 5 minutes of call, sometimes ater 20 min, sometimes it's distributed during the 1 hour call!

 

That sound was drive me crazy sometimes.

I hope someone from Nokia told us what's wrong and when this will be solved!?

The same problem here

I didn't sense that problem when I bought the N8 with first firmware but after updating to 013.016 I noticed that I hear some "click" noise like sound during the conversations

I guessed it might be for some application like MCleaner but it seems you all have the same problem

 

Somebody care please !

Re: N8 have a sound of "Tik" during call?

Lots of nokias I've had have the annoyng tick noise. It seems to be worse on the 1800mhz carriers like orange and tmobile in the UK. Tmobile was appalling, sound levels would wow and

flutter too. I've not noticed the ticking on o2 on any phone (including ones that ticked on orange) so I think it is partly carrier related and what the carrier does to cause it isn't dealt with well by nokias. The LG I had on tmobile was perfectly ok call quality wise. No ticking, no wowing and no fluttering so it is something nokia do or don't do I think.

Re: N8 have a sound of "Tik" during call?

Do u think it's antenna related or it's software related?

It seems an Antenna as Nokia didn't fix this issue on updates or on PR 1.1.

Hi all,

 

For assistance about any unresolved concerns on your Nokia N8, we highly recommend that you directly send or voice out your feedback directly to Nokia by contacting local Nokia Careline via phone or email by clicking on the "Contact Us" link at your local Nokia website.

Re: N8 have a sound of "Tik" during call?

Thank you for your suggestion, I have alreday done that several times, and according to them, it is rare case and they never heard of. On the nokia care report they write speaker problem once and the second time they say to change the handset. When I asked them they have no correct explanation of the problem and the cause of it.

 

At first I thought "I" might be the problem, and its in my head, but when I found out all these people having the same problem, I realize I am not alone.

 

My full story here on another thread: /t5/Nseries-and-S60-Smartphones/Nokia-N8-makes-an-annoying-crackling-click-noise/m-p/985015/highligh...

 

Please suggest.
