2.0.1 Phone Audio Issue - Bad News, Confirmed - Droid

Member

There appears to be an issue, verified by others, after the 2.0.1 update.  I was one of the few to get the update over the air.

 

The issue is that, perhaps after unplugging headphones, you cannot hear audio from the earpiece.  I have to enable speakerphone to hear, or use a headset.  Rebooting fixes the issue.  I posted this on AndroidForums and have gotten others to confirm:

Actually a known problem with the Droid since its inception.  I have three friends with the phone and only one had this issue.  He needed to get the phone replaced.  Reference engadget below

That is not the issue.  That's a speakerphone issue.  My speakerphone works fine, I said so in the first message.

 

It's the earpiece that I cannot hear.  I believe it is related to using headphones.  It happens after I listen to music.  Any music listeners experience this after 2.0.1?

I have had this problem too.  Its super annoying because I listen to music all the time, and then have to reboot my phone just to talk on the phone.  Or annoy everyone around me with speaker phone.
