Not just in Bayville, NY! I'm in Ohio and when talking on phone, everything will be fine then the caller will sound as if talking in a very slow, garbled voice. It will only last for maybe 20 seconds, then return to normal, then may happen again in a few minutes. I've re-programmed to pick up current towers, but no difference. This happens on my phone and wife's phone, so it seems to be phone independent.
