Bigmpowerstroke, I can understand that would make it very difficult to use the speakerphone or listen to music on your Incredible 2. I have not seen this as a known issue on the Incredible 2. It sounds like a hardware issue and the device may need to be replaced. I would suggest restarting the phone and adjusting the volume first. If it still seems to have a crackling sound on every song or ringtone, please send me a PM with your name & number so we can look at replacement options.
