On 2nd Droid...

I have really enjoyed everything about the Droid in the 5 days I've had it, except call quality. I switched from an iPhone 3G and the droid can do everything my iPhone could and more, and then I placed a phone call.

My phone was updated to 2.0.1 right at the Verizon store. I left, made a call, and am now regretting leaving my iPhone. I get horrible choppiness, static, and muffled voice on my end. On the other end everyone I call can hear me great. I have tried the *228 options 1 and 2, changing to evrc-b(or whatever it was called) and 13k, privacy off, basically every setting i could find.

Went to the Verizon store, the saleswoman said it was normal and that all phones do that. I laughed, said I was gonna quit this "awesome network" and go back to "crap" AT&T, then they exchanged the phone no problem. Of course this fixed nothing and here I am making phone calls and repeating, "what did you say?" until I can make out some words.

Don't get me wrong, I like Verizon and I've had them before and I never had any issues with call quality, which brings me to believe it's strictly the phone. I may have gotten the occasional dropped call on the iPhone(once a week at most) but at least my calls were all clear.

Basically I'm wondering if there's something I'm missing here or have I covered all the bases in trying to solve this problem? I love this device, just not the phone part of it.
 
Hey buddy...I am on my second droid going on round three...this time around one of my two maJor issues is people on the other end say I'm muffled and they can't hear me at all...hahaha opposite from u! My previous droid would power cycle all the live long day BUT call quality was amazing...I think its hit or miss...I'm hoping my third droid is problem free! Also I've yet to have one without a loose screen soo I'm crossin. My fingers
