Further update on my replacement unit. Have spent the day in locations over a spread of 250 miles from the NW to Southern UK making numerous calls using 3G only. All location services turned on.
No static or crackling whatsoever and, believe me, it was so bad on the first unit that I am now ultra sensitive about any drop in audio quality. My replacement unit was delivered one week after the first which itself arrived on launch day and as Orange UK only gives a 14 day swap over period, been monitoring the new unit very closely lest any problems reappeared. It looks however that it might be ok.
Added bonus is that it also hasn't heated up like the original did.
Fingers tightly crossed.....

Hi all, just been experiencing this now for the last
10-15 min even as I am typing this.
I have not as yet experienced this with headphones.
Very strange crackling on and off not consistent.
Will try to record. Thanks for all the posts.

Still have this issue as well.
Tried everything, from switching off data, to fulle restoring the phone.
Still have the static noise, it's driving me crazy ><
I also have a echo when I use the supplied headphones to make a call.
Sometimes not right away, but after a few minutes of talking.
Very annoying, as my 3GS was a perfect phone, so now I feel like returning to that one.
Please don't just complain here, but go to the Apple Store or Call them!!!

Hi all, update from my last post Friday 28oct.
Do not recall when on Friday night it stopped.
But Saturday and now Sunday morning GMT as I post.
There has been no crackling at all.
Sorry I can not provide a solution of how it stopped.
Hope you all experience the same phone repairing itself.
Thank you again for all the advise.

I just recently noticed the same problem on my black 32GB 4S on AT&T and promptly returned it for a replacement phone. I set up my new phone and noticed the same cracklin problem in my replacement phone. Upon further investigation I noticed that the crackling noise goes away when I turn on airplane mode, which makes me think that this is a network problem rather than a hardware problem. Let me know if anyone else can confirm this.

I have tested in EU on T-mobile, Orange and a few others so I think that this not a network problem. My iP4 sn is DNQ...... from 40 week. Maybe here is the key. Check your number.
