I have two 4S IPhones and both have static when talking on the phone. I see there has been a lot of reported problems with this issue..

Just wondering if there is a fix yet, or should I start looking for a new phone from some other company.

Thanks for any help

    No one here knows what Apple is working on... we're just users like you. 


    Standard troubleshooting...


    Try a reset by pressing the home and sleep buttons until you see the Apple logo, ignoring the slider. Takes about 5-15 secs of button holding and you won't lose any data or settings.


    If still a problem restore with your backup.


    If still a problem restore as new, i.e. without your backup. See how it runs with nothing synced to it.


    If still a problem, it's likely a hardware or carrier issue.

    Did you try the other troubleshooting steps?


    While I've read about your issue here, I know many people with iPhones, none of which complain about static.


    You can provide feedback to Apple here...
