I just got my iphone 5 not long ago but everytime i am talking on the phone it will beep as if there was a incoming call.  Does anyone knows why?  I've tried restoring it but the problem still exist.  What is wrong with my iphone 5?  Please help.

iPhone 5, iOS 6.0.1

    I have a LifeProof case as well and I can't remember ever hearing this beep before installing it. I have had iPhone 5 since launch. I wonder why having this case on could cause this. I will take case off and put my otterbox back on for a few days and see if this is indeed the cause. I will post my results in a few days.

    Ok so after several days with LifeProof off and otterbox back on I can confirm I have not heard any annoying beeping sounds when talking on the phone. Taking my beloved LifeProof back tomorrow for a refund and I guess I'll play the old waiting game on the waterproof otterbox set to come out in early January.

    I created a support case with them but they never responded. I ended up just returning my case and going back to the otterbox.

    My girlfriend's iphone 4s beeps at me and she doesn't have a lifeproof case - I assure you, this is not the cause. You may have just had good luck. Trying to figure it out.

    I've had my iPhone 5 since it came our and had it in an otterbox until a couple days ago and I placed it in a LifeProof case and started hearing the beeps! I was confused thinking I had some app beeping the person on other end of call had something beeping. So, thankful for your post because, reading the comments about the LifeProof case made me know for sure that somehow that was the issue being that I just started noticing it on both days that I had LifeProof.

    My iphone 5 does the same thing. A single, very loud beep at random times during the conversation. Other side can't hear it.  This started happening after I got the new waterproof case from Incipio. After reading the above posts, I'm wondering whether its a result of the waterproof design somehow? Gortex membrane causing feedback?  Would like to hear more on this subject because I like the idea of a waterproof case

    Again, my case is made by Incipio not LifeProof.  I'm not convinced of an overheat problem as any case would hold in heat and frankly the phone doesn't really generate much heat. I turned the earpiece volume down to see if its a feedback issue (I usually set it wide open) So far so good with last call.  Forgot to mention that voices sound very metallic with my case on which is why I'm suspecting an issue with the Gortex membrane. Did you have metallic sounding voices with the LifeProof?

    I have contacted life proof about the issue and they that there no record of the issue of the beeping noise they did say that the made a lot of improvement with the case and said that they will send me a replacement case as they did the case inside are different then the one so as of right now I have no more beeping noise but I will keep u posted. But call life proof to get replacement

    Beep is an understatement.  Mine screeched in my ear like feedback from a  speaker/amp  too close to a mike....deafening.  During 14 day trial period.

    My incoming call beep has no similarity to this horror noise.

    Also, the audio quality on this case was too fuzzy and muffled.

    I traded it to my husband, for his new soft case. Problem solved for me.  Then he had the screeches in his ear as well, until he removed the Incipio case.

    We returned his Incipio case to the store today.  

    I also had problems with touch pad sensitivity.  had to literally hit it  repeatedly with a little stylus to get it to respond.

    Good riddance.  All of these cases are so overpriced.  Pathetic.

    Whichever one of these ( Incipio or Lifeproof) is the hard case, is the one that screeched and was returned.   Sorry if I have the names interchanged in my reply.  A lot of todo and time wasted on these trivial overpriced  accessories, IMO. I

    have purchased many waterproof dive accessories with excellent design for less money than these phony phone cases.


    Bottom timers, camera cases, dive computers, flashlights.....

    It is just a stupid o-ring seal...

    Thank you.
