    update: I spoke with apple support about this issue last week and they said they wanted to capture my phone to check it out and they would send me a replacement phone. I just received my new phone and it started crackling upon activation over 3G cellular network. It is definitely a 3G issue, probably the location of the antenna and the earpiece (maybe there needs to be something inbetween the two, maybe the wires are touching one another or the same piece of metal). I'm glad they are investigating my phone to figure out why the earpiece crackles while using 3G but disappointed to see my replacement phone has the same issue. It DOES sound like a bee trapped inside the phone!!

    Does this static noise occurs on EDGE network? It's only problem on 3G yes ? How about static noise during camera recording? Its related that during recording its connected to 3G?

    Kind of hard to test EDGE these days since the 3G switch is gone on the 4s. For me I only noticed it when calls were happening.

    Olá amigo!


    Tenho o mesmo problema! Comprei o meu em Espanhã dia 28 de Outubro na Apple Store Xanadú!


    Se contactar com a Apple via telefone (uma vez que tenho 90 dias de assistencia grátis) eles agendam uma recolha do mesmo?

    Hi guys,


    The crackling problem came with the "No Sim" and "No Service" problem with my iPhone 4S. When I updated to the latest build, 9A406, the crackling as well as the signal drop out problem went away. Try to check this link for the update how-to and let me know if it works.

  • castelli.hunter Level 1 Level 1

    Updating to 9A406 did not work for me. Still have the crackling/bee trapped in my phone sound when using 3G. :'(

  • AlexToP Level 1 Level 1

    After updating to *406 the annoying sound still persists.. As one of the users said earlier here - poor engineering !
    Let's wait fo 5.1 and see what happens then .. Hope dies last,right ?

  • unicohijo86 Level 2 Level 2

    Yeah, it will come.

    I am on my 3rd replacement iPhone 4S. 1 'refurb' and 2 fresh, brand new. All 3 have had the crackling/static issue. It drives me frigging insane. The Genius at Apple last time 'round said to call AT&T and have them re-provision my SIM/network. This did not fix anything. Seems like Apple just wanted to pass the buck.


    My iPhone 4 had issues with the home button (double click actions on a single click) and now my 4S has this crackle garbage. Seriously getting tired of Ive's great aesthetic designs with sh*t usership results.


    If 5.1 comes out and doesn't fix this I am moving on to a different phone. I just can't take this anymore.

  • chang220 Level 1 Level 1

    Have the same issue as well.


    Can Apple solve this problem asap??


    It's very annoying !!

  • angela133 Level 1 Level 1

    I have this issue aswell where I will hear crackling static for about 3-5 seconds before my call connects on every outgoing call. I also was having the issue of no audio at all on outgoing calls, the recipient could here me but I couldn't here a thing not even the ringing. I changed a few setting and now just have the crackling to deal with. Apple needs to come out with a fix fast as audio issues are more annoying than low battery life, to me at least.

  • redhotone1 Level 1 Level 1

    I am on my second 4S with the exact same issues. The nightmare I went through getting the first one replaced, I have decided not to even bother with this one. I will just hold out the 12 month contract and then get a new phone. Very disappointing problem considering the company swears by perfection!!

  • Paco del Woodoo Level 1 Level 1

    There are some news?
    The apple staff what says about that???


    I've buyed 5 days ago my new iphone and i'm a little bit ****** off...

  • AttRaENte Level 1 Level 1

    I have a 32gb iphone 4s and have the same issue here. Im on my second phone, definitely a hardware. NY

  • AttRaENte Level 1 Level 1

    Disabling Siri doesn't help, restoring to factory settings either. You could even hear the noise when loading pages, you have to press your ear pretty hard to the receiver though. Or try using a app, you'll hear it. This *****!!!!! iPhone 4s 32gb white, NY.
