I just bought an iPhone and I am hearing an echo when speaking on the phone. I can hear what I say in the distance with a delay. This problem does not occur all the time. Is this normal for an iPhone? It is extremely annoying and distracting. Should I exchange the phone?

Does it only happen to one contact or every call? Try resetting or restoring your phone?

This does happen to me occasionally when I call my dad. He's on Vonage and sometimes the connection isn't right and I get the echo.

My friend has an iPhone and he reported that he heard the same type of an echo the other day when talking to someone else. I wonder if it is an AT&T network issue. It occurs randomly while talking to different people.

It's probably not your iPhone... and I'd also guess it's probably not your service.

I had this with Sprint on a Samsung phone, and still have it occasionally on my iPhone with AT&T when speaking with a certain person. It's most likely the other person's phone whom you're speaking with that's causing it.

However, it occurs when I speak to different people. It even occurred the other day when I was speaking to a Verizon Wireless Customer.

It happens to me every once and a while. Happened when I was on Sprint as well. I normally just call the person abck and the issue is fixed.
