My Jolla's speaker produces a disturbing, crackling noise at communication. Could be hardware related, or not. When the phone rings: No crackling. When talking / listening on the phone: Crackling noise audible. Very annoying. Any Ideas on how to fix?

I assume you talk about the external speaker. If you press the area and the crackling goes away its a HW issue and you contact care.

You can also test with the CSD tool. (tap 5 times the version number in Settings > System>About product)

thank you. CSD tested. I get crackling on the receiver sound test, also over CSD, Loudspeaker and headset sound ok, the receiver not. It seems to be well hidden under orther hardware.

just tried another TOH, my lime green one... Sound over receiver seems way better! Not quite crystal clear, but really almost good. Mayhem my white other half was a bit loose, then.

yes, the lime green TOH does not change anything, that was mere hope. Warranty is a good idea, I'll try that before trying to fix it myself. Thank you.

I had the same problem some weeks ago, also in my case, it was hardware related. Jolla repaired the phone under warranty (2 years in Europe).
