iPhone 4 horrible voice quality

marianelmarianel Posts: 0FreedomPop Newbie
I activated an iPhone 4 (running OS 7) a couple of weeks ago and I've noticed that the voice quality is HORRIBLE. No matter what the signal strength or if I'm very close to a wifi router (home), the majority of time the voice quality is horrible.

This also seems to be true with an iPhone 5 (ios 8) that my friend activated a few weeks ago.

Is this what I should expect with FP?

    That sounds bad! I would suggest a PRL update for faster 3G speeds, or a stronger internet speed for your home broadband as that could be what is causing bad quality. My iPhone 4 and 5 have great quality.

    I have to agree with Ali, My iphone 4s has its moments...but a majority of the time, the call quality is great. It could be dependent on your location and the cell towers near by. When using a VOIP app for calls and text, the slightest signal deviation can cause issues. Some people live where 3 g is great and 4g is bad...and some people are just the opposite. I also notice that sometime, I can send a call to a person and it sounds great----but when that person-turns around and calls me back, the call is crackle y...But That is once in a blue moon...

    Did you do a service update after you activated? The Iphone 4 and 4s...really need a service update and a network reset afterwards...

    Service update is ##update# hit the call button.....Make sure you do this on the phones native dialer...

    To do a service update dial ##CLEAR# and then ##UPDATE# in the native dialer :)

    @njfulwider5‌ It applies to both iPhone 5 and 4/4S. The ##CLEAR# gets rid of any Sprint settings that don't apply to FP and makes things faster.

    Ali,
    on my iphone 4s to do a service update you do ##update#....than click call...

    The Iphone I am using only uses Freedompop settings with the app--not the data

    ##clear# is not needed on the Iphone 4 or 4s

    You can do just ##873283#... that will work for all of us but the ##25327# (CLEAR) will force anything not needed off. Its recommended you do both.

    I'd just try the ##update# and see what happens...Feel free to PM me directly and we can work threw this till we figure this out
