Please sound off if you are also experiencing callers complaining of echoing when you are speaking to them on speakerphone with the Nexus S 4G.  I am hearing more and more of it, I can only assume it is a mass issue.

What good is a replacement.  They have a known issue.  My friend and I both purchased Nexus S phones and both have the same issue.  Is this a known issue with the Tmobile version?  What to do???????  Sprint are you watching this???? Help Help Help.  I finally got a phone that I like and I have a huge issue!!!

Interesting note.  If you take the backing of the phone off, no echo with Speakerphone.  I'm no hardware guru or scientist, but is sounds like the 2 holes in the back of the phone aren't letting the sound totally exit the phone, causing the voice to echo/vibrate in the phone.  Just a guess, but removing the back does seem to fix it.. not a viable fix for me.

I just returned my Nexus S 4G due the speakerphone echo issue.  Very disappointing as the phone was otherwise a touchdown.  Hard to imagine this issue was not vetted by Samsung prior to release. If a fix is found or if this is not a mass problem, I would re-purchase this device.

Seeing the large number of posts on this topic prompted me to test this issue on my Nexus S. I was not able to replicate this issue. We tested it a couple different ways with the volume turned up to the maximum to no avail. If this is a widespread issue it's not affecting all of them. Pretty much any cell phone on speaker phone causes an echo, some more than others. Other than having a technitian troubleshoot the device in the store as SprintCares suggested, you may have some success lowering your speaker phone volume a bit.
