Apparently NSA needs to improve their eavesdropping software on your phone.

Not calls dropping but the echoing in the background.  This is only a recent thing ... not for the past year.

We have had dropped calls and echoing for the last almost 2 years we switched carriers and it's been a nightmare ever since. Our contract is up with them in Aug and we are done with them.

I haven't really noticed that, but rarely do I stay on calls very long, haha.  I wouldn't at all be surprised if our privacy is completely gone and all of our calls are being recorded and listened to.  I hope that this isn't the case, but I have already seen too many examples of stuff like this actually happening when it shouldn't, so I wouldn't be surprised at all.

Nope, can't say that I have but a few days ago in a tornado I couldn't get my phone to work. We had a few touch down a few miles around us.
