I get this non stop static on my line while having phone calls. It's not new and has been going on for months now...It comes and goes, but this time it seems like its permanent and it's really bad. I made an appointment with the apple store to see if they can help...But it seems like a hardware problem. I don't have insurance for the device...So am I basically just screwed? I was really hoping they would just send me a 4s or something for being a loyal customer. This phone is only 2.5 years old, I wouldn't expect it to crap the bed like this.
