sounds like a tape rewinding and call drops

Anonymous

in my house when I get near a window, the phone makes a sound like a tape rewinding at high speed and the call drops.... new phone and this issue occurred w old phone as well.  Signal is very iffy at the best of times but this is really annoying.

no logic to the happening, mobiles or landlines - was on with an insurance provider today and the call scrambled again.

what happens if you set you phone to 2G (GSM Only) and make calls?

Try to change the setting on one of your kids phones

in a Sony Xperia, Goto Settings -->  ... More --> Mobile Networks --> Preferred network type * GSM only

That option won't be possible on a phone bought from Three as we're a 3G network, so @Anonymous, you may need to choose WCDMA Only or 3G Only for this test.
