Just lately my earpiece has been distorting the incoming callers. That's the earpiece on the phone not the headset.

Has anyone else had this problem with their SF2 or have I got a duff part going on. The phone's about 18 months old now but if I can I'd rather not replace it (lack of funds/love the phone).

So, I'd guess a repair would be the best way but has anyone else stripped one of our phones down to that level or am I entering a minefield with that idea??

Any help would be appreciated :)

You may find a factory reset or even installing a new rom may solve your problem. I would do these first before assuming a hardware error.

Also, have you played with volume control? On max I'm sure it's normal for it to sound distorted.

Tried all of that and decided to blast it out in case of dirt being in there - happened to try sucking on it and got a little pop and it's all sorted!

Looks like there's a membrane in there that got distorted and needed re-positioning :)
