Question Static/Cracking Noise in BlueTooth Phone Connection

Good day everyone,

I recently started having people I speak to on a regular basis begin complaining about my Bluetooth mobile phone connection. To the best of my knowledge nothing has changed. I am using the same phones with the same iOS version, placing them in the same areas, nothing at all different in the car....

Has anyone had this happen to them? Once it started, it happens all the time now.

Help!

What kind of phone do you have? (It sounds like an iPhone after re-reading.)

I really hate talking on the phone so I minimize that activity as much as I can, but I've noticed when I stream music via Bluetooth on my Samsung S3 that I experience the crackling. It's very annoying.

I've paired friends' iPhone5s to my car, using Spotify as well, and there's no crackling.

I have been getting same issue from Bluetooth music streaming with iPhone 5. Didn't have any crackling sound with Bluetooth music from iPhone 4.

Mine just started. I have an iPhone 5 and everything has been great. No issues what-so-ever. If I take the phone off Bluetooth and use the handset normally, no interference or crackling. I've never had this issue and am very spoiled. I don't like to talk on the phone, but it is fantastic in the car over Bluetooth when I have to...and now its broken!

I have a Galaxy Nexus and it has the crackly audio. My iPhone 4S is perfect. Personally I think it's an android thing, but I just hate my galaxy for a number of reasons.
