I too have noticed high-pitched buzz intermittently with weak GSM signal,
and callers have complained loudly and repeatedly about echo.  I tried FSO
M4 for a few days and was quite happy with it overall (apart from echo),
until for some reason (something I broke editing my way through /etc
probably) it stopped registering GSM, always timed out trying to enable GSM
via dbus.  So I flashed the newest SHR in its place - which incorporates
FSO M4 and suffers the buzz and echo as well.  (NOT disparagement of FSO
M4, just my itch to play with the newest SHR ;)
