Hello Openmoko Community!

As users of the Openmoko Neo FreeRunner GTA02 versions A5 & A6, you  
may have experienced an audio buzz while making a phone call.   
Openmoko has identified the issue and upgraded the hardware to fix  
this issue.  The GTA02 version A7 phones are now available and include  
this fix.

In response to this audio buzz issue, Openmoko has implemented a  
program by which owners of GTA02 version A5 & A6 FreeRunners can have  
their phones reworked to an electrical revision similar to version  
A7.  All owners of version A5 & A6 FreeRunners are eligible for this  
program. SDG Systems (SDG), the US Master Distributor of the  
FreeRunner, will be performing the necessary revision work.

To review the details of this program and to participate, please go to  
the SDG online store located at, select Openmoko on  
the Catalog page, select "Buy Now" for the Neo FreeRunner versions A5  
& A6 Audio Buzz - Quality Enhancement Service, and complete the  
registration and checkout process.  For each phone returned for  
rework, you will receive a complimentary FreeRunner replacement  
battery to offset your shipping fees.  For those interested in  
purchasing additional phones, coupon code 5CZ8HT54, redeemable only at  
the SDG online store, is available for $30 off the retail price of  
$389 for the version A7 FreeRunner.  The coupon code has no quantity  
restrictions and expires on 7/31/09.

Participants' phones needing reworked MUST be returned to SDG by  
Wednesday, July 15, 2009, to qualify for this program.

For any additional assistance or questions, please email buzzfix at 

We appreciate your cooperation as we work to resolve this matter.

SDG Systems & Koolu, Inc.
