Thank you for doing this!
I have a full body invisible shield on my freerunner, is this okay to send in?  It can still be opened per usual, but I just wanted to make sure it was okay first.

Is there any way we could perhaps pay extra and get the GPS capacitor, Bass Fix, and Recamping fix as well?
If not, thats fine....the buzz fix is really the only one that matters....the others have good enough software work-arounds.

Thanks again!

Subject: Openmoko Neo FreeRunner GTA02 versions A5 & A6 Audio Buzz - Quality    Enhancement Service

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.
