    I solved this issue by turning the down the volume to a reasonable level when using the speaker and leaving my phone hanging over the edge of my desk so the sound propagates out instead of bouncing back off the surface of my desk. I haven't had any issues since I started using my speakerphone like this. Using a case would not give the sound coming out of the speaker anywhere to go other than in to the microphone of the phone. A compromise for an otherwise awesome phone in my opinion.

    I solved my problem by switching to a silicone case.

    So I guess that works too! Though, I always get the feeling that the silicone cases aren't nearly as protective as the other cases are. I don't know, I don't use cases often.

    I like silicon , they are soft yet still allow for a good grip. They also provide a bit of bounce in the rare chance the device takes a tumble.

    Edit- my above statement is about PHONE CASES :P

    There is an issue with the way the internals of the phone were placed together. You can actually get rid of this problem by opening up the phone and placing a "shield" made of pretty much anything ie paper, cardboard, rubber, etc around the bottom microphone. The top microphone is for noise reduction and doesn't factor into the echo echo.

    The silicone cases have always been the best for my situation. They provide a shock absorber, but most importantly keep the phone from sliding around while at work. Most of the cases out there intensified the echo echo due to their composition and the way they seated themselves around the bottom microphone. The silicone cases didn't do that for me and I tried several.

    That is good information to know. That will factor in my case purchase. I still have yet to buy one.

    There is no question about the poor placement of the mic and speaker. Any engineer with half a brain should know you don't place those two things in close proximity to each other. When you couple this with the design of the OtterBox it is a big problem. Not only was i getting the echo issue but all kinds of strange sounds and feedback. If you look at the inside of the back of the OtterBox you can see a thin rubber or foam backing that stops before it reaches the speaker hole. Obviously this will leave a small gap that will allow sound to travel inside the case and straight to the mic. Working with Ollie's suggestion i took a piece of thin adhesive backed rubber that i happened to have in my odds drawer and stuck it around the speaker hole of the OtterBox. This seems to have done the trick
