I recently bought the s9 plus and noticed something odd about it (was like this right out of the box) when I charge the phone I can hear a strange whistling coming from the phone speaker, and the call quality is strange as well I can hear whistling or crackling when the conversation goes dead silent. I'm not sure if there is a issue with my phone or if this is a all around s9 plus issue, because it happened from day one with the phone.

Are you sure the charging whistle is coming from the phone and it's speaker because my phones chargers that are fast / rapid chargers all have a whistling sound either while charging or when they hit 100% charge. If it's the charger it's normal it seems on fast chargers.

You can always return the phone during the 15 day return window.  It just needs to be in like new condition with all its packaging.

If you past that then you can send it in for repair by bringing to your local Koodo kiosk. Just make sure it is from the phone because I thought it was the phone as well at first when it was the charging block. Happened on all my Samsung's and my Moto AND I think my LG fast chargers as well but I don't remember about that one.

Happy to say koodo is sending me a replacement, as I was talking to customer support he heard the squeal from the headset.
