Why do I have an echo on my phone?

At times you may experience an echo on your line which is often only heard by one of the users.  

Problem

The sound from the microphone in the mouthpiece is circling back into the phone's earpiece causing the caller to hear an echo of his voice. 

Cause

This is often a problem caused by a time lag. The echo can also be caused if the recipient's phone is too loud, causing the received audio to enter the microphone on the mouthpiece of the recipient's phone.
