I will try chamfering the pads, it's worth a try.  I have put about 1000 miles on the pads and the rotors were turned.  I think it's the material the pads are made of.  They don't seem to squeal until I have driven a few miles and braked several times and the pads get warmed up.  It doesn't do it every time, it comes and goes.
