Question:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


I recently have been having issues with people hearing me when i call them or i receive their calls. My sound works perfectly through Facetime and thru mic apps. What gives? Do I need to return my iphone to have this fixed? Resetting has not fixed the problem. =(

You are probably pressing mute button and dont know it, look at Proximity sensor problem posts.

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


I am having the same issue, iPhone 4. When I received a call the caller says they cant hear me. I am not using a case and the plastic is off. It works fine when I am on a speaker phone call or, bluetooth, or headset. Must be an issue with the mic or the noise cancelation.

I am having this same problem! Brought it to the apple store - genius had me do a full restore (and then from my backup). It worked for about 24 hours, and then mid call yesterday afternoon, it started again - nobody can hear me! Please help!

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


Im having the SAME issue...did a full restore as well...still same thing. Im NOT pushing mute, or anything. Literally the other person says they hear really bad static, then they cannot hear my voice at all.I call back and they cant hear me. Have tried switching to Edge, and does the same thing. Restarted phone. Same thing.AT&T reprovisioned (reset network) my account and still does the same thing. No one else I know is having this issue.

Same old;Reset.Restore.Return.Sounds like there some funky phones out there.

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


I having the same issue too. It is also affecting iTunes, Pandora, and similar apps. In order to hear calls I have to put the phone on speaker or use the headphones. Not sure what this problem is, but its a problem. Just started today for me.

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


Yeah it seems really random. Just started doing this recently. I can record with apps, etc. So thats why it seems so strange.

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


Okay maybe not the solution for all but this worked for us. Just started 8/12 - Apple suggested restore as new with 4.0.2 which worked for a while. When the problem reoccured today I asked my daughter what apps she had open, especially which ones with audio. Ah the old zippo lighter app, which has the neat feature of blowing into the mic to affect the flame. I had already closed all open apps and callers could hear. She opened zippo and the called - couldnt hear her! She closed zippo (actually uninstalled) and voilà - I could hear her again. Apparently there is a conflict of apps using the mic - if you have this problem try closing all apps that have mic features and try again. Then post your result!!!

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


I have an iphone 4 just got it last month worked beautifull for the first month then one day out of nowhere i started having this problem of callers can not hear me anymore. so when i call a mobile or a landline its the same, sometimes it just does not work at all and sometimes it works for about 15 secs then the caller can not hear me.I tried the following1. restart the phone (on/off) - no luck2. updated to the latest software 4.0.2 - no luck3. restored my iphone to its original settings - no luck4. tightened the two screws at the bottom thinking there might be something loose - no luck5. tried using speaker, bluetooth, ear piece - no luck6. the plastic cover that came with the phone is off so its not like it didnt work from the beginning the phone was working just fine for a month.7. took the sim card out and back in - no luckthe only way for the phone to work is to hit the phone very slightly (hold the phone vertically and just hit it downwards a couple of time against a table) and the callers will start hearing you again, this will work for about 30 secs then the same problem so you gotta keep hitting the phone against an object for it to work everytime the caller cant hear you.its looking like something is loose inside, called apple care and they didnt have an answer, so i am sending the phone to apple for a replacement as this is becoming very frustrating.if you know the answer to this please share!!!

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


This isnt on an iPhone 4, but my girlfriend is experiencing the exact same thing with her 3G. Out of the blue her mic doesnt seem to work anymore. Sometimes it works like 15 seconds speaking with someone, but then her voice gets garbled, or cuts out entirely, and the reciever cant hear a thing she says. As said, this came out of the blue, without dropping the phone or anything. Her 3G is 2 years old now, and never had any problems before. Weve tried replacing the mic, restoring as new, cleaning out the jack-connector and what not. Nothing has helped at all. Its weird, because sometimes it works with the speaker turned on during a call, I mean, you can hear your own voice on the phone, but the reciever cant hear anything. Weve also tried with the headset, and a bluetooth headset, which works fine. Im guessing its a software bug somewhere really. Hope someone could find out whats going on though.

Same here guys and girls. iPhone 4 iOS 4.0.1. Didnt have a micro sim so cut my old one down and it worked perfectly for around 3 weeks. Decided I may as well get the proper micro sim as it is meant to have it and since putting that in callers can not hear me on the phone. Incoming or outgoing same result. Went to my mobile carrier and swapped out to new micro sim....same resultreverted back to old sim.....same result. Just trying to restore to 4.0.2 to see if this helps. Has anyone found a fix?

Got my IPhone 4 on wednesday - everything is working including all speakers: Internet via 3G or WLAN, Music, Games, ... I also can call someone, BUT he cant hear me and also I cant hear him. I can also make outgoing calls - but the same problem. Same problem also when using the original handsfree set. Full reset, also in maintenance mode, did also not solve it. Tried also to change the SIM card - nothing...I already called the support - they will pick up my IPhone 4 on monday!But maybe somebody has an additional idea, before I have to give it away for a few days...

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


Same here. Mic works without problems in Voice Memos but not in calls. Cant use a headset or speaker either. I am NOT pressing mute. Strange thing is I can hear my own voice coming out of the speaker when making calls but nobody at the other end can hear me. Making calls through skype is no problem.Only had my iPhone 4 for just over a week. When I asked the guy from Apples support if it was a known problem he said hed had the exact same problem himself and had to get it repaired..

Well my Iphone 4 was delivered to me in London exactly a week later on 2nd September and has the same issue. I was heading back to India and had no chance to go back to Apple store thinking I may not have restored the software correctly. India apple store refuses to discuss. wonder what to do ?

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


I had that problem one week ago, i hear a sound when i make calls or during a entrance call, and the only solution was to return the iphone to carrier. I tryed restoring, upgrading, everything. The problem is Hardware related, at first worked fine, but after 4 days it got funky.They sent a refurbish one, the solution was solved, but i got a worst one ( WIFI, GPS and bluetooth *****, weak signal on wifi, gps inaccurate).So i do recommend to get to your carrier and get a replacement.

Sadly I am having the exact same issue as everyone else. Ive had every iPhone but the GS since they came out and convinced everyone in my family to get the 3G.

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


Isnt the fact that the mic works in other apps except on phone calls a sign of a software glitch? I have the same problems with calls to others who cannot hear me when the phone is near my ear, on speakerphone, or bluetooth. I have also performed the usual troubleshooting tips with the same results: sporadic success with people hearing me on phone calls...

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


As with somebody else, I tried everything and found out.... tapping the phone on a table seems to bring my voice back. I can hear everything the other person is saying, but they cannot hear me. I have to tap my phone on a table to get them to hear me. After that, I constantly have to ask if they can hear me because it inevitably goes out within a minute, sometimes shorter. I am just glad I am not making important calls!! My phone is amazing in every other way, but this is a major problem.Im taking it back tomorrow... Obviously, it has to be hardware if tapping does the trick.

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


Infact is a hardware problem, is the connectos inside the iPhone that have the problem. A friend of mine had that problem in his new iphone and we just opened it and what we did was to unplug all connectors and plug them again and everything worked fine again. The problem started when he droped the iphone accidentaly.Of cuorse this voids the warranty.Also this steps came from a trusted source ( employer of apple) that he knows.

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


I went to the Apple store 3 days in a row because of the problem. Getting new phones (Im on my 3rd) didnt fix it. Finally they admitted its an intermittent SW problem that has been recognized by Apple. The manager said the next OS update will likely have the fix.

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


Im also having this issue. Some people cannot hear me when Im talking through the phone to them and others can.Just looking to know if its a software or a hardware problem. Ive done all the usual fixes (restoring, turning 3G/WiFi off, etc...) people can hear me fine when im on the speaker phone or headphones but not through the regular mic/phone to ear setup.Its really frustrating as I dont want to be on speaker in a public place.Im hoping a software update will fix this soon otherwise I might have to find a replacement phone.

I am having the same issue the only way is to tap the phone on a table but i have to do that every minute or so. it must be a hardware issue may be the connectors inside the phone, however am not prepared to open up the phone just yet so am taking it back to apple for a replacement.

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


here the same on my new (less than a month) iphone 4im reading a lot about this issue these days and i found out something.like its written above me one of the solutions is tapping a little the phone.another way its shaking it. i tried calling my phone from my house on speaker and i saw that, if i cant hear my voice from the iphone, i shake it and so i can hear the noise from the caller telephone (so now the microphone its working)...yeah.. but you know... its a 650 eur phone.. its not nice shaking it to make it work..thats not all.. obviously i tried a full restore but the problem remains. the funny thing is that Skype works.. if i call the echo123 (the test-call) i can record the message just fine.same thing for the sound recorder.. this issue its only on calls... jeez... its a telephone and it does not call ?im thinking of shipping everything to apple care.. but from italy i have to ship to holland! so i will have to wait at least 15 days to have something back and im afraid that if the work takes a long time i will receive an iOS 4.2 device.i opened my old n70 a thousand times and im quite used to manage electronics devices but risking to avoid the warranty just due to this issue its not worth.has someone the magic fix?

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


Had this problem on iPhone 4 for 2 days: callers or people I call cannot hear me. I can hear them clearly. Multiple restarts & hard resets: no joy. Tried turning off 3G: no joy. I thought it was a network problem until I did a search. As described above, except Skype couldn’t “hear” me either when trying Echo123. Tapping gently on the table worked for 2-3 seconds only. With Telstra Australia. At least some of my friends (callers and callees) are with Telstra as well, but don’t know about all of them. Tried iPhone-provided earphones, same symptoms. Device otherwise working well: speakers OK, games OK. Unrelated to the mute button, since I tried the headset, and also tried “talking into the phone like it was a slice of pizza” -- i.e. face not close to the screen. *Resolved with a restore, and restore from backup, thank goodness.* iTunes 10.0.1, Mac OS X 10.6.4. iOS 4.1 NB: recently installed a Telstra network update through iTunes. Also applied a Speck Fitted Case recently. I think those are red herrings. Also have a iPhone 3GS with iOS 4.1 on same network which is working OK.

i dont know if yours its a complete fix..i restored a lot of times but on my case it dont seems worki cant understand one thing, if this is an hardware connection issue, why its working wih skype?if its a software issue why its not working with a restore or a reset?..maybe im doing something wrong... when you say you restored from a backup what do you mean? what did you do?

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


I had the same problem with my iPhone 4. I had troubles with calls but nothing bad until I updated to 4.1 from 4.0.2 next thing I know is no one can hear me. Sometimes I would get lucky and someone would hear me for a little bit and then it would go out again. I restored my phone a few times, every way possible and nothing fixed it. I could record my voice fine, I could hear others fine, I could do everything but call people or be called and have them hear me. I took it to the store and they gave me a new one on the spot. I have had no problems since. I recommend that everyone who has this issue just get the new phone. I think its a hardware issue with the antenna... its the only thing I could think of.

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


Hi, I had this problem as well until yesterday. I had to shout down the handset at times to be heard. I finally had enough yesterday so returned the phone to 02. I was told Id have to take my phone to the nearest apple store which is 1 hour away. Soon told them that wasnt going to happen and after much arguing on the phone to 02 and in my local store they agreed to swap the handset for a new one. I purchased the phone in August so was out of the 28 day replacement scheme. I dont think a software fix will help this personally so Id suggest a replacement handset is the only way youll fix this. Dont let any shop tell you that they cannot do anything. You have to really persist to get them to do anything. Cheers

Joy lasted for a day. And then now I can only be heard through a wired or bluetooth headset. Built in mic is either inaudible to very very soft on the other end. Skype cant record through internal mic either. Ugh. Peculiar. Restore from backup means press the restore button in iTunes. And then after iTunes erases iPhone, clicking the restore from backup option.

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


Im very confused myself if this is a hardware or software issue, because I sent mine back to AppleCare with the problem. After doing lots of diagnostic checks and tests on the phone, it was returned to me after only a few days because they could not find a thing wrong with it. I also went to my local O2 shop a new sim before this because Apple said that my sim card might be faulty. Again the same problem occurred. Now Im at a position where what do I do next and before you ask, myself and AppleCare have tried restoring and re-installing the 4.1 SW. Next step is maybe to try the 4.2 update when it is released in November. After reading lots of posts on here, this problem is getting more and more wide-spread. Apple needs to recognise this issue and deal with it. Dont get me wrong I love Apple and the iPhone 4, but this is a huge problem and needs sorting out.

I am having the same issue, IPhone 4. When I received a call the caller says they cant hear me. It works fine when I am on a speaker phone call or, Bluetooth, or headset. Must be an issue with the mic or the noise cancelation. Ive bought in Paris and do I have to go to Paris, to solve this issue as the IPhone 4 in my country the warranty is not subject.Thanks!

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


Whoever is having issues with this problem I have found the solution to this problem and it worked for me...I must of called at least 5 people and asked them if they can hear me and everyone of them heard me...what you have to do is open up the phone and at the top where the Noise Cancellation is located there is a metal piece that is covering where a little wire that is connected to the noise cancellation unplug it and plug it back in and press down all the other wires just to be sure they are all in place before putting back the metal piece and you should be all set you should not have any problems with this...if anyone has any questions please contact me via AIM...Gibonni9 I will be glad to help you with this...note do not touch anything else on the phone because if you do your warranty will not be covered anymore.

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


First this is not a SW issue, since I dropped my phone I;m having this issue!I tried unplugging the metal coverer of the top board connectors and pressed all of them.But I get the mic only for one call and than the same hit and call thing.I think this is more than a connector issue but I think pressing on the board solves this temporarily!I seems like moving the board fixes it for a moment. But in long term we will get the issue once again.So far we have noticed that in a Phone Call, Mic and Ear Speaker work with problems but in a Skype call they work just fine.The issue must be in the GSM chip connectivity.We need some very expert advice on this!!

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


Updated: I took my iPhone 4 back to the AT&T store where I purchased it less than a week earlier. They apparently are unable to swap out the phone in the store but they called Apple for me and arranged for Apple to overnight me a replacement for about $30. Im trying to remember the questions they asked but it was something along the lines of, is there something (case, protective film, etc) covering the mic, is there a case on the phone (no), and have you tried swapping the SIM card (AT&T did this). After none of these (sound like hardware not software questions) made any difference they shipped the replacement. Guess what, people can actually hear me on the replacement! It still sounds more muffled than I remember the 2G or 3G version but maybe I had become overly picky since it worked so terribly with the first one.

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


Same problem for me too. And for me too it comes and goes. No matters if people hear me from cell line or from wired line. No voice out from the device.Restoring the phone it works for 10mins, then it stops working.Sent my iphone to apple twice, but theyve sent it back to me saying they cant find the problem. Im waiting for the phone to be back from apple (2nd time), then ill callem for the 10th time and try to make them change my faulty iphone.it suc*s.

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


It is a hardware issue. And if your phone went into a free fall it will present that issue i think something is bad with the new iphone, i had same issue and it started with a drop from less than 2 feet. The only way that worked fine before i took it to carrier was using it on speaker mode or with apple headphones.

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


Sad to say but.... I have exactly the same issue: When I call someone or someone call me, the other person cant hear me after a certain period... This is a very random situation as this problem can happen after 3 minutes or 10 minutes conversation... I tried to restore it without success, issue still appears...I tried the other applications using the voice and it seems there are no microphone issue.Reading through your post afraid me cause it seems this is a recurrent issue. Not sure if it is a SW or HW bug but the number of replies make me think there is a serious issue....Having the phone for only 4 days and I really hesitate to get it back to the supplier as we have one week of reflexion in case we (customer) are not happy with the product to get it back.will let you know if case I have additional info

apple care was really fast. they took my ip4 on monday, tuesday it was in holland and today its just came back... the only problem its the fact that they didnt do anything. they ran the basic tests, they didnt find the symptoms i described (like they wrote to me in the email on tuesday) and so they give me back my ip4 just like i sent to them. but right when i took the phone today i tried a call and the issue remains...so i called again the apple care service and tomorrow they are goning to pick my phone up another time for another ride to holland... i hope this time they will look better...

I made a reservation at the Genius Bar at Applestore Sydney & the phone has been replaced. The guy seemed to know that my microphone was defective when I explained the problem. We tested it in the store, and I got a replacement in 15 minutes. FWIW, the problems with original iPhone were: Other person cannot hear me when I speak into the microphone (like a pizza slice). Other person can hear me if I click the speakerphone icon on the screen and I talk into the phone (like a pizza slice). Voice Recorder can record my voice, but very very softly only. Cant seem to get Skype Call Test to record my voice no matter what I do. Tried restoration.

I had the same problem with an iPhone I bought last Friday. No Microphone during calls, no voice-recording in Memo-Apps and so on. Only exception: when switching on the speakers during a call, people could hear me. Tried out everything without success, until the device was changed this morning into a new one when I brought it back to Apple Store. With the new device, everything works fine.

I have the same problem. Other people cant hear me on calls, I can hear them. The microphone is fine in other apps such as the voice recorder. Doesnt even work with the mic on the earphones or on speakerphone.Tapping a few times temporarily solves it, but a fix is needed - hardware or software.Guess I will go to the Genius Bar on Thursday and ask them to fix it. :/Message was edited by: revolution90

Hello guys,Im from Brazil, have my iphone 4 just a week and Im having exactly the same issue. When I call someone or someone call me, the other person cant hear me.

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


Thanks for the information, had the same frustrating problem and finally found your post after everything else that was suggested here to fix the problem didhn´t work.I disassembled the phone and demounted the cover in the upper part of the iphone (above the battery) where several cable connectors (4) were hooked up to the main board. When lifting those I already noticed that they came off too easily. I reconnected them carefully using some pressure until a the connected with a noticeable little click. After putting everything back together the iphone 4 worked flawlessly. For my opinion there must be a glitch in the (probably automated) assembly process of this phone in China, whereny insufficient pressure is used by the robot connecting these cable shoes to the main board....

About three weeks ago I got my iphone back from Tech. Serv. and they just said to me that it was a software problem. They only reintalled OS again. As soon as I turned on the phone and do the first call I couldnt hear anything and the person I was trying to talk couldnt hear me either. I recieved a note from apple justifiying that the hardware was in perfect conditions. Now the phone stills the same, it works properly when it wants and not when I need it.

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


My wifes phone was having the same problem, just started a week ago. Her iPhone 4 had been working fine for months. Clearly, its not a hardware problem with the mic, because Facetime works fine with audio and video. Rebooting didnt work. Resetting network settings didnt work. Updating iOS 4 didnt work.I saw a previous users post on this thread about having another app running (zippo) that interfered with the mic and decided I would try to shut down all other apps. I knew from my recent experimentation with fast app switching and force quiting apps that unless you force quit an app it will continue running, even after rebooting the phone.So I went through and force quit every app, made a call, and it worked. (Here are some instruction on how to force quit an app. http://www.tuaw.com/2010/06/30/iphone-101-quitting-apps-in-ios-4/ Also note: my wifes phone doesnt have the zippo app, so it wasnt that one.) Well see how long this lasts. Next time it stops working, though, Im going to pay close attention which apps are running, and Ill shut them down one by one until the phone works again, hopefully to isolate an offending app.

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


Our problem has been intermittent for the last few days. The error condition happened again yesterday and I had my wife shut down all her phone apps again, but it still didnt work. Surprising, since thats all it took the first time we fixed it. So I added one additional step: reboot. After rebooting (with no apps running) it worked again. And its still working today.Im trying to figure out by process of elimination which apps tend to be running when the error condition happens. So far, it frankly doesnt make any sense.Was just on the phone with apple and the rep suggested that we do a back up and restore of the phone to factory conditions and test it. Of course, the phone is working at the moment, and Im sure it would still be working after the restore. So this would have only resulted in a false positive (seeming to have fixed the problem). So I pushed back and disagreed about doing the backup/restore, since theres no way to reliably force the error condition in order to test the fix.After the rep asked whether I think its a hardware or software problem, I was placed on hold while she went to track down some more information. While on hold, the call dropped. So, I get to start over

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


same problem - people cant hear me. Really frustraing. The mic was intermittent for the last few weeks, sometimes cutting out during a call, and sometimes not working all day. Lots of hard resets, shutdowns, etc, but nothing really worked. Also did the restore through itunes which didnt help. Voice Memo worked fine. Earbud mic did not work on calls either. So I tend to believe the theories about the noise cancelling mic having a problem, but the main mic is fine. I got a replacement unit at my genius appt and so far, new phone is good.

Add me to the list of those now having problems with the Iphone 4 mic problems. I can make a call, I can hear the other person on the other end of the phone, but he cannot hear me. The Iphone has a lot of neat gadgets, but is just a poor phone. Annoying beyond all measures. I do not think it is a hardware issue. Its too coincidental that so many people are having the same problem. Unless Apple fixes this problem, I will never, ever purchase an Apple product again.

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


We did a restore of my wifes phone to factory settings a few days ago, knowing that this is what Apple would probably insist on doing to eliminate the possibility of a software error (like a buggy app or something). My plan was to let her use the phone normally (though inconveniently, since it doesnt have any of her apps on it now), wait until the error happened again, and then take it into the Mac store to have them observe it. So far, it hasnt happened yet, to my surprise. She hasnt used the phone as regularly as she had been, so it isnt an apples to apples test just yet. But if after a few more days the problem doesnt resurface, then I am going to conclude that it is not a hardware problem but a software problem, at which point well probably start adding back apps and such carefully, watching closely to see if the error happens again, similar to how we introduced new foods carefully to our kids watching closely for any food allergies.

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


Im having the same problem. Apple replaced my old iPhone 4 (the screen shattered after I dropped it) for free (THANKS!!!) four days ago. I started having this problem on my old phone about a month and a half ago and this new phone is having the same problems right off the bat. Like everyone says above, I can hear the other person perfectly but they cant hear me. Sometimes it works when I am on speaker and sometimes not. I have tried the tap it on the table trick and it didnt work. I believe that this is a software problem. My girlfriend is on a 3gs with iOS 4.0 and does not have this problem. I did not have this problem when I originally bought the first iPhone 4... thus, a software problem. Apple needs to fix this quick! I dont feel like busting out my old Motorola ROCKR!

i had the samr problem until a few days ago. sent the phone in to apple and received it back with no repair.this is how i solved it:removed sim card, cleaned up / carefully scratched the contacts of the sim, reinserted sim into phone. done. no soldering, no disassembly necessary.afterwards i had no problems anymore - seems like iphone4 has a very week contact to the microsim. at least in my case mic worked fine, just no voice data went out.maybe this helps a few others out there, too. it might also be worth testing the phone with another sim card.

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


I have bought an Iphone in france in last august and a week ago I just had the same problem. As I live in Brazil, I have no other choice other than fix it or buy another phone. So, Im trying hard finding a solution.Not to restore the phone again and again (as I would an eagerness to JB again) I tried different things, with some methodology testing .First I gave up the chance of being something on software, it shows almost for sure its a hardware issue.1) By switching cells, the micro-SIM used, with DX adapter used in a smartphone Samsung, I ended up switching to iphone with the iphone still on.I removed the tray and insert the SIM, he quickly recognized and decided to begin testing.It worked. I made some calls simulating proximity sensor error , muting, speakerphone, BT headset ... the connection lasted much longer than the initially reported: 30sFrom 10 to 10 minutes retraced the test successfullyHypothesis # 1: Bad SIM contact with the mainboard.I thought about it much until a phone call to my girlfriend - he failed to 3min.I repeated the test, the SIM, removing it and inserting it again, I returned to the initial problem - SO? No success at all.2) When reading about the problem and see what works the thing about tapping-bottom, I decided to investigate how frequent and heavy taping should be trying something different.I figured that squeezing the iPhone (screen x rear end) the bad contact could be reestablished by magic or something.I tried to tighten and tighten at my full strenght... Little success, made some noise when it worked, which reminded me of the tapping process and returned to the original test.Tap here with finger tap, tap it on my knee...Hypothesis # 2: Error function / connection mic speaker connector bundle to the motherboard.Actually this is a bad contact or else oxidation of components in a connection through radiation, I guess it must disable sound components.SO? No success, but with little success or future damage as possible coming from the tapping process.3) I used a tip from this forum to test 3G connection problems, wifi etc ...Really seemed to make sense, since issue # 1 had to do with SIM card, and run for almost an hour had been over a wi-fi network.I decided to experiment with different connection scenarios, thetering, etc..Hypothesis # 3: problem of connection types and antenna hardware error and inferring than in the microphone.No effect any change connection, disconnect data over network and so on...SO? No success at all.4) Returning to imagine a possible problem with the mic speaker connector bundle I imagined that a poor contact between the tracks of the connector being a troublemaker, and this was the reason for my Motorola v600 fail miserably in 2003.With a magnifying glass and flashlight, I noticed that there was but a small spot of rust or oxidation on the connectors then - especially those that were used.My intention was to take an eraser and clean these connectors, indeed impossible because of their location.Plugged the cable and removing them from an angle position, so I decided to clean by scraping these connectors.Hypothesis # 4: Bad tracks in connector.The tests were promising. The mic came back to work without the violence of the tapping process but the duration of the solution was not the most satisfactory, but I avoided smash the phone on the wall each phone call.Another test in this regard was to twist the connector as the turning of a key in the ignition of a car. Oddly enough it worked well - especially in a clockwise direction, literally firing up the car ...SO? It worked relatively well. Now I carry a USB cable connected to the iphone all the time, so I give links in a little twist and the problem is reduced.Im looking for spare parts to try to change something, being cheaper than buying a new iphone, or maybe study how the primary connector and the connections with the main board to try to reestablish the connection if it is compromised.Please apple... help us! Willya?

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


I have the same problem here. Only during calls. When I try to use skype, it works perfectly.

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


I too have had this problem. It isnt all of the time however, it seems to be pretty consistent as of the last week or two. Apple replaced the phone with a new one and still later that day it happened again. I switched micro-sims with another iphone 4 while it was having the problem, and it still had the same problem. I went back to the Apple store and they said to try a restore and set-up as new phone (not happy to lose my back-up, but if it fixes the problem... I can deal). Restored the phone and it appeared to work fine. I have hands free calling (Microsoft Sync) in my 2010 F150. After making several error free phone calls, I paired the phone with Sync. Again I made several error free calls. After a couple of start/stops of the truck, the phone began acting up (mic crackling- on their end- and then cutting out). The problem even happens when truck is off and I am far away from truck (and this is on a fresh restored phone). I have since turned off Bluetooth, restarted phone, and can again make error free calls. I am going to hold off on pairing to Sync and see if I can run error free. Problem- Microphone appears to work in voice memo and other apps, callers cannot hear you and you can hear them clearly, if problem happens mid-call the caller complains about static and then they hear nothing, the mute button IS NOT on, mic input could be set to phone or hands-free device with no change, restarting phone does not fix problem (not even temporarily), switching Sims does not work.... I am leaning towards a bluetooth problem here. I guess I will try running it a day or two with out pairing to Sync and see if it works okay. I use my phone fairly often (about 3000 minutes/month) oh, and I love my phone, have no regrets, and will work through this problem

I have requested Apple Care UK to try it for making calls more than once then you’ll find the problem.I sent it to apple care UK and they send it back to me saying that they couldn’t find any problem with it. When I received it, it still has the same problem. Then I send it back again to them with more explanation asking them to try it more than once as the problem sometimes appear in the second call, but they do NOTHING. They just send it back in an unbelievable time without fixing it, it still has the same problem while the service status is : Diagnosing product . How can they send it back to me while the status and the problem still the same .my Serial number: 81034RF7A4T Please tell me how to contact Apple care administration because I’m complaining that nobody is having a serious action regarding my problem.I have spent money and time for nothing. Now I’m asking Apple to replace my IPhone 4 if they cannot fix it.It’s a shocking for us here to know that Apple have a very bad service and that they don’t care about their customer’s benefits. How can a huge company like Apple waste my time and my money for noting.Message was edited by: Samer Al-Baqshi

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


My wife is having the same problem with her iPhone 4. She did drop it however. I have taken it apart to investigate and I believe its the sim card connector. No one can hear her at all when she calls and mine works fine. I swapped our sim cards and her phone worked perfect (with my sim card) until 5 minutes into talking. I figured there must me a loose connection in the sim card connector. I ordered a new one online and will see how it works. If I have any luck I will tell.

This may work. It worked for me. Go into Settings, then choose Sounds. On Ringer and Alerts, I put the volume down to zero and then all the way up. This solved the problem. (At least for now)

Thanks Bluerunner. It worked for hers too for now. Hopefully its permanent.

Unfortunately same issue also for me It seems to be ok after a restore, so it was software problem not hardware. -I would like, and pretend as costumer, to have a GOOD software update without stupid alarm clock bugs, and stuff like this one.-

Same issue, problems here. Apple has replaced iP4, worked for an hour, then back to same prob. AT&T says needed new SIM card; took it today to AT&T, replaced SIM, they called me in the store, they couldnt hear me. Sending me back to Apple today (70 miles roundtrip).Im a longtime Mac owner, Apple customer. This may be the final straw.

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


Just posting to say me too. In fact Im now on my 3rd iPhone 4 in 5 days. The first one kept rebooting itself and going into recovery mode so I never actually got to use it. The 2nd one developed the issue of this thread after less than 2 days. I could not be heard on any inbound or outbound call whether through the mic, speakerphone or bluetooth headset. The problem started out as infrequent and was a mild annoyance but became more and more prevalent and finally just stopped working as a phone altogether. Im convinced this is a hardware problem and the only permanent solution is to get your phone replaced ASAP. I hope Apple gets their QC issues under control here as this is a bit ridiculous and only exacerbates the perception that the iPhone is a great palmtop computer but a crappy phone.

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


I guess the problem could be with the voice encoder for calls. Because mic works perfectly.Im stuck with the phone in Argentina (bought it in England) and here theres no official Apple support. The warranty is until august though...Anyone knows what can I do? PS: iOS 4.3 GM doesnt work either.

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


Add me to the list too. For the last week, with increasing frequency, callers cannot hear me when I answer a call or the call drops after a minute or two. My phone also works on speaker- but I can see from earlier posts that even this may stop. Sigh. I really liked my phone until this. I dont keep a landline and so this is very frustrating!

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


Had the iPhone 4 since Launch day, and now is starting to happen...So I text my wife and daughter when this happens.Sometimes they can hear me and other times its....Can you hear me now I restored many times, tried to reset all settingsBut no luckThe mic works with other apps but not the phone...Apple please help !!!!

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


Just to add to the known.... Dito to what everyone has said:Not on mute, transferred to speaker phone and back, rebooted, reset all settings, restored, restored as fresh iPhone, exchanged for new iPhone4, put in new sim card, swapped sim card with other user of same network, tested mic on phone calls = same issue, tested microphone on voice memos = same issue, and now out of options.....To note the fault is intermittent as mentioned before; sometimes people hear me on speaker mode, other times not; sometimes they hear me on normal mic mode, other times not. Additionally: There are reports by people listening that they hear a lot of static as if standing under a shower head turned on, then the nothing....Since restoring to older OS version has not reported success by others, I am not going to entertain myself with that.Back to Apple Store for another iPhone4 and hope I get lucky.... tough call when you work full time...For now, I have bought a cheap phone, and diverted all my calls to this phone. This allows me to interact with the callers and use the iPhone for texting, apps, internet, mail etc.sighOf interest what are the specs for your iPhones? perhaps a particular model issue?Mine:O.S = 4.2.1Size = 32GB (registers at 29.1GB)Colour = BlackModel = MC319LLCarrier = 3 Mobile AustraliaLocation = Perth metro area (near the ocean)To date, it is sounding like a hardware fault. The closest thing sounds like connection issues oxidising on the main board or something? Possible humidity? Sea salt in the air perhaps? (no idea, grabbing at straws here.... Here is a toast for a possible solution in the near future. *cheers

Has anyone had any success or resolution to this problem? I have been having the same problem for about 2-3 weeks with my iphone 4 as well. My phone is about 6 months old and it only just started. After reading everything here, it seems as though nothing is helping, even replacing the phone several times. Updating, resetting, deleting apps.... It is a huge hassle to get to make and appointment and get to an apple store when working and when you have 2 small kids. But if a new phone would fix it I would make the effort. Just doesnt seem as though that is the solution... This really is a pain. What a shame....I love my iphone!

Mine just started doing this on Wednesday. Took it to the apple store and they thought I may have had too many apps open. Tried that, restarted and still having problems. I just upgraded to 4.3 this past weekend... Im wondering if that caused the problem. Very frustrating. A Droid might be calling me name.

Exact same problem here. No resolution to this yet?Just restored and cleaned out a lot of apps. Worked for a day, now back to one-sided phone conversations again

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


Add my name to the list. I upgraded to 4.3 (ATT GSM) last Saturday and suddenly on Wednesday nobody could hear me on either my Jawbone Icon or ERA. I could clearly hear them but all they heard was a deafening silence.Occasionally I could get it to work by calling with the Bluetooth headset turned off and after the other party answered I would turn the headset on and then it would work.I have done several hard resets on the iPhone and reloaded the Jawbone software (twice) to no avail. As much as I love my iPhone, an Android phone is looking more appealing unless Apple can release reliable hardware and software.

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


Exact same issue. Bought phone on launch date...worked perfectly.Suddenly other people couldnt hear me. All other microphone usages work fine.I called up support...they suggest backing up phone, and restoring as new. Did that...worked fine for a day or so...and then stopped working again. Guess I am going to have to get a replacement (but whos to say it wont happen again 8 months down the road?)****!

I have an iPhone on 4.2.1, staying there for reasons to be left unstated. This issue started recently. I was planning on (reluctantly to say the least) updating to 4.3.1, but it seems as if that does not fix anything. Ugh, I do NOT want to drive 2 hours to my local Apple store, and I do NOT want a phone running 4.3.1. No known fix?Apple... youre making me really want a Droid. My friends Droid X is amazing.

I encountered a similar problem after purchasing a 3rd party leatheret case. The top part actually disabled the proximity sensor. At first, I wasnt even aware of this sensor so I figured.... oh great, just like my piece of crap HTC Android (where holding the phone to ear did everything from mute, dial digits, hang up) LOL Very pleased to have left the crazy anarchy of the Android world!But this forum kindly enlightened me and cutting out a piece of the fake leather enabled the proximity sensor again. Works perfectly now.BTW, I certainly hope your issue is as non-serious as that.

i found temporary solution for this problem. you got this problem when you are in 3G network. if you disable 3G network (Setting-general- network and disable 3G) network become Edge. Now you will be able to make call without any problem. but this also a headache for me, when ever you want to access internet, it needs 3G network. so every time have to change it in to 3G. APPLE! solve this problem quickly.......

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


I disagree with 3G solutions. Same happens to me without 3G network.

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


Add me to the list. Within days after I upgrading to iOS 4.3, people couldnt hear me on the speaker or regular mic or even with a hard-wire headset!! Often, people could hear me for maybe the first 10-15 seconds. I tried hard resets etc. I took my phone to the Apple store after spending an hour trying to communicate with clients (Im self-employed and this is my only phone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!). I had to use clients land lines and refer to my address book on my phone for numbers. When I arrived at the Apple store (Emeryville, CA, USA), my phone worked fine! They ran diagnostics and said it was ok and there was no record of dropped calls, which WASNT the problem, so so what. They told me to replace the SIM card at AT&T because a bad SIM card can cause that problem (huh?), so I walked across the street to AT&T, which replaced my SIM card on the spot for free. It worked for about 7-12 days, until today. This morning, after putting one client on hold and taking another call, then switching back and forth a couple of times, the problem reoccurred. For an hour or so, no one could hear me on the speaker or regular mic with incoming or outgoing calls. I borrowed my girlfriends phone and called my clients back.Apple seems to win by proving that my iPhone passes Apples diagnostic tests. Good for them. The phone aspect of my iPhone is NOT a luxury and is my only phone. Good for Apple for winning the argument. Im seriously considering switching to a Droid phone. The only problem is I like MobileMe to sync my calendars and address book over the air to my Mac. I think I can work around this by switching to a gmail address and use gmails calendar and address book, both of which sync over the air with iCal and Apple Address Book. Any ideas?

So I wrote about having this problem on March 11. Have found a solution albeit temporary and a little dodgy. When it becomes apparent that others cant hear me I whack the back of the phone and presto they can hear me for the rest of the call. No joke. Whats with that?

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


Again:Problem is with the voice encoder. It only affects phone calls and thats why it doesnt affects other apps.If you wack it, you fix it but for a small time. Its a bad contact.The only solution is to go to your Apple store and ask for a new one , or open, find the voice encoder and try to fix the bad contact.Cant believe so many shi tty phones (mine included)

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


It happened again this afternoon during an incoming call. I whacked it on the back with my hand and it started working as someone recommended in another post. Obviously, somethings wrong, and another poster said the contact is bad and Apple should replace the phone. Im not positive thats the problem, though. It makes sense but what about my case (big Otterbox) confusing the proximity sensor or iOS screwing up with 4.3? Right now, for my iPhone, I think its the loose connection since a whack obviously had to adjust something physical, not software, though maybe the proximity sensor is affected by a whack, too.

I sent my phone to service. Im reporting results after it comes back (estimate: 1-2 weeks)

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


Same problem from my side, with same effects. Clearly it is an internal hardware connection; sometimes the voice is totally lost, in other cases you can hear a crispy noise (like bad cable connectivity)I can (sometimes) recover it by pushing firmly with the index finger in the middle back part of the iPhone during the call. I sent my phone for the second time back to Apple (first time they said problem cant be reproduced). I hope this time they fix it or replace the device. Will keep you informed.

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


I had that problem, but I just fixed it! I opened the voice memo app and then closed it again. And now it works again! Try closing any app that may be using the mic, in my case was the voice memo app, but try others too if that one does not work.....Hope this helps....

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


Sounds like Apple has varying hardware AND software issues with iPhone 4s audio input.In my case and in many others, turning off the phone and even hard resets, which turn off all background apps, too, didnt/doesnt help. I almost never use any other voice apps, plus physically smacking the back of my iPhone restored audio input, greatly implying a hardware problem. With my iPhone 4, the only way I could see that the problem still might be only software-related is if the software driver(s) that controls one or more audio-input-related hardware misinterprets/ignores/loses contact with hardware until a physical jolt causes the hardware to send a signal/data large enough that the software driver notices. This seems unlikely to me, so I currently greatly lean toward hardware problem as the culprit.Isnt this pathetic that Apple leaves its consumers to figure this !@#$ out! Here we are on Apples own forum, stumbling through the night of audio input problems on a PHONE as its manufacturer sits idly by eating a sandwich while reading our posts. Apple wants to be a consumer electronics company and not just a computer company, but thats a pipe dream FAIL.If Steve Jobs goes, Apple will experience the 1990s all over again. But at least next time Linux/UNIX will have better support via Droid, which has the advantage of not being propped by an inherently unstable cult of personality benevolent dictatorship.Heres the definition of telephone from dictionary:...a system that converts acoustic vibrations to electrical signals in order to transmit sound, typically voices, over a distance using wire or radio. But to Apple its no big deal that its PHONE often cant do that!

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


Hey there,I have iPhone 4 on 4.2.1 (so its not the 4.3 update for my case) and started experiencing this problem a couple days ago... people couldnt hear me during a phonecall, but my microphone worked fine when I tried to use Voice Recorder. Fed up with Apples forum not quickly displaying answers, I went somewhere else and discovered that sometimes dust gets into the headphone jack which causes the phone to think headphones are plugged in. In this case, using speakerphone will work, or TO FIX IT, you can simply clean the headphone jack. I plugged in headphones a few times and blew air into it, then reset the phone to be sure, and it worked!(Btw, it was not fixed by the reset, as I tried that before cleaning the jack, and it didnt work... But I felt an extra reset after the cleaning couldnt hurt)If this doesnt work, many other causes have been suggested on the forum... Just go to the latest posts right away, as earlier posts are all the same question over and over.

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


In mine and many others case posted in the this forum, no audio input works during an iPhone 4 call: not the speakerphone, regular mic or even the physical headset jack. Only whacking the back of the phone restores audio input.

I have the same problem with my iPhone4. Its been happening for 2-3 weeks now off and on. There is no rhyme or reason when it happens.

Hi Im Peter from the Netherlands, I am also suffering the same problem, it has nothing to do with firmware or jaulbreaking, its the phone!

I was on 4.1 for months and al of a sudden this problem appeared two weeks ago, by the way my phone is approx. from july 2010, I have installed it as a new iphone, I have updated the firmware 2 times , nothing seems to make a difference, it also does not matter if you are jailbroken or not because I know someone who has the same problem that started also a few weeks ago and her phone is as standard as can be. Does anyone know if Apple has responded in any way to this problem?

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


FYI, I struggled with this issue for a few weeks (restoring, upgrading, resetting, etc.) and today I took it back to the Genius Bar and after they verified the problem (thankfully it happened every time) they replaced it for me. New one seems OK for now.

 

Woohoo!

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


My phone has been great in every way, until about a week or so. People couldnt hear me. It was an intermittent issue, so I rebooted the phone, called support, tried all kinds of stuff.  Well, today I went to Apple store. They checked it out. Gave me a new, replacement phone. Hate restoring a new phone from scratch, but glad it works!

Answer:Iphone 4 people cant hear me during calls


This has been happening to me recently. I tried everything from turning off the 4G, using my headphones/speaker, software upgrades, complete restore, and disabling the cellular data. I finally took it to the Apple store last night. They ran the diagnosis and everything came back fine but my memory to run aplications was very low. I had never know that every app I ever opened was still running in the background, and that is why no one could hear me on the phone. To see what apps you have running unlock your phone then once on the home screen, double click the home button. To delete the apps that are running, hold the app down and press the delete button. Snce I did this, everyone can hear me and my phone is running MUCH faster. I had about 30 different apps open (this includes texts, phone, clock...anything you have ever opened).

RESOLUTION

 

I spoke to tech support and one thing they had me try was to toggle bluetooth on/off

Settings/General/Bluetooth

Toggle it on, then off

 

I fixed my problem, but only temporarily. 

 

Support said if the issue persists, to bring/send the phone in for replacement, which is what Im going to do.

FINAL RESOLUTION

 

Ended up taking the phone back to where i got it (Radio Shack).  They tried to insist that I dropped it, which i hadnt (the phone is only a couple weeks old).  After some convincing, they replaced it for a new one.  Lets hope this one doesnt have the same issue.

Help!

This appears to have happened to me today.

This morning I received a call and all was fine.

This afternoon someone tried to call me and I was saying hello, hello, hello and there was nothing.

I then put the phone onto speaker and I could hear the caller and the could hear me. Apparently though, they could hear me all the time on previous call....

 

I have read what everyone has been writing and have an appointment with the genius bar tomorrow evening.

 

It appears a lot of people have had their phones replaced - this would be great. Mine is over a year old and I bought it from O2 and not Apple. Does this matter? I also dont have insurance.

 

Can anyone give some advice!

I have the same issues for months for one of my iphone 4 and another was just getting this problem yesterday, this is not the worst part of story, the worst of that is, I am now in China (I bought the first iphone 4 when I was in London, and bought second one when I was in Singapore, I need to use two different numbers as I am always travelling cross the region), and the apple store in China told me that since my iphone was not original purchased from China, so they dont allow to fix the problem, I need to go back to where I bought it to get it fix.
