Take a set of headphones (Apple is the best one's for this job! :P)
Cut off the plug on your Apple headphones. (Told you!)
Plug the plug into your headset jack on your Droid OG.
Make a call!
It does NOT make sense, but I figured it out one day when useing skype on my wifi. Then my freind could not hear me, I plugged headphones in to listen to music, then my other freind called me on skype and WALA! it heard him from the phone and he coule hear me thru the MIC.
Thanks for reading my post!

The headphone port has three connectors: one for left ear, one for right ear, one for mic.
If you have a headset with microphones plugged in, it reroutes all three to that output. In this mode, however, if you turn speaker phone on, it will reroute to your speaker-phone function.
Now, if something happens inside that port, something falls in for example, the phone would think that you have a mic plugged in. The top two connectors remain untouched, so it doesn't think you have headphones plugged in, and that's why it doesn't reroute the sound. However, the bottom connection is shorted, so it thinks you have a mic plugged in, thus turning off the phone's mic. Now people can't hear you.
This explains why it happens to PEOPLE, and is software/os/hardware independent. People have habits. I listen to a lot of music, and this problem has been happening off and on for a while now. I've found that if I clean out the headphone port, the problem goes away.
Thank you thank you! It DOES make sense!
