Mic not working, help!
My og droid took a small spill and now the only way I can use my phone is by using speaker phone. Does this make sense to anyone shouldnt regular phone calls and speaker use the same mic? Any help would be great. I am running cm7 and did a battery pull but no help.<br>Thanks
No, it doesn't make sense.

You might try a master reset-make sure your info's backed up. A lot of times it can be it can be an app that is causing one mic not to work. If the master reset doesn't work-you can call into Verizon with no troubleshooting and get it replaced, provided its still under the one year manufacturer's warranty.
Factory Data Reset is what you want. It is in menu/settings/privacy. While in Privacy make sure Backup and Restore are checked.
After the phone restarts and you have logged back into your gmail account be sure to answer yes to "backup and restore by google" questions. Lately Google has been very good about restoring all my apps (paid and free). Some phone settings are even being restored.

Thanks for the help guys but nothing has worked.
If the phones not horribly damaged from the spill, as long as your under that one year manufacturers warranty I would try calling into Verizon Wireless. Advise them you already did a factory data reset and it did not work. They can tell if you've done a factory data reset by looking at your account-the over the air programming will show. But as long as its within the year warranty and the phones not physically cracked or damaged they have to replace it.
I'm having the same issue. I've been doing a LOT of research on this problem over the last month and have found a LOT of these types of threads that span over a year. The results are always the same: the thread withers into oblivion without resolution. People who don't have the problem make the same suggestions (I've yet to see an original suggested course of action that ended in resolution).
Here's the breakdown of what is going on (in simplest terms): microphone does not work except on speaker phone.
The stories are generally all the same: 1. get the phone, use it for a short time 2. calls begin sounding scratchy 3. shortly after that people no longer hear and the owner of the device hears, "hello? Hello?" 4. owner discovers that speaker phone, bluetooth and headsets do work (speaker phone is what we're interested in though) 5. posts issue on internet forums and tries every suggestion to no avail 6. lives with a phone that operates as a phone only when on speaker phone (which always works perfectly btw)
My first theory is, my research on the issue indicates that the problem is not hardware related, not (directly) a downloaded app, but in the OS itself. Everybody has tried: removing apps; nothing -- power downs/battery pulls; nothing -- factory resets; nothing -- everything else; nothing. There has to be somebody out there that develops for Android OS that can look at this and think it is worth looking into.
The one piece of evidence that seems to debunk my first theory is that the problem actually seems to target people. People who have gotten replacements still have the same problem occur, even if the replacement is an entirely different brand/model. This could suggest (and this is my theory number two) that the commonality is a specific app that when downloaded and installed, causes internal muting to become set, but not unset, permanently (remember, removing the app doesn't solve it and neither does factory reset).
With either theory, it seems to me that the problem is with the OS (it shouldn't be that easy to have a permanent effect on an OS caused by an app).
Anyway, there's my take on this issue. How frustrating. :/
I had this same problem for a while and I also dropped my phone about 2 months ago... the issue started about 2 weeks ago. I was VERY frustrated with Verizon and Motorola because they said my warrantee was voided with the chip on the phone from the drop. I noticed though that a system upgrade was sent to my phone 3 days ago and now my mic works again all of the sudden! Perhaps there is a "fix" finally being sent out and I hope the same happens to you!!! Hopefully I don't find it a reoccurring problem in a few more days either... GOOD LUCK!
I had the same problem the mic didn't work except on speakerphone
I used the louder volume hack 3.6, backed up my original files and loaded the V6r2 and the hs+ic3 and it was fixed.
