    i did not search as i wasnt sure what to search for. here is the issue, when on the phone if i try to put the phone between my ear and shoulder the other user cant hear me. if i hold the phone to my ear its fine. if i hold it to my ear and lean crooked as if it was on my shoulder it is fine. it only screws up the microphone when physically on my shoulder. anyone else having a similar issue????

    lol, I think you need to design a special holder if you want to do that. Gotta hold the Droid in your hand, no way around it.

    I use the shoulder technique and I have accidently hit mute, or the end key, other than that it's fine, try pressing home then lock right when your in a call

    I recall reading somewhere that on the back of the phone near the headphone jack, there is a noise-canceling mic, and that it should not be covered by anything. In fact, my Seidio Innocase has an opening for that very spot. It's a very small notch.

    Solution: Don't put the Droid between your ear and should. Or maybe there is an app for that?

    Its the noise canceling software. If you block the mic on the back or don't speak clearly into the front mic you'll sound muffled.
