    Just today, out of the blue, I went to send a text message and was using the voice to text and spoke my message but the phone said no voice heard. I tried this multiple times with the same result. I then tried to call somebody and they said they could not hear me, and I could not hear them. I then put the phone on speaker and both they could hear me and I could hear them...

    any ideas? and yes i tried a battery pull

    Have you check (the obvious) volume levels?

    Do you have any apps installed that control volume levels? (Timeriffic, etc.)

    Geeze, I had this happen to me and I did a factory data reset to fix it. But I found out later that wasn't really necessary but I can't remember what the easier fix was.

    Let me investigate.

    Found it!

    If you no longer have the microphone, go to settings>language & keyboard>android keyboard and make sure that voice input is checked.

    That's if the microphone is gone.

    If that's not your situation then try a reset first. If that doesn't work try a 30 second battery pull. If that doesn't work then do a factory data reset in your privacy section.

    Hmmmm....

    Hookbill beat me to the post about the voice-input setting.

    If that doesn't help, then I'm not sure what to tell you... :confused:

    What happens when you use the speakerphone?

    What happens when you use a bluetooth headset?

    ....oh yeah,

    Also, have you tried to do anything else with the phone that would use the mic?

    (If not, why not try some of these things to see if the mic is actually working, or if the phone app is somehow messed up?)

    What happens when you record a video with the camera app? Any sound getting recorded with the video?

    What happens when you try a voice search? Does the phone respond to your voice?

    settings/privacy/factory data reset.

    You will lose your apps and data but once you sign in again you will have all your contacts restored and you'll find your apps waiting for you in your downloads at the Market.
