    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.

    Yeah Im Glad i finally found out why it sucked SO BAD. I got this phone, for its Camera, and Video.
    So i can record interviews, jams, shows, ETC.

    This phone mic is AWFUL. disgustingly low quality.
    Really ticked me off after getting the phone, realizing, great, now i need to go out and buy another Digital Camcorder.

    Even the video Quality is grainy in decent lighting.

    Please come up with something. Or i'll find some Root, to take care of the problem.

    I was thinking about getting a car headset mic, splicing the cable and putting a preamp with a clip limiter to tell me if I'm clipping.

    THESE ARE IMPORTANT!

    We need a High Quailty Codec for audio and video, with a peak meter, and adjustable mic pre. Peak meter is important. Maybe a limiter.

    Im tired of seeing people upload concerts to youtube, and them sound like distortion.

    IM glad i didnt buy that cable, i would have wasted my time, if its only recording at 8KHZ!!

    i **** more frequency than that.

    And while were at it, why does the IPOD have two cameras for video chat and taking pictures, While, the droid, which is hundreds of dollars more, has one. and no video chat capability?!

    THANKS htc.

    And you know what? I could deal with that, if it wasnt so glitchy! Its a brand new phone, and all it does is glitch.

    And an Image stabilizer for the camera.

    Why would you release a Droid phone without any of that?

    It seems so basic to me, that it would be included.

    If your looking at buying this phone, wait till they fix these problems.
