I phone 4 s problem!
Got my wife a I phone 4S but no one can here her when she rings or someone rings her, not a bad problem to have I here you say 😉 but it’s now driving us mad. When I get home I will no doubt be playing with the phone to see if I can perform the miracle of fixing the issue!
Please can some smart techie tell me what the problem is.
Oh, the phone will record video and do the facetime thing, it’s when phoning in or out!
Thanks.Posted 4 years agoPickersSubscriber
Did you keep your phone number from a previous phone, but change the provider?Posted 4 years ago
I had a similar issue when I got my 4S a while ago – moved to O2 from T Mobile, to start with I had no incoming or outgoing calls, which improved to outgoing calls only after a week – basically they stuffed the changeover procedure. I called O2 and had a good whinge – they took a fortnight to sort it out but I got a couple of months free contract.
I think you need to call up EE and make sure they know there’s a problemsugdenrMember
That is classic symptoms of a defective audio chip, if you google re-balling iphone 4 you will find it. Basically the ?bottom mic works for facetime and recorder but when you tel it actually uses 2 microphones top and bottom, compares them in an audio processing chip and cancels out any duplicate sound to provide a noise cancellation of background noise. When the audio chip becomes dislodged – no-speaky any more.Posted 4 years ago
Plastic film? If you mean the screen protector that doesnt go near the mic.
I cant get more simple than “does it work on speaker phone” 😉
Im off out so here are the options.
For piece of mind go to settings, reset, erase all content and settings, then see A or B.

A: Yes, the mics dead, go to C.
B: No, something else is dead, go to C.
Seen two brand new iPhones with exactly the same symptoms even on speakerphone.
I spotted that the cut out for the mike opening on the protective screen cover as shipped from apple hadn’t been “cut out” properly thus blocking the mic and making the caller sound as if they were on mute unless they shouted.
Took us 20 mins to suss it the first time, 2 seconds for the next one.Posted 4 years ago
