Help! Microphone Very Quiet During Calls!

more recently this has started, however as on who mainly texts this could have started a while back.

basically when calling someone, with the phone the you ear, the person on the other line can barely or not even hear you. How ever when you put it on speaker and talk straight into the mic it is still very quiet but hearable.]

i have pulled the battery and rebooted, and it didnt work, so i will try a secrurity wipe.

could this be that there is dirt in the mic, and if so how can that be cleaned out?

thanks

Re: Help! Microphone Very Quiet During Calls!

Are you're there volume keys are turned up? Sorry just need to ask these accounts may sound weird but sometimes we make mistakes, Have you tried to call other phone in your house hold and left message to check for yourself?

Have you recently do OS update? What is the current OS you've?


If the problems still occurs I suggest bring it into Bell store, have them take a closer look or they can ship the Z10 to BlackBerry have them replace it!

Re: Help! Microphone Very Quiet During Calls!

i am happy to report that it seems to be working one hell of a lot better now, it is loud and clear.

 

 

only one question, when talking to someone on the phone why do i sometimes hear a echo of myself?
