Ask Mac Questions and Get Answers from Experts ASAP
Hello and thank you for your question today. My name isXXXXX look forward to helping you today.
May I ask how I can help you today?
i have an iphone 4 and the speaker just stopped working. i can hear them, but they cant hear me
Thank you for the update.
Okay, so the speaker works, but the microphone does not?
i guess....very frustrating
Have you tried calling more than one person so you can verify that it is not a problem with the other person's phone?
How long has this been going on?
just a few days
May I ask if the phone is under any type of warranty?
i dont think so. my dad got the 5 and gave me his 4
i shut the phone off, waited 5 min and turned it back on and its the same
More often than not, this issue is caused by poor conductivity between the microphone board and the iPhone's mainboard.
whatr does that mean
The 'fix' would require you to open the iPhone case, apply pressure to the microphone board, and put it back together. I would not suggest that you try doing this unless you are familiar with how to do so.
When this occurs, the solution is to bring it into a cell phone repair shop and have them do it.
that would b a no
I figured so. I do not even feel comfortable tearing apart these over priced phones.
i work for an it support co. could i bring it to an engineer at work
You certainly can. I verify that one of the IT people has a history of doing such before handing the phone over, as it is super easy to destroy them.
we have a ton of mac engineers and we actually support all mobile devices
If I were you, I 'would' verify that one of the IT people has a history of doing such before handing the phone over, as it is super easy to destroy them.
Then they will be able to do that.
They will either re-secure the microphone board to the mainboard or they may place something in the phone before closing it to push the two boards together.
so will they know what you said............duh, probably
Yes, they will.
This is a far too common issue with the iPhones.
thats it? this just cost me 38 dollars for this?
I suppose. I do not have control over the cost or anything. I just saw your question and wanted to help.
wow....i want your job!!!! thanks for your help
