Default Esteem Microphone very muffled

Has anyone had a problem with their microphone being very very muffled. I tried to get it warrantied a few months ago but the metro store i went to keeps saying that they dont have any in stock. is there anything i can do to fix it or do i just need to call LG.

If metro can't help I'd see if LG can help. Sure you would be without a phone for a while but at least they could fix the phone. I would use a back up phone if you could till you get your phone back if possible.

Not a problem. Let us know what happens. LG has great customer service from my experience in the past.

if microphone sounds muffle i would suggest u checking out the microphone hole on the bottom of the phone it might be dirty i suggest u could clean it out with a sewing needle but dont stick it all the way in.

i think its the placement of the mic. very poor. i get alot of people too that cannot hear me i cup my hand under the bottom of the phone and then no problems. how do you expect a mic with the hole aimed at the ground, to pickup voice

OHHH, I had this problem my 2nd week and I automatically knew and thought to myself (I usually bring my phone with me in my bathroom so I take long showers) so I think if you took a hot shower with phone in the the bathroom the humidity entered the microphone, I fixed this by repeatedly blowing into the mic. to make sure this works correctly open voice recorder (pre-installed on phone) and test it out. Hope it works for you as it did for me!!!
