Default Problem with calls: They can't hear me - I can't hear them.

I've had my S3 for about three months without any real problems, but now I'm experiencing trouble with calls, and it's really frustrating.

This usually happens about 4/10 calls:

When I call someone I get no dial-tone, no nothing. There is no sound indicating that I'm actually making a call. When whoever I'm calling answers they cant hear me and I cant hear them. If I hang up and try calling back it's usually fine. This problem only occurs when I call someone. I've never experienced it the other way around.

What on earth can this be? The microphone and speaker obviously isn't at fault, because it usually works fine. Anyone?

Have you had the same sim in another phone to rule out a carrier/sim problem?

Having issues as well...according to the sprint store they're upgrading to 4g in my area and this is just the way it's going to be for a few months. (Cool.)
Explains as to why my moms dinky phone is having issues as well.
Don't know if you already have upgraded towers where you're at or whatever, just sayin

Make a phone call, press the menu button, and turn off "noise reduction." the noise reduction on the s3 either cuts off your voice or diminish it completely.
