when i am holding the Droid properly to my ear and mouth I am being heard fine. if i move the Droid away from the side of my face about 3 inches.... or "god forbid" maybe leave the ear part next to my ear and move the mic part away so that the phone is now at a 45 degree angle from my face, the person on the other end says that they can barely hear me. the speakerphone/mic works fine. the mic also works great when I am using headphones that do not have their own mic. this problem is just when i am using the phone as described above. so is this a defect or is this how all your Droids are. I ask because this has never been a problem w/ other phones i've had and is not a problem on the Palm Pre that I also had recently.
