Problem with microphone on Galaxy S2Support

    I'm having a bit of a problem using my handset to make and receive calls. In short, people on the other end of the line can barely, if at all, hear me. I think that it is slightly improved when I use the speakerphone mode, but it is not much of an improvement and is only really possible to use in a mundane environment where I won't be disturbing others.

    I've had the problem for about a week now. I've tried using the service menu to boost the volume of the microphone but to no avail. I have the latest version of the firmware (2.3.5) on the handset.

    Any thoughts or suggestions before I take it back to Vodaphone?

    I had the same problem with my first handset. I called Orange, sent it back and they sent me a new one and it was far better. So you've probably got a faulty handset like mine was.

    Good luck!

    You should get your phone changed. I've read that S2's tend to have faulty mics. Luckily mine was good! :D

    Thanks for the suggestions. I'm going to perform a factory reset on the handset in case any software/apps have modified the settings. If there is no improvement I'll get it repaired.
