    My Wildfire has no incoming sound. People can hear me but I can't hear them. Earphones and loud speaker phone work. Tried audio manager but the volume is turned up to max. I did a factory reset of the phone. No difference. Any ideas?

    Incoming sound? I'm assuming you mean when you receive a text or call right?
    The only factors i can say that might have caused this is maybe you dropped it on the ground or in water, also im guessing your not rooted??
    Stuff like this is usually a hardware problem rather than software
    Meaning most of the time you just have to grin and bear it :(
    Like me, i can hear the person on the phone properly but when i speak they say im soo far away so i always have to use headphones to speak properly

    I have had problem with the audio levels with my phone, even on speaker. I checked the the volume levels but no luck. However, when searching fo an answer to my problem, I read some other blogs where cleaning the surfaces with a soft cloth was suggested.
    This didn't really help as my issue seemed to be with the earpiece(number 9 on the phone diagram in the user guide) and/or the microphone (number 4), so I tried cleaning them with a small artist's paint brush(a reasonably firm one) and SUCCESS!
    I can now hear conversations and be heard clearly and at a good volume.
    For good measure I also cleaned the speaker on the back of the phone and that too is working better now.
    I hope this is of help.
