    My gf has tried to call me a few times and the phone rings normally and everything, but when I answer, I can't hear anything at all, and the call ends after about ten seconds.

    Anyone else had this problem?

    So what's the problem, seems to be working perfectly. Sorry just had to say that. Have you done a battery pull? I've done that on several occassions and it always seems to clear up minoe issues.

    Pulling the battery seems to fix it, must have just been a temporary thing.

    Hmmm, had the same problem still do. Some times no nothing, other times I get my own voice sent back through my speaker. Beginning to wonder if this is a DX problem, originally was blaming Verizon.

    Are you using the originial radio firmware? I am on the leaked path so didn't get the radio, bootloader update the OTA came with.

    I'm not sure, but right after I got the phone I got the 2.2 update OTA and did it that way.

    I had the same problem when my wife called. I did not get disconnected after 10 seconds tho, I hung up after about 30. Called her back about 2 more times, still heard nothing, then rebooted my X and everything was fine after that.

    A couple days later I had the same problem, but it was just one call, again with my wife and I hung up and the next call worked fine.

    I had a similar problem this evening. I was attempting to make an outbound call and there was no sound whatsoever. So I called my home number to test it out. The phone rang, but no sound on the X. My wife answered and no voice transmission at all. Pulled the battery and it works again (though I stupidly forgot to try a simple reboot first).

    This happened to me today. I have had the phone for a few weeks and it is the first time it occurred. I powered off and on the phone and it was fine after that.

    I hadn't had the phone for 12 hours when I did the update, so I can't say for sure if it started after the update.

    Yup, system reset 2 weeks ago (had to do option 1 to activate), then did option 2 later.

    Had this happen to me one time. Tried calling my friend a couple times, and nothing from the earpiece or when on speaker. Then he tried calling me, and same thing. So I rebooted, and its been fine since. The day that happened was the first and only time I had used the alarm clock function on the phone, coincidence or not? Anyone else have this problem after using the alarm clock function?

    I had the same thing happen to me a couple of weeks ago. I had downloaded evernote earlier that day. i uninstalled it and rebooted and haven't had an issue since. I think it may have had something to do with the Evernote app.

    Edit: I should say that i'm on OTA 2.2, non-rooted, non-deodexed Droid X

    I had this problem start when my phone crashed using evernote. If you have this problem, restart your phone until it works. I pulled my battery out and it didn't work and then just turned off and on and it did...

    This has happened to me a few times as well - almost always after playing music, either with 3 (Cubed music player) or Pandora. Have to restart the phone or else no once can hear me on a call - I hear them, and hear other phone alerts, but they can't hear me.

    I've had this happen to me twice recently as well. I couldn't hear any audio from earpiece or speaker. I'm pretty sure that the callers heard me though.

    Rebooted and was fine right after.

    Clearly some sort of a problem here.

    The after audio thing that laughingmom just posted is interesting. I've been trying to keep an eye out and see if there's something I'm doing just before that's causing this. I suspect there's a trigger of some sort.

    Happened again to me today. I was trying to call my voicemail after having a missed call, pressed speaker and had no sound. Tried it again and no sound until I rebooted, then worked fine. I wasn't listening to any audio or watching a video. I did switch the phone to vibrate and back prior to this happening tho.

    This drives me crazy and is what brought me to the columns here. I have lost many calls and always have to pull across the unmute button and then check the menu and unmute that too. Royal pain. And now that my voicemail is "upgraded" there doesn't seem to be a possible speakerphone anymore - the only way I can hear messages!

    I installed the Rubix Blurry rom yesterday (with the updated 2.2.1 android system files) and haven't had the problem yet. Will see tho. O/W I usually have this about once a week.

    I got was one of the few to get the OTA to 340 and had 2 silent calls (same person) last night until I rebooted, then could hear people on the other end again. I guess this is still an issue with 340.
