Just to add to this, previous posts show the problems I was having before an exchange, I use my phone naked and also with a case but there a hole for the noise cancellation tiny holes, so I do not believe this is the issue I was having, new phone is fine. That's not to say there also other sound related issues that this may be relevant to.

Ok, I see that the phone drop LTE when you make a phone call and goes to the "4G" hspa+ network. So its definitely not an LTE issue. I made 3 call to my landline and two of them got dropped in less than 2 minutes and i noticed the bars dropped to zero as well, then I called AT&T and told them, the lady did some "network things." I havent tested any further.

I am having these issues and it is driving me mad.
If i have my phone on my shoulter (not holding with thanks) people can never hear me.. which is a nightmare cause i may be typing something they are saying and cant talk back.. same thing with people not hearing me.. i can always hear people fine...
This is my 2nd 920 since i left my 1st one in a taxi :'(

....after I installed Portico update 10 days ago people were telling me that they can hear me better than before the update. Then, I hard-reset it (to change my microsoft id) and they continued to hear me better, but in the last couple of days it is the same nightmare again - everyone keeps telling me that they can't understand my "rumbling". The only difference might be that I installed more apps although i don't believe that be the problem. .....
it might be relevant, it might not - i have a red one

....just did a little testing - when on speakerphone it works great regardless how far the phone is from me - 2 inches or 2 feet or 2 meters. However, in a regular phone mode if i move the phone 5 inches from mouth the other side can not hear anything. One thing that is different between speakerphone and regular-phone is role of distance sensor in the upper front right corner - when in speakerphone mode sensor is irrelevant, but if you move the phone few inches from the face, the sensor makes the screen turn on.

...the question is - is this a hardware or OS problem, and should i replace the phone, or wait for a soft update fix?!? Portico said in its official note that it fixed "audio issues".
It looks to me that if the mic works in speakerphone mode and so-so in the regular mode, this is an OS issue, but if this is an OS issue, why not everyone is having/reporting this problem (or maybe not everyone is aware of it since they are keeping the phone close to mouth most of the time and thus not experiencing the problem all the time, and thus not realizing that something is really wrong with the phone and not with a connection or else...)

HI all, if you see my previous posts on this thread you will see I had these problems with people never being able to hear me, was a real pain. In the end I exchanged my phone. I have had the new phone for over a week now and not a single issue with calls. I can hold the phone normally without thought and everyone hears me crystal clear. I would suggest to anyone having this issue to exchange your phone, it's faulty!

I have the same issue and it may drive me from the 920 all together. I got my 920 on ebay because i only wanted yellow. I cannot exchange, i could sell and buy another, but afaik all of the yellow 920s are from around the same date, which means most/all of them have the issue. No yellow = no 920 for me. Ill give it another week or so and see if i can get used to it, but i typically only put the earpiece on my head, and angle the phone a little away from me while talking(helps keep the phone a bit cleaner). Im trying to get used to the issue, but IMO a phone shouldnt make me change the way i hold it to work.
I absolutely love my phone at this point, and am really digging wp8, but a phone has to work as a phone before a fun gadget, and its not getting that part done correctly at this time.

The issue seems to be getting worse for me, and its not only when i answer now, I may call nokia tomorrow and see what they can do. I really like my phone, and dont want to go back to android, but if i cant get it to work as a phone at all, i cannot keep it. Almost everyone i talk to, at least at 1 point during the call, tells me i sound like im really far away. Half the time people think i dropped my phone and am still talking to them, or i put it down but forgot to turn speaker on.

The problem is horrible. It gets annoying hearing eceryone say, "huh?!" on the other line. I don't want to return the device because of the risk of getting another creaky Lumia.
I'm wondering if it is the official cases covering up the mic a bit too much.

I had my phone exchanged a few weeks back because nobody could ever hear me, my new phone was fine but over the last week I am having people telling me they cannot hear me again. Can anyone confirm where the microphone is on the phone, coincidentally the problem seems to have started since putting on my official Nokia phone case CC1043.

I dont use a case, but i made a video of it. . call dropped at 8:12.
At&t is finally changing my phone after calling them 5 times. and making me change the SIM!
I think its a defective unit or it connects to a tower really far away. I get 5 bars in the same location all the time on all the other phones i have.
I wonder if there is any correlation between the charging plate and this issue?
