    I'm starting to think there could be something wrong with my phone. Many timed people just have a hard time hearing me on my 920. I'm making sure I'm holding it correctly and not covering the microphone. It's not all the time but if it happens it will stay that way for the duration of the call.

    Also, sometimes the voice recognition seems to not work too well also. Perhaps it is related?

    Has anyone else been having similar issues.

    Exactly, that's about how 1/4 to 1/2 of my calls go.

    Blow from time to time some air into the upper microphone (noise cancelling), and it will be ok.

    Check your volume, I have mine set to 8/10 and 25/30 and i'm using Jawbone Bluetooth. Same setting without Bluetooth.

    I went to the service center yesterday and the just blew compressed air I to the microphone. They seemed to think it was working but it still sounded distorted on the other end.

    I went back today and got my phone replaced. I called a few people and they all seemed much happier with the sound quality.

    I think my microphone was bad from the beginning. I always had a hard time with voice recognition. It just never worked for me. Now that seems much more accurate too.

    I hold the phone upside down with speaker on and I'm told that everything is always clear.

    Yep. Same here. People have no problem hearing me that way, lately because the way I hold my phone involves blocking the twin microphones.

    My issue was just defective hardware. I'm amazed at how well voice recognition works now. I always though it just sucked on this phone.

    The microphone wasn't passing through all the frequencies. It just seemed to have a narrow response range making everything sound muffled and muddy. It was worse than an analog cell phone from the 90s.
