It seems this phone I just got yesterday is having issues where people aren't hearing me now (silence) when I call or they call me. At least 10 times in the past 24 hours. Sometimes it might work. So I restarted the phone and it is working again. Question is for how long. Anyone seen this before? Gosh looks like I am on another trip to the Apple store to get them to replace it again or I am going Android again. Ugh.

You are way to picky if you went through 5 iphones. I would take this back and accept whatever at this point. You have to realize that millions of these are made and there are no actual "perfect" iPhones.
Good luck getting a "perfect" android.
Oh and also if when you restart it, its likely a software issue.

Too picky? So it takes pickiness to have faulty phones that are not usable?

for the mic part:
This is easy. If you think there's a hardware issue, do some voice recording. That way you'll know if it is in fact just the mic or if it's perhaps something to do with your carrier.

As far as being picky:
Why are you on your 5th iPhone?

So you're mic wasn't working right. You rebooted the phone, the mic is working now. What's the big deal?

One would assume that by your fifth phone, Operator Error would be the most logical conclusion.

After restore on the other phones I would get no service.

Yea well you cant have operator error on an iPhone to cause no service after a factory restore. Says not a valid sim card.

I know. :/

Btw I also had the issue in my car hooked up to my Bluetooth hands free. No one could hear me there either. So it's not hardware but something else.

Are you jailbreaking it?

According to your previous posts you are, there's a good chance your problems lie with the jailbreak or some rogue app. That's probably why your exchange rate is so high.
