    It's a beta. There are bound to be problems. It's not supposed to be a daily driver. Go back to iOS 4 if you're having problems.

    Really no need for this thread...

    Sorry to sound harsh, but what do you expect us to do about it? The beta is nowhere near bug free and is not meant to be used as your day-to-day software at the moment.

    So yeah, sorry for sounding harsh, but really man. =/

    I expect errors and glitches but I expect to be able to make calls.

    Surely if it's a glitch we should all have it?

    That's just the thing, some bugs might affect you but not others. I dunno man, the only advice I can give you is to reinstall iOS 5 and make sure you don't have some sort of setting checked that mutes your voice or something. Good luck, though.

    It clearly is your hardware from what I've read.

    Your mic is working when you use recording apps, but that's a different matter altogether from making and receiving telephone calls. Just because the mic can pick up sound to record in, lets say, Voice Memo, doesn't mean it will automatically work when a call is initiated.

    The problem seems to be when the call is made/received, and once that is in action, your mic cuts out. A trip to the Apple store awaits.

    You called Apple and told them that your one month old iPhone (which is not running the current supported software and is under warranty if it one month old) doesn't work for phone calls and they said tough ****?

    I have a hard time believing that.

    Downgrade to 4.3.3 and call them then. If you restored to iOS 4 there shouldn't be a problem. If they don't help over the phone go to the store. Just don't mention iOS 5 was installed.

    Well they aren't allowed to help you if your device is running beta software so I believe that part.

    Just restore to 4.3.3 and don't mention iOS 5 to them. No problems there.

    Smart move. Unless you're actually developing apps it's baffling why toadies are all over beta software. It's like buying a car where the brakes may or may not work.

    I'm not developing apps yet but plan to. Does that make me a "toadie"?

    I'm beta testing an app for my husband that HE wrote so I use iOS5. Does THAT make me a "toadie"?

    Get off your high horse dude!!!

    Wow that sucks. It's not dead but if the mic isn't working, mic based APIs won't do anything. First thing is you should never tell them you're using iOS5 before retail release. It's just not a good idea. Second thing you should know is that this is what developers call accepted risk. By installing foreign software, you accept the risks associated with the installation. It's like if I was going to install Ubuntu on a Windows Vista based machine. I shouldn't be expecting kexts or drivers for anything in that case. The third thing you should know is that a DFU restore to 4.3.3 may help restore the function to your iPhone 4. You should also make sure that you just do a clean install instead of a restore off of your old backup file which may have corrupted. If you're using Windows, your chance of data corruption is about 80% higher than a UNIX user.

    OP. Try this. Make a phone call and put it on speaker. If the other person can automagically hear you then almost certainly your mic is bad. Your phone has 2 mics. One on the bottom (commonly mistaken to be another speaker) and one on top (little hole next to the headphone jack) when you are on a call and speaker is off you are using the bottom mic and the top is noise cancellation. When speaker is on you are using the top.

    If the other party can hear you when you put it on speaker it is your bottom mic. In which case it is hardware and apple should replace regardless of what version OS you are running. I had this happen several months ago and I changed the whole dock connector assembly and all was well.

    You can develop apps virtually with XCode without installing iOS 5, also no reason you can't cut your teeth on iOS 4.3

    Take a q-tip and clean out the headphone jack. I have had this problem with my 3GS and cleaning out the headphone jack does the trick.

    First, my husband wanted iT tested in iOS 5.

    Second, it's really no ones business but his and mine.

    Third, you shouldn't be judging. Didn't your mother teach you the rule of "if you can't say something nice"?

    Seriously, go back to 4.3.3 and then go get it repaired as it does not seem to be a software issue. And if you're mad that things don't work on a beta software the. Get an other device and don't use it as your main device. No one promised that ios5 beta will be stable and you shouldn't be using it on a main device.
    Either way go back to 4.3.3 which is as easy as picking a nose :) and go get it fixed :))))
