    It wasn't long after I got my iPhone 5c that people I talk to started complaining that they couldn't hear me during phone calls. "I can't hear you at all", "You sound super muffled", "I can barely hear you and can't understand anything", "It sounds like you're under water", etc.

    So, is it widespread, or will a replacement maybe fix it?

    That's not a normal or widespread issue. I'd make an appointment at your local apple store to inquire about a replacement.

    When I got my iphone 5 last year, I had the EXACT same issue you're describing. People I called would tell me the same thing "you sound really muffled/under water...I can't hear u". I took mine to the Apple store and they replaced it, no questions asked. I recommend you do the same.

    I had the exact same issue with my mic. It worked fine with the recorder feature but no one could understand me on phone calls. I made an appointment with the Genius Bar people at the Apple Store this morning and they replaced my phone with a new 5s. Yeah, it was a white box replacement, but there's no way any refurbs could have shipped this quickly!
