    The mic that you use for phone calls has crapped out on my iPhone 4S. I took it to a repair place and without even looking at it he said that the dock connector needs to be replaced. Instead of spending $50 to get it replaced, I went ahead and used my upgrade with AT&T and got the 5S. I'm planning on replacing the dock connector myself and use it as a backup phone if I were to ever need it. Since the phone is no longer activated, I can't call anybody with it and can't think of any other way to test the mic to see if it's fixed. All the voice commands, siri, etc., use the mic that is by the headphone port if I'm not mistaking. Can anybody think how I can test to see if the mic works once I replace the dock connector, and is replacing the dock connector a common fix to my problem? Thanks

    Try running a Voip app and call your self, and I do believe the microphone, speaker, and dock connector are all one piece.
