    I bought a battery from ifixit.com, and installed it using their directions. Everything went well, but now during a call people can't hear me. It does work when I have it on speakerphone. Don't know what could have happened?

    Im guessing you might have damaged the charger port/mic assembly when removing the battery? That part can be replaced pretty cheap if I remember correctly.

    I hate when I try to fix one thing and something else breaks:D

    Check out Gadget Menders if ifixit does not have the part. Pretty sure they carry it.

    Replacing the battery was pretty easy and I was careful about it. Didn't think I damaged anything, but to be sure, I then replaced the mic/dock/jack port assembly. Still no sound during calls or voice memos.

    YES! Very frustrating!
