    With Siri on sometimes (actually like all the time) my microphone shuts off, and the only working microphone is the noise cancelling one.
    I try Voice memo and all i get is static noise, but I turn off Siri and my Voice Memo works.
    And the biggest problem is that I cant make calls. (Hello? Hello? *other person hears silence* END CALL )

    And one more issue...
    10 seconds after I activate Siri, the lock sound and typing click sounds are increased dramatically.
    Try Siri on your home page, then close Siri, swipe left to search and spam the keyboard, sounds like firecrackers.... or just lock and relock your phone

    Return? / Bug? (Wait for fix?)
    Anyone else get this?

    Happens to me about 1/4 times I use it. I assume it is a software glitch.

    This does it to me too.

    microphone doesnt work in some calls,

    If i use siri then text or lock the phone the volume is increased past the max volume.

    My mate just got his 4s today, we tested side by side, same settings, his didnt do it, mine did. will test with a factory restore on mine now and see if it still occurs

    It's a known issue already and there's been plenty of discussion on it here at MacRumors.

    Hopefully Apple will release an update soon fixing this.

    issue occurs after factory restore.

    Weird, seems more like a hardware issue if its only affecting some phones and factory resets do not fix it
