In the middle of a call I could no longer be heard. I tried powering off and on, I was on the phone with T-mobile they say it is a problem with the phone,but could not be more specific. Is this fixable, or do I have to buy a new pone?

It should be perfectly flat. A new, good battery does not have the bulging rectangle in the middle you are talking about. Mine did the same thing. In fact, both sides were swelling. The battery would no longer sit flush in the back. My theory was simply that some sort of movement was causing it to lose contact and shutting off the phone.
If you take the battery out and lay it flat the table, you shouldn't be able to rock it by pressing an edge. If you can, your battery is dying.Rooted T-Mobile G2/HTC Vision with OTA
power off the phone. remove the battery put back battery. hold upside on joystick (round middle button) while holding power on phone. keep hold up side on joystick it will ask you to press 1 or y to format.
after this your phone will boot normally and os will get installed.
Have you tried a reset using the hardware buttons? To perform this, you need to turn off the phone first. While it is off, press and hold the home key and the power key at the same time. Keep holding the buttons until you see a screen with a triangle and an exclamation point in the middle. Once you see the triangle, let go of the buttons and open the keyboard. Press ALT+W at the same time, and the phone should reset.
If you are sure you can't be heard while NOT on speakerphone, it's probably a software problem, if you can be heard but can't hear while NOT on speakerphone, then it might be a bad Mic. If you really can't be heard while NOT on speakerphone and you are out of other options, perform a HARD RESET to restore the phone to factory (or current ROM) settings. Check to make sure the mute function isn't being initiated when you take the phone off speakerphone or start a call.
This is extreme, but my Dash phone is alive again. After pushing the power button HARD! for an hour, I broke the button, and pushed it inside the phone. I ripped the button out of the phone with a knife, and carved away the plastic so I could see the circuit board inside. (about a 1/4" x 1/4" hole). Looking in, there are 2 empty holes in the middle -the former mounting legs for the button. To the left are 2 leads (solder points), to the right there are 3 solder points. Using a screwdriver, I jumped (made a connection) with the 2 leads closest to the edge of the phone...ie: 1st solder joint to the left of the holes, and 1st solder joint to the right of the holes, and it powered up. I will cover the hole with black electrical tape. I build prototypes for architects for a living, so this is a successful solution.
plug in your charger to your phone, find something small to stick into the reseting hole, when your phone turns on, go into settings>power>advanced: un-click the "turn off device if not used for"
it may drain your battery faster, BUT it works!!! :D
