    I have two iphone 3g that has been jailbroken and unlocked with yellowsn0w 0.9.5. Both works perfectly, accept that on one of them the microphone doesn't work.  When calling in/out, I can hear the other person, but he can't hear me.  I have tried to switch simcards, but it doesn't help.

    I don't have service with AT&T for the iphone, but I do for another phone. It looks like the network recognizes the SIM card I put in the iPhone is not the one that came with it, and i can make calls in and out, but without microphone. I think it might be a security feature. Anyone know this?

    The mic only works when the headphones are plugged in. It stops working immediately after removing the headphones from the jack. It's like it's working exactly the opposite of the way it's supposed to. I.e the mic is supposed to cut out when the headphones are inserted. The only way I can make a call and have the person hear me, is to listen through the headphones.

    I'm having the same problem. I notice that underneath the phone, there are two speakers. One of those speakers is not working. I'm assuming that its the microphone side which is not working, and hence there is no sound coming from that speaker. Are there any solutions to this problem? Can someone send me a quick note on how to remedy this problem? Thanks.

Try resetting your phone, if this does not work then it is probably not an internal problem.

Most often this is from simply debris getting clogged in the microphone... seeing as the microphone is a miniscule hole, a small piece of debris can cause major problems.

To fix this:
1. Find the microphone, (it is the tiny dot next to where you plug in your earphones)
2. Get a needle and poke around in it, tip it upside down, and any lodged debris should fall out.
3. Test it out.

Tell me if this works or not.

Have accidentally barred a number, how do I undo it?

On a mobile or land line?

If on a mobile, normally it is associated with the recipient in your contact list. May also depend on your type of phone android or ios (iphone)
check there contact details in your phone then there is normally further options in there profile, like add to favourites, or list and block / un-block caller.!

On a landline would be simuler in the phone history of callers - block / un-block caller / number.
Sometimes it is with the landline exchange sysytem, then call the operator.

hope this helps :•)

My iphone 5c makes crackling sound when calling and sometimes no sound when calling . Mic and earpiece are fine working . Tried resetting and all but not fixed . What may be the issue?

There's been water damage. Maybe from actual water coming in, contact with it or from you using it in damp places like the shower. What I would suggest is that you try to see if you had get the same result when you're using your headphones and microphone. If it works better with headphones than there's probably moisture on the receiver. If this is the case a bag of rice will always dry out your phone. Put it in a plastic bag with rice sealed shut maybe with two or three bags to make sure the rice is able to draw the moisture out of the phone.

Shazam on iphone suddenly says No Input -i am not using ipod touch

Try updating the app, otherwise press and hold it, tap the "x" to uninstall, and then reinstall it. Also check whether your microphone is working or not, and also try using the hands free kit, and ensure there has not been any problem with the jack. Try other apps like soundhound to see if they solve your problem.

You can't send a text message to multiple people on the iPhone, at least not using the stock messages.
If you're jailbroken, there are a couple apps you can use to send messages to multiple recipients.
1. RealSMS (paid) 2. iSms (free) 3. BiteSMS (free with adds, paid without).
Hope this helps!
