How do i fix my iPhone so the receiver can here me when i talk

1.Unplug anything plugged into the headset jack.
2.If you're on a call and holding your phone next to your ear, speak into the microphone and make sure you don't block it with your fingers or shoulder.
3.If you're using a screen protector or case that covers the microphone, remove it. Clear any debris from the microphones.
4.Restart your device.
5.Update to the latest version of iOS.

Test the microphone
To find out if there is an issue with the microphone itself-and not the app you're using or your cellular connection-test the microphone with the built-in Voice Memos app. Speak into the microphone and then play back the recording. You should be able to hear your voice clearly.

*If you can't hear your own voice the microphone is not working properly, you should replace the piece of hardware.

My iphone's microphone is not working sometimes.

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.
