You will have to try an open the phone to check to see if the microphone is missing or damaged since it is surface mount you might have to solder it. if you are not comfortable doing that I recommed sending it t a service center

Can you change sim card in motorola i860 to work with atnt

No, the i860 is a Nextel phone and uses iDEN as its technology.

Services like AT&T and T-Mobile use GSM, and only those types of SIM cards would work with each other.

While the i860 does take a SIM card, it is a very different SIM for different technology, and are completely not compatible. Sorry....

It seems your mic problem. Mobile phones microphones are are used to get such defect. Motorola mic is ractangle type SMD(surface mount device) and replacement needs some skill. If you don't have enough knowledge please don't try to do yourself. Give it to skilled technician, he will replace it with new one but will charge you little.
