I have a similar issue with my Verizon Iphone 5. Most say it sounds like I am holding the phone 2 feet from me while I talk. Others complain it sounds like I am at the far end of a tunnel or tin can. I can hear them fine, and while on the call I'll flip over to speaker and it works flawlessly. The earbuds w/ mic work great too. I went to 3 Verizon stores and they were of ZERO help other than wanting to order me in a new phone on warranty, but why bother when so many people have tried replacing the phone and still had the same problem. Other threads describing this problem said that this is most often a problem when making a call when there is background noise so perhaps it is an issue with the "3 mics" technology on the iphone 5.

To all having problems with microphone,
Try troubleshooting using: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1630.
If all this fails to resolve the issue, you can give applecare a call (1-800-my-apple) or go into any applestore and ask about replacement options you have.

Is that intermitent? or no sound at all?
Part of the problem can be fixed: if the phone is against your ear
