I would think it has more to do with the playback device. It's a mobile telephone, not a high end hifi.
You mixed on some kind of desktop sound system or just maybe a pair of professional near field active speakers and based your mixing decisions on what you heard there. Whatever, that system most likely has a far better balance through the frequency spectrum than the iPhone, or any other phone.
How are you listening to the sound from the iPhone -- the standard supplied headset, a really good set of headphones or the built in speaker system?
Kids these days listen to music on their phones via the built in speaker so they can show off about having the latest Dustin Beaver and the Chipmunks or whatever the holy heck it is they listen to. They seem to enjoy it.
Perhaps you should have monitored your mix on a phone? No idea how you go about that but all the big music labels seem to have it down. Maybe ask someone that works for those people.

nick i figured i out!!!!!!!!! LOL!!!! Ok the audio was captured just fine in final cut. now if you look at the audio wave form on the time line one was bigger then the other. so when i tried to make it into a mono channel i didnt think to go to modify and check the stero option. so i dropped one track down 1 by 1. ok cool, so now my audio is mixed and some how some way the pan got adjusted to fully modulate to one speaker. it sounded just ok on the computer, but wacked on the iphone.. so what i did was i deleted the smaller looking wave form track for the VO. took the larger track vo and copied it down and snapped it into place. on track 1 i did 0 across the board and on track 2 i did -0 across the board, works like a charm!!
Thank you for fast response!!!
