I can't hear anyone I call / calls me unless I use speaker phone! Can't even hear the ringing before they pick up, any ideas ?


iPhone 5

    This just started happening to me today too. I can play music just fine, people can hear me loud and clear on their end but, they sound like they are a thousand miles away and at the bottom of a well on my end. I guess I'll take the phone in. This AND the fast draining battery. I've tried a few things to fix it or to trouble shoot somewhat but, really I'm not in the mood to fiddle around for hours with this phone anymore. I want a new phone this one has been nothing but, problems from the get go.

    Looks like Apple is replacing my iphone 5. After calling them and after having had issues with this phone from day one I am pleased to be trying out another phone. I must say that I did get good help with this phone since October when I first got it but, it's infortunate there are so many issues with these phones. My macbook pro has had issues out of the box too and has been in for service with a new logic board installed already after only a year and a half. I do think the logic board was faulty all along and finally needed replacing. I don't know what's going on with Apple lately but, looks like there are issues all round. Hopefully the reliable part of Apple devices will return soon.

    I've had my phone for a year and 5 days now and i noticed that just a couple of days either right before, on, or right after oct 8th, all of a sudden i couldn't hear the ringing when i call out nor do i hear the other people on the other line but they can hear me. this is really frustrating!!!! I don't recall doing anything that would damage it. i'm quite upset. does anyone have a fix solution to this other than paying for a new phone?
