[HELP] Sony Xperia S Mic Problems

Hello Everyone,

I'm having problems with my microphone on my xperia s... it was working fine one day and all of a sudden it wouldnt work... i say wont work but it does i just have to shout at the top of my voice to even be heard and even then apparently its quite..... strange thing is that it was working fine the other day... any ideas on how to fix it?? i dont think its the OS on the phone. I tried first reparing the phone which didnt work then upgrading to ICS but i am still having the same problems.....

Any ideas?

Re: [HELP] Sony Xperia S Mic Problems

if you feel it's not working properly you should take it to a Sony repair center to get it checked

Re: [HELP] Sony Xperia S Mic Problems

if that drop affected the mic yeah they won't cover it, you have to call them or do a live chat so they can tell you where it's the closes Sony Repair Center to you

Re: [HELP] Sony Xperia S Mic Problems

I can't say if they will repair it or not but it makes sense that they should
