iPhone 4S SEVERE ISSUES w/ hearing and making incoming outgoing calls

MY problems are:

 

Placing an outgoing call and immediately after pressing the call button, putting it to my ear. This will cause both parties to not hear each other. Happens 40% of the time.

 

I get a metallic distorted sound and can hear my voice echo while trying to place a call. 100% call failure. Happens 40% of the time.

 

I can hear the person I am calling but they can not hear me. Happens 20% of the time. I then toggling from speaker to iphone so they can hear me. This works about 75% of the time.

 

 

Using the car Bluetooth system  to dial through phone will fail 50% of the time in 2 ways:

 

      - metallic distorted sound (no phone ringing)

      - no outgoing sound (no phone ringing)

 

VERY ANNOYING!

 

ATT said that it was a bad SIM card, but the new one does the same thing - Also have done a compleat restore and still have the problems...

This sounds like a phone hardware issue which AT&T can't help you with. I would make an appointment with your nearest Apple Genius bar. They will either fix or replace your phone.

My wife's phone had the same issue.  See Apple and they will replace your phone.  Make an appointment at www.apple.com/retail

+1 Genius Bar.

I'm sure you can get a replacement fairly soon. Sounds like a definite hardware issue.
