    Default Can't hear caller and they cant hear me

    I've had a Nexus 4 for a couple of weeks and have loved it until today when I received a call and I tried to connect to the person but I couldn't hear them and they couldn't hear me. I've tried over 10 outbound calls and a bunch of inbound calls and every time it's the same; no sound on either end. I've been checking various settings, muting and unmuting, etc. and can't figure out what's happening. It's as if my mic AND speakers aren't working but if I press a number on the keypad, the person on the other end can hear it.

    I'm running Google voice and have tried calling through GV and without it. Any thoughts?

    When in doubt...Factory restore.
    At least you will know then if it's a hardware or a software issue. If you still have issues after a fresh restore with nothing installed. Then send that puppy for warranty

    Thanks for the recommendation. What's the best way to preserve my apps, settings, etc for restore?

    Before you do a factory reset, have you tried plugging in a headset w/mic? Maybe your phone thinks you have one plugged in when you don't, or maybe you have a piece of lint stuck done in the headphone hole, screwing things up. Also, out of curiosity, have you tried making a call using the speaker phone?

    That group is gone, so is the "solution".

    This was fixed some time ago in Android 4.3... so if you are on Android 4.3 or 4.4 you should not be having this issue, if you are and are stock then a factory default is in order, if that doesn't fix it then you may be having hardware issues... If you are actually still on 4.2.2, then I would suggest upgrading, if you are on a custom ROM, I would ask in that ROMs support thread.
