    I have a GS2 on which I cannot makes calls without being on speakerphone. Should I try to change the microphone? Has anybody here done this? How hard is it?

    Does speakerphone not use the same microphone that normal talk does?

    My gs3 was having the same issue, I took a needle and cleaned out the pinhole microphone and it solved the issue.

    Which version of Android are you using? An update may solve the issue.

    Sorry for gravedigging but I just had to cope with this issue.
    My phone broke and I had to pull my old Galaxy S2 out of a drawer which had this exact issue. Finally found a fix that involved turning off noise reduction.
    On a stock S2, you can access the setting by pressing the menu button while a phone call is active.
