Carrier problem, bad mic, dust and lint in the mic hole, bad motherboard ...

If you can't see lint in the mic hole (and clean it out carefully with a pointed wooden toothpick), the phone has to go in for repair. There's no way for us to guess which problem it has.

Is your phone from Verizon - and did you put a case on it? Many of the cases cover the microphone - the Verizon phones have the microphone in a different location than from all other carriers, and some cases will block the audio.

How do you hold your phone. I noticed that I held the speaker near my ear and that left the microphone further from my mouth. So instead I just place the microphone near my mouth and don't worry about the speaker. I tend to be able to hear people regardless.
