Poor Audio Quality when on calls, people say I sound far away and can't hear me at all

I have had my droid for a little over a week now, recently I have had people telling me that they can't hear me and it sounds like I have them on speaker when I don't, they say it sounds like I'm very far away. I have tried turning my phone off then back as well as taking the battery out to reset it. I'm just wondering if anyone has experienced this issue at all. Thanks.

I consistantly had the problem with phone calls on the Droid. I would be talking, feel a slight vibration, and the other person could not hear me. I could hear them. I was as careful as possible to not hit anything. It would show up as stars... even though I could not replicate this.

 

I returned the Droid for another Droid, had a question about my contract so I was waiting my turn talking to a friend when it happened again. At that point, I was frustrated with not only my contract changing on me (I bought the phone prior to them changing the early term fees, but when I had to return it because it was faulty, my early term fee went from $175 to $350.), but the phone itself. I returned it within 30 minutes of getting it... went back to my old phone and plan to get an iphone for Christmas.

Under call settings turn off voice privacy and hearing aid.

On several occasions I have been in the middle of a call when all of a sudden the caller can no longer hear me. I am getting frustrated becase I really love this phone a lot but there have been a few quirky things that have made me begin to question my choice.

I checked my settings and the privacy and hearing aid things were already off.

Must be in a bad signal area then.  I cant think of any other reason why someone cant hear you.

I'm having the same problem, just started a couple of days ago.  And I checked the privacy and hearing aid settings as well, but that didn't help either.  I called Verizon last night and the tech person I talked to believes it is a faulty microphone.  So they are sending a replacement unit.  STINKS that it's a "like new" one instead of a new one to replace my 2 month old phone!!
