XS Max mic not working in real calls but does with calling apps.
This is such a weird issue. I bought a refurbished XS Max and everything was seemingly fine. I was in a call with my girlfriend the night I got it and I had her on speaker. No issues outside of some white noise through my speaker. Nothing that would cause any concern though. I switched it off speaker and she couldn’t hear anything I was saying…just really bad static.
I called myself on another phone that had a calling app and everything was the same. I sound fine if I’m using speaker but it’s nothing but static with it off. Voice Memo works fine as well though.
Weirdest thing was when I installed a calling app on this phone. It works perfectly. There’s no static or anything. The mic actually picks up my voice.
It’s only when I call through my cellular network that it does this. It also does it with Wi-Fi Calling turned on. I’m not sure if it’s a network issue or a board issue with my phone. Data and everything else works perfectly fine. I’ve factory reset, reseated the SIM card and everything.
