    I am having issues with microphone of Micromax A116. If I use the phone
    dialer, my voice cannot be heard at the other End. But the voice
    recorder is working fine,i.e. I am able to record my voice and play it.
    Do you have any idea what could be the issue. I am not sure how many
    microphones does A116 have. Is it a possibility that there are two
    microphones, one for phone voice input and other for normal voice
    recording?. I think I have got a defective piece
    . I will recommend other not to buy this phone as of now and wait for
    things to settle. This phone is not stable. I have had issues with the
    accelerometer as well. I have done atleast 5 factory resets but the
    microphone seems to be not working. I will take it to service centre
    after I get a confirmation that it is indeed the issue with hardware.
