Default Nexus 4 Microphone broken

People can't hear me during calls, and google voice receive nothing (except for a pattern that's always the same whatever sound around the device)
I tried going back to stock firmware, didn't work either. Is there any way to fix the problem or is it time for a new phone?

Thanks.

First I would try sticking a dental pick into the microphone hole, sometimes dirt builds up and can muffle the mic. If it needs to be replaced it is part of the charging block, which is quite easy to replace. RMA if you still have warranty rather than voiding it though.

Install Z-Device Test from the playstore, it will tell you if the microphone itself is dead and you can test it as well.
Tablets:
Nook Tablet (CM11 Kit Kat nightly)
iPad 3

Phones:
Blackberry Z10 (OS 10.2.1)
Google Nexus 4 (AOSP Kit Kat)
Samsung Galaxy SII (CM11 Kit Kat) ~ Backup phone
