Default Mic on phone stopped working

Hey guys I noticed the other day that I can't use the mic on my phone. In a phone call no one can hear me and Google now doesn't register me speaking to it. However when I'm in a phone call if I put the phone on speaker phone it works ... I did a complete wipe and reflashed my ROM this didn't change anything .. Any suggestions?

I did! I had to update them when I flashed UnSense ROM. I'll flash them again when I get off work

I had this happen to mine last weekend. The person on the other end could only hear static with an occasional partial word, but it worked fine on the speaker. I searched google and found a funny sounding solution that fixed my issue, and it has been working fine since. I called my wife's phone and put her's on speaker so I could hear the static. I then blew gently into the mic hole on my phone, when the static stopped the mic was working properly again.

I'm assuming it had a piece of lint or dirt in the mic hole. Hope this helps you out as well.
