I finally get the chance to try out facetime. And... the person at the other end said that she could hear me clearly, but I can't hear her. I max up the volume and off my volume limit, and i still can't hear her well. When skyping, she can't hear me. I tested the mic using the voice memo, I could clearly hear myself in the playback. What do you guys think, is this a defect? ~~Can mod delete this thread~~ it was my friend's ipod mic, it was covered.
