…just know this…
I have been struggling with a new cell phone for the past couple days. Everything is great EXCEPT when I make/receive calls I cannot hear the person on the other end very well. Like the in-call volume is set really low or something. Everyone can hear my just fine, however.
So I tried searching this problem online to no avail. I was wracking my brain and going through all of the settings and finding nothing. The ringer volume was all the way up and there was no setting for in call volume.
Just when I was starting to feel sad that I may have bought a phone that skimped on quality hardware… I looked at it… and my screen protector in covering my front speaker – muffling it. I peeled the screen protector down, made a “test call” to my mom and all was fine. *Sigh*
So! if you ever feel dumb…at least you’re not muffling-your-own-speaker-and-wondering-why-you-can’t-hear-anything dumb

I’ve done silly things like that before too, haha. Glad you figured it out on your own before you went back to the store to complain!

@ValerieBee03: Ohh, don’t feel too bad. We’ve all done something like that at some point.

I was outside and had noticed a dark shape on the ground, I thought what the hell is that? I thought it was a burn or something. I brought it up to my mom and she kindly informed me it was a SHADOW! WTF?? Idiot!

Awww, don’t feel bad! I once was in the grocery store and it was my turn at the cashier. I was waiting for an important call so when someone called on an unrecognized number, I really needed to answer it. I did, put the phone up to my ear and said hello a couple times, but couldn’t hear anything even though the call was connected, so I hung up after about 15 seconds of saying hello and listening. This happened 3 more times, each time the same thing, plus with everyone behind me staring at me now and the cashier watching too. The fourth time it rang, I whipped it out of my pocket again, frustrated, only to realize… I had my hands free headset plugged in so the sound was being rerouted to my headphones. Mortifying. Especially with a crowd watching who probably figured it out before I did.

When I first got my new phone (first smart phone) I kept using it upside down, and not being able to hear people. They’re too damn symetrical!

Haha my aunt did this as well. For like 2 months she complained to me and then finally I went over and saw her in person and said “ummm… try this” haha.

@veggie_rachel: Me too! Oy that would have been embarassing!
@jadlnc: Sometimes I feel like I do this more often than the average bear 😉
@Artificial-Sweetener: Haha I’ve had shadows trick me too! I’ve thought they were water, dirt, stains… you name it!
@FatherTed: LMAO I can just picture this! Haha awe
@MabelleBliss: I can totally understand how that would happen. My SO is the gadget person in the relationship, definitely not me!
@Pinkmoon: Haha! I was so frustrated I felt so silly afterwards for getting so worked up about it
