So sorry that you’re having issue with the phone! Mic error is related to Web browser. I would suggest you to clear browser cache, browser history, and cookies under browser settings( Tap on Browser-More-Settings- browser cache, browser history, and cookies). Also, update data profile on your phone. Let me know.

Thanks, I was having this same problem. However, when I reset all of the browser info, that fixed my mic problem.

I had the same problem. I did 2 hard resets and it still gave me the error.  I figured out that you can not use skyvi and the google voice search at the same time.  It seems like an programming problem with the uodate.  I uninstalled skyvi and now it works with no errors at all.  Hope this helps!

Not necessarily a programming error. You simply have to disable Google Voice so that it won't take control of the Mic.

If you wish to use Skyvi instead of Google Voice, simply do the following to disable Google Voice,

  • Settings > Apps > All Tab
  • Search for and Select Voice Search
  • Press Disable in the upper right corner

Now you can use Skyvi or any other Voice search app.
