I have the HTC One (M7 developer edition) phone, and I love it! The elegant hardware design and the Sense UI are amazing.

A few days ago HTC released a patch under the name “HTC Service Pack” and unfortunately it appears they did not do enough testing. There are thousands of people who have been plagued with the same issue I had – just read the app reviews. When making a call, I was unable to hear the other side, and they too were unable to hear me.

After digging into the code from the update I discovered a resolution. Here’s what you need to do – at least that’s what worked for me and a couple friends of mine who have the M7.  I would presume this will fix the issue with the M8 as well.

  1. Go to settings then apps, all apps
  2. Find “Google Services Framework”
  3. Force stop the app and clear the data. Do this 3 times.
  4. Restart the phone.

Did that work for you?
