I'd love to hear if anyone else has encountered this issue: When I dial or receive a call, on the iPhone 4, the call connects as you'd expect, the call timer starts counting, but I can't hear or say anything.

Person on the other end has dead air too.

In some cases, if I stay on the line for 30+ seconds, I can finally hear the other caller and they can hear me.

I've logged a call with VFNZ, but they say it's unheard of (no pun intended).

Multiple locations throughout Auckland. A complete reset of the phone (including a software restore with no backup restore) didn't change the behaviour, but it went away for a bit then started happening again this morning.

Interestingly I have observed similary a couple of times talking to a mate of mine - we're both on Vodafones, my end is an iPhone 3G but his is a 'droid - not sure which version.

Had it just this morning, he was driving and I wrote it off as related to this, but it's a bit like you say, except it occurs intermittantly for a few seconds at a time during a phonecall. All voice, and background noise all dissapeared (both ways, apparently) for a few seconds, then returned.

Unsure if it's directly related but it's more info for the pot anyway.

Yes, I get this as well on occasion, just yesterday in fact. Manukau supa center. Partner and I were trying to find each other in a store and were talking, line went silent, then came back after about 5 seconds.

I've gotten this as well before, mostly in Manukau & area.

Thanks Ben. Again dissapointing that it takes a public (third party) appeal to get attention to a problem like this. :(

This is only when calling 777 / 888 I am looking into the issue now have been for a while

If I read the OP this is not related to what we are looking into now

Interesting, because Ben's report is from either calling in or out... So it wouldn't be only when calling 777 or 888?

Sorry, what I meant is that if Ben's report is for incoming and outgoing calls, how come you only identified the problem as being on calls to 777 and 888?
