It happened again yesterday, and in a near-emergency situation and I didn't exactly have time to sit and wait for the phone to restart. I had the friend I needed help from thinking I was doing some kind of prank call. Fortunately I had another phone in my car so disaster averted, and even more fortunately she answered the unknown number which she'd usually ignore.
When I got home I was able to do the interactive tests and it completely failed the microphone test - even tapping the mic directly produced no audible results. A luna restart doesn't fix it - only a complete reboot, which, as you all know takes ages.
I need to find a way of fixing this, because the phone just isn't reliable as a phone like this and carrying around backup devices ruins the point. I'm no expert, but maybe it's some kind of driver issue? As mentioned above, when it happened before, creating a new profile fixed it, but what's happening to make it return again?
Failing being able to fix the mic problem directly, is there any way I can schedule a full phone restart while I'm asleep so there's a chance the mic might be working when I need it? I already schedule a luna restart with modeswitcher, but that does nothing more than clear out the RAM really.
