    Welcome to the forum, pmichels! Are you original owner/is your phone rooted?

    I am the original owner and it is not rooted. I did the factory reset as suggested elsewhere on the forums and it did not help. I can place calls but there is no audio in either direction. Also, the charging light on the face of the phone remains 'on' and 'red' when charging and when not charging.....

    That sounds like a battery problem...perhaps not charging? Try a different USB cable, or maybe a different charger. You might also pull the battery for a few minutes and then try again.

    I don't think it is a battery issue as the phone charges fine and doesn't seem to be losing charge at a different rate. I pulled the battery anyway and still same issue: The phone places calls but no audio in either direction and the charge indicator light remains 'on' and 'red.' Also, seems too coincidental that the phone bugs out concurrent with a software update.

    I did initiate the factory data reset and it did not affect the lack of audio. It might be hardware with the speaker/mic combo, but again it seems strange that the mic and the speaker would go out simultaneously (unless they share a hardware commonality that is beyond me) concurrent with a software update. Never had this problem prior.

    I don't know how you feel about rooting but since this came right after you updated in your situation I would switch ROMs and I there are two ways that you could do that one is rooting and the other is passimg but certain people have been having trouble with the passimg method since the new hbout .35 so I would try rooting but the only problem is that rooting in gingerbread is a little harder and it involves unlocking the bootloader which will void your warranty.

    I would try the passimg approach first...

    I don't think the passimg problems are related to hboot. A lot of people assumed that from the "main version is older" error, but after pulling apart the shipping ROMs, it's apparent that the info.txt file is actually looking for a MainVer number that seems entirely unrelated to the hboot.

    My gut feeling is that it's probably more specific to carrier tweaked ROMs... But that's just a guess...

    Oh ok well thanks for the update danger and if so then ya that is probably a better solution than unlocking the bootloader.
