Hi. I'm new to this, in search of help. I use Skype a lot and FaceTime a bit. For about 1 year, everything worked fine, referring particularly to the microphone. I believe it was the first time I used Skype after updating the IOS to IOS 6; suddenly I could not be heard, but I could still hear on the speakers, as before. I re-installed Skype: no joy. FaceTime was the same. The Apple store (locally, at home in Canada) checked my iPad by plugging it into their Mac and doing somechecks, and said it appeared the hardware was fine, no apparent issues. They suggested re-installing the IOS, told me how to do it, which I did; still no joy. Anybody got any suggestions? It works fine with the Apple headset/mic, but that's a bit of a nuisance....... HELP, please!
