I can suddenly no longer be heard on calls using my iPhone 4S.

People can hear me using the speakerphone or attached headphones, but not through the normal mic. But Siri can still hear me, which I assume uses the same mic as making regular calls. I think the speakerphone mic is a separate mic at the top of the phone.
Complicating factors. Yesterday I upgraded to the latest iOS version, but I also had the dock connector replaced at a shop because it wasn't charging properly. So this could be a software bug or I'm wondering if maybe the repair shop could have damaged the mic during the repair? The latter seems unlikely to me if Siri uses the main mic too.
Any ideas? Is this a known bug? It's out of Applecare coverage. I've tried hard rebooting but to no avail.
