What happens when you plug in a headset with a mic on it? Does it work then?

I would try it with a headset microphone first. But if that does not work it could be a problem with the software.

Double check that the mic is installed correctly first and then reset the phone through iTunes if nothingness wrong with that. The only problem is this will remove your jailbreak, and if you rely on an unlock this will remove it. Unless you have a carrier unlock.

I had problems with things when I was jailbroken, but they all went away after reinstalling the firmware.

Hope this helps :)
