Great guide :-) I have a Nokia 2630 too and people can no longer hear me on calls, even though I can hear them. Do you know what could be wrong? Do you think this is something I could fix myself? Thanks!

You could try getting a neodymium magnet and run it across the earpiece grill. In my father's case, a lot of metal powder was in there, pressing in the speaker membrane; the alternative is cleaning it (which does require opening the phone using Eric's very nice guide). The alternative to those is ordering an earpiece online - but usually those are really bad quality, so trying to fix the original one would be advisable
