Fix problems with your microphone

iOS

If your microphone isn’t working, try these steps recommended by iOS:

  • Clear the microphones
  1. Remove any screen protectors, films, or cases from your iPhone.
  2. Also, clear any debris from the openings of your iPhone.
  • If people can’t hear you on the phone
  1. Open the Voice Memos app.
  2. Tap the Record button . Speak at the bottom of your phone, then stop the recording.
  3. When you play back the memo, you should hear your voice clearly.
  • If people can’t hear you when you’re using the speakerphone
  1. Open the Camera app.
  2. Record a video while speaking at the top of your iPhone.
  3. Tap the camera chooser  to switch to the other camera. Then record another video while speaking at the top of your iPhone.
  4. When you play back the videos, you should hear your voice clearly.
  • If the microphone doesn’t work in a specific app
  1. Go to Settings > Privacy > Microphone.
  2. Make sure that the app is enabled.
  3. If the app has permission to access your microphone, or if it isn’t listed, contact the app developer.
  • Contact Apple Support

If you still sound unclear during calls, recordings, or apps, contact Apple Support to discuss service options.

Android

If your microphone isn’t working, try these steps recommended by Android.

  • Check your microphone isn’t obstructed. Your microphone has openings on it, and if dirt particles accumulate, it can stop the microphone from working correctly. Check your hands or fingers aren’t covering it too when in use.
  • Check your cell phone network signal is strong. If your cell phone signal is weak, it can affect how well your microphone appears to be working.
  • Check the microphone is enabled. Follow the above instructions to ensure your microphone is enabled for the app with which you’re trying to use it.
  • Restart your phone. If you’ve tried everything else, try rebooting your phone. That usually fixes many common issues.
  • Repair your phone. If your phone’s microphone continues not to work, you may need to have it repaired or replaced.

  2. At the top right, click More Settings.
  3. Then, click Privacy and Security > Site settings > Microphone.
  4. Lastly, select the option you want as your default setting.
    • Review your blocked and allowed sites.
    • Remove an existing exception or permission:
      • To the right of the site, click Delete Delete .
    • Allow a site that you already blocked: 
      • Under “Not allowed,” select the site’s name and change the microphone permission to “Allow.”

You might need network administrator permission to set the microphone settings for you. In that case, you can’t change them here.

Fix problems with your microphone

If your microphone isn’t working, try these steps:

  • Make sure you aren’t muted

If you’re using a headset, make sure the mute switch on the cord is off. Also, make sure you aren’t muted on the website (like Google Meet or Skype).

  • Check your system settings

Make sure your microphone is the default recording device, and that recording levels are correct:

Windows

Mac

  • Contact your manufacturer

If you’re still having problems, contact your microphone’s manufacturer.

Things to consider before Bulk Texting

Bulk texting is an aNinja great tool that you use to nurture your leads and keep them updated with your latest campaigns, and offers, and send them reminders. Here are a few things to consider before bulk texting.

Things to consider before bulk texting

Here are some things you would want to consider before sending out your text blast.

  • Phone number

Before sending SMS in aNinja, you want to have a phone number saved in your aNinja account. Either you buy a new phone number from aNinja or you port your own.

  • Leads phone numbers

If possible, provide a mobile number in the lead’s primary contact in order for your text to be successfully delivered.

  • Text segmentation

When crafting your text template, you want to count the characters you’re adding to this text. A text is composed of 160 characters which is considered one segment. If your text exceeds 160 characters, it will be delivered to the recipients anyhow, but you will be overcharged for all the extra segments by your phone carrier.

  • Text limit per bulk/per user

According to your Billing plan (only for Advanced and Pro plans), each user can send 2000 SMS per bulk.

If you wish to increase your SMS limit, just reach support at support@aninja.com and they will bump it up for you, with a one-time charge of 15$ for every additional 1000 SMS per user.

Or, you might want to limit your bulk texts to 2000 SMS per bulk. To do so, you want to segment the contacts in the CSV file before you import it.
