Have you tested the microphones via the dial pad?
Have you checked the microphones via the test options which you can access by:
Opening the phone dial pad
Entering *#*#66#*#* to show testing menu with three sub-menus
Selecting Service tests > Test Single > Microphone. This test is for two microphones. First, say something to test the primary microphone (Mic1), the test will playback what you just said. After Mic1 test is completed, you can tap ‘Change to Test Mic2’ to test the secondary microphone (Mic2) with the same procedure.
If you cann…
sorry, i have to install android 9 right?

It isn’t clear if you have A9 or A10 but the test for the microphone is in both. It’s a standard option to test Android functional pieces
There had been a longstanding audio problem with the Fairphone 3 from the beginning. I don’t recall every tiny detail, but it might have only been really solved with one of the recent Android 10 releases.
I’m in Android 9
*#*#4636#*#* i can’t find any info about my sound

To access the tests use 66 instead of 4636 as in post 3 above
One of the major sound issues, indicated by
@urs_lesse, has been resolved
Im very happy, that the march Update solved the issue for me finaly!
(at least so far… )
Service tests -> Test Single -> Speaker -> just text in center no sound at all

You should hear a song in Chinese ~ Make sure you have the media volume on and up :: Settings > Sound > Media volume. The call volume doesn’t effect the test song playback.
The speaker module may be loose, you could check that. When did you buy the FP3?
If their is a fairphoneangel near you you could swap speaker modules maybe.
Otherwise be sure to put in an official support request, FP may send you a new speaker if you want to try that, but an official request for support is essential to use the warranty
One thing you will be asked by support is to do a factory reset so you should do that maybe before you ask officially.
Fairphone Angels* are active volunteers in your area that offer their expertise to assist you.
Most Angels cannot offer all of the following services. Simply contact your local Angels to find out more!
And as volunteers they’re not always available. So don’t be mad if they don’t answer in time.
Assistance may be given for:

Yes I’ve got that FP3+, when did you get it, I’ve also updated my last post.

Did you buy from the Fairphone online shop?
yes i buy it from a shop in Denmark buy ships in German
I posted in my first Post here
Maybe i have to wait to (Ubuntu touch) fixed the sound problem. thanks for your time

You should not have a problem with a new phone it is guaranteed fro two years.
Language is an issue, you may want to post as a new topic in Danish.
You say you bought it from a shop in Denmark, I asked if you bought it online and when.
Why do you want to downgrade? And why are you trying Android 9 although your goal is to install Ubuntu touch?
Anyway, the difference between FP3 and FP3+ is mainly different camera modules and an improved amplifier on the core module, not a speaker.
March 9, 2021, 5:33pm
The main speaker has been upgraded on the FP3+ but the improvement to the sound only comes with the FP3+ core module, both of which you have.
So before you try to change the OS it is important to get the speaker working.
By speaker here is meant the hands free one at the bottom left not the ear speaker at the top ~ this bottom one is the one that is tested.
Yes my goal is to install Ubuntu touch.
android 9 no sound (speaker)
android 10 sound (speaker)
Ubuntu touch no sound (speaker)
I have to wait for the new update from Ubuntu touch

OK that’s clearer: Ubuntu touch would be nice. Meanwhile you can change the launcher ~ I use Nova Launcher and at least get rid of the Google Search Bar and more.
I downloaded the apk and installed as I don’t use Google Play Store etc.
Here’s a link if you don’t mind ‘risk’
