Does this happen only while calling your girlfriend? :-)

No seriously: Did yout try different targets: land-line or mobile? Is it
the same when you are not calling but being called?

Which software and which version of it are you using? QtMoko, SHR, ...?

What I would try first is to run the phone without front cover and check
if then there is still a problem with the microphone.

Next you could try to use arecord or whatever you like to record
something from the microphone and check if the volume-level is ok.
