Ive been messing with here 8700 because mine is on the way. Well now she can hear someone on the phone but cant talk. I dont recall messing with any kind of muting options. Any ideas on how to get here talking again?

Maybe you'll be sleeping in the dog house. Try a hard reset (take the battery out and put it back in with the power on)

Wheb you make a call, press the mute button on the top of the phone.

Wow! You are pushing it! Possibly breaking a BB and on top of that it is your wifes. Hope you have a passport ready!

I assume you have tried adjusting the volume, but maybe not, so I'll ask. And what is the default volume setting in phone options?

The 87XX series devices have a very small hole on the bottom left face of the device to allow air in to the microphone. If that hole is obstructed it results in the problem you're describing.

I wouldn't recommend taking it apart. Just try and get a pin or paperclip and clean it out.
