Making phone calls

Same here. I can make a call but no audio, and as soon as I click accept 
on an incoming call, it crashes. I can hear audio by steaming radio:

wget -O - | madplay -

but I can't hear anything on a call. I tried all the .state files but 
only /etc/alsa/stereoout.state works at all, and that has audio on the 
headset and speaker at the same time.

I am using an 3 year old ATT SIM.

The display is awesome.
