    I got mine working by plugging in headphones,

    Starting a song in the iPod app

    Pausing it,

    And then unplugging headphones and clicking play

     

    All sound has returned to the phone, when I was updating it did stick for ages on the page with the apple logo and progress bar, I restarted my phone and then it resumed, anyone with the sound issue have this when updating?

    Had same problem. Fixed it by plugging in earphones. When i removed the earphones the speaker-sound started working normally.

    ok the clock trick worked for sounds but my music still wasnt playing so I used a q-tip to clean the connector on the bottom and now it works! Other pages said to used 91% alcohol (rubbing alcohol) or something while the phone is shut off because in my case my phone was thinking it was connected to a dock. So far so good...

    I found in my case that it was a generic charger causing the iPad to think it was connected to a dock. Once I removed the charger my sound came back. It works fine with the official charger.  Hope this helps

    If no sound comes out, place it on a dock then remove it. It worked for me. The phone thinks its already docked so you have to place it on one then remove it and it should work!

    This is happening with my iPad that's updated to iOS 6. The iPad thinks it's connected to a Dock. I cannot plug it into a dock b/c the only ones I have are for iPhones.

     

    P.S. this is not happening with my iPhone or my wife's iPhone

    I had the same issue... I fixed it just by plugging in my 30-pin to HDMI adapter and then sound came back through my iPhone speaker.

    So I have tried everything in this forum, hard reset, resetting, earphones, dock, moving the side button off/on still my iphone doesn't have sound, soo my last resort is going to my husband laptop and restore to original? cause I had just got this iphone 4s a week ago and haven't back it up or anything to icloud or itunes or nothing I know I will lose everything but all does apps that I payed how do I get them back? and if hooking the phone to the computer doesn't resolve it I'm soo frustraded I don't know what else to do.

    I updated my New iPad first thing this morning and all went well till around 3pm PDT when WiFi started going completely bonkers.  By the time I got home around 5pm, WiFi was working fine again but now I have a even weirder issue - sound works as long as my iPad is on but when it turns itself off, NO notification alerts of any kind show up.  However, if it is turned on, the alerts work fine.....very strange.

    I have tried all of the above on my iPhone 4S, with no resolve. I can adjust audio when the headphones are plugged in. Upon removing the headphones, i see the ringer icon without the bars below that indicate levels. Did not have this issue when upgrading an iPhone 4.

     

    When starting Passbook, I also receive the message "Cannot connect to iTunes Store" on both the iPhone 4 and 4S. Access to the store is available through the App Store icon on my home screen.

     

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    I discovered my problem and it was my own doing.  There are two options for setting "Do Not Disturb" and I had both set instead of using one or the other.  When I set them correctly, sounds starting working just fine.  My bad.....
