    This happend to me in DEC and Apple told me to do a reset of the phone and wait 30 seconds before turning it on.  It worked after that.  Now today I am having the issue again and it won't go away no matter what I do.  I even restored my phone 3 times the first time it worked for one call and then went back to no sound again.  I am off to the Apple store in Boston tonight to get this fixed.  I refuse to leave my phone with them because I need it for work and other stuff.  They should have fixed this issue by now and they haven't.

    None of the software issues seemed to work for me; pressing on the glass did.


    I removed the screen to find a screw had come loose from the speaker mount. The speaker being connected by contact plates wasnt fully held down, so the connection was broken.


    After putting the screw back in its rightful place i have had no futher issues. (albeit the past 20 minutes, im pretty sure the issue has been solved for me though.)


    My phone was out of warranty sooo... probably best leave it to Apple if your beepety boop is still under Apples cloak of happy.
