    Same problem after two months. Trying the restore function through iTunes now, though not hopeful. Very surprised that Apple forum monitor has not broken into this stream as this seems to be a recurring problem.

    Same Problem. Started this morning half way thru a call. Help.

    I called AppleCare, told them about the problem and went through a checklist with me. once he saw there was a hardware problem, he made an appointment for me at the Beijing Genius Bar for me, entered the necessary info in a new case number he set up. I went to the Genius Bar and they swapped a new phone. Excellent service all around.

    My internal speaker has suddenly stopped working - well it the volume is incredibly low to the point of not being able to hear the other person if a gnat flies past me! The external speaker and headset all work fine - just the speaker that is against your ear if you are making a normal call.....!?

    I have tried a hard reset and various other methods suggested on this and other blogs so far, all to no avail - do I really have to go in to an iphone store to resolve this or does someone have a solution?

    Please help!!

    BTW - do Apple experts review this forum, or is it only us poor users trying to help each other out?

    Not sure if you solved this problem. I had the same problem with my Iphone 4, since I don't have any warranty, I fixed the problem by replacing the handset speaker.... I took a chance and ordered it through Dealextreme, cost me $2.90 with free shipping. Followed some online instructions to take apart the phone ...... Now it works perfectly fine........ Hope this helps........

    I have the same problem, unfortunately out of the box the white iphone was faulty. tried all the suggestions, all failed. sending it back for a replacement.


    It seems, scanning the comments, that we have a number of purchases in asia. could this be part of a bad batch distributed in this part of the world?

    i bought mine in malaysia.

    I had the same problem, but I suppose it was a lucky guess the way I solved it. I supposed the problem was caused for bug in the software which made that when I disconnected the wired headphones, the sound was still trying to go to them, because the problem arose in the scenario. At first I tried the same that you all, restarting but it didn't work. Then I tried different things like connecting and disconnecting the headphones,working with the speakerphones, Bluetooth , and after some time It worked fine and it's being that way for a week now. I hope this last!!!. I keep thinking it’s not a hardware related problem but a software one, maybe with a bug no “sensing” the change from a way of speaker to another.

    Hi all,


    Same problem here, this time in Northern Europe! Got iPhone 4 32G Black yesterday and handset just does not work. I´ve searched thru all kinds of websites etc. and had lot of ideas but no correction to problem. Headset and speaker are OK.


    Unfortunately I cannot help anyone, but just informing that Apple is supplying some bad iPhone 4 in Northern Europe; Finland to be exact.

    Same issue here, too! My first iPhone 4 lasted nine days and then had serious software issues. They replaced it but then my second iPhone 4 lasted only 3 weeks before the handset speaker stopped working. After contacting Apple, I did a complete restore and that seemed to fix it! However, it is now broken AGAIN and I've restored it three times with no luck. So disappointing.
