Hello

About three hours ago, I got a text message on my iPhone, but the phone didn't make any sound when it was received. I replied, but again there was no sound. So I checked all the phone settings, made sure the phone wasn't in silent mode, made sure the sound settings were turned up, but still I couldn't get the phone to make any sound. I tried to play songs on the ipod, but no sound would come out - whether I had earphones plugged in or not. I called my girlfriend's phone, but she couldn't hear me on the phone and I couldn't hear her.

Basically, there is no sound whatsoever on the phone. And I'm completely at a loss as to what to do? I've reset it, I've plugged the earphone jack in and out a few times, and I've synced it back up with iTunes. And nothing seems to work.

Is this a known problem? And does anyone have any fix for it? Many thanks.

    Basics from the manual are restart, reset, restore from backup, restore as new.

    Try all of these.

    Yes. It will be as it was when it was new.


    Everything should be on your computer and included in your regular backup of your computer. Just sync it back is you did in the first place.

    If restored didn't help, it probably the hardware problem.

    I just got my iPhone 4 (again) like last wednesday.
    I was listening to music and the battery was about to run out.
    so i plug it in to charge it and then no sound comes from my phone.

    Sound only works when i make a call, they can hear me and i can hear them.
    if i try to put it on speaker it doesnt output sound?

    i've tried reseting, syncing, and the headset unplug re-plug thing.. and nothing.
    Advice?
