my new iphone 4 has suddenly stopped letting me hear incoming calls unless I switch on the loudspeaker. I can hear the ring tone, it connects, but then I can't hear the caller until I press the speakerphone on.  Volume is set to max, and silent mode is off.  This problem seemed to start after a trip abroad.   Any ideas?

    The phone may be "stuck" in headset mode.  Try plugging and unplugging your headset several times to free up the switch in the jack.

    I've tried that - I'd never used the headphones before I got this problem!  I got in contact with my network provider, have hard re-set, switched airplane mode on and off, hard re-set again, re-synched/re-set phone via iTunes...still no joy.  Now the only solution I've been offered is trying a different phone to see if the SIM is knackered.  As I have a micro SIM I've got to wait for the post to deliver a conversion kit so it will fit in my old iphone.....
