One speaker not working on my iPhone 4?

I put some music on my speakers on the iPhone 4 and I noticed that sound is only coming out of the Right one. My husband is experiencing the same thing on his phone. Specifically, if we play music on the speakers, and cover the Right speaker, you can't hear anything. If you cover the Left speaker, you hear fine.

Anyone else noticed this? Am I missing something?

One of them is a Mic, not a speaker.

Yeah they have had this same defect with iPhone's from previous years as well. Steve will never fix it I guess.

I almost asked the same question a long time ago, in the plain 3G days. I was lucky enough to have noticed the sticky.

But really, I'm sure many of us, who didn't read about it first, also thought that one speaker wasn't working.

OP, no problem. At least there's another thread now that will help the next guy who searches.

To be fair I posted this on a forum when I got my first iPhone (3G Launch). But yep, still only one speaker as per the sticky iPhone only has one speaker.
