    The speaker on the iphone 4 just stopped it working was listening to music through the speaker then all of a sudden it just stopped playing i can listen to it with headphones but not the speaker. I also can't hear the ringer also and only feel it vibrate.. what is the problem exactly?

    If you're sure you don't have the silent switch on, do a reboot. If that doesn't work, make an appointment and take it into the Apple Store or call the number.

    Same problem here.

    Looking at this board it looks like this is a common problem.

    did you try quitting some of the apps you have on background? I find that when I use multitasking on some certain apps and then suddenly I'm not able to use my ringer, it's increasing the sound volumes but not the ringer and quitting some of the apps in background will take the ringer feature back on. :rolleyes:

    I was reading where the Pandora app and a few others may be causing the problem. Guess what this is one of the three apps I installed. Deinstalled it but still have problem. Apple support now wants me to re sync phone with I-tunes. Will try that when I get home from work.

    You probably don't need to uninstall the apps, just quit them all, and not just radio or music apps, quit all apps running in background and see what happens.

    Nothing is running as far as I can see. I did the system reset by holding the power button and back button down. Didn't fix problem.

    you could try calling somebody (like yourself) and switch on loudspeaker immediately. worked for me, but only temporarily. :(
