    Hello MacRumors,

    I managed to drop my phone briefly in some snow this morning, this has happened in the past before with no issues, but today was different. Now my top speaker (near the front-camera of the iPhone 4) does not work. Every other speaker is working fine (the one at the bottom, as well as headphones).

    Anybody have any ideas as to what I can do to fix this?

    TLDR; It's an iPhone 4, dropped in the snow for a couple seconds, top speaker doesn't work.

    Thanks!

    Are you talking about the small hole at the top of your phone (not the headphone port) because if you are it is a microphone not a speaker

    No, the speaker, right above the screen, next to the camera

    Are you talking about the ear speaker? The ones that lets you hear others when you call them right?
    The snow/water probably damaged it and it shorted out.
    You gotta be more carefull with electronics and try to keep them away from snow, water or any kind of moisture.
    Bring it to Apple and see if they can help you out.

    The phone is working now with that speaker, maybe it just needed time to dry? Phew this takes a load off my chest!

    There is only one "speaker" on the iPhone and it is located on the bottom of the phone.

    He was talking about the speaker you put your ear to, to hear calls.

    Then you were just being difficult. However, the earpiece is technically a speaker. He was correct.
