    I have poured over the forums and tried a couple of the fixes suggested, with no luck. So I'm posing the question again. About a week ago while driving I tried to play music from the iPod in my I phone. As I recall, the sound seemed to go in and out for a minute, then nothing. Speaker phone will not work, phone will not ring, alarm will not sound. When I plug it in to an external speaker i will hear sounds..but not if I plug it in the car stereo, and not when making calls while pressing speaker. I don't understand the difference there... There is a chance something got down in the plug area..but I've tried blowing it out, and repeatedly putting a headphone jack in and out of the hole. What is happening here? :(

    after posting this question, mysteriously...there were sounds! However, they are intermittent...and I noticed something. While playing a song, I gently pressed the bottom left corner of phone. When I did that, the sound stopped completely. Curious. Lol

    That sure sounds like a hardware issue to me, and it probably isn't gonna get any better.:( Is it repeatable? You don't say what version of iPhone that you have, but if it is an iPhone 4, it is still under warranty.

    Yes, the actual phone. Is the 3GS still in warranty? If you can repeat the problem, by pressing on that corner, make an appointment at the Apple Genius bar.
    You might get lucky, they may replace it even it it is out of warranty. It certainly wouldn't be the first time... Good Luck!
