    Hi All. Tried to make a call today, and after waiting for about 30 seconds realized I wasn't hearing anything. I tried calling another person, and had no luck. So then I tried using the speaker phone and the call worked fine. I had the person continuously hum while I switched between speaker and ear piece and the ear piece never worked.

    How should I go about getting this fixed? I'm still in warranty and never got the phone wet. It also has dust under the screen.


    (sorry for the bad english/briefness of this, I'm in a rush)

    Take the iPhone on a trip to an Apple Store, and have a Genius sort the problem out.

    I'm having a similar issue. Yesterday the phone was working fine all day, and then a half hour later I went to go make another call, I discovered the ear speaker volume was very low and now every once in a while it makes crackling sounds both on speaker phone and through the ear speaker. It's really hard to hear through the ear speaker now. This is a refurb I've only had for about two months or so, no water damage whatsoever.

    Made an appointment for the iPod bar tonight, hopefully they'll replace it.
