    I have an iPhone 3GS. It's barely a month old and the headphone jack has quit working (I tried blowing canned air in the jack) and one of the speakers is louder than the other.

    What's the likelihood of getting this fixed or replaced by apple?

    Is anyone else having this problem?

    1. There is only ONE speaker.
    2. Apple should fix/replace it as long as it hasn't been water-damaged.

    Check to see if the iPhone has come into contact with water by looking at the bottom of the headphone jack closely with a light. If it appears half-red or completely red, your iPhone has been wet, and your warranty is void.

    Make an appointment at the Genius Bar (if possible). Make sure to be courteous and don't go in there expecting a replacement, the less you say, the better IMO.

    I wonder how many people actually went to the genius bar complaining that the "other" speaker is not working...

    If you're happy with the phone and there are no other issues such as cracking, yellow screen etc.. Check for lint in the jack. I had the remote feature of the headphones quit on my 3g. Small tweezers were able to pull some stuff out to make it work again.

    Read the title. It clearly says "headphone". Only ONE of his headphone speakers work. Lower your ego a notch and think for a second man.
