    give me a loaner phone as my phone is being fixed...or :Dwill they give me a new iphone straight up?

    I'm pretty sure the latter is a pipe dream, but can anyone confirm?

    BTW, the problem is only one of the speakers work...so If I am holding the phone covering the left speaker the iPhone is essentially mute.

    That's because it is a mic on the otherside. One one side is a speaker. I'm pretty sure they wont give you a new phone or a loaner because nothing is wrong with your phone, my friend ..

    Only one of those 'speakers' is a speaker, the other is a microphone.

    sorry to burst your bubble but only one speaker is used for sounds and music. the other which is the right speaker is a microphone. if you really want a new phone which if you take to an apple store they will replace it new on the spot. just make up some excuse and see if they believe you.

    i have had 10 iPhone's replaced cuz i insisted the speakers didnt work. you see, i was under the assumption that if i held the phone upside down, that the acceleramator would changed the earpiece to a microphone.

    [/sarcasm]

    but seriously, the left side is a speaker, the right is a microphone. Just in case you didnt know.............
