    Hey ya'll i was at the esso club and ordered a plate of teriyaki wings and i sat my phone on the bar unknowingly into some teriyaki sauce and in the process clogged up the ear piece/receiver. I took a toothepick and cleaned some of it out but i can still only hear it thru the ear piece at mabe 30% of what it should be, so know i have to use it on speakerphone whenever i make a call. Any thoughts/tips on how to fix this?

    Try and open the phone and clean it out if you know what you're doing.

    Else, bring to the Apple Store and see if they can help.

    More than likely has gone through the grill into the phone, you can take it apart and clean it or pay for an out of warranty repair at Apple.
