    Hey,

    My iPhone's receiver (I'm assuming it's called this, the little speaker/earpiece above the screen) recently died.
    I have no idea when it happened, I only noticed about a week ago when I couldn't hear a caller, but they could hear me. On speakerphone it works fine.

    I originally though t it was because of ios 7 (I had it legitimately installed), however after multiple reboots and a restore back to iOS6 earlier (set up as new phone) it still does not work.


    The lock button is also intermittent, it often takes about 5 presses for it to lock... It seems to be one sided I think (IE pressing the left side of the button works fine but the right doesn't).

    I have booked a genius appointment for today, but before I go I was wondering whether there was a simple fix I am missing, and whether anyone else has had these problems?

    Thanks,
    Will

    I don't think there's any other option than getting it replaced at the Genius Bar.

    Ok thanks, I thought so. My worry is they'll think I've dropped it, and charge me :/

    .... Which I haven't :p I'm very paranoid xD

    I highly doubt that. Or is it smashed to pieces?

    Just got back, they tested the lock button, but didn't even look at the speaker thing, and just replaced it :)
