    Hello.
    I got my iPhone 5c about 10 days ago and when making calls I can't hear the other person through the ear speaker. I have volume at max and I have EXTREMELY good hearing...I can hardly hear with the max volume in a quiet room. Any ideas???

    Did you remove the plastic cover that comes with the phone?

    Just checking, many people forget that although the plastic that comes over the screen of the iPhone (when new) serves as a great temporary screen protector, it does not have a hole for the earpiece speaker.

    Have you tried a reboot?

    Yes, if after a reboot, and a restore, the speaker volume isn't "right", then yes, I agree, go to Apple.

    I initially misinterpreted this as a knock against the 5C for being plastic.

    But yes please visit the Apple Store asap.

    I think I missed clarity in that initial post.
