Is anyone else having problems with the speaker?

The speaker that I hear people talk to me out of on my iPhone 5 has started sounding muffled and staticy. Yesterday I went to lay my phone down on counter and it somehow fell off and landed face first on the wooden floor, but there wasn't any cosmetic damage to the phone and everything seemed to be fine.

Do you think that short of a fall could've messed up my speaker? Anyway, verizon said they're on back order for at least a month, so I made an appointment with apple for Monday and they said they'll replace it. I didn't mention me dropping it. I have a case on it, but it landed on the front.

Do you have any ideas as to other possibilities that It could be and will apple give me grief about replacing it even though the phone is in perfect condition?

It doesn't make this noise every phone call.

I was wondering if maybe it wasn't something I did, and possibly just a problem with the phone?

I'm not. I just don't see how such a short drop could've caused this and that's why I am looking for other possibilities.

Should I reset everything to factory settings and see if that fixes it?
