    For some reason in getting no sound from the left mic while right is fine. Should I take it to the apple store? would I need an appointment and how much would it cost to fix?

    The left one is a mic and the right one is the speaker.

    There is only one speaker on the iPhone.

    The left "grate" is a microphone. The right one is the speaker.

    Well least you didn't use certain words

    Main reason I was worried as the sound didn't appear to be as strong as it has been so I thought something might of been broke.

    By the way, I find it amusing you wrote left mic in your OP. ;)

    Depends on what you're doing, some applications have their own volume control. I believe Apple has finally split the ringtone volume slide and general (ie: music) volume slider in iOS 5.

    You want the mic to act like a speaker. This one is better than most..... :D

    Well, what would be the point? An inch of separation doesn't exactly produce useful stereo, unless you balance the phone on your nose.

    One speaker (both L+R channel combined into mono) and one mic. Makes sense to me on a phone. Stereo output for bluetooth and headphones/earbuds works fine.
