Ok I went to listen to my voicemail today and i couldnt hear anything at all...i turned speaker on and could hear it fine. Last night i downloaded the software update and put it on my iphone and then i put the earphones in and called someone...after that i didnt do anything else my phone charged overnight and i have not dropped it at all since. It worked fine before i downloaded the update or put the earphones in. Has anyone else had this problem or know how to fix it?

I had the same problem, and am on my 2nd iPhone because of this problem, but the 2nd time I encountered it I tried this quick fix, and it remedied the problem.

I hope Apple addresses this problem soon though as I do know many people are returning their iPhones because of this.
