    Morning all,

    Just noticed a strange 'problem' with my iPhone, while watching a few videos I noticed that the right hand speaker wasnt working, only the left hand one was. I havnt had a iPhone previous to this and I dont know anyone that had a 3G so im not entirely sure if it is indeed a fault. Tried music, videos, apps, ringtones etc but all come from the left speaker.

    Anybody come across this yet? Or am I just being a moron? :D

    Left grill thingy is a speaker and the right one is a microphone. This was the same on the old iPhone too.

    Me too.
    I was about to march to the genius bar.
    Christ, I would have felt like a moron.
    The problem with this is that playing super monkey ball or any game for that matter that is held in landscape mode means that the speaker cuts out entirely.

    Make that three. "I can't believe Apple would ship a unit with a bad speaker." :rolleyes:

    At least now I can get back to downloading apps ...

    Will someone freaking sticky one of the millions of threads about this?

    Wow, I can't believe I am seeing this thread again. I've seen this about 7 times in the past month, does no one read the documentation that comes with a device any more? :mad:

    No! We don't want to read any documentation and that is exactly the reason we buy Apple products #
