    Yesterday my phone suddenly got stuck on speakerphone. It won't give me any other audio output options (usually, I get 3 - iphone, speaker, and my bluetooth headset device).

    Any thoughts? I'm really hoping it's something simple, so that I don't have to restore (what with the apps I've got). I've searched the forums but can't find this issue.

    Thanks in advance.:confused:

    It should be as easy as taping speaker phone when on the phone and it should switch back to earpiece or give you the options. Beyond that, I would restore, all the apps are on your computer, so there is nothing to loose.

    I did tap the speaker icon, but the iphone is unresponsive. I guess I'll try to restore.

    I have the exact same problem. It gets stuck on speaker.

    I try to make a bluetooth call and it sticks on speaker. I try to switch it, and it doesn't work. Just stays on speaker.

    I disable bluetooth and try to make a regular call, and its stuck on speaker.

    This is intermittent, so really annoying.

    Did you find a solution?

    Same problem on iOS 5.01 on a 4s

    Initiating a call on headset (either bluetooth or wired), the phone locks up on speaker, but with no fuctioning mike. I can hear the other party on the call, but they can't hear me. Switching back to the phone, unplugging the headset or switching off bluetooth has no effect. I have to reboot the phone to clear the condition. I've restored from scratch, even replaced the phone and still have the same fault. It's clearly a software bug.

    try hard reset the phone and see if it fixes the issue.
