    If I get my ear really close to the speaker, I can hear it working even though all apps are killed. It only stops when I lock the phone.

    Do you think someone is spying on you, hacked it, and is listening in through your speakers?

    But speakers can't record, only the microphones.

    No, I hear the noise only on the speaker. Try it your self, go to the spotlight and put your ear on the speaker.

    First you need to calm down. This is not a life threatening situation here!

    If it is hardware then a restore will do nothing. Have you considered taking your 4S to Apple for them to look at, it is free to tell you if something is wrong.

    Actually I turned off the iPhone than on and now there is no sound but I still think it's strange on my iPhone. A few weeks ago I accidentally responded to a spam mail but I changed my email password and restored my iPhone back than. I am also a bit paranoid.

    Like I said, just take a big breath and relax. Opening up spam on your iPhone is quite safe, although I would not do it on a PC.

    Never hurts to change the user name and password ever once in a while.

    A little paranoid can be a good thing, you just got to keep everything in perspective!

    Hope you have a great week!
