    I've been getting this message every time I unlock since this morning. I now have no alerts for calls, texts, connect to power, etc. I know the speakers are fine because I recorded a voice memo and it played back loud and clear.

    Any suggestions? I tried a hard and soft reboot, plugging and unplugging the charging cable, and restoring. I really don't want to have to take it to Apple because I know it's gonna get replaced and then I'd have to buy more screen protectors.

    Check the water sensor, this happened to me because it was set off.

    Did it ever correct itself?

    No, I had to replace the phone. Luckily I knew someone who worked at the Apple Store so it didn't set me back any, but it was still terrible (it was a 1-day old 3G S).

    I got this one on Monday and applied my BSE yesterday. I've done it a large handful of times and never had an issue. :(

    The usual suspect is fluff or dirt in the dock connector.

    Clean / blow it out really well, and see if that helps.

    Luck!

    Nope. Both sensors are white.

    Tried this with no results. I blew it out with compressed air and there's nothing visibly jammed anywhere in there.
