    I had this problem intermittently with my iphone.

    I inserted and removed the headphones until it worked. Remove it gently and slowly by grabbing the jack (not the cord) seemed to work best.

    Done that and still no luck,

    Thought the speaker could have been broke until I had it on loudspeaker, hmm...

    No way to edit this in the settings? Really dont want to restore it all.

    Restore it, but it probably won't make a difference. You'll need to restore it anyway to take it to Apple. My first iPhone did this and it was a hardware issue. Other than that it was the best iPhone I've had, which sucked having to return it.

    Try a hard reset, you do this by holding down the home button and sleep/wake button at the same time until the phone restarts.
