    ok, from the beginning, i got something on my phone yesterday (only on the screen) so i wiped it off with a damp paper towel and maybe i wiped past the speaker/microphone, im honestly not sure if i did. the phone was fine.
    well today when my phone rings or makes any kind of noise, it is super low and you can barely hear it!
    YES, the volume is all the way up. :)
    im just not sure what to do at this point. i've read up on all the moisture points and ive checked them out and nothing looks like its indicating water damage. my phone is out of warranty, i've had it about a year and a half. im not sure if it would be worth it to drive all the way up to the apple store just to have them tell me i need to buy a new phone.

    any suggestions?

    They will tell you to pay an out of warranty fee of $200 to replace the phone.

    They will try to take you for a ride and charge you $200(since you're OOW). Chances are you need the dock connector(which houses the speaker) replaced. Should run you about $50-$60 roughly. Save some $ and skip the Apple store since you already know what they're more than likely going to tell you.

    As long as they're not biased to everything needs fixing. ;)

    They're good and reputable for sure. I dont think we'll have any probs.
    Their inside info and hands on experience Im sure will be valuable to many and they're not here just for profit but making friends and assisting the macrumors community.
