iPhone XR XR has no earpiece volume... can't hear people unless I'm on speaker.

Iphone XR, I can't hear from the headset when I get calls, I can only hear from the speaker phone or wearing my airpods.

Does anyone know if this happens with the XR? Seems the earpiece went dead.
 

now i see it

You could try restoring the OS to new. If that doesn't fix it - it's toast. Repair or discard. The problem you describe is very common with the iPhone 7.

yes, nothing happens.

Sworn the Iphone is bulletproof.

I will try again to backup and restore and see if a second time it works.

Happened to me with my iPhone 11 Pro Max - Apple replaced under warranty as it was a hardware issue. Try playing music and it’ll only fire from the bottom
Speaker and sound off.
Contact Apple.
