    My I Phone has no sound from the ear piece! I answe a call and I have no sound, so I put it on speaker and talk and it works just fine. Are there any settings for the ear piece other than volume control? I have the verizon i phone and its updated to the latest software. I did not take the insurance out on it but its under warranty yet I have not gotten it wet and I have it in a ballistic case since it was new! Any IDEAS?

    Take a look in the earphone port. Anything like lint get in there? Try putting ear buds in. Getting sound from those? Try plugging and unplugging the earbuds / earphones a few times. This sometimes fixes things. Another thing to try is a hard reset/reboot. Press and hold home and lock button together until you see the Apple logo. No data will be lost, it's just an extended type
    Of reboot on the phone.

    Unfortunately I had this same problem & took it to Apple Genius. I had to have mine replaced. He said they had already replaced 4 phones for this issue.

    Are you saying through the headphones or the earpiece. If the latter, did you remove the plastic?

    The phone has no sound from the ear piece. The headphones work just fine with my phone.

    If you still have the original plastic over the phone, cut it down some from the top, it's covering the earpiece. That's what happened to me. Lol

    Do you have to send your defective one back? Or Have you sent it back already?
