That's what happened to me too, but a reset worked for me. Try resetting again I guess, don't know what else to tell you. The speaker works, as you know since you can hear the ringtones, so I don't know. Keep resetting. It never happened to me again.

If you have used the earphones or anything else in the earphone jack there is a chance that the switch that turns off the phone sound is stuck. Plug the earphones in and out of the jack and see if you can free up the switch.

Andy - this same thing happened to me after I used my Belkin adapter for my auxillary plug in the car. I had to put my earbud plug in, push down and jiggle the plug aggressively to force the circuit to close -- then pull the plug out and see what happens.
This solved my issue - - hopefully it solves yours.

Happened to me...had to reinsert the headphones, listened to music for a second and then unplugged. Sound was working fine after that. So far it has been just a one time occurrence.

I remember that I also did a full restore when my sound went. You might want to consider this as your last resort. I did a full restore, then put the earbud plug in - pushed down with some good pressure while twisting it around. I did this for about 3-5 seconds and all the sudden heard a 1-2 second noise come from the speaker. Unplugged the earbuds and all was fine.

Andy - also, keep in mind that if a restore and jiggling the earbud plug does not work you will most likely be exchanging the phone. So, make sure you really give that plug a good bit or pressure and wiggle it aggressively back and forth when it is in.
I am almost positive that you have a stuck sensor within the jack. When your earbuds are unplugged the sensor is staying open, thus, telling the iPhone to put all sound through the headphone jack.
This happen to me once and I scrambled the various forums to try and get help. Finally, someone told me to do this and it worked. I have yet to have the problem again, but I have also not plugged it into my car again via the Belkin adapter.
