    I have a 3GS. It's pretty new, maybe 6 weeks old, tops.
    None of the sounds are working on my phone.
    The speakers are fine, I can get them to ring using the settings.
    I tried powering off.
    I went to general settings and hit reset a couple times.
    I plugged the headphones in and out a couple times even though I have never used the headphones.
    I think that's all the normal things to try.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thank you

    Try flipping the switch on the top left side of your phone so the red dot isn't visible.

    That was it.
    Someone figured it out for me.
    This isn't a great excuse, but I'm going to use it.
    I have the Otter box shockproof cover on my phone, so the switch was hidden.
    It was under a flap, but I didn't look there.

    Thanks for the help anyway.
