I just got my first iPhone last week. Very nice device! This morning, however, I noticed that there was no sound coming from the external speaker. Vibrate was fine, just no audible notifications. Checked the mute button and settings, everything looked ok. I googled the issue and found it to be a known issue. One forum post I read suggested I gently squeeze the lower right corner of the phone, where the speaker is located. It worked! If it happens again I will exchange it.
Have any of you experienced this issue and what your solution is/was.
Thanks for any info you might have.

I haven't had that specific issue but do find the speaker to be far too quiet, even at full volume. The sound quality is good, but the decibels aren't there. My DROID 1 had speaker(s) that cranked.
I have noticed some variability in sound output, but never a lack of sound when I expected it. Squeezing the lower right of the phone has no impact on sound from my phone.

I hate the sound on the IPhone compared to Droid. I installed custom higher db ringtones and poked a pin sized hole in the speaker screens. I also installed the volume booster from Cydia. Still not to my liking. Maybe I am deaf...hmmm...

I've started having the same issue, but it only happened after the update from 4.2.8 to 4.2.9. Suddenly sound will completely mute out for no reason. Powering off the iphone and starting it back up gets the sound back but a few hours later it loses all the sound again. I also noted that some apps just will freeze up during installation and nothing that I do will fix it until I power off and power back on.
I guess I am going to have to do a wipe and restore and see if it was a bad install, if not then I guess it will be back to the apple store again.
