4S plays game sounds thru ear speaker when muted!
I've been having this weird problem with my 4S.
If i restart my phone, then mute it and start let's say for example Angry Birds I will hear the Angry Birds music and sound fx thru the ear speaker.
This happens with all apps, when the phone is muted the sound goes thru ear speaker...
Even rebooting the phone doesn't fix this, what does it opening Music app playing some song (while the phone is muted) which will play the music thru the correct speaker and then all sounds will be actually muted and not play thru the ear speaker.
Anyone else having this issue ?!
I tried searching the web a bit but didn't find anything on this, just some weird no audio on calls problem which i don't have...

When you slide your mute button to the mute (showing red) position does your unit vibrate and show the no audio icon? If not, it could be that your switch is defective and a trip to the genius bar in order. Of course as a (very crude) work-around you could simply lower your volume to zero to turn sound off completely. btw - I have seen games that for some reason still play sounds even when the mute is engaged.

I don't think I explained myself correctly... Or you didn't read my post
This is not normal behavior when pone is muted it plays ringtones/app sounds/message sounds thru the ear speaker... Not the bottom one but the one you put your ear on I don't believe that this could be explained with your last post...

I know that the headphone jacks on the Pre were total garbage, and the Iphone ones are excellent, but you could try taking your headset and plugging it in, pulling it out, repeat... Until you are sure there is no blockage in there.

Try going into the multitasking bar.
When I was in my Voice Memos, I noticed that there was an option to play through the earpiece or through the speaker with the AirPlay controls in the multitasking bar.
