    Hold the home & power buttons at the same time until the Apple appears on the screen... then let go and let it restart.

    Obvious questions: do you have Sounds enabled in your Settings>Sounds and Settings>Notifications>YourAppName for the text tones and app notifications? And are you sure your volume is turned up in your music app?

    And the other obvious thing not noted by Massie... have you checked the 'silent' switch?

    I have the feeling this is one of those things that would be easily diagnosed in person but might be tough online. You don't have Do Not Disturb enabled, do you? (It's in Settings.) If you have an Apple Store nearby it would probably be easiest to just drop in and ask about it.

    What happens when you start a song? That detail about not being able to turn up the sound makes it sound like it could be an issue with the headphone jack--like the phone thinks you have headphones plugged in...try putting some in, playing music, stopping it, and taking the headphones out.

    Yea tried all that when I play a song I can hear with head phones but take them out no sound - what is strange is that I noticed an icon on top beside time and it like a loudspeaker icon - never noticed it until this problem - any ideas

    Based on these pages I feel like its still likely to be a headphone jack or dock connector issue:
    Volume bar has disappeared - No sound in apps - iPhone 4 - iFixit

    Basically, your phone thinks its connected to some sort of audio out device. The speaker icon sounds like a notification icon from Lockinfo—are you jailbroken?
