    Hello all,

    This problem is discussed in many forums and in many threads in this forum. But I have a very different situation. I purchased a iphone 4 locked to AT&T. I unlocked it using gevey sim and then jailbreak it using jailbreakme.com. It was running 4.3.3 and BB 04.10.01.

    After all this I tried to call someone and found out that ear piece is not working. I searched it on different forums and some people suggested that a clean restore can fix this. So I updated my phone to 4.3.5. and to bypass the activation screen, i again jailbreak it using redsnow, though its tethered. unlock works perfect even better than 4.3.3, jailbreak, installous, cydia everything is working fine but still ear piece is not working.

    I checked it using voice memo, recorded some voice played it on speaker, I hear the voice but when I tap the speaker button to direct it to another speaker, nothing happens, i mean i cant hear anything.

    I checked ear phone port for any dirt, inserted and pulled out the ear phone's pin a few times, applied every proposed solution available on web but in vain.

    I have also read somewhere that ear piece stops working after jail breaking. Has any incident happened like this before? But I can't bypass activation screen without jail breaking.

    Any body please suggest something. Or Do i need to replace the ear peice?

    Did you buy it used? Did you check the water damage indicators before you bought the phone?

    Do you still have warranty? If not water damaged, Apple will replace it

    Does it work when the phone isn't jailbroken?

    Its not water damaged, I checked the indicators, these are white. Yeah I bought it used and unlocked using gevey sim. And for gevey sim to work we need jail break, so I couldn't check if ear piece was working when it wasn't jail broken. and now have updated to 4.3.5, and to bypass the activation screen, I need to jailbreak it.

    Anyway thanks for the suggestions, I am taking it the tech guys. They will check, whats the problem.

    I will update this thread when solved.
