I would say most probabely Hardware. The earpiece speaker has either has bad or has moved from its locations and does not connect to the terminals on your phone.

I want Skype on my iphone 3G. please direct me to a link or suggest which version will work? Thank you.


All Skype versions work perfectly for the iPhone 3G, unless you did some buggy jailbreak. Go to the App Store app on your iPhone and download Skype from there.

If you're really having problem making it work, I would guess did a jailbreak using earlier revisions of redsn0w 0.9.7.. that's a little buggy release of redsn0w. To fix it, restore & re-do the jailbreak using a other tools such as sn0wbreeze.

CLICK HERE to download sn0wbreeze 2.2.1. For guide on how to use sn0wbreeze, READ THIS.

I would like to downgrade firmware on iPhone 3G from 4.0 to 3.1.1 Please help


There is no 3.1.1 firmware version available for the iPhone 3G. 3.1.1 is only for ipod touches. To downgrade to 3.1.2 (http://modmyi.com/forums/downloads/firmware/6/iphone-3g-3-1-2-32353/) or 3.1 (http://modmyi.com/forums/downloads/firmware/6/iphone-3g-3-1-32183/), download from either of the provided links, go into iTunes and to your iPhone tab, shift+click on restore for windows, or alt+click restore on mac, navigate to the downloaded file, and open it. Your phone will restore to the downloaded firmware.

My iphone will not ring and i checked the orange dot


Some users who have recently updated/restored to the new iPhone firmware 3.0 have reported to have got into a problem where their phone randomly doesn’t ring when there is a call nor does the keyboard or slide to unlock button sound anymore. I got into this problem as well after unlocking and jailbreaking my iPhone 3G with firmware 3.0, my iPhone suddenly stopped ringing on calls randomly, resulting in missing a lot of important calls.
So if your iPhone isn’t ringing sound on calls, or if you are unable to hear the keyboard or slide to unlock click sounds, then try the following fixes before you panic and call Apple support:
Fix #1: Push feature is currently not working properly on jailbroken iPhone’s. If you have installed an application which supports Push Notification System then try disabling the Push feature as it may solve the problem.
Fix #2: Try Resetting the iPhone: Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. This will reset your phone’s setting to factory defaults. Your contacts, calendars photos and any other data will stay intact.
Fix #3: There is a slight possibility that your iPhone’s headphone jack may have got some dust or rust which is causing the phone to think that the headphones are still plugged in when they actually aren’t. Try blowing out air in the headphone jack or try plugging the headphones in and out repeatedly. This trick may solve the no sound problem.
Fix #4: Restore/Update you iPhone back and start afresh: If the above solutions doesn’t help in solving your problem then you will have to start from scratch by first restoring your iPhone to the the original firmware
3.0 from iTunes, jailbreak it using redsn0w and then finally unlock(3G users only) it using ultrasn0w. This has fixed my problem.
Fix #5: Install Insomnia from Cydia: Install Insomnia as your last resort. When you press the power button on the top, iPhone goes into sleep mode after 30 seconds, in the process turning off your WiFi, sound and other stuff. When Insomnia app (available for free from Cydia) is enabled, applications will keep running and sound & WiFi will stay connected when the screen is off. This should fix your problem if all of the above solutions have failed to fix it.

Can only use speakerphone to hear caller's voice on my iPhone


It's usually caused by a defective or dislodged electronic module that sits behind the ear speaker, this should be covered under warranty unless there are visible marks of the drop. If you're not covered, you can try a iphone repair guide websites, there are also places that sell iphone parts.

Iphone sound not working?


the iphone thinks it is still docked. Turn off the phone, then turn it back on and it should clear it. if not try restoring the phone in itunes.
This problem should not continue once restored, and if it does then see the people over at an apple store so they can make sure your phone is ok. They might even replace it for free.

I have the pioneer DEH-P7000UB in a Vauxhall Vectra. I put the head unit in the car, connected my IPhone (not the 3G version) set the head unit to USB mode and it try's to read my IPhone then comes up with...


error 19 is a communication error code with the ipod itself so either the cable is bad or the connectiontion on the ipod or deck is bad or the ipod itself may have a bad rom for external use. this info comes straight from the tech support manual for Pioneer that we car audio techs use (even if you call pioneer they will tell you mthe same thing).

try this :

Disconnect the cable from iPod.
Once iPod main menu is displayed, connect the cable again.
Reset the iPod.
