Must use Speaker to hear phone calls -built in ear speaker auto-disabled
SYMPTOM: When I make a phone call, I need to either use a BT headphone or press the "speakerphone" softkey in order to hear the other party. When I raise the volume (side button) it says "headphone" on the display, but no headphones are plugged in.
CAUSE (this has been happening since...): I had the iPhone plugged into a mini jack cable that connects to the AUX function of my car. We were listening to music when driving when I received an incoming call. We were actually able to take the call on the car (via speakers and built-in mic in car, tho it was not in "hands free" mode), but ever since, I can't make a call and hear the other party by holding the phone up to my ear. It seems that the iPhone still thinks there is a phantom plug in the phono jack.

If it still does this after a hard reset and a software restore, it's usually caused by a defective audio jack module, this should be covered under warranty. If you're not covered, you

Notifications sounds from either external speaker or headphones, but never from the ear piece volume. Your question suggest that the external speaker is damage but it only works on external speaker. Try using a headphone or a bluetooth to make calls, if they work, then you need to fix the external speaker.
It could be a speaker issue. Try using you phone on speaker phone, or ear buds with with built in MIC or blue tooth headset. If it works with these options then its an issue with the speaker. If it doesnt work even with other options then its a more serious issue
Do you have the phone on speaker or the earphone? There are differnet volume adjustments for speaker vs. in ear vs. the headphones. If one is really quiet, try one of the other ways to see if it is an issue with a speaker, or an issue with the phone?
There could be a Three problems. In all cases you have to get it serviced..
Cause no.1_ Your ear speaker has stop functioning.
Cause No.2_ There could be a connection loss with ear speaker.

1- Probably the problem is with the speaker = change the in-built speaker OR 2- The problem is with the earphone jack. = Check if a headphone sign is there on the screen. If yes... then connect & remove headphone/ear-set jack into your mobile few times till the headphone sign is gone from the mobile screen.
This just happen to me 45 seconds ago what you do is put the phone on the charger and make a call to your self or voice mail and then you unplug the charger and hit your speaker or try and hit your speaker button while its on charger then unplug one or the other. this is what i did to fix this problem
This is a factory defect from the switch inside the headset plug which when used will disconnect sound to the ear speaker on the phone and route it to the headphone or an ear piece.When this switch is closed by a fault you won't be able to hear anything through the ear speaker once the connection is established.
