Thread: Blown speaker

Well, I purchased my iPhone today at an AT&T store, brought it home and activated it without going through AT&T (i used mods). Everything went fine and I connected it to T-Mobile's service. Nothing is wrong with the software except I noticed what low volume the ringer is.
When I press my finger over the left speaker (on the iPhone, bottom) virtually all sound is cut off. Whereas if I set my finger on the right speaker there is virtually no effect. This has led me to believe they sold me an iPhone with a blown right speaker.
I'm just wondering what I should do. Should i bring it to the AT&T store to have it repaired, or to an Apple store. I am worried because I modified it to work with T-Mobile. I used an all software unlock and never opened the iPhone.
What is the deal with the warranty in this situation. Considering i've only owned it for 3 hours, there's no way I could have broken the iPhone.

The right grille is for the microphone. The iPhone only has one speaker- your phone is perfectly functional.

The volume is pretty low. I haven't seen any way to increase the volume yet.

ughh hope you don't feel like an oddball because I thought the same exact thing and ended up asking someone on youtube if it was just my iPhone but guess every phone is the same and I bought a ringtone from iTunes and omg they were very low and I sometimes stick to the "old phone" ringtone since I think is the loudest. Well good luck enjoying your iPhone cause I am.

If you add your own ringtones - you can throw them in an audio editor and crank the volume up. Thats - what I normally do.
then your ringers will ring better

I had the same thought as the original poster.
Queried it with the guy I bought the handset from - suffice to say he put me back on track with that thought.
