    Default Can't hear out of earpiece. Please Help.
    I have and iPhone 3G. I cannot hear through my earpiece at all. I can hear fine through speakerphone or through headphones or bluetooth.

    I have done the following to try and fix:

    1. Checked #3 cable.

    2. Re-jailbroke, and set up as New in itunes.

    3. Replaced the digitizer.

    4. plugged and unplugged headphones multiple times.

    nothing has worked as of yet.

    Does anyone know what I can do to fix this problem?

    are you sure the connector on the motherboard isn't damaged? Does the proximity sensor work?

    Yes the proximity works fine, so does speakerphone and headphones. its just the earpiece. When someone calls, or if I call, I can't hear through earpiece.

    nope. Could it be a jailbreak issue? It worked fine before. My LCD screen went out, and I had to replace it. And when I JB it again, my earpiece wasn't working.

    Did you try replacing with a new pre assembled front unit, instead of just a digitiser?

    could be just a bad quality part.

    The several 3g iPhones with no ear speaker function that I have repaired have all been damaged flex cable #3. Some have perfect proximity function, some both speaker and proximity are out. But all have been due to bad flex cable #3. It is a simple fix that can be done leaving the digitizer and LCD on the mid-frame. You need to get a new cable #3 however. Flex #3 is very fragile, you have to be very careful with it.

    Good luck,

    Brad

    I'll try that. I have an extra #3 cable. I was having issues with my proximity before, I replaced the digitizer and it repaired it. The ear piece was working fine. It's just now that its not. Thanks Everyone.
