    There are two sound settings: one is the sounds the phone makes such as alerts, ringtones, etc. The other is for media, which includes music, movies, etc. Just because your phone volume is all the way up, it doesn't mean your media one is as well. When the song starts playing, hit the "+" key on the phone and see if the slider was all the way off the whole time.

    That should fix it. I can't see it being anything else.

    Do your ringtones and alerts work?

    What format is the song?

    Are you sure the music is playing (little time line moving and all that)?

    Have you tried adjusting the volume while the music is playing?

    Are you using the media player that came with the phone?

    What format is your music in?

    Have you tried using headphones?

    go to aplayer and make sure there isn't a mute or independent volume there maybe?

    tech support i doubt will be able to help you but give it a shot.

    Try restarting the phone and see if it does anything.

    You also may want to plug in and unplug something from the headphone jack and see if that changes anything. That used to happen to me on another phone, kind of like getting the Alt or control keys stuck on a keyboard.

    If none of that works, try retransferring a song or two to see if it helps.

    You could also try the youtube app and see if you can get sound out of that.

    silent mode reads off in the options menu but if you hold down the power button it says silent mode is on..some kind of processing error i guess just happened a few hours ago...have to call verizon to do hard reset on the phone and hopefully that will work.
