    No sound from the speaker, just randomly happened. Rebooting doesn't work. I have not rooted the phone.

    Any suggestions?

    This happened to me too. However, I heard it starting to distort/fizzle out while I talking on speaker phone. I didnt even realize that the input beeps and clicks were silent until then. I restarted and tried doing a call again and it seemed to come back on after a few seconds of silence.

    My phone is rooted, has busybox, RyanZA's one click lag fix, and I enabled sideloading by database editing.

    What is the status of your phone now? What apps have you installed? Anything in relation to audio or music?

    The only thing I do in relation to music is listen to pandora once in awhile. I don't have any media files. My phone has been lagging pretty badly lately which has been annoying. I don't have too many apps. Shazam, pandora, battery indicator, juice defender, atk, and a few small games and stuff.

    I haven't done anything to side load apps or anything to change stock ui.

    Hey Rocko20,

    Any update on your speaker issue? Have you gotten it to come back on or have you taken it back for an exchange?

    Try this:

    Remove the battery from the phone and, with your index finger, aggressively tap 1 time on the speaker grill. Reboot the phone and let me know how it goes.

    I have the speaker phone issue too. One day I just noticed, zero sound. No fizzle, no on again off again. I called ATT and Samsung. Samsung offers a 2 day ship, 2 day fix, 2 day ship scenario with the original Mfr warranty date. ATT offers 0 down time, refurbed phone with the original mfr warranty date. I'm annoyed that a refurb doesn't have it's own warranty date. Why do we buy $200 phones that aren't even lasting a year now?
    I have pulled the battery, done a factory reset, pulled the SIM, pulled the SD....it must be hardware.

    I've been also having speaker problem issues as well. Whenever it goes off, I tap on the back of the phone where the speaker is, and it comes back on, def a hardware problem :( it just started doing this is last week.

    Great! Mine started doing this too. Very frustrating to miss calls. Pulling the battery and restarting only makes the speaker work for awhile...seems less and less. This phone was too expensive! It isn't even a year old yet!!

    this is common problem with this phone regardless if rooted/ROM/non rooted. If your phone is under warranty (1 year) and your using a ROM, flash back to stock, ATT will replace it for you no issues (i did this monday). But make sure you back up all your stuff. they WONT back up DATA only contacts, so be sure you use titanium backup. And if u already have a stock rom. just take it to ATT youll be set.

    peep this guys website, hell replace the speaker for you CHEAP AS HELL!
