    I just got this phone two days ago, I haven't dropped it and it was working earlier today. Can someone please tell me how to fix this? I have tried turning off and back on, taking the battery out, and have checked all of my settings and it still doesn't work.

    Hi TaylezS3 and welcome to the forums!

    If the volume button fails to control the volume and your Settings --> Sound --> Volume are turned up and there is STILL no sound, then I am thinking 3 things: either Silent Mode is on (you'll see that in Settings --> Sound); there is either an app you downloaded that is overriding the system settings for sound control; OR it's a hardware issue that needs warranty work. I can't think off hand of anything else it could be.

    You might want to back up your data (pictures, videos, music, movies) to a PC and try a factory reset. It will delete user data, but may restore your volume as the operating system will start over again from scratch.

    Hope this helps :)

    Thank you. The factory reset didn't work, so I'll go to the store and explain my issue. Hopefully the next S3 I get won't have this problem.

    I know we'll see you back soon and hope they get you up & running in no time. One thing we don't like at Android Forums is an Android device that doesn't work right... :eek:
