Why can't I hear calls?

After installing a new battery on my iPhone 3G everything works great, except that I can only hear calls on speakerphone or with the headphones. I had some difficulty getting ribbon #3 to slide back into place, but think I got it in eventually. If it is not seated right would that cause this problem, or is it another connection, or something else entirely?

Thanks on advance!
