has the screen been previously replaced? if so it sounds like the earpiece speaker was not correctly reinstalled.

If not, is the little earpiece speaker grille full of crud? you can't hear through crud, pick that mess out with a toothpick **CAREFULLY**

if still no solution, I'd suspect the front camera/proximity flex has failed, the earpiece speaker itself rarely fails unless you got water in it.
