Hello Ryan,

A coupe of things. In my experience I've found mic and speaker issues to be either a software issue or dirt and debris in the mic or speaker ports (the grill in the screen). You should be able to see light through it. Outside of that you have done most everything you can do. Recheck the camera flex connection to the board, one hair can cause a problem

Good luck,

Holger

Hi Ryan,

Did you use a new front camera flex? If so, you should try using the cable from another iPhone 5C, and make sure the proximity sensor isn't getting caught up underneath. Then of course, restart the device.

There are issues that can occur on the logic board, but they are very rare, at least from what I have encountered.

i'm having the same problem with the ear speaker not working after screen replacement on my wife's 5c. I actually swapped out camera/speaker and flex cables from another 5C that i knew worked and it still wouldn't work. Right now my wife just has to use her speakerphone all the time. Any more ideas on what to do here? When you say software problem, what can be done here? I read on another site where it might work after wiping the phone and restoring. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thank you ALL!!!
