This is most likely a Flex Cable #3 issue. Try a Reset, hold both Home and Power Buttons for about 15 seconds, let iPhone turn off itself and then it will restart. See it this helped. The next step would be to carefully open iPhone and reseat Flex Cable #3. When you do this, look to see if there is any damage to the Connector #3 on the Logic Board. Close up iPhone and see if it works. If not the next step would be to replace the Flex Cable #3. Try these steps before considering replacing the earpiece speaker itself, which had no involvement in the battery repair. (Check the light sensor function and proximity sensor function, if these are out it would confirm #3 problem and not earpiece speaker)

hi brad, you don't have an email address so I thought I'd put this comment on here hoping you'd see it.. i've noticed that you put good answers as comments, and I'd give you an upvote but can't! If you want more info from the asker then it's a comment. But if you're giving information then it's an answer. Your answers are good, and so are your comments. I'd like to be able to give credit where it's due..

all the best, Jen
