Answer to: Can't hear caller over ear speaker after screen replacementGreat Jason, nice to see that the cleaning worked for you. I finally managed to fix my problem as well, however the cleaning didn't help. It took me almost 4 months to understand what was wrong. I'll explain the best i can. This was my problem and solution: The prongs underneath the actual earpiece is only supposed to touch the copper plates, not actually that much force, if they are pushed too hard, it will not work. So i got an original screen and found that when i disassembled it there were two very very small plastic squares with hole in them(for the screws), and is working to keep a good distance for the screws(so they are not screwed all the way into the bottom).

Answer to: Can't hear caller over ear speaker after screen replacementFrank, i don't know how it went for Alex. I've changed both the earpiece (speaker), also the flex cable for the sensor/front camera. "iPhone 5 Front Camera and Sensor Cable Due to the copper plates was unforunate ripped from the flex cable(very easy to do), i've installed the new cable as well as a new speaker and still no progress. I begin to wonder if it may be that it is some dust or fat on the surface of the connector or the copperplates or the spiral contacts, i will try to clean it. But i'm doubtful this will help. Also there is no success when trying to pinch the phone right near the speaker when placing a call(read in some forum that it could work due to a glitch in the connection). Too bad nobody seems to have a real solution or answer for this problem even though a lot of people are experiencing the same problem. This happend to me when i changed the screen so maybe a bad screen? Although everything else are working fine!
