I snagged a Pre 3 at the end of September. It worked perfectly until mid-November when the earpiece speaker just stopped working. It doesn't look like the headphone jack is mis-detecting, it really does seem like the earpiece speaker is broken. (The bundled diagnostics seem to think that it is sending to the earpiece speaker, but there is no sound.)
Speakerphone, headsets, bluetooth all work. I'm pretty sure it's hardware.
Does anyone here have any suggestions? I'd be interested in buying a broken Pre3 to try a repair if anyone has one for sale.
Any hints would be greatly appreciated. I bought another phone but really miss webOS.
