Okay what seems to have worked, in the end, was what someone else suggested in another thread .. I pulled the battery and waited about 10 minutes and then booted up the phone without the back on it (I have a touchstone charger and so have a special backplate for that charger). Now the sounds work fine, and I can test ringtones perfectly. However when I make a call I can barely hear the call, etc. I have the volume turned way up. Honestly this phone is too quiet anyway, which is why I had to download amplified ringtones. But the calls being too quiet is a major issue. I might have to take this phone in, although it was working perfectly before the update and I can't see how a new phone would fix what is clearly a software problem since it was induced by an upgrade to the OS.
