    Rear Speaker Issue with ICS

    Ever since I got the ICS update on my Maxx, I've had nothing but problems with the rear speaker working. I did a clean install of ICS. So, I thought I had a hardware issue with the speaker. I sent the phone back and got a refurb Maxx a few months ago. That phone came with ICS installed. I did a factory reset before I even used it. After about 24 hours of use, the rear speaker just stops working. A restart fixes it for another 24-ish hours. I've done several simulated battery pulls and a factory data reset. Nothing fixes it. To date, I have not even rooted this phone.

    This same speaker issue is with mine, my woman's, and a guy I work with that has a Maxx. It's only been going on since the ICS update. Anyone know of a fix? It's getting real annoying.

    Sadly I haven't heard much about this type of problem. I've looked around on the net briefly and haven't been able to come up with much of anything. Most that have had a similar issues have done factory data resets to fix, but if this is your 3rd one doign it, I'm not sure what the answer would be. Could it be an app that for some reason is muting the speaker?



    I do hope that the issue is found... it isn't easy dealing with a device that isn't working properly.

    This is my second device that's doing it. And two other people having the same issue with theirs. I use smart actions at work and sleep time, but the other two people don't use it at all. I've tried wiping data, but that didn't help.

    What apps do you have installed? I find it hard to believe that two phones are doing the exact same thing without a common app being used. Do you and the other people you mentioned all use any of the same apps?

    Re: Rear Speaker Issue with ICS

    Just did another FDR last night. We'll see if that fixes it.

    I am having a similar problem. A restart did fix the problem. Has anyone found a permanent solution.

    So far, the factory data reset is working. It's only been about 24 hours. I'll report back in a few days on it.

    Re: Rear Speaker Issue with ICS

    Actually I'm on my second Maxx right now the first had GPS problems.

    Both had speaker issues but only occasionally. Sometimes there is just NO sound. Toggling the Bluetooth works at times. Other times I just restart the phone.... And everything is working again, with no problems.

    I've never had any issues with the rear speaker. The FDR should fix it, but let us know.
