    The only sound I get out this thing, is if I go to Settings, and move the sound volume slide bar. Sound is not locked. It can be changed with the rocker switch. I'm sorry if this has been done earlier. I tried searching for info but got none. Please help!

    The symtoms you discribe do indeed sound like the mute slider switch, or its muted, as that's exactly the effect you get. some operation sounds work but not the main sound, but you say you have checked this.

    As you can hear some sounds this rules out there being a problem with the earphone jack. It certainly sounds like you have a setting somewhere muting it.
    Make sure bluetooth too is disabled in case somethings got screwed up there.
    I doubt it will make much difference in this instance, but when desperate, if your've not already done it. Always worth doing a none destrucive reboot, by hold down the Home and on/off buttons at the same time... you never know.. Hope you sort it out... let us know what it was.

    Or the mute is selected in the quick launch bar.Double press home,scroll to the left and check if it is not muted

    Thank You both. You gave me the solution. I do get sound from the headphones. However, no sound without. The problem I believe was from using that stupid stylus my daughter got me, that has a plastic pin that you put in the headphone jack. So, anyone have an idea of what I can do? Do I need to take it down and have a new jack installed?

    Thanks again

    Well, I tried the reboot, but held it in too long. My daughter came over and properly rebooted it, and Bazinga! I now have sound back. Thanks guys for the cure for the problem. If only I wasn't so stupid I'd have had it taken care of earlier.

    UPDATE!

    I have sound when playing music, or the radio app. But from none of the other apps such as games. I checked the settings in the games and they are all set with volume in the middle. WTF?

    DOUBLE UPDATE!

    I got it fixed. I finally found the multi-tasking bar, and I also turned off everything to the cloud, as I don't use it.

    A Big Thanks to all who helped. I really appreciate it!

    Change the switch setting from rotation lock to mute in general settings

    Then toggle mute on and off from the physical switch.

    Then test again.

    Works on select sound problems resulting from upgrade to ios5.

    Good luck

    DOUBLE UPDATE

    Thanks to all,
    I got it fixed. I believe the problem was in the Muti-task bar. I finally found that, and also, I shut off all the stuff dealing with the cloud, as I don't use it. I also changed the lock rotation to Mute. I think that's what really fixed it.

    A Big Thanks to all that helped!
