Problem: On iPhone, low ear-speaker/ earpiece volume during phone call even when volume is set to maximum.

Caused After: Sometimes after iOS upgrade or when something falls into the ear-phone cavity.

Devices: iPhone 3G, iPhone 4, iPhone 5, iPhone 6 (all variants).

Solution: As strange as it may sound, simply suck the earpiece/ ear-speaker cavity as hard as possible.

How it works: Possibly the earpiece moves back into right position.

      same thing, thought i was going deaf…
      used the soft corner of an old businesscard and the earpiece was covered in fine white gunk, so scraped it off and cleaned it with a screen cleaner cloth (alcohol i think), back to normal and nice and loud again.
