    I'm having another problem since the ICS update. My sound does not always work. I will go to play a video on YouTube etc. and no sound. I always check to see if the sound is actually on and it is. I did a factory reset already and cleared the phones cache. I also updated to the .215 leak and still same problems. The only way i have found to get the sound working is to turn the phone off then back on. It's happening more often and getting really annoying. Just wondered if anyone else has the same problem.

    I had seen that problem happen a few times on my phone when I first went to ICS, honestly I have not tested it since I went to .215. You are not alone though, it is a known issue with ICS.

    You have to make sure your phone is not on silent and it will work

    If the phone was on silent then it would not work upon reboot, that is not the problem here many people have documented experiencing the same thing.

    I myself have an issue that's strange... if I'm viewing gtalk, I will get a very faint notification, if I'm not viewing it, I will get a loud notification... odd. I've done everything to remedy it... no luck.

    It did it on 211, does it on 215.

    Also.. I found a way to jump start your sound, download speaker cleaner and run it, it will sometimes get things going.

    Like I said already, I've done that.

    I didn't realize until today that it also affects my ringer. I kept getting text today but never heard them because sound was not working, and yes the sound was on and turned all the way up. I sure hope it does not cause any alarm problems.

    I will try the sound cleaner thing that was mentioned on here. Thanks.

    No problem, but it also held sometimes to go Into system settings, sound, volumes, and adjust the notification volume.. it will sometime help to get it functioning..

    I had some sound problems, aftera hard reset they were fixed, however my problems were a bit different. When streaming music, if i got a text msg it would turn my sound down 90%, i would have to send myself a google voice SMS to fix it lol.

    I have ran into the same exact problem. I've been running .232 for about a week now, and this has been the first issue that I've had. I flashed the AXIOMBeam build over it, and as I write this post I have no sound. I'm disappointed because it has been running flawlessly since I got the .232. Idk...

    I've been having the same problem. I'm not sure if it happens when the screen turns off or what. To get it to work I exit the app i'm trying to use and just raise or lower the volume with the buttons on the phone and it works.

    I was going to try a reset but I really didn't want to download and set everything up again and since you said it didn't work I wont even bother. Hopefully an update will come and fix it.

    No sound issue

    I have the same problem after ICS upgrade.
    However, if I open youtube or any video files at least once everyday, I don't have the problem. But if i open any video file two or more days later, I have no sound (not always though).
    At first I just power cycled to get sound back. Today, I just exited youtube, and turned the volume button up and down, and the sound came back.
    I hope future ICS update solve this issue.

    I had the same problem. Let the battery drain and the phone shut down...like the ole pull the battery trick. Plugged it back in, recharged and the sound worked. Nothing like a hightech solution.

    I posted on this thread a couple weeks back when I was on the .232 leak about experiencing this sound issue. I've made from .232 to .235 and then to .238, and the problem has persisted. I REALLY hope they have this worked out by the time the OTA comes out...IF it ever comes out that is.

    I also have intermittent sound issues, no alerts and sometimes no calls. Today I had no gps voice after to ally resolving 2 voices.
    I went into text to voice settings and made svox speak the sample and the maps worked.

    I was concerned last night as I had to take daughter to airport and sound was not working on my podcast. Had to restart phone and play with it. As a back up I had second alarm set for 5am but that was a droid bionic with gngbread

    Will follow thread and wait for fix.
