    Hello. No matter what sound plays on my phone, it only uses 1 speaker. I don't have any song on it, but I tried it with some youtube videos and there is only 1 speaker working. I tried covering the one that's playing and I can not hear very well while it's covered, plus my finger vibrates. When I cover the other one, nothing happenes. There is no difference in sound and my finger doesn't feel a thing. However, when I plug in the headphones(stock)...they both work.


    P.S. Where is the microphne located on the 3GS?

    Good. Exactly that thought came into my mind while writing the previous post. That's why I added P.S. Thanks.

    If the speaker hole is blocked, there is no sound. Sux when it's in the pocket. Have to be mindful that the phone is upside down. Design flaw.
    The camera also needs a flash.

    I'm getting it mine tomorrow. The hole on the left is the speaker and the other is the mic. It is not stereo..

    All blocked speaker holes don't have sound..
    And a flash would only work at max. 1 or 2 meters away so it's pretty much useless anyway..
