    Did you check your settings and make sure that the sounds you mentioned are enabled?

    yeh everything is...its weird. My gba emulator doesnt work with sound either. Can it be involved with the jailbreak? Thats the reason I want to restore it. To see if it will fix it.

    You can try a restore to 3.0 if you think that is the problem. You'll need to download the 3.0 software and restore to that; then use RedSn0w to JB it again.

    How bad is the silent button? If it is stuck in silent mode you can hear the music from the speakers but nothing else. Before you get too far into the restore I would look at the silent button a little more; I have seen them break before.

    If it is still under warranty Apple will replace it for you (will probably just give you a refurbished iPhone). The downside of that is your new phone will probably have 3.1 installed (= no unlock).

    The switch itself can be replaced. I am assuming there is a guide out there and there is a bit of work involved but you could replace the button yourself.

    After looking a bit more I am fairly certain that is you problem. Just saw this while looking up a guide: "the iPhone will still sound alarms, play iPod music, and allow apps like games to make sounds even when the phone is set to silent". I think your switch is stuck on silent, might be able to play with it and get it back to normal but your switch is more than likely broken.
