It is not what you said it is how you said it, Jack. So what if you consider this forum (and the Internet) impersonal enough to rant at someone trying to help you. If you took the steps someone suggested already, why not express them in your original post? Adding a link to a thread is more than enough help from someone volunteering information. The onus is on you.
Good day. I hope VW can help you.
Okay, so I am also having this problem. And after reading through all the bickering in this thread, i have come to the conclusion that the only actual fix is taking the phone into Verizon?
Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
If you have no media sound unless you have a headset plugged in but you do still hear notification sounds, then the issue is software related. If you get no sound without plugging in your headset it is a hardware issue. For the first, I would do a factory reset. For the second, I would take it to Verizon.

Thanks for the info. Also, Its probably not a permanent fix, but plugging headphones in and out a few times fixed it for now.
Well, I'm sorry if I was too abrasive to anyone here. At the store they tried taking the battery out, which didn't work of course, but then they instructed me to do a factory reset. So I did that, and that also did not fix the problem. Verizon tech support over the phone said it was likely a defective headphone jack and right away they put me on a course to get a replacement phone. So I did that.
I do wonder though, is it a new phone that will come? The brochure that refers to this replacement routine says "certified like-new replacement" - What is a "like-new" ? It would be a real shame if I didn't get a new phone to replace this because I've only had the phone just over a month.
Certified-like new means that the phone was opened/used and returned and went back to QA inspection/testing at the factory and once it passed all of their checklists, was then stamped as ready to be put out to circulation once again. Sometimes it is indeed fixed and sometimes the problem resurfaces under regular use. They will not divulge what the original issue of the certified-like new was, or if it was just an *open box* phone that legally can no longer be sold as *NEW* but was never actually used by anyone. It also retains the original warranty unless otherwise noted. It is pot luck kinda of a deal so good luck with that.
BTW, almost all companies follow this Certifed-like new system. I know of one from personal experience that does not. Computer builder DSO. They replace any part with only NEW IN BOX (NIB) item of equal or greater value to the part being replaced: Digital Storm
I would have to agree that what you will be getting is a phone that was opened and returned within the 1st 30 days or one that had issues and they "fixed" the issues.
If it was a phone that was just released, you would have gotten a new replacement but since all they send is the phone without the battery and cover, they don't say that its new.

I am also having an issue where the phone rings and I answer it but there is no sound. The person calling doesn't hear anything and I can't hear them. I checked my settings and the phone is not on silent, the call volume is up to max, Bluetooth is off. The only way I can correct it is to reboot the phone. It started happening after the upgrade and now it happens every day. My husband has the same phone and he's not having this issue. It sounds like I should to a factory reset first and see if that works? (And I don't use headphones but I'm wondering if my problem is the same as this one).
