internal speaker (ear speaker, not speakerphone) randomly stopped working.
Well first off, I'll tell you there is no water damage or dropping of this phone. Its been workin like a champ up until tonight.. received a call and i couldn't hear anything, speakerphone works as normal, but the ear speaker does not. Anyone care to shed some light on how this could randomly happen w/o dropping or water damage?? Looks like i've got to change the whole midplate now.. which makes me extremely unhappy.

8900 midplate is a motherfather to deal with, as unlike the 9000, it's barely there.
I've found that audio components in RIM devices tend to frack off rather often... but not in my personal use. Curious. More investigation needed. To ebay for corpsephones.
midplate fixed the problem. I dont know what happened.. the only thing i can guess is the contacts from the midplate to the ear speaker messed up somehow.. either way oem speaker is still in place, midplate replaced and it works like a charm. also the midplate was so simple.. took 5 minutes..
