    Since there is physical damage I'd say your best bet is to take it to the apple store and se if they can fix it

    You could take it to another repair place like Verizon or best buy unless you can't

    Best Buy can't repair it even if you paid them. They require that you have Geek Squad Protection to work on your phone. And even with that they just replace the phone through the mail.

    Very true. I would check to see if you can't find a local shop to do it. It sounds to me like the speaker cables are damaged. It would not be an incredibly hard fix if he were to do it himself

    EDIT: Also, I didn't mean to sound like a dick in my first post.

    Understand.

    Also while it is not as safe you could find an independent phone repair person but I'd be careful if you chose that path
