    • You can follow this steps: settings > sound > volume. Once your in that setting you can adjust the volume for music, ringtones and notifications.

      Or Restart the device.

      Or Insert your headphones into the headphone jack then take them out. Continue to do this for a couple of minutes as sometimes the phone tricks its self into thinking its in headphone mode. Also by doing this step you are likely to dislodge any dust or dirt build up that also may be causing this issue.

      And last, software update, to check go into settings > about device > software update > check for updates. Download the most recent update for your phone if there is one. Depending on your carrier and device different updates will be released at various times.
