BRING IT TO THE APPLE STORE!
I had the same problem a few months ago with a 4s. My headphone jack kept thinking i had headphones in or something. Anyways I took it to the apple store. and they just swapped it out for a new phone!!!
I dont own an iphone and I never will. I have a LG..which is fucking shit as well.
This happened to me when I first got my iphone 5. It wasnt working for a full day, brought it into the Apple store and for whatever reason, it just started working again. I didnt touch or do anything to make it work again.
Ive had my phone for about 5 months now. That issue has never come up again. Weird.
O M G I finally found a solution. It's not a total fix because the vibrate switch on the side no longer works. But at least the audio is back.
In case anyone else runs into this ...
Re: iphone not ringing just vibrating

Update to IOS 6 seems to have switched the mute key and volume ringers off completely
go to. this worked for my Iphone 4
Assistive touch switch on.
my iphone on the side is showing mute not on, using the assistive touch ( the white button that appears on your home screen, go to device and swithc the mute key to the opposite. on my phone mute on (bell with cross through it, opposite to phone), my phone now rings.
yup utopian, you have no idea.
have you checked the vibrate mode rocker
Update it, dunk it in water
This would never happen on any other phone than a piece of shit plastic shiny toy like Apple makes.

my phone never rings...
I had some issues with sound but not that drastic, occasionally when a new notification came in, the sound would go down roughly by half (which is normal) but then it wouldn't go back up again. Only with a new notification. Had to store a timer of 1s in Due just to restore my sound to normal again..
But your problem looks worse. Go to a Apple/repair store.
my "refurbished" 4 that a bought and arrived at my door with a shattered screen and it did that, audio in the headphones worked, but not the speakers, when I replaced the screen myself it went away, so in my case it could have been a just loose connection.
My 4 has been like this for a good while.
Audio works when headphones are plugged in.
Back when it first started to happen I read that it might have something to do with the headphone jack – a short of sorts – that makes the phone act as if headphones are always plugged in. I keep my phone on silent anyway so I never really looked into it much more. I think there were supposed to be ways to clean it, though. Could be worth looking into.
my 4 has been acting up since installing iOS 7 — not sending txts, not loading txts i've had stored for awhile.
resetting fixed it, or force closing & reopening apps.
Both of those sounds can be turned on and adjusted in the "Settings."
All I can say is that my iphone 4 stopped being able to use the speakerphone after about a year so I dumped it for $150 and got the iphone 5 which also stopped working as soon as I crossed east of the mississippi but they actually gave me a full replacement and it seems great now. I would recommend you just get a new phone and get out of the iphone 4 if you have time.
