Hi All,

This is my first post here. I searched, but found no references to this issue. My iPhone 4 is about 10 days old. I am running 4.2.1. I just noticed that the built in camera app does not record any audio on videos. This seems to be a known issue on the Apple support forum, but no one has found a good solution. I was wondering if there is any wisdom to be had over here.

Interestingly, voice memos record fine, all other audio functions are great, and Quik Vid Pro records both video and audio just fine. This would point to a software issue in the standard camera app would it not?

Any suggestions? I guess I'll do a restore, although i doubt it will help.

I've seen this a few times before. It's only the video recorder that doesn't record sound as you said. For some a restore did work, others took their phones back to apple and got a replacement...

I'm restoring now - what a pain - so we'll see. Otherwise I will be at the nearest Apple Store - 320 miles from here, the week after Christmas, so I can take care of it then.
Restore didn't do anything, so I guess it's on to Apple support.
