    Thread renamed and moved to the right section.
    Read my signature to know why.

    I've made a solution for broken Switch stuck to Silent position.

    You can sync an empty ringtone and use it when you want the phone to be silent.

    He's not jalbroken though.. so a software fix is no good at the moment.. needs hardware fix.

    you could open up your phone.. and see if its possible to to flick the silent switch on the actual hardware bit itself using a pin or something small and sharp..

    this happened a lot on psp's wifi switches... when dropped, it would break the little nobble on the pcb that the switch on the outer casing hooked on to.. but if you took the faceplate off you could slide it on with a pin then just resrew the faceplate on..

    it might work.. i'll have a look ..

    edit.. see this pic...


    the little noble higlighted in red circle..this is the silent switch, see the slight raised bit.. yours will probably be floating around in your phone somewhere..

    bust your phone open... use a pin to flick the remaining bit of the switch up..then re-assemble.. then as XianLi posted above, sync a silent ringtone to use when you want it on silent.... (thats a genius idea btw XianLi!!)

    google is your friend...

    http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/iPhone/Rear-Panel/105/4/

    a complete guide with hi res pictures.. just follow the steps upto page 8 where you get to the broken switch......

    don't be shy - give it a try...

    if you do strip it and it you have the funds.. it's about 25 for a complete new ribbon unit that has all the hardware controls.. just google iphone spares and you shall find someone who sells em..

    if not just flick the switch to volume on, re-assemble and use the silent ringtone option.

    good luck - hope you get it fixed.. cheers
