I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing issues with the iPhone 5. The iPhone 5 is definitely the latest and greatest, and in owning one myself I can say personally I love it! Now are you only having issues with the sound feature while playing the solitaire app? Or does this occur while utilizing other features on the device as well? Do you experiencing audio issues while making/receiving calls? I look forward to your response and to working together to getting your device concerns resolved.
