Whilst at the home screen press (don't hold) the power button and select general on the menu that appears.

On some phones you can hold down the # key whilst on the home screen to switch between silent and general.

You can also find an option called "profiles" in the settings, this will let you switch.

Which phone do you have?

So if someone calls you can hear and speak to them but if you call them you can't hear them?

It does look that way, probably a hardware failure.

Take it to a nokia care point and ask them to inspect it for you. They may be able to repair it.
