    i have the same problem the little headset sign is on my phone and i can't turn it off.

    I have the same problem. Without any warning, the headset icon showed up at the very top of the display, and stayed there. The mike and speaker are disabled because the phone thinks there is a headset attached. My temporary fix was to use the hands-free speaker phone option. I switched just by pushing the upper right corner button. On the screen it says "loudsp." in the bottom right corner.



    I called Nokia on this and they were baffled, and my cell service provider was clueless and tried everything for 45 minutes while I patiently followed orders. I hope my calls to the provider are free. Nokia said its a warrantee issue and I'll have to return the phone for repair. They also asked if I had tried to use a non-Nokia bluetooth headset. I used the one that my provider bundled with the phone. Seems like brand protectionism to me.

    The same problem is happening with my phone and I have tried both suggestions as posted, including removing the battery and replacing it as well as deleting some items and freeing up space and the problem still persists. :(

The solution for me was simple.I removeed the battery,the sim card as suggested but still no joy.So I thought 'this thing thinks I have plugged in the headphones' As I don't have any I took a brush and cleaned the battery,the sim card and the charging port. If in doubt brush every orifice and cleanse it from dust. Check your charger and clean that also. Hey prest, it worked for me!

I have seen this problem numerous times and each time it actually has worked, so just remove the battery from the back and put it in again. Somehow it magically disappears and the phone seems to work again. The battery trick works with a lot of stuff =)

I vacumned out the slot with a shop vac, turned off the phone, sprayed it with electric part cleaner (available at auto parts store), let it dry, turned it on, and the icon is gone.

I had the same problem! It was soooo stupid! No one could help me but I figured it all out on my own. You probably used up all your memory. Try deleting some stuff and it will work again!

I was having the same problem with the headset icon and had to use loudspeaker as my ear set until myfriend who has the same phone figured out how to fix it. It worked for me so maybe if you try it it might work for you... Go to settings than to enhancements.. it will come up as a choice for headse, tty/tdd, charger, and hearing aid... choose headset.... than pick default profile... it will have a list of seven profiles and you pick which one you want ..... if you choose current profile that will keep you in the headset profile... so choose something besides current profile... thats how i fixed mine.... good luck

I stopped at an ATT store, and this was the fix she did:
Settings> Enhancements > Headset > for Default Profile, choose CURRENT PROFILE.
Somehow the phone had jumped to the "outdoor" setting. Not sure why. Hope this helps someone. Lots of the suggestions here are great - I tried them all with no luck. This or another site where someone said their fix was rolling the phone gently down a flight of stairs was hysterical.... made my day (didn't fix my phone though). Thanks to all.

How to connet bluetooth on nokia 5230


Bluetooth is a wireless technology that allows devices to communicate via high-frequency radio signals. Bluetooth headphones are just one of the many devices designed to work with portable music devices as well as ordinary phones. With Bluetooth headphones, you can listen to music as well as make and receive calls--all from the same device. Connecting them is a snap.

1
  • Turn on your cell phone. Enable Bluetooth by accessing your phone's general or network settings. Your phone will search for Bluetooth signals in the area--they are usually denoted by a small icon displayed on the screen. If you don't know how to turn on Bluetooth or aren't sure whether your phone supports Bluetooth technology, refer to your phone's user guide.

  • 2

    Turn on your Bluetooth headphones while near your cell phone. Turning on a Bluetooth-enabled device will usually put it in pairing mode, meaning it is actively searching for a device to connect to. Since your phone also is actively searching for a Bluetooth device, it should find it right away and prompt you to connect to it. It may ask for a password--refer to your headset's user manual for the default password and how to change it.

  • 3

    Test your connection. Once your headset is paired, the phone will usually start sending calls and audio to it without any additional configuration. Some phones may prompt you and ask which device to use. Try making calls and/or playing music. If you hear music from only one ear, your phone may not support stereo Bluetooth. If you don't hear anything, re-pair the headphones. Power off your phone and headphones, then turn them back on and repeat steps 1 and 2.

    How to remove headphone icon from the display


    Hi,

    I have encountered with the same problem with my Nokia 6630. This may happen if somehow your phone is damaged by water or your cell is experiancing a extermly humid environment. So do one of the following:

    1. Switch off your cell. Remove battery and put it some time in direct sun light. If possible your headset jack facking sun face. You can also use your table lamp. Just bend it to cover phone.
    2. You can also use your hair drier. Just blow the hot air towards your phone.

    Headset icon on 6085


    I trawled the net looking for answers. Some suggestions were, take out battery and sim for a few minutes, restore factory settings, clean connections... someone even suggested you put it on the washing machine while it was in use! I tried all of the above without success (yes, even the washing machine one). I rang the Nokia helpline and all they offered was the suggestions above and to send it in to be fixed. I was answering the phone with the headset in, just by chance, after a day or so I removed the headset and voila! problem had solved itself, icon was removed. It did come back when someone made me a call but I put the headset in for a few minutes then took it out and the icon went away. Hope this helps :)

    Headset icon


    Here's how I fixed the damn headset thang on my Nokia.

    Take out the SIM card and start the phone *WITHOUT* the SIM card.
    Wait until the phone's screen says, "insert SIM card."
    Wait a minute, then re-insert the SIM card, and re-start the phone.
    Voila, the horrid headset symbol is gone (I hope).
    Do it a few times if it doesn't take the first time (although, it did on mine).

    Hope this works for you, because hell, that headset setting is a real beyatch when you *don't* want it. ;)
