RadioShach Cat No. 43-8978 Phone (Today NexxTech - The Source CC)
It is hard to diagnose an issue without having the phone in front of me. It can be namy things. These are probably made in CHina or overseas using cheap components.
What I would first suspect, is frayed wires inside the coiled cord. You can't see them broken, because they are covered up. It sould be the switch where the ophone hangs up. Many components are hot glued in place, dumb idea.
If you can hear the other person even parely it shows that there is an issue with a good connection. Over time, wires flex, and can break inside the cord. Switches might get out of place, get loose due to the hot glue coming off. Switches can also get dirty and must have contact cleanier sprayed inside the switch.
What I can suggest, is that you make a call, then when listening, wiggle the whole coiled cord wire back and forth, up and down, all directions. IF there is a momentary time when you can hear loudly, then you have found your problem. If the phone was in front of me, I could make some tests, but it is impossible to diagnose over the internet.
There may be a member of an antique telephone collectors forum around your area. I know the phone is not antique, but they will have the ability to test the phone locally.
