Question about Motorola Mobility V551

1 Answer

Can't hear those that call me or when I call others. Can't hear touchtones either.

When I make a call and the phone shows connected, I can't hear. The only way I can hear is to use the speaker option. I cannot hear the touchtone when dialing either. Did I turn something off on my phone. I can hear it ring and the volumes is turned up all the way.

This happened to my phone and I found that if I pushed in the right spot (just about the bottom of the motorola circle, bottom meaning towards the hinge) I could get the sound to come back in. Best way to test this that I found was to call voicemail and push around to find the right spot.

When i make or get call I can hear them but they can't hear me. I get this yellow swiggly object on my screen.


There is some problem with your phone mic only.please use your headset to check it.Connect your headset and answer phone with your headset.If the person don other side hear you then the problem is with the mic only.Please take the mobile to NOKIA CARE centre and they will repair the mic.

The yellow colour swiggly object which comes next to the battery bar is nothing unusual.It shows that your call is been connected with the person on other side.This symbol will not appear when the other person's phone is ringing,When the person picks up the phone this yellow colour symbol will apear.]

Thank You

To take the message from the outside,you have to press **,the system disconect you in place to ask for your mailbox # and password.

Are you calling from a cellphone? Not all cellphones send long enough touchtones for voicemail systems to recognize. Try calling in from a landline to test. Check cellphone user guide for info on increasing touchtone length of time.

Ge telphone and answering machine

Are all phones on your line having this issue? Is it a GE system with expandable (multiple) phone handsets? Make sure you have touchtone service with your local phone company. If you are getting a dial tone but can't break dial tone when you press a button; do you hear the touch tone? If so, it may be the phone comany line. Provide as much detail as possible such as were the phomes working at first but then stopped or never worked at all.

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.
Good lcuk.
