Increase the phone volume. You'll get a ding for missed call from the PDA volume side, but the phone volume controls the ringer volumes and voice features... Access it from the buttons on the side or with settings menu.
If the volume is already maxxed, try updating the firmware on the device. You'll need to have the phone attached to a PC via USB cable, download and run the package. It'll wipe out your address book and other data on the phone though so make sure you have this backed up or can replace it.
Good luck :)
I experienced the same problem while traveling this weekend. The green phone button and anything associated to the phone all of a sudden stopped working. No call out and none in. I hotsync'd and also did a "hard reset" except I said yes and then went in and hotsync'd again. Phone now works again and all data is back
Taking the battery out to switch your phone ON/Off can cause serious problems. -------------------------------------------
To receive calls, your phone must be on.
This is different from having only the screen turned on (see Turning your phone on). When your phone is off, your calls go to voicemail. To see a picture of the person calling you!
Learn how to assign a caller ID picture in Assigning a caller ID ringtone. If music is playing when a call arrives, the smartphone rings softly. You can answer the phone as you normally would. The audio pauses during your call. To answer a call, do one of the following:
• Press Phone/Send .
• Press Answer (left action key).
• If the headset is attached, press the headset button.
To ignore a call and send it to voicemail, press Menu (right action key) and
select Ignore or press the Power/End key. -------------------------------------------
Waking up the screen and turning it off. Wake up the screen and leave the phone turned off when you want to use only the organizer features of your smartphone, for example, when you’re on a plane and want to look at your calendar. You can also turn off your smartphone’s screen without turning off your smartphone’s wireless features. You can turn your screen on and off by pressing Power/End.
I think your phone is going into to keyguard mode. Push the Red power button on the top right of the keyboard. Should come up with a keyguard lock screen at the botton of the screen. Push the center button on the 5-way navigation and you phone should function normally until it goes into to keyguard again. You will find the settings under preferences to either turn keyguard off or to adjust the time on it.
Ok, I thikn I fixed it, but it is kinda dumb. Maybe this will help you.
Call your phone from another phone. While the phone is ringing press
the Volume Up Button on the left side of your Treo. Now look to make
sure that both of the Volume Mixer buttons are turned up. For some
reason the system sounds were turned all the way up, but the ringer
volume was turned all the way down. The only place that I know to make
the change to the ringer volume is pressing the rocker switch while the
phone is ringing. Let me know if that helps
The 650 seems to have a delicate headphone/mic jack. Dropping the phone, even gently, seems mess up that jack. I returned my first treo 650 as defective, and got a new one. The same thing happened to my new 650 after I simply compressed the phone in my breast coat pocket by holding my mail against my chest.
I can't get a new one because the replacement treo comes with no warranty of any kind. :(
My advice would be to find a PDA/phone repair service to repair the jack or diagnose the problem if it turns out not to be the jack.
