For some reason I can no longer hear calls into my Blackberry 8703. When I dial I see that the call connects, but I can't hear anything. The volume is turned to max. I've tried taking the battery out and re-booting - no luck. Text messages go out fine. the people on the other end of my call can see my caller ID, but can't hear me speaking either.
Did I do something wrong?

International call barring service key is 331. Try and check for barring status by entering *#331# It shall respond something like "Call barring / international outgoing / all calls on" (or off) If status is "on" you may want to deactivate barring by #331*code# where code is your key to supplementary service activation deactivation.
If it is still unsuccessful ask yourself: did anyone activate international call barring on your phone?
Barring services can be activated by subscriber as well as the telco. In the latter case you will not be able to deactivate the barring.

what is the exact error message/prompt that you hear when you try to make outgoing calls?
if you are a prepaid user, make sure that you have enough balance
if not, make sure that the call barring feature on the phone is deactivated, to check go to the settings of your phone, call settings, then call barring and make sure that outgoing call barring deactivated.
turn off the phone, remove battery and sim then wait for a few seconds then turn the phone back on, see if you can already make outgoing calls
Hi, you can use this instruction to pair your blue tooth with your cell phone:
Pair Your Blackberry with a Bluetooth Headset
Turn on Bluetooth headset and Blackberry hand-held.
Enable the Bluetooth radio by going to the options window and clicking on Bluetooth. Click on Enable Bluetooth in that window.
Add your Bluetooth headset to your Blackberry by clicking on Add Device in the Bluetooth window.
Find and select the name of your Bluetooth headset from the list that appears. The Blackberry will search for all Bluetooth devices within range, so other devices might show up on the list.
Click Activate Bluetooth device if you receive a call and the Bluetooth headset does not pick up automatically.
Use your Bluetooth Headset with your Blackberry
Make sure the Bluetooth radio on your Blackberry is turned on before you try to use your Bluetooth headset.
Use the voice-dial feature to call contacts if your headset has that capability. Not all headsets support voice dialing, but more of the newer models do.
Press the on/off button on your headset to end a call or use the end button on the handheld.
Tips & Warnings
Pair your Blackberry with any Bluetooth-enabled device using the same steps as those for connecting a Bluetooth headset.
Remove your Bluetooth headset from the list of paired devices on your Blackberry by selecting and clicking on Delete Device in the Bluetooth window.
Configure your Blackberry to connect to a paired Bluetooth headset without asking for authorization in the Bluetooth Device Properties window. That will allow your headset to automatically reconnect even if you take it out of range temporarily.
Only configure a Bluetooth headset to your Blackberry once. Once you configure the pairing between the two devices, the settings are saved and you do not have to repeat the processes each time you use it.
Turn off the Bluetooth radio on your Blackberry when not in use for security reasons.
Adjust volume on your headset or hand-held to a comfortable level. Excess volume from in-the-ear headsets can cause hearing damage.
Contact your cellular service provider and ask for Tech Support. Tell them what problem you have. Ask if they will walk you through the directions to perform a 'Hard Re-Set' on your phone. (This is something that needs to be done while they can talk to you.)
If this doesn't work, ask them for assistance in getting you a new phone. They'll be glad to help.
While you're in the call, use the volume buttons on the right hand side of the Tour to turn up the volume.
If you still can't hear, you might want to try using the speakerphone -- it's louder. The speakerphone button is the same as the dollar sign ($) button, just press it during a call to activate the speakerphone.
If the volume button makes your outgoing call sound better, but then the next time you make a call the volume drops again, go into the phone's sound settings (Home folder > Options folder > Phone Options > General Options) and under Default Call Volume, change it to a higher number, or to Previous.
