Hi there, I am a customer service representative for Sprint. We know longer off the Palm Treo 755 due to its many malfunctions. I myself bought one and had nothing but problems with it. When i would make or receive calls people couldnt hear me and i would repeatedly havve to push the speaker button. There were also numerous complaints about callers hearing an echo. My suggestion is to buy another phone.

SOURCE: Treo 755 not able to make calls

The only workarounds I've read about these issues is:

1. Plug in the headset again and pull it out crisply and see if that works. Another method I heard, is to stick a toothpick in there.

2. Using the OEM Treo mono headset, insert the jack fully into the socket, spin the jack in the socket 180-360 degrees and remove the jack with a quick jerk. If the socket is truly undamaged, this technique, often repeated, seems to enable the speaker.

3. Some report that the headphone jack adapters, 3.5 to 2.5mm, work for this as well, that has NOT been my experience.

4. VolumeCarePro will bypass the headset switch and is a software workaround.

5. Otherwise, the only way I've been able to 'resurrect' the speaker is by hard reset, and once it took two hard resets.

As a result, I do not use my headset jack on my Treo 755p at all any more.



Unfortunately, this is an area that Palm is aware of, but has done little to fix.

Buy a blutooth that is compatible. Research the Palm Treo website for the type you want then check EBay or similar for a better deal.

I can't hear anything when I call


I had this problem. It appears that the solder joints on the headset jack are rather weak. When they break, the phone thinks there is a headset inserted into the jack, even when there is not. This disables the phone's built in speaker and mic. The solution in my case was to either replace the phone or have it fixed under warranty/insurance.

No speaker no sound on my treo


I had to have my Treo swapped once already because of a problem with the headset jack. The same problem is happening now - the phone always thinks the headset is plugged in (even when it isn't). That results in phone ringing (unless on virbate / silent mode) but no audio through the speaker in the back, and no speakphone icon appearing.

Given the symptoms you describe I would go to your service provider and (hopefully) get support under warranty - very likely hardware related.

No sound when making calls


Yes, it's a hardware problem. I've seen it many time. The speakers on the Treos are flaky. Get a new phone under your insurance plan.

Is your call volume turned up? Use the side volume buttons to make sure the speaker volume is up high.

If the volume is high and you still can't hear anything, turn on speakerphone mode. Can you hear anything then?

Can you hear the dings and boops that the treo normally makes while navigating through the menus?

Treo 600 can't hear without headset


Try blowing hard on the spot where the headset plugs in. I have this same issue on my treo and a good burst of air will at times bring back the speaker/microphone.

Cannot hear incoming call or caller cannot hear me


First check and adjust call volume. It should set be optimal and secondly during a call adjust the microphone volume. If this is ok and the problem exsist then the microphone, speaker or some other hardware need to be replaced. Contact local hardware expert.
