Probably hardware related. Did you recently download anything to it? Try resetting the hand held unit.

When i recieve or make a call i can not hear anything?


1. Take the battery out to reset/reboot.
2. Once it powers up, plug a wired headset into it.
If you can hear through the headset fine -but not thru the ear speaker, well then its the ear speaker that has gone bad. (Hardware problem.. if its less than a year old or u have cell phone insurance, call your cell company and see if they will replace that under warranty)
You could also try speakerphone and see if that works.. if the ear speaker goes out - maybe the loud speaker will still work.

I can't hear out of my handset for voice calls. PPlcan hear me fine but it sounds like they are whispering. I was having no problems until tonight. Speaker phone is working fine. What can I do to fix it?


You need to open up your phone and clean both the actual ear speaker and the two small pin holes on the cover with 91% or higher alcohol. If that doesn't solve the problem then need to replace your ear speaker.

My callers can't hear me.


Hopefully this will works for your models because it seems to work for my Blackberry Curve 8330 Smartphone.

The problem is a well known bug in the device OS.

It occurs when certain types of audio files (like music) are interrupted. The speaker is not released correctly.

The work around is to just activate Voice Activated Dialing (the service that allows you to 'tell' the phone to do something, like call someone.) That will force the speaker free, allowing you to continue your call. Starting up the Voice Notes Recorder will also sometimes work.

The culprit is non-BlackBerry audio file. You can help prevent the problem from occurring by letting any audio files that you play reach their end.

Kudos to Reed McLay at forums.crackberry.com for this solution.

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.

Speaker microphone malfunction


I had same problem with my PPC so I tried hard reset didn't help, PCS support did hard reset and nothing, same problem so what I did is insert that headset plug in and out couple of times that fix the problem but any time I use my wired headset problem comes back.
I realized that the problem was in the 2.5 jack it self, I took it to Sprint store, left it for a hour when I am back the tech guy said that they replace my phone with new one, oh well this is third phone in less then 14 mos.
But anyway now it works just fine so I try to use Bluetooth headpiece much is possible. Waiting for my 2 year contract to end so I can get PPC-6800 or something better, had too many problems with this phone. I like the phone but it was freezing up on me every day and tech support didn't do s!#@!#t for me to fix it until this problem comes up, I'm kind of glad it did :-) in the way.

No more sound from speaker


I had a similar issue on mine. The easy fix was to insert a headset jack and pull it out quickly. I think something got stuck that turns off the speaker after I put the headset in the jack once. If this is the problem, I think you should also see a headset icon when making calls, even though no headset is attached.
