Distorted Sound on Speakerphone

The sound on my RAZR is ok in the earpiece but distorted when I use the speakerphone or ringtones. I have already replaced the actual speakerphone speaker, but the sound is still garbled. Any help would be appreciated.

Can't hear through the ear piece. must use speakerphone

Typically when the earpiece (or speaker for that matter) is not working, that indicates that the component is faulty. In order to correct the issue, a replacement part must be installed.
Due to the popularity of the Razr V3 series, replacement pats are not difficult to find. Also, due to it's age, these parts aren't expensive to replace either.
Online retailers, such as eBay typically provide the easiest access to such parts, in this case, the earpiece should cost only about $4-8 with S/H included. The downside being that the Razr would need to be opened in order to replace the earpiece and depending on the level of experience of the end-user, it could be rather difficult to get to some of the Razr's interior components without damaging others.
There are online retailers that provide this type of service and it will usually cost anywhere from $35-85 for a flat fee repair, but that may not be cost effective given the age of the Razr.
Another alternative is to purchase a relatively inexpensive headset and pair it with your Razr. It will provide both the incoming/outgoing sound and can be purchased for between $6-30. Note that there are two types of headsets: wired and bluetooth, with the bluetooth sets at the upper end of the price scale and the wired set at the lower end.
Lastly, if the Razr is still under warranty or you have insurance coverage through your provider, this type of failure is covered under the terms & conditions and could be replaced with a new phone for little to no out of pocket expense for the end-user.

Razr only works on speakerphone

The other post refers to the process that allows you to use speaker only, instead of automatically selecting earpiece. Unfortunately, this will not resolve your issue, as it appears that your earpiece has a loose connection and must be repaired, or you can continue to use speakerphone, bluetooth (if capable), or wired headset.

When making or receiving calls, i can only hear with "speakerphone", not through regular earpiece

These phones can only do one set of speakers at a time. If you want to hear through the regular earpiece take it off speakerphone.

I have the same problem with my pebl which occured when i had a replacement cover fitted. I believe there should be a copper wire attached to the earpiece inside which has gone missing during the process. as of yet unsure where to attach the new one.

the speakerphone speaker is actually just kinda resting inside the phone. If you have dropped it recently it might have just become disconnected and you can have a proffessional put it back in place for you. If you really want to attempt this yourself you can email me at and I will send you a guide on how to do this. I don't recomend it though
