Speaker microphone malfunction

I can no longer use my phone without a headpiece. Apparently the speaker and the microphone are malfunctioning. However, the notification sounds are still active. I can hear the phone ring, but I am unable to answer it without the headpiece. Also the phone will not let me enter voice activated numbers without the headpiece one. Any ideas???

Re: 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.

Error 507

It's a software malfunction try removing the battery WHILE THE PHONE IS ON also remove the sim card. Replace them and power it up. If it doesn't fix it you need to hook it up to a computer and update the software. It is an old phone so don't be too surprised if none of that works. You probably need a new phone. And I wouldn't recommend another BB get an HTC phone they last much longer =)

Ear speaker and voice microphone do not work.

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

Stand by time is about 12 hours

Couple possibilities:

1. Old battery: After a couple years of use, the battery simply can't hold a charge as well as it used to. If you are using an old battery, try getting a replacement.

2. Replaced battery with a NON-Brand name: If you replace the battery with a lesser expensive pack from china, they will typically use an inferior set of cells. Use only the name brand batteries for best performance.

3. You're in a location where you cannot pick up a DIGITAL signal. If you are roaming or unable to pick up a digital signal, the cell phone will constantly be searching for a tower wasting precious energy. For best standby times, make sure you are receiving a digital signal.

4. Battery charger malfunction: If you're accustomed to charging your battery with a wall charger, try charging it from your cigarette lighter in your car or with a different charger. If it works longer after doing this, drain the battery and charge again the way you usually do. If you're back down to only 12 hour stand-by, the usual charger may be malfunctioning.

5. Make sure your backlight is not on all the time. If your phone has a setting to keep the backlight on, turn it off.

Good Luck.

T-Mobile wing problems

When I went to my local T-mobile dealer about the sudden absence of any sound from my Wing, he suggested I take the battery out, then put it back in. It worked.

Since then I have discovered that sometimes this fix works (why?) and sometimes it doesn't.

Not happy at all here, to have spent so much on the phone and then find out that when I answer a phone call, I've no idea whether I'm going to be able to hear anything or not, and I may or may not be able to "fix" it.

If anyone has more insight on this, I'd sure like to hear it.
