Question about Palm Treo 700w Smartphone

Phone connection issues

Often when I make a call the my phone will connect on my end, but the person I am calling hears nothing. I must hang up and try again. I contacted Palm they said they did not understand, had me do a hard restart and then said if that does not work it would be $199 to fix. I believe they do understand the issues. Can anyone help me?

    I place a call and I can hear the person i am calling but they can not hear me. I have had to hang up and call back several times. Before they can hear me.

    I did as suggested with no luck. Strange thing is that sometimes it works great. Other times I might need to call 3-4 times until it works properly.

    Thanks for the feed back.

Well, I get this from time to time too and am embarrassed to discover each time that it was my Bluetooth device in my car I was standing next to that locked onto my phone and took over of my mic and audio features of the handset.

It is possible that your Bluetooth features is turned on and locking onto some device that you, at the time, are unaware of. That may be the problem on your end or your friends end as well. Try turning off the Bluetooth feature on both phones to see it it solves the issue.

However, if you hear them but they can’t hear you maybe your mic has a bad connection inside the ph case... once open you can clean the contacts with a pencil eraser and bend the mic contacts up a little and reassemble. You can remove the mic from the ph case and take it apart to clean it, but note the location, orientation and mark the side you can see of the black contact base that is snapped into the rubber mic holding boot. The mic looks like a small watch battery when removed from the rubber mounting boot. It is easy to get it all confused and out of wack if you do not mark things and or even take pictures of it before removal. Unless your ph is really old and you have a very dirty mic opening or know of spilling coffee in it or the like, cleaning the contacts may be all you need to do.

That’s what I know…

How to establish a connection with a phone number that does not seem to be working

This happens occasionally to me. Hanging up and trying again helps. If that doesn't work, have them call you, or you call from a different phone. If that doesn't work, think about whether you or they have reception where you both are. Hope that helps

When i make or get call I can hear them but they can't hear me. I get this yellow swiggly object on my screen.


There is some problem with your phone mic only.please use your headset to check it.Connect your headset and answer phone with your headset.If the person don other side hear you then the problem is with the mic only.Please take the mobile to NOKIA CARE centre and they will repair the mic.

The yellow colour swiggly object which comes next to the battery bar is nothing unusual.It shows that your call is been connected with the person on other side.This symbol will not appear when the other person's phone is ringing,When the person picks up the phone this yellow colour symbol will apear.]

I have a Sprint LG Lotus. I switched from a blackberry with T-Mobile to this, and I do love the phone. My only issue is that when I receive a call while on the other line - my Lotus will NOT disconnect...

whenever you switch lines, if you let the original person your talking to know to disconnect the line the call should end. When you switch lines the phone won't automatically hang up because you may want to switch back to the original call, but if the person your talking to disconnects that should take care of your issue.

I can make and receive calls, but I cannot hear anything.

Check Windows Sound mixer for application volume. Down in system tray at right side of taskbar double click sound icon for XP or click sound icon once and click Mixer for Vista. Look through volume settings for your phone application. Make sure it is not muted and volume is up.

If you use Dsl as a internet provider make sure you have the filters on each phone. If you use cablevision and have a wireless connection make sure you chage the phone to a 5.2ghz because you might have the wireless router with the same ghz causing a coflict. This will also create loss. of internet connections then you use the phone

depending on how you hold the phone this could be the answer you are looking for since your problem only occurs sometimes. see how you hold your phone as you put it up to your ear where is your thumb you might be pressing on the lower part of the screen. this will mute that call. causing you to hear them but they will not be able to hear you. next time you make a call and the other person can not hear you look at the screen and see if the picture of the mic in the lower right hand corner is greyed out if it is press it and it should work. I know this answer sounds silly but it happens to me alot.
