It went away when I plugged the charger in, now I can hear the person on the other end, but they can't hear me. The phone did get wet, as my 11 month old was "sucking" on it....as though it was a teether!
I brought my phone into verizon and they cleaned the charging terminal and it has worked fine ever since. My phone was accidentally dropped into water. if they tell you it can not be fixed use a small brush to gently clean the terminals on the bottom of your phone.

Mine said car kit and I kept reading it was because it got wet, and my phone didn't get wet. I noticed a little corrosion where I plug the phone in starting to form and I rubbed a little off and the car kit on the main screen went away.
I just ran into this problem myself (besides that fucked up white main screen i have). So after reading all these other solutions i played with the thing and found that its one of the right-most pins in the charging port. Probabily a pin touching the metal housing or another pin completes the same electrical circuit used to determine if a car kit is hooked in. I figured this one by shoving a knife through the opening to clear out any debris and every-swipe made the "car kit" banner dissappear. so check for pins touching something it shouldn't. ( i said F-it and ripped that pin out!)
I reinserted the wall charger a couple of times and it made the "car kit" go away. My guess is that two pins in the little connector inside the phone somehow got shorted together (dust or something). I saved the butter knife soloution for my last ditch attempt as I wasn't sure that shorting all the pins wouldn't increase the chances of damage to the phone. The post above definitely go the creative juices flowing since we had no idea how it got in "car kit" mode.
same problem....i found a neat solution to this one..see if it works for you too...i simply charged my phone as much as possible, drove to a nearby lake(you should do this while its light outside for best effect's to be noticed), and then i THROUGH the damn thing as farrrrr as possible..be sure that you spend the time so as to take it all in..then, go to your nearest retailer and get any new phone that does not say LG on the front...it worked for me and i'm glad to say that it definetly decreased any homicidile thoughts i had been having due to the issue.
It's actually something wrong with your phone. The connector on the bottom of the phone may have gotten wet. If you are comfortable taking the phone apart you can clean the connector w/ 99.5% isopropyl alcohol and a soft bristled brush.
A clarification on solution #1: Try pressing the tip of the knife (I used the end of a nail file) onto the lower right hand side of the charger area. That's what got it for me. If that doesn't work, try other parts of the end...
Well from my experiences, and I manage a wireless store, you have gotten the phone wet in someway. It could have been anything from just sitting in the sun or being in the bathroom when you take a shower. You may try putting the phone in a bag of white rice for 8 hours or so and that could make it come out of car kit.
