Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone

1 Answer

When I am on a phone call, my screen no longer darkens- so now, while I am talking, my cheek is randomly calling people or muting the call that I am on! I don't know what to do to fix this problem. Anyone?

I would try a reset. Apple's procedure: "Reset iPhone settings. From the Home screen choose Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. All your preferences are reset, but no data or media is deleted."

Phone mutes while I'm talking

Sometimes when phone is security locked and you answer a call your phone gives you access to call screen until you put it to your ear (and the phone blanks screen because it's at your ear). If you accidently hit the mute button with your face before the screen turns off you will mute yourself. This happens to me sometimes and when i pull the phone away from my ear the phone display lights up but the phone is on lock so i have to put in pin to unlock screen and unmute myself

Why does my screen turn blank after a call is placed on my lg306g ?

Try not to cover the proximity sensor.Are you using any kind of plastic cover or case that might be blocking it? When you're on a phone call and to avoid 'cheek dialing', the screen is supposed to turn off and turn back on when you put your phone away from your face.The bottom button in the middle, by the way, is called the HOME button.
Maybe Its the proximity sensor. Try compressed air from your nearest computer shop and spray into the holes around the speaker.

When making a call the screen shuts of and wont come back on.I can hear the person talking but cant use dial pad

If you move the phone from your ear to a viewing position it should light up so you can access the dial pad- you may have to do this motion a couple of times. If that doesn't work try pressing any key on phone such as the home button you may have to go back into phone mode after home screen but it shouldn't end the call. If you access your call settings you may be able to set that your screen stays lit during calls, the down side to that is possible accidental pressing of the keypad with your cheek which is why screen is set to go blank. Hope this helps Jane

Why can't anyone hear me when I call or when I answer a call?

yep there is a problem with your microphone if you are sure the phone has no other problems. Sometimes when you are talking and if the screen is a touch screen your cheeks can by mistake press the mute button. but in that case you can use the SPEAKER OPTION and see if it s working or not. Hope this helps.

Callers cannot hear me reply,I can hear them ?

Sounds like you have your phone on MUTE. If so the word MUTE should be on your screen. It might be in the upper or lower corners of your screen.
To unmute.....while in the TALK the soft key on the far right of the menu key. it should look like this -> -> . MUTE should then clear off screen. You can now hang up. Now go back to TALK and call someone and see if that corrects your problem. Happy talking!

I can hear the persoon I'm speaking with but they

Sounds like you're accidentally engaging your mute setting either with your hand, cheek or chin (depending on how you're holding the phone). Touch screen is very sensitive.

Hope this info was helpful to you. Good Luck!

How do I put my Uniden 5.8GHZ on mute?

A reply years later! - but as I was googling for it you just never know who it may help!
You can temporarily 'Mute' a call if in 'Talk' mode (e.g. on an active call).
The LED screen will show you a Mute soft key on the bottom left of the screen - use the silver button directly below to select 'Mute'. 'Mute on' will appear on the screen once you have selected - toggle this to turn off.
