    I fixed it by following someone else's solution. I stuck a butter knife in where you charge the phone, and it worked instantly. My phone did not get wet. So, all I can assume is that this is a problem with the device itself. I originally thought that my two year old had gotten a hold of it, but I don't think this is the case anymore.

    I had the same problem,what happened is that moisture got in the area where you plug the charger cord in.I took tha battery out and used a hair dryer on low heat and dried the entire area out,the phone now works perfect.The best way to avoid this is to keep the rubber plug in the phone or a piece of tape or bandage to keep moisture out,dont keep you phone in the bathroom while taking bath or shower...william yamnitz,mulberry fl.

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.

Very low sound

If you are using a cable box, the problem may be in the audio settings menu of the box. Check to make sure that the audio levels are set to maximum and save the changes.

Often these get changed accidentally.

Says Car Kit on phone but has never had a car kit hooked up to it

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...
