First, forget the icon on the screen.
Go to: Menu/Tools/Profiles (short cut is press the on/off button quickly) and choose General profile.
The sound for the ear piece is activated during a call, this sign on the side of the phone <---->, it might be too low.
Input this code in your phone *#3370# for better sound quality.
Also try switching off the phone and taking the battery out for 5 minutes, then restart.

The hand set does not work I can not talk or recieve. but it will ring when a call comes in and leave information

Ok, here's my theory you used an earphone but it didn't disconnect. To know if this so if you see the earphone icon on your phone then that is the case. This happened to one of my phones. Anyway here is how you can solve this plug in an earphone and shake the plug gently while still plugged in. Take out the earphone. If the icon comes off problem solved if not.... .... Try again. It is usually because of the switch in the earphone jack that switches between headset and handheld mode becoming jammed. :) hope this solution helps

I am unable to receive and make the calls. However, the ringing tone rings but when i receive the calls, the reciepant's voice is not hearable. On the right top, a 'headset' device icon...

There is a problem with your headset base.(probably in the jack sensing area) pls use some solvent to clean the jack base. its better if consult a mobile phone technician.

Unknown icon

I had the same problem for awhile too.
The box is your call equalizer settings.  The descending line indicates "boost bass" and the ascending line indicates "boost treble"
This usually only shows when you have your BB headset connected, to change the settings:
-plug in your headset -make a call, (voice mail works good for this) -press your menu button -select "Enhance Call Audio"
-make your selection
You'll see your choice on the screen
Let me know if this helps 208E019D

My lg incite bluetooth does not detect the motorola S9 bluetooth

this took me nearly an hour to figure out, but here goes:

go to "settings icon" - tap "bluetooth" - turn it on - go to "accessibility" tab - make sure your phone has a "name" - then make sure "allow other devices to connect", "all devices" and "other devices can discover me" are selected - then go back to the "general" tab - tap on the "bluetooth manager" link - go to "active connections tab" - click on "menu" at the bottom right corner - click on "paired devices" when the menu comes up - click on "add".

Now quickly put your bluetooth headset into pairing mode and as soon as the device and passkey asking screen comes up, tap on the little windows "find" (or "search") icon next to the "device" field. once your phone detects your headset, it will take you back the device and passkey screen, where the name of your headset will now appear in the device field. all you have to do is input your device passkey.

Now go back to "bluetooth manager" screen, where in your "my shortcuts" tab, your "hands-free connection" icon should be present. if it's not, then click on "new" in the bottom left corner and select the "hands-free/headset setup". On the screen that comes up, select "next" which will take you to the next screen. Here your headset device icon will be present with a small red checkmark beside it. Tap this and your phone will establish a connection with your headset. It will then take you back to "bluetooth manager" - "my shortcuts" screen where your "hands-free connection" icon will now be green with two small arrows beside it pointing towards each other. If you click on the active connections tab, you'll see your headset device icon there. Also, a pair of headphones will pop up on your windows toolbar at the very top.

After this setup, to ensure your phone's security, go back to the "settings" - "bluetooth" - "accessibility" tab. Select "paired devices only" under the Accessibility heading, and deselect "other devices can discover me".

Hope this helps far this is the only non-user friendly feature of the phone that I've come across, rest is pretty good and highly customizable.

Headset icon problem

Hey mayita,
If ur headset icon is not coming when u insert a headphone, it is due to non-supporting headphone or due to damaged headphone connector.
If u headset icon is continuously showing, it is also due to problem in ur headset connector. At this time, contact mobile technician.
Send me a feedback and rate my solution too.
Dont forget to post a clarification request for ur problem after it is solved.
