I have used my earpiece for quite some time and it has worked just fine. But now, it is frozen in the purple mode--I can not do anything with it at all--it won't even turn off--it will just beep one time and then nothing happens.
Mine does the same thing from time to time. I drain the power all the way down, then plug it in and leave it for a few days....starts right back up! Kinda ghetto of a fix, but with no warranty, I have no other choice

The phone may be in headset mode. If you can hear sounds through the headset but cannot hear sounds from the earpiece on the phone, it's in headset mode. Power down the phone and restart it. Otherwise no sound from the earpiece mean a bad earpiece.
go to tools and setting --> sound settings --> keypad volume...see if you see "KEYPAD VOL-EARJACK"...that means that your phone is stuck in EARJACK mode....get a wired ear piece, plug it in, make a call, and then unplug after you end the call....that should resolve your problem...
The other post refers to the process that allows you to use speaker only, instead of automatically selecting earpiece. Unfortunately, this will not resolve your issue, as it appears that your earpiece has a loose connection and must be repaired, or you can continue to use speakerphone, bluetooth (if capable), or wired headset.
The speaker phone and music uses a different speaker. You have a bad earpiece or connections to the main board via the gold plated fingers. This is a simple repair done by any shop. They should have used ones from dead phones laying around and charge you for the labor. If you are mechanically inclined, go to Howard's Forum and enter your question for description and photos on how to disassemble your model. You will need a T-6 Torx screwdriver.
If you can find a dealer willing to replace the earpiece (preferably from a used "junk" phone, so it won't cost too much), you should be able to get it fixed for a reasonable price. Otherwise, start drooling at the new phones.
Same here. I tried many things but cannot ring it back to headset mode. I continuously see the headphone icon shown in the phone, so it seems that the phone thinks that it is still connected to earphones. Sometimes, it works fine, but mostly it does not. If I connect the phone on bluetooth earphones, it works fine. Any help will be appreciated.
