BB Pearl 8100 - can't hear incoming calls


I can't hear incoming calls on my BB Pearl. If I put it on speakerphone or use the headphone, I can hear, but this is not always a feasible option.

I've checked all the profiles, set to loud etc.. - I've tried every single option and still not working.

Can someone please help to fix this..

    Ear piece just stopped working.

    Of course just after the one-year warranty ran out!

    I have a Blackberry 8100 from AT&T and the earpiece speaker no longer seems to be working. I can only hear phone calls if the phone is on Speakerphone, or if I use either the wired or Bluetooth headset. I went to and it looks like they sell a replacement earpiece speaker for the 8100, as well as offer repair services. I'm going to check it out.

    I have the same problem. I can't hear the other person when I'm trying to call but apparently the other person at the other end of the call can. I've tried everything. I even restarted my phone completely but it did not help at all. The phone still has no sound.

Can only hear on speakerphone

This speakerphone is a separate speaker from the handset speaker, so if you can't hear through the handset and you have ensured that the volume in your profile is set up to max, then I would have to say there is something wrong with the handset speaker.

Hope this helps,

Speakerphone when answering blackberry pearl 8100

I had the same problem. I called T-mobil, my carrier, and they had me take the battery out while the phone was 'on' and put it back in. After the security scan was done, the tech called me back on my cell - problem fixed. (I'm not sure if he did something on his end too, but at least try it your self first!)

Blackberry pearl 8100

if this issue persists on speakerphone or not, it depends on if this is a software problem. if they still cant hear you when you put them on speaker then they still wont be able to hear you. if that is the case, contact your provider for a link to dowload the most up to date software.....

if it only works when you put them on speaker phone, contact your wireless provider or RIM (1-877-255-2377) to replace or repair the phone
