Nokia 6085 - unable to clear headset icon on display
My Nokia 6085 shows the headset icon on the display. I don't use a bluetooth or headset, nor is the bluetooth setting on. When this appears, neither party can hear, although the speaker works. AT&T wireless is stumped. The Nokia manual does not even show a headset icon in the icon description list. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated!!

fold the phone and look at the headset/data connector on the bottom. are there any debris, metal flecks, corrosion on the contacts? If so, try picking out any junk with a toothpick (careful, be gentle) and/or cleaning the contacts with a pencil eraser. Pay special attention to pins 2 and 3 - if they are shorted out then the phone will think there is a headset present. see:
It is the microphone that needs to be replaced. Usually it can be replaced no problem, I have done so on the Nokia 6085 myself. But yes, the reason the bluetooth works is because it has its own mic and the mic for the handset has gone bad.
are you using a bluetooth headset? if yes then check whether u have switched on your bluetooth headset & also your phone & bluetooth headset must be reachable, that is, both should be within range as mentioned in your bluetooth headset manual.
try this: get a headset connect it then disconnect it go to settings - profiles - and select another profile. If it doesnt work try to restore factory settings if you dont know the sercurity code it should be 12345 by default
