    I have the same problem! I tried turning it off, I took the battery out and I restored factory settings. It only wiped out alot of my phone numbers and music files but did not remove the icon or allow me to call.

    I have a headset icon on the Nokia 6085.  There is of course no description of this icon in the user manuel.  The only way to hear sound is through loud speaker.  Turning phone off, resetting phone and removing card did not help.  this is hands down the absolute worst phone on the market.  No wonder why Nokia is doing so poorly.  Their product stinks.

    Little headphone icon is on my phone and when I call someone I can't hear them! I know it's a volume icon, but is the only one NOT listed in the manual. I'm taking my phone into my att store and demanding a different one!

Here's how I fixed the damn headset thang on my Nokia.

Take out the SIM card and start the phone *WITHOUT* the SIM card.
Wait until the phone's screen says, "insert SIM card."
Wait a minute, then re-insert the SIM card, and re-start the phone.
Voila, the horrid headset symbol is gone (I hope).
Do it a few times if it doesn't take the first time (although, it did on mine).

Hope this works for you, because hell, that headset setting is a real beyatch when you *don't* want it. ;)

Hi,

Try restarting the phone. This should get rid of it. If restarting doesn't work, turn it off and take the battery out for a few minutes then put back and turn on.

    If this didn't work then it means the software has been corrupted. A master reset should solve the problem. If you decide to do this, backup your data as this wipes out everything.

Tried all the mentioned, except the demolition method. No good.

How I solved the problem:

Turned off the phone, took out the battery and the SIM card from the phone, and then inserted another SIM card. That's basically the idea.
Then I put back the battery. Turned on the phone with the alien card inserted, and there was no problem anymore.
Except that it wasn't my SIM card.
So I did the procedure again, placing back the original SIM card. After starting the phone again, there was no problem.

Hope it'll work for you other guys too, godspeed ! :)

I saw this suggestion for another nokia model and this worked!

1.Turn off your phone..

2.Press and hold three keys, i.e. Green Button(call answer key) + " * " button + " 3 " button and while holding the buttons boot the phone.. ANY three keys

3.Hold till the phone shows the Nokia Logo/formatting screen..

What looks like a head set icon is actually the voice mail icon if you look on page 40 of the users guide it shows it. I don't know why they have that, but I got rid of it buy going to AT&T's web site you will have to log in then look for technical support chat tell them what's up and they will just send a signal or something and the icon will go away. Or just call and they can do it that way. You will have to look around to find the chat here's the address http://www.wireless.att.com/support/chatLanding.do then select voice mail and chat with customer support. Let me know if this works

I have a Nokia 6085 - headset i con limits stops calls


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:

http://pinouts.ru/CellularPhones-Nokia/nokia_pop_pinout.shtml

for the pinout diagram.

Headset icon on 6085


I trawled the net looking for answers. Some suggestions were, take out battery and sim for a few minutes, restore factory settings, clean connections... someone even suggested you put it on the washing machine while it was in use! I tried all of the above without success (yes, even the washing machine one). I rang the Nokia helpline and all they offered was the suggestions above and to send it in to be fixed. I was answering the phone with the headset in, just by chance, after a day or so I removed the headset and voila! problem had solved itself, icon was removed. It did come back when someone made me a call but I put the headset in for a few minutes then took it out and the icon went away. Hope this helps :)
