Hopefully this will works for your models because it seems to work for my Blackberry Curve 8330 Smartphone.

The problem is a well known bug in the device OS.

It occurs when certain types of audio files (like music) are interrupted. The speaker is not released correctly.

The work around is to just activate Voice Activated Dialing (the service that allows you to 'tell' the phone to do something, like call someone.) That will force the speaker free, allowing you to continue your call. Starting up the Voice Notes Recorder will also sometimes work.

The culprit is non-BlackBerry audio file. You can help prevent the problem from occurring by letting any audio files that you play reach their end.

Kudos to Reed McLay at forums.crackberry.com for this solution.

Hi, I got the same problem with this BlackBerry, I personally have a BB 7100R, great phone, great reception, etc...

Anyways, the microphone is dead also, I took my phone apart, and yes, there is a mic on in, its next to the KEY #5 on the key pad, this microphone, cannot be fixed, because is Ball Attach and surface mount technology, the only thing you can do, is buying another black berry and swap the main board or using a Headset, in my case, the microphone works if I twist the phone, but, this is no recomended, because you can brake something inside, my best guess is that, because of the many drops of this phone, perhaps something in loose, or there is a false contact.

Anyways, hope this can helps

PS.
To see the mic, you need to do the following

1. Turn Off Cell
2. Remove battery cover and battery
3. Remove sim card
4. Use TORX #6 to remove the 2 screws on the back
5. Remove BLUE PLASTIC protector from the speaker
6. Remove 2 screws from this section.
7. Carefully remove the cover, its a snap on
8. Using the same torx, flip your cell phone and remove another 4 screws, located on the back of the keyboard.
9. Carefully remove the keyboard.
10. Done, you will see a small metal thingy with a circle on it and some round rubber piece (this whole thing is the Microphone for your blackberry)

Hope this helps.

Bluetube is connected to my cell phone but I can't hear anything


There may be linking issues between the headset and the phone. Page 11 of the user guide offers these suggestions. Also, here is a link for re-pairing your headset to the phone:

Plantronics Explorer 230 Pairing Instructions


Remember that you want to purge any possible bluetooth interference from your phone.

"Callers cannot hear me or I cannot hear caller/dialing tone:
The headset is not turned on or the headset is not connected to mobile phone. Press the call control button for 2 seconds until you hear a beep or see the indicator light glow blue to turn headset on.
Your headset is out of range. Move the headset closer to the phone or Bluetooth device.
Your headset battery is drained. Charge your battery using the AC power adapter supplied.
The listening volume is too low. Press the volume key up (toward the earloop) to increase the sound heard in the headset."

Good luck from Headsets Direct!

I can hear callers through my s11 plantronics headset but after using and trying all configuration no.'s they can't hear me at all


Make sure the Plantronics S11 headset is plugged into your handset jack on your phone, not the headset jack, this will make a difference on most phones. After plugging the S11 into the handset jack on your phone, you will need to pick up your handset receiver and sit it off to the side of the phone to place a call or to receive a call, after you are finished with your call sit the handset receiver back in the cradle on your phone.

I have tried all configurations settings with my new Plantronics S11 headset, and with some I can hear on the headset, but the caller can't hear me. With others the caller can hear me, but I can't...



You need to remember a couple of things when using amplifiers and headsets. Normally they will not work if you connect them to a phone with cordless accessories. Also, you need to make sure that you're connecting the amplifier to the HANDSET jack on the phone (this requires removing the handset off of the phone to access an open line). Give that a try and you should be fine. If not, contact your retailer or Plantronics at 800-544-4660 x5538 for warranty service.

When the phone rings and the person answering the call can hear the caller the problem is: the caller cannot hear the voice of the person that answered the phone.


you can try to use a headset and see if it will work
normally if the caller cannot hear the receiver theres some problem with the mouthpiece. if the headset and loudspeaker works then you have to go to the store and have it fixed.
hope this help

My mic doesn't work; callers can't hear me


I don't have the answer but have the same problem. Uniden tech support had me disconnect power, etc. to no avail. Next solution was "replace the unit". I'm looking for a two-line phone with no answering device - use voice mail. Any ideas?
