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.

Phone rings but cant hear caller they can hear me


This is a problem that has to do with the speaker of the phone(not your loudspeaker but the small one). It is probably broken and as a result, there is no way you can hear your callers.
One way to confirm this is for you to put your call on loudspeaker when it comes in and you have picked it, if you can hear your caller then you are sure that the smaller speaker is faulty.
Also, you can try to use a very compatible earpiece or headset and see if you can hear your callers.
If this happens to be the case there is only one way you can get this to work and that is by sending it to a qualified repairer as the phone requires serious expertise so as not to damage it an further.
hope this solution helped solve your problem? please comment for more information and thank you for using the fixya.com website

I can't hear the caller but the caller can hear me!


just need a new earpiece speaker or it simply needs to be adjusted into place. If there is no repair shop around you or you do not want to mess with it, then just buy a $20 bluetooth headset to bypass the whole earpiece.

Assuming you have the audio volume turned up, do you have a bluetooth headset? Check the Bluetooth options to make sure there are no associated bluetooth devices (or just turn bluetooth off).

If that still doesn't work, try clicking the trackwheel and seeing if it says "Mute" or "Unmute" respectively.

If you still can't hear the callers voice, you may have a defective earpiece in the phone and it's time for repair. If you don't have a bluetooth headset, you can try to use one of those to hold a conversation. I have my bluetooth headset around my neck at all times, I can't stand talking without it. As an added bonus, people who can't see my earpiece in my ear thinks I'm talking to myself.

Can't hear anything in my bluetooth headset, mic is working


Hi--First, make sure your "mute" function is off.  Try holding both volume buttons at the same time for a second or two.  If that doesn't help, while you're having a conversation, either with or without bluetooth, make sure your phone's volume is turned up.  On a lot of phones the volume button will control both ringer and conversation volumes, but turning it up without the phone in use only affects the ringer volume.  My husband thought there was something wrong with his bluetooth until we noticed his phone volume was set too low--not as noticeable on handset, but bluetooth apparently needs volume up pretty high!

THE phone's Headset Plug is stucked. Try to plug and Un-plug the headset many times for it will release. Best, Play a Music and try this on so when you haer the sound coming from the phone, it means it works
