    same thing. very fustrating. i can hear the phone when it rings, but you can't hear when the phone is up against your ear, it only operates calls on speakerphone. there must be some faulty design in this model.

    I just started having this problem too... =(
    It actually happens more often when I try to make calls than when I receive them, although it sometimes happens then to. Very annoying!

Dear Tamass

This is another one of those problems i just was waiting to hear about.......(sorry about the punn here).

Right, now m seriously thinking that one of your speakers has become faulty, or you have accidently either muted the phone, or there has been a software failure. Two of these problems you can correct yourself if o have the time, skill and the patience, the other problem (software fault) im afraid is a lil more serious and will probably require the phone to be sent away for specialist repair, or to someone who an re-programme phones.

Now if the speaker has blown, you can go to and get hold of the service sheet for the phone which will give you guides on changing components and repairing your device. If you are going to DIY jobby a repair, then you will need to leg it to maplins electronic store and buy yourself a anti-static wriststrap and then a set of precision screwdrivers for opening mobile phones. They do a set for £10.00GBP specifically for opening mobile phone chassis. The most common tools for this will be a TX6, TX4, TX2, TX1, TX8 and maybe a TX10 (Torx/ star shaped). you may also need a security driver (two pronged screwdriver that looks like half a fork). Like i said, you can get these tools in a set that even has colour coded handles so you know wich ones do which bits, and as stated, itll only cost a tenner, and you get this from maplin.

Dive online and go to any online market (ebay) or phone spares thingy place, and you can get yor bits, bobs and parts from there too. Nice and cheap and will do the job just nice.

Well I hope this all works out for you, and pleae feel free to contact me at any time if you require any further assistance on this or any other matter

yours sinceely



If it is your phone settins tat have played up here, yo can just restore your phone back to original actory settings and this should wipe anything that has caused your phone to act so weirdly, but do remember to back up all your names, addies and numbers in case it wipes them for a software fault though, i have dawn a blank on that though, although i will keep thinking about this for you.......take care

My phone rings but it will not answer i can't hear the person on the other end

If the other person can hear you, then the problem is with the earpiece on the phone. The phone rings using another speaker on the base unit. Swap the mic/earpiece handset unit with another phone and use with existing base unit, to narrow down the fault.
