Question about Cell Phones

1 Answer

When I plug a headset into my Samsung SGH-x497, I can't make calls--it will ring one time at the destination and then hang up. I'd like to be able to use this in the car.

    I forgot to say that I've tried this with three different headsets, same results. Thanks for the suggestion.

    I have the same problem with the boom style headset that came with the 8703e. It used to work, now it drops the connection after dialing and ringing the destination number. I wonder if the earpiece is broken, or if I accidentally changed a config option or pressed a controlling button.

    Any thoughts??

I would try using a friends headset to rule out the possibly that your headset is defective.

I cannot here the phone ringing from my CS55 headset or another call coming in.

You will need the Plantronics HL10 handset lifter in order to have the CS55 ring, indicating an incoming call. The HL10 also allows you to answer remotely on most phones and hang-up remotely.

Hi, At the office we have a Mitel IP phone we have just bought a headset model JAC0021201- B. We cant get it to work. Please can you advise how we set this up. Regards Trevor

I'm not finding manufacturer detail on this headset, only sales via Amazon, and it's dicey info at that.

So,I'm not certain this headset is compatible.  The only Mitel approved headsets are the Plantronics Polaris models.  These headsets fit into the headset port.  Such headsets require a headset button to be programmed and enabled on the phone to work.  When the phone rings, you will have to press the ringing button, to hang up, you will have to press the cancel button.

Other headset models may work, but require them to be plugged into the handset port and the existing handset will have to be plugged into it's unit.  Such units will require lifting the handset to answer the call and hang it up when completed.  Some such units have an optional lift kit.

I personally use a Plantronics Polaris "in the ear" model.  Plantronics web site has a config guide that will help you select a headset.

good luck,

How does a regular headset work? I plugged it into the back of the phone, but don't know how to make it pick up...

if the headset is a wireless one there is a button on the headset itself you need to press to pick up or hang up a call. alternativly look for a headset or pick up button on the phone needs to be pressed. this i diffulcult to answer further without knowing the model of your headset.

download user manual for the phone at the following
check page 23 regarding using heaset.

when the phone rings press the headset feature on your phone and then select the ringing line button.
then press cancel to hang up.

I hope this was useful.
