Must use Speaker to hear phone calls -built in ear speaker auto-disabled

SYMPTOM: When I make a phone call, I need to either use a BT headphone or press the "speakerphone" softkey in order to hear the other party. When I raise the volume (side button) it says "headphone" on the display, but no headphones are plugged in.

CAUSE (this has been happening since...): I had the iPhone plugged into a mini jack cable that connects to the AUX function of my car. We were listening to music when driving when I received an incoming call. We were actually able to take the call on the car (via speakers and built-in mic in car, tho it was not in "hands free" mode), but ever since, I can't make a call and hear the other party by holding the phone up to my ear. It seems that the iPhone still thinks there is a phantom plug in the phono jack.

IDEAS for a solution?? Thanks

    Making or answering calls is only possible when I turn the speaker on. On the other side of the line they are able to hear me, but the ear speaker is dead. I restored it to original settings - hoping for some software conflict to be the reason, but the problem remain. It may be an hardware malfunction of the ear speaker, but I still hope to find somebody with a software solution, since for some seconds I am able to listen in the ear speaker.

If it still does this after a hard reset and a software restore, it's usually caused by a defective audio jack module, this should be covered under warranty. If you're not covered, you can try a iphone repair guide websites, there are also places that sell iphone parts.

I can't hear people but people can hear me


It could be a speaker issue. Try using you phone on speaker phone, or ear buds with with built in MIC or blue tooth headset. If it works with these options then its an issue with the speaker. If it doesnt work even with other options then its a more serious issue

How do I turn up audio volumn side button says its full up still can't hear


Do you have the phone on speaker or the earphone? There are differnet volume adjustments for speaker vs. in ear vs. the headphones. If one is really quiet, try one of the other ways to see if it is an issue with a speaker, or an issue with the phone?

Cannot hear incoming or outgoing callls


1- Probably the problem is with the speaker = change the in-built speaker
OR
2- The problem is with the earphone jack. = Check if a headphone sign is there on the screen. If yes... then connect & remove headphone/ear-set jack into your mobile few times till the headphone sign is gone from the mobile screen.

People on other end hard to hear


hello all,

This is a factory defect from the switch inside the headset plug which when used will disconnect sound to the ear speaker on the phone and route it to the headphone or an ear piece.When this switch is closed by a fault you won't be able to hear anything through the ear speaker once the connection is established.

Take it into your Service Provider's store.
