Question about Samsung SCH-u740 Cellular Phone

Can't not hear callers but they can hear me

Though working fine last night, this morning I answered a call and the other person could not hear me. When I tried recalling them, I could not hear the ring. However, they texted me that they could hear me. I can hear when the loud speaker is on as well hear the keypad. the "earpiece volume" is on high.

    I have the same issue. About a month ago, it went out for a very short period of time and I tried closing it and re-opening and it worked fine. Then, last week I started hearing some static pops when other people were talking to me. Then, 2 days ago, I dropped the phone and I haven't been able to hear since. I can still hear on speaker or with my bluetooth. My assumption is that there is a loose connection to the receiver in there somewhere. With the dual hinge, maybe the wires pull a little or get worn out from switching back and forth?

    My phone died the same way, i started hearing a buzzing sound and then folks on the other line couldnt hear my voice.

    Funny how they break down within days (AFTER) the warranty expires....

    Seems like a lot of us have been having the same issues. I'm sad to see mobile companies don't offer some sort of recall when the problem becomes this apparent, obvious and repetitive.

I had the same problem with my cell and I took it into the verizon store and they said that they could maybe fix it or replace it. I had to leave it for 2hrs while they checked it. Ended up being a bad microphone where you speak into. The tech said that the have had some come back with bad speakers. If you dont reallize, your microphone speaker is the little hole on the bottom edge. They replaced my cell.

Took the phone to Verizon. They replaced the phone (not the battery and back) because I was under warranty. The phone works fine. They're only guess was that it was due to some condensation inside the phone. Although I've never dropped the phone in water. She said that perhaps I left it in the bathroom while taking a shower. maybe picked it up with wet hands...who knows?!

Hmm, this phone has many problems. The reason I found this site is because the fact that I can only hear using loudspeaker and that I also have charging problems.

Yep i have the same problem too... i was gonna go to verizon today. speakerphone is not good for business calls. quite unprofessional.

Hi Jaison, Please could you help me with a problem with my Nokia 110? The problem is that I am able to make an outgoing call, but when the person answers I am unable to hear that person. He/she is able to...

it seems to be an hardware fault.since as you said you cant hear the caller, your phones headpiece is seemed to be faulty. you need to replace it form a nearest service center.also before that just try pressing the up arrow key on you phone while calling it may increase the volume if you accidentally decreased the headpiece volume.
good luck

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

No sound unless in speakerphone mode. It rings & dials just fine. However, when I flip it open, I can't hear the caller. I can communicate normally if I switch into speakerphone mode. This is a recent...

Seriously, sometimes if you have the other person yell, it will just magically "pop" back in. THis only lasts a few minutes though. Unless you can deal with speaker phone, I suggest a new phone.
