Unfortunately sometimes buttons get stuck, the best method to attempt to fix is good ole Isopropyl Alcohol and a Q-Tip.

Dip 1 head of a Q-tip in the alcohol, then swab the corners of your button, be sure not to SATURATE the button, just so that the acholol penetrates the cracks of the unit where the call button is located.

Once swabbed, place the headset on a warm or hot surface, maybe in direct sunlight, on top of an entertainment center, on top of a satellite or cable TV receiver in your home for an hour or two, for the radiation to dry out any wet solvent that may have seeped inside the unit.

Remember Isporopyl Alcohol is an aseptic cleaner, and, when dolluted with water, cleans hospitals and pharmacies, and is used in about 90% of workplaces with computers as a cleaner and electronic disenfectant.
Be aware, I am not responsible for any damages of your unit, but this is the only fix I know of.

I hope this helps, or you can go to the website of your supplier, fill out an online registration form for your unit, then give them a call and request an exchange or repair authorization.

When ever i call someone i cant use the front screen because they can hear me but i cant hear them unless i have them on speaker its verry inconvenient what should i do to fix this ?

Problem is with your phone's speaker it is bad and needs to be either worked on or replaced. But another issue is that, something might be blocking the earpiece hole, making the phone to view the intrusion as an actual earpiece insert an earpiece to confirm that nothin is blocking it.
If notin is bocking it, then take care of the faulty speaker.
You could get it fixed at a local repairer's.
But pending that time, if you have a handsfree device, use it to make your calls for convenience sake.

I hope I was able to help?
Have a great day.

There is a problem with your battery. This line of phones has the defect and your cell phone provider can't even fix it. I would suggest you buy a new phone.

Cant hear when make phone callhow do i fix it


The problem with your phone is that the earpiece on your phone is bad that is why you cannot hear the party calling you or hear anything while you call.

All you need to do is to replace the earpiece on your phone and you will see that you can hear whoever you are talking to on your phone.

Change the earpiece on your phone and you will see that the problem is solved. meanwhile, you can keep using the headset pending the time you will replace the earpiece.

Take care.

People cant hear me when i make calls but i can hear them


Since your caller can hear you but you can not hear them. This indicates that your hear piece is bad and need to be fixed.

I advice you fix the earpiece problem by replacing with a new earpiece.

Meanwhile, i advice you get an answering or earpiece that will be connected to your phone, with this you can hear your caller and your caller can equally hear you.

I wish you best of luck.

I cant make a call

You have an earpiece failure. You would need to get the earpiece swapped out by a phone technician or you would need to call your carrier and speak with someone about getting another device through warranty.
