Re: phone wont talk--it has talkingidfeatures
The ringer has to be on first. Usually the unit announces the caller’s name after the 2nd ring. If you turn on the answering system and set the ring count to “2” the unit does not announce the caller’s name. Set it for more than 2 rings for name announcement.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Make sure your ringer is not in vibrate mode.
Try These this thing first
Press Menu > Settings/Tools > Settings > Sounds > Ringer Type > Voice Calls.
Select Caller IDor No Caller ID. (A list of ring type categories will be displayed.)
Select a category, and then use your navigation key to scroll through the available ringers. A sample ringer will sound as you highlight each option.
Press OK to assign a ringer.
Make sure your speaker works. Turn On your speaker phone while talking to someone and see whether you can hear or not.
Make sure the increase the volume using keys on side of your phone.
If none of these works the ******** motor needs to be cheked for loose connections inside the phone.

Did this just suddenly happen?If it did,unplug both the phone line and the power supply for about 5 minutes.The transformer needs to be unplugged from the wall.This is a common "reset" procedure for digital electronics which tend to lock up.Welcome to modern technology...lol.Plug everything back in.Digital is almost anything which can be programmed and a few other things such as your phone,video game consoles,modems,on and on.Whenever you have a problem of lock up or no power try doing this first.If this doesn't work,just comment here and I will get an autolink and reply ASAP.
