My phone works normally except that I cannot hear people through the earpiece on my phone. They can still hear me, and my phone works fine with my headset or on speaker. Does this mean that the speaker in my earpiece is bad? If so, is this easily replacable, or should I just get a new phone? My contract is up, so I could get a good deal...but I'm actually quite happy with the phone besides this issue.

Re: Can't Hear Calls
If you can find a dealer willing to replace the earpiece (preferably from a used "junk" phone, so it won't cost too much), you should be able to get it fixed for a reasonable price. Otherwise, start drooling at the new phones.

Hi, The earpiece of the phone you are using is bad. The earpiece is a small speaker inside the phone that allows you to hear when someone calls. It is collected close to where you put your ear when you are making calls.
When you replace the earpiece, the phone will work properly.
The speaker phone and music uses a different speaker. You have a bad earpiece or connections to the main board via the gold plated fingers. This is a simple repair done by any shop. They should have used ones from dead phones laying around and charge you for the labor. If you are mechanically inclined, go to Howard's Forum and enter your question for description and photos on how to disassemble your model. You will need a T-6 Torx screwdriver.
