I finally figured it out! I have had the same problem. here is what to do. Make a phone-call, or when you answer a phone-call while connected press the arrow pointing to the right it will make the volume go up. I do not know why they do not publish this in their manual it took me months before I found this out.

There are several options: 1. phone settings - it may sound stupid, but there are several volume settings - one for the ringer, one for speaking volume, and one for the other person's volume. and each one should be adjusted seperately. 2. reception - it may be a problem of bad reception. bad antenna or something like that. 3. speaker may be faulty and should be replaced. best of luck

SOURCE: cant hear outta phone unless on speaker phone

If the problem is intermittent, and is affecting multiple components we are talking about a damaged ribbon cable. This cable feeds information from the main board to the board in the flip top. if damaged, you may see these symptoms or more; flickering screen, scratching or no sound from earpiece, screen blacks out, and all the symptoms may fluctuate when the phone is opened or shut. The only reason your speaker phone still works is its placement on the device. Here is a link to a public site that ranked it the top google results.

pls rate this post as fixya and good luck!!!!!!

This has become a growing problem:
  • As land lines have been reclaimed or replaced in the phone company networks;
  • As the growing older population has lost hearing sensitivity.
  • Because secondary carriers don't always receive the best or least crowded connectons (especially in case of residential versus business which pay more for service).
If you are getting static and cross talk (hearing radio or other people's converstations) notify the phone company and you will probably provided a new connection.

IF the problem is persistent without such interference, consider an amplified phone--some states (California for instance under Federal auspices) makes such equipment available free to hearing impaired. Also check the quality of your household wiring and connections.

Check with you neighbors--if they don't have the same problems, complain to the phone company. If they do, complain together.

Finally, some phones are simply too poor in quality to provide good sound. You might want to upgrade: either the phone set or its line or handset cord.

Why cant the person Im trying to talk too hear me?

Ok I got this one, have you tried talking to them? If not try that. or try speaking louder, Maybe yell into your speaker until everyone around you stops and looks at you like your crazy or something, then tell them "look away fools, you dont know me!!" Or check your manual and turn your mouthpiece on or un mute your mouth piece

This is the second phone and always being asked to speak up. mic diagnostics show that even when you yell the bar does not max out.

Try to increace volume over the phone settings itself. If its already max, then just replace the mic and that's it.

If you need more detail, just let me know.

Best of luck

I hear an echo when speaking my Sony Ericsson Walkman W810i

Well, try to record something onto your mobile and check if the recorded track echos at different instances...If yes, have your mobile speaker checked withthe vendor.. If not, clean up the vicinity of the speaker...
