Incoming callers on speakerphone

Every time i answer the phone, the caller is on speakerphone for about 5 seconds. After 5 seconds then it goes normal, I just returned my 1st phone for doing this, they said it was a defect. but now i've had this new phone for about 2 weeks and it started doing the same thing again!

    I have EXACTLY the same problem with my BB 8110 going on speaker phone for approx the first 2 seconds of an incoming call. I tried the suggested solution of removing the battery and holding the power on button for 10 secs. Seems to have worked. Yay!

    I have the same problem! when I answer incoming calls the phone automatically puts them on Speakerphone! It's embarassing in public and I need a solution! Is this a phone defect?

    the phone will ring sometimes, and when i answer its on speaker phone! not always but sometimes, and its very very annoying especially when i am at school in the library in the computer lab and everyone looks at me and hears whatever the person is saying!
    also, sometimes i don't receive texts, texts get deleted, call log gets deleted even before i see my missed calls! i have had this phone for less than a month and i hate it already!

Answering Machine Problem

You have not configured the phone. If you do not set the number of rings before switching to the answering machine, the phone rings ten times then goes to the answering machine.

I have a Uniden D3097. It is ringing only once on incoming calls. I have called from a different phone and it rings several times for the caller then goes to a generic VM not the VM I set up.

By any chance do you have call forwarding turned on? That would account for the single ring and the unfamiliar voicemail. Call forwarding is a service provided by your phone company or cable voice company which allows you to transfer incoming calls to another phone number, such as a cell phone. It's usually activated by pressing a key sequence (such as *72) and entering the number of the phone that you want to receive your calls. It's easy to turn it on and then forget to turn it off. You can turn it off with another key sequence, such as *73. Contact your phone company for the correct code.

Incoming call does not show in caller id window all the time. sometimes it simply says "incoming call" without identifying the caller. other times is works proberly.

Caller ID information is sent after the first full ring. If the call is answered too soon, the caller ID information may not have been sent yet. Some of the many and varied networks do not send caller ID information. In this case you may notice that caller ID is missing only on calls from certain callers. Occasionally bad data is sent, causing your phone to reject it.

Hi i have lost my user guide for my telstra 8200 phone & want to know how to answer a second call while you talking on line 1

To answer an incoming call whilst you are on the phone:
Press and hold the "2" button. Your first caller is put on hold and you can talk to your second caller.
To revert back to the original caller, press and hold the "2" button again.
