Re: Tell us your story

The 8830 model is about five years old... passed the end of life time a couple years ago.


1. check and see if you can use the voice recorder on the device, to determine if the handset microphone works at all?


2. Keypads often go bad due to moisture issues, even just being in a high humidity environment, as in left on a bathroom counter during a hot steamy shower, or even extreme humid weather.


I doubt your 8830 has any warranty left on it, as it is not sold in India, and you must have bought the device used.
