Answering the phone defaulting to headset

This just started to happen, whenever I answer a call it defaults to "Headset" instead of the regular "Handset".  Why is that and how can I fix it?

Hello kidboy


I have run in to this in the past and the few times I have come across it was moisture that go into the headset jack that was causing the issue.  Did the device get damp or wet?  Have you tried plugging in a headset and removing it?  You may want to try and dry out the device a bit if it did get damp.


Let me know how it works out for you!

Re: Answering the phone defaulting to headset

Mine is doing the same thing... Nothing to do with moisture... Is there not a default setting option that can be selected?  I am almmost positive that with the previous Official software release 4.75 that there was such a setting... VERY ANNOYING!  Tried a battery pull and plugging and unplugging head set... turning off... charging... nothing...

If you are going to take the time to respond... take the time to actually understand that to which you are responding.
