Calls can only be heard on speaker or through headset

Since I performed the last software up date a couple of days ago I can only hear calls through the speaker or through the plugged in headset.  I've tried resetting but the problem persists.

Any suggestions?

Re: Calls can only be heard on speaker or through headset

Hi and welcome to the forums


You wrote you tried resetting the device, did you use a hard reset? Try that first.


Click on the options icon>click on device> select device and status.

Once you reach the status screen type the word test to start the Device Self Test App.

You can select the test relating to the speaker and a log file will be created.

If your device passes the test I would suggest wiping the device using the the factory reset option and loading a fresh copy of the device OS you upgraded to. Make sure you do a full backup of the device using the Desktop Manager before wiping the device.
