    Warning Warning Speaker Will Die

    Advertisement



    Heads up WARNING as lots of Pearls having been going down (mine included) like crazy. Don't know if its a hardware or software issue or even a virus issue but what happens is the internal speaker for hearing phone calls will not work. People can hear you talk but you cannot hear them...until you put on the speakerphone then all is good. But you won't be having a private call.

    I googled the issue right after mine died (couple days ago). Had to call T-Mobile. Go through TONS of their monkey tricks like redownloading the OS, master reset, wipe phone etc. before they will send you a replacement phone. Also, they want to charge you shipping but the rep let it slip they had a rash of phone calls in the last day or so with this problem so shipping is on the house for me this time. They are tough even though I have been customer for a very long time.

    Ok so don't be surprised if this happens to you and you are not alone.

    I had a few pearls and never had this issue even thou I heard a lot about it. Some guys actually dared to try to fix their own pearls.

    Re: Warning Warning Speaker Will Die

    Here's a thread from a different forum where someone fixed their speaker. Sounds like the connection was just loose. Maybe this could help others, but should only try it if your warranty is already up.

    EDIT: Woops, Different Speaker

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I didn't have this problem on my first Pearl. It flat out died after an upgrade and other problems. I went one ahead of TMobile and did my own troubleshooting for 2 days before even calling. I don't mind paying for the shipping.

    Does this seem to be only with the TMO version? Mine is Cingular and I haven't heard f any problems like that.
