    Ok I've search and can not find the solution to getting the speakerphone off when making calls and receiving. Ive done the battery pull and turn off voice mail speaker but still no luck, this just started happening a couple days ago.

    Mine started doing the same thing, at the same time too. I can get it off of speakerphone, but I have to do it on every call? Maybe a bad proximity sensor?

    there have been five or six threads on this but not one resolved post. some have fixed it by going into speaker phone settings and toggling the speaker phone option. a few by hard reset the phone. someone mentioned an app that caused the issue so look at any apps you may have installed just prior to the issue.

    in the end if no other methods fix it, take it in to a sprint repair center. reportedly if they can't fix it they order a new phone.

    I'm having a similiar issue. Speakerphone defaults on all outgoing calls. I can toggle it off when i make the call, but why is it the default?

    I'm curious, but Ive also found my phone randomly in Car Mode. First off, I have no idea how to set this, but I wonder if it has anything to do with the speakerphone defaulting. Has this happened to any of you?

    I brought mine into Bestbuy and they tried doing all of the resets and it still had this problem. They sent it in to get repaired. The salesman also noticed that the pins in the charging port look mangled, maybe it's grounding some of the pins and putting it into car mode. This would explain why it defaults to speakerphone?
    I guess I'll have to wait the two weeks to maybe find something out.

    Yea, I found another thread where someone brought their phone into a Sprint Tech and they said it was a known issue where the Car Mode sensor goes bad. This causes outgoing/incoming calls to default to speakerphone, and if you have headphones plugged in, you cannot control the media volume.

    I'll be bringing mine in sometime this week. Yay.

    The way I was able to get it off of car mode was by holding the power button down till the power menu came up then I selected airplane mode then I shut the phone then put it back on then I got it out of airplane mode then put it on silent mode then back to normal. I am not sure if silent mode is needed but my speaker phone does not come on anymore when I make a call. Hopefully everyone has the same luck I did.

  9. The same two things were happening to me but strangely hasn't happened in about two weeks. Ive also found my phone randomly in Car Mode and defaulting to speakerphone mode.

    I've heard spraying canned air into the microUSB port can fix it, anyone tried that?

    Hey guys,new here,i found this thread while searching for the same issue of the speakerphone always on when making a call which started a couple dqys ago. While reading i remembered that i had tested the dock mode and that it could have something to do with this. The dock mode icon was still on in the notification area at the top of the screen. I went into the dock mode settings and unchecked auto launch and auto connect,then made a test call,and it seems to have cleared the problem. Hopefully this will be of use to someone having the same issue.

    I ad this problem for ages but finally fixed it by cleaning the micro USB port and also making sure the charging plug was not pushed into far. I think at one point it got jammed in too hard and left the phone thinking it was always in a car port or something. I have prevented the problem from re-occurring by being very careful whenever I insert the cord.
