    Hoping that I'm an ***** - when making or receiving calls I can only hear the other end when I hit the 'speaker' button - they can hear me, apparently, so have I set something inadvertently, or is the internal earhole speaker faulty? Any help would be greatly appreciated! TJ

    From what you described, it seems that the internal ear speaker is faulty. Have you tried turning up the volume, sounds dumb but you may have accidentally set to 0 lol..

    yup, tried that, but thanks anyway! There is a very very faint hum/buzz/white noise but that's all.

    I'm having exactly the same issue. Like you checked the volume etc but all seems fine. Did you determine if it was a faulty handset or is there a setting i can alter?

    I have an 820 also, same problem - the other person can hear me perfectly, however
    I cannot hear the other person unless on speakerphone.
    I checked all my settings - it's not a me problem, it's a phone problem.

    Same problem on four phones already! first an 820, second a replacement 820, then a 928, and now the replacement 928!
    I bought the insurance and the Verizon place wants me to pay for the next one. Screw that I will be getting something else if they push that crap.
