    Ok, here's a new one to me. I plugged my Jabra Earwave Boom headset into my Treo 650 to make a call, and unplugged it after I hung up from the call. After that, I couldn't get any sound from my Treo. No sound from the earpiece or speaker during a call, no sound from moving around the screens, etc. It did make sound if I changed the ringer volume, and it did ring when someone called me (though I couldn't hear their voice and they couldn't hear mine)

    I tried adjusting the sound preferences and a soft reset, but nothing. I plugged the headset back in, and I could hear all of the sounds fine, unplugged it, and no sound. I tried it a second time, and it worked after that.

    Anybody hear of this kind of problem before? Maybe the headset is't compatible with the phone?

    Please search the forums, this is a very common problem.

    I get this problem once in a while -- guess it's a loose contact in the jack, which makes the phone "think" that the headset is still plugged in. Notice that when you can't hear from the built-in speaker during a call there is no "Spkr-phone" button at the screen.

    The only solution I found is to plug your headset in and then remove it. You can verify if it's back to normal: make a call and check if the "Spkr-phone" button is back.

    I'd love to know if there is a better, permanent solution to this problem though.

    I got this problem today for the first time. I found that a small sharp bang on my desk seem to solve it. In these days of solid state components it is good to know that a good whack still works sometimes

    Well, that's definitely a permanent solution, not sure if it qualifies as a better one though.

    That's what I've concluded. If you use the headset jack at all, it will eventually break. Although this has been said many times before, I took my treo apart, inspected the 6 solder connections for the headset jack (none were broken in my case) and used a needle to push on each of the connections inside the jack. After putting everything back together, it's been working fine. I haven't tried to use the headset jack since.

    ....which is exactly why I'm still using an iPod for headphone listening. My treo is too valueable as a communication device to take the high risk that it will disfunction by moderate to heavy headphone jack use.
