    My friend's 700wx (my old device) has been running like a champ w/ the Testing 5 ROM....

    About a week ago she said it didn't ring or make sounds. Then it did. Then it didn't. IE, It was kind of intermittent.

    I noticed once when fiddling w/ it that tapping near the speaker made it work again!

    Pretty sure the problem isn't software related. Did a hard reset... no joy.

    So I get out the Torex #5 and commence surgery. The contacts for the speaker seem ok. They are actually little springs that contact the sub-board on the back of the phone. Thorough cleaning w/ a little brush, and reassemble. No extra pieces! Still No joy.

    Gonna try good cleaning of the headphone jack. Any ideas? Anyway to get a new speaker and see if that works?

    From what I've read here, this is probably the problem.

    I've seen people report that simply inserting and removing a headset plug repeatedly sufficiently "cleaned" the switch (or unstuck it) to return to normal function of the speaker.

    It was the speaker!

    Amazingly it's the exact same part as the 650. Swapped it out and it works!

    Back in business...

    I just turned my phone back in for doing the same thing. It was driving me nuts trying to figure out why.

    Anyone know where i might be able to get a new speaker? Both of them would be great! That is the only thing wrong with my 700wx after almost 2 yrs, besides cell phone reception isn't very good.
