you'd call Cingular; unless you're on a BES and your company is paying RIM for direct support (and if they do only certain ppl can call them)

Default Try this

For a hard reset, pop the battery out for 30 seconds.

Also, try to see if the speakerphone works.

Others have had this problem and the conclusion was a faulty unit.

Some headsets have a mute feature, have you checked if your's is muted? I've read another thread with this same problem, try searching that one out, maybe they came up with a better solution.

Did you try turing off bluetooth before you made the call from the hadnset?

I did this same thing at first and realized that my bluetooth headset, whoch was still turned on, was where all the sound was going/coming from.

Which BT headset is it? Anyway to test the headset with another phone?

Try another headset. If it acts the same or similiar then you can be pretty sure it's something with the phone.

Edit: Misread the problem. But, it could still be the phone.

While making a call, click the trackwheel. In the menu there will be an option to activate handset or something like that. That will transfer the call back to the handset and not the earpiece.
