    Default Anyone have a solution to this CAR MODE problem

    Every time I place a charger in the micro USB port, my phone goes into Car Mode... I can exit Car Mode through the drop down bar, but it leave my phone is a silent state... no ring tone... nothing... although I have looked at every way to turn the sound back on... phone indicates it is on and loud, but no sound.... Car Mode has left it in that state....

    Any solutions... can't seem to remove the Car Panel app, tried an app called No Dock but the phone is still silent until a reboot... but as soon as it is hooked up to a charger, silent again. This makes the phone almost useless to me... Ken Kay

    This is the proven answer. You have a small amount of dust or fluff in your dock port, this shorts out a connector or two. The phone thinks it is connected to a car dock all the while and goes into loudspeaker mode etc. Close the phone and remove battery. clean out the dock port carefully with a thin wooden toothpick, then blow out any remaining dust. You will be surprised by the gunk in your dock A tiny spray of WD40 also helps. it fixed my problem immediately
