    My phone just started this today, it goes straight to speaker phone when I call someone or answer a call.

    I haven't changed anything to cause this.

    Any ideas?

    Mine started this about a day ago. Thought it was my face, curious to know what's the cause

    Mine did it a few days ago, for a few hours. Stopped on its own. Weird.

    Just noticed it on mine a few days ago too.... What apps have you all downloaded in the past few days of any, I wonder it is an app that's screwing if up.

    haven't had this, but perhaps a full power reset would suffice?
    potential fix:
    pull the battery
    hold down the power button for 30-45seconds seconds to discharge any remaining electricity
    replace battery
    boot up

    just potential. it seems to fix most weird temporary bugs for me.

    Mine has been doing this as well. Now not sure if its completely fixed or not but a few min ago i cut off the option to turn the speaker phone on when flipped and then used my wifes to call mine again and it was normal. So you can try that too

    My phone has started to answer with the speaker on as well. A friend of mine has the HTC Evo (Sprint) and their phone is doing the same thing.

    It seems like the issue may be with HTC.

    HTC? Bug? NAH, impossible. Never happen. Oh, mine does the same thing. No new apps.

    You can try clearing data from the "Phone" app (Menu, Settings, Applications, Manage Applications, Running, Phone). Or same thing with "Dialer".

    Mine did this on Sunday but now it's fine on it's own. Didn't do anything to fix it.

    Sadly apparently turning off the flip to turn on speaker phone didnt fix mine either. This is weird that all of a sudden so many phones would start doing this and nothing has changed. lol

    Wow, very strange. Makes you wonder what common thread could be behind such odd behavior? We have different locations, different carriers, different devices. Aliens?

    Yup aliens took over my TB and made it act crazy. Actually maybe it was Big Brother and they did it so they could hear over a mic hidden everywhere we were because they didnt think about just tapping the line to listen in on our conversation lol.

    As cynical as I can be, highly doubt it. In all seriousness, the only common factor so far seems to be HTC. But, that's based on a limited info posted in this thread and doesn't seem logical or even possible. The only way to truly get to the bottom of the issue would be for everyone experiencing the problem to post exactly what apps they have installed and exactly what they're doing when the problem happens. Then logic could deduce exactly what the root cause may be! Or may be not...

    Well last App I installed was Death Worm but that was a while back. Nothing new has been done since that time. As for what I was doing when it first happened, I was sitting at work and the phone rang. Once I answered it it went straight to speaker phone.

    Add me to the list of this speakerphone weirdness. Mine started doing this today for no reason I can discern.

    Amazing how many all of a sudden have issues.

    Mine does it everytime I pick up a call or make a call.

    It could be an update to an app that recently came out too, not necessarily a brand new app, which make it more difficult to pin point it.

    And I tried to clear data for phone and dialer and first call I made flipped to speaker.

    Well, just to weigh in... it ain't happening to mine. Stock Froyo MR2. I did use the speakerphone today (laying the phone on its face - love that feature!), no issues before or after.
