    I can't figure out how I turned it on, but I can't turn it off. It's not in tty mode, it just has that hearing aid icon on the screen when I call someone. Anyone know how to turn it off?

    What does the icon look like? Show a screen shot of it.

    I don't know what it is you are talking about but if there is a hearing aid mode it would be under
    Settings> accessibility> hearing

    This the icon I'm talking about above the "add call". It has an ear thing with )) after it.

    On the phone screen settings menu, there is a setting for "use extra volume for calls" which may be checked.

    Thanks for the reply, I made sure the "use extra volume for calls" wasn't checked.

    Thanks for replying. I searched in there, and couldn't find anything to turn that off.

    In your phone app, if you go to My call sound, then My call sound settings, this is what activates that icon. If you put the settings to Off, the icon will go away.

    It's not actually for hearing aids.

    It was nice to be able to go right to the site and turn off the hearing aid box due to your help. Thanks.

    Hi all

    I have been reading this thread because unlike the original post I would like to know what are the benefits of using the hearing aid mode since I wear on both ears.

    Does anybody know what this option is for and if it'll work with any hearing aid.

    Regards.

    Found this thread as I was also looking at enabling hearing aid features on my phone.

    Depending on the model you can either have an option to increase the volume, enter into tcoil mode, or it can attempt to help filter out background noise from the caller.

    Good luck with your new aids. I myself am on week 3 of my first.
