Nokia 5230 - Why does my device answer an incoming call automatically?

The phone may answer a call automatically if the automatic answer feature is enabled in the device settings and certain accessories are connected to the device. Check the state of the following settings:

  • Menu -> Settings -> Phone -> Accessories -> Headset -> Automatic answer.
  • Menu -> Settings -> Phone -> Accessories -> Wireless car kit -> Automatic answer.
  • Menu -> Settings -> Phone -> Accessories -> Music stand -> Automatic answer.
  • Menu -> Settings -> Phone -> Accessories -> Loopset -> Automatic answer.

If no automatic answer is enabled but the phone seems to occasionally answer a call automatically, check that you are not inadvertently pressing a key while the Anykey answer mode is enabled. To disable the Anykey answering mode, select:

  • Menu -> Settings -> Calling -> Call -> Anykey Answer -> Off.
