    I'm using on my iPhone a Plantronics corded headset which I very much prefer over my Bluetooth headset for longer phone calls while being at home. However, when this (corded) headset is connected to the phone it only rings through the headset and not through the speakers as well - and I therefore sometimes miss calls when I take off the headset and do not also disconnect it from the phone.

    Is there any way to have the phone ring through the speakers as well when a corded headset is connected?

    Untested, but you could try settings > general > accessibility > incoming calls > Speaker
    Good luck =)

    Thank you! That works very well, at least for the ringing. I will see whether it means that also the calls themselves go to the speaker (instead of the headset only).

    On an Iphone6 its settings> general> accessibility> call audio routing- then select option Speaker. TaDa!

    I know it's been a while since you've posted that, but does it actually work the way you hoped it would? Basically does it ring the phone speaker but the conversation itself would still happen over headphones, or does it just use speakerphone for the conversation (as the option suggests)?

    That said, doesn't the phone ring through the phone speakers even with a headset connected (and that is basically only controlled by the mute switch on the side of the phone)?
