    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).
