CHANGES PROFILE on its own; callers can't hear me, and I can't hear them

When I turn off and on my phone, it automatically switches profiles to "port. handsfree", thus disabling my ability to hear/speak without some sort of handsfree device plugged in (I can also use speakerphone, and it will work). I have to manually go into my profile and change it back to normal in order for me to answer the phone regularly (With the sound coming from the handset, and not the handsfree device). NOW my phone does this all the time, as well as not even allow me to hear my caller, or have them hear me. I tried to make a call, I could see that it was connecting and ringing, but I couldnt hear anything. Even though the handsfree icon (that says I am in a profile other than "normal") is no longer there, I still cannot hear anything unless I put it on speakerphone or with a handsfree device. WHen I power on, it starts to play the startup music, but cuts off as if the speakers go out. I can't listen to any of my MP3s, or recorded videos, however I can still hear the shutter sound when i take a picture. How can I fix my phone so that I can hear people speak on it???

Change Ringtone Automatically when charging

The BlackBerry gives few profiles to choose from; e.g. Normal, Loud, Quiet, Vibrate.... my recommendation would be to configure each profile separately and just enable/disable the profile you like when you enter/exit your car...

The phone itself is not capable to switching the profile on its own once it is plugged in to your car charger...

Hope this was helpful...

When I receive a call it rings only twice my end altho the caller hears about 10 rings. I often cannot get to the phone in time to answer and would like to increase the number of rings to 10.

Your profile may be set to a vibrate and tone setting. Therefore, you wouldnt hear the vibrating.

Go to Profiles then scroll to Advanced, select the profile that you are using. Scroll down and select Phone.

Where it says Out of the Holster, change the option to Tone and the Volume to Medium or High.

Bluetooth headset problem

There are two types of profiles that Bluetooth headsets uses. One, it is called the A2DP (Advanced Digital Profile) and second is called the Headset profile (Mono).

The A2DP is used for listening music that's transmitted from the phone to the headset.
The Headset profile is used for calling. But the A2DP can also be used for calling if the phone or the headset support it.

If one of your device (either the phone or the headset) doesn't support it, then that could be the reason why you couldn't hear the sound.

If both devices support A2DP, make sure that your headset is connected to the phone via the A2DP profile.

You need to refer to the phone manual to see if it's supported by your phone and how to connect to it.

Hope I explained it properly. Have a great day!

Volume of my phone isn't loud as it was earlier inspite of full

It could be a hardware fault or profile settings.

If you check your profile settings, by going to profile, scroll to the bottom of the submenu and select advanced.

In the next menu - select your active profile and the edit option

Then select one of the features such as phone, you would previously have associated with loud tone and check both out of and in holster settings for volume.

Nokia e50 wont notify me when i recieve a new text message

Hello there! thanks for using!

Try the following instructions, to personalize your Nokia E50!
Warning: In the offline profile you cannot make or receive any calls, or use other features that require network
coverage. Calls still may be possible to the official emergency number programmed into your device. To make calls,
you must first activate the phone function by changing profiles. If the device has been locked, enter the lock code.

Select Menu > Tools > Profiles.
You can adjust and customize the ringing tones, alert tones, and other device tones for different events, environments, or caller
To customize a profile, scroll to the desired profile in the list, and select Options > Personalise.
Define the following settings:
Ringing tone — Select a ringing tone from the list, or select Tone downloads to open a bookmark folder containing a list of
bookmarks for downloading tones using the browser. To listen to the selected tone, select Play. If you have two alternate
phone lines in use, you can specify a ringing tone for each line.
Say caller's name — Activate the text-to-speech ringing tone feature. When someone from your contacts list calls you, the
device sounds a ringing tone that is a combination of the spoken name of the contact and the selected ringing tone.
Ringing type — Select how you want the ringing tone to alert.
Ringing volume — Select the volume level of the ringing tone.
Message alert tone — Select a tone for received text messages.

Speakerphone when answering blackberry pearl 8100

After taking out the battery for a couple of minutes, fixed this on my Pearl

I have a borowed Blackberry Pearl. I can't figure out how to turn my audible ringer "ON!" Among many other issues but, I can't hear when my phone has an incoming call! Help please?

Go to profiles and make sure it's not in "quiet" or "vibrate" mode. If it is, choose either normal or loud.

If normal or loud are already selected you may need to go to advanced settings (at the bottom of the profile list).

In the advanced menu, click on the active profile, then choose phone. Make sure it is set for "tone" or "vibrate + tone" in both the out of holster and in holster sections.

Can't hear without handsfree, beeps

Hmm..did you try the customized profile so you can set it on the loudest mode? and also have you noticed if your phone makes any other noice like when you move around the menu or type a text messege? does it play music on the speaker? Try all possible ways you can think of that makes the phone create sound as a response. And last thing to do would be a reset.
  • Go to menu
  • Phone settings
  • Reset settings
Try this to bring the phone to factory settings, make sure you back up your information, like your contacts before, and good luck.!

I need help with volume

You may have selected a profile that does not alert you audibly when you receive messages. You may select a different profile, edit the current profile or create a completely new profile. I'm attaching instructions for creating a profile and editing would be similar except you would select a profile then select "edit" for the menu. Be use you have "tone" or "vibrate and tone" selected and that the volume is not on mute. Always save your changes.

Create notification profiles
1.In the profiles list, click the trackwheel.
2.Click New Profile.
3.Type a name for the profile.
4.Click an item.
5.Click Edit.
6.Set how you want to receive notification for that item.
7.Click the trackwheel.
8.Click Save.
9.Click the trackwheel.
10.Click Save.

To turn on tones when pressing the keys, follow the following instructions:

Turn on tones when pressing keys
In the device options, click Screen/Keyboard. Set the Key Tone field to On. Click the trackwheel. Click Save.
