1. Check that the little slider on the left side of the phone is set such that no orange dot is visible

2. Use the volume keys on the left side of the phone to check that Ringer is not at 0.

How do i remove the vibrate on my android cherry flare 2x mobile phone. cant see anything on the setting & just to save on my battery life?


Try turning down your volume using the physical buttons until vibration is deactivated.

If it doesn't work here's another way to do this :
  1. Go to your phone settings and click on the sound category
  2. Uncheck vibrate when ringing
  3. Go back and click on Language & Input
  4. Click on Google Keyboard Settings then on Preferences
  5. Uncheck vibrate on keypress
Here you go, vibration shouldn't bother you anymore. But keep in mind that it will not really save your battery life. If you want your battery to last longer, lower your screen brightness and deactivate Data Usage when you don't need it.

Some apps like Juice Defender can help you by doing this automaticaly.

My phone won't ring, only vibrate...help!


Without more specific information as to what model phone you have, I can only provide you with general instructions. Under 'settings' in your phone menu, you should see an option called 'profiles'. Highlight that and click on it, and you should be presented with several different profiles, such as outdoor, meeting, silent, etc. Once there, select one of them and click on it, then 'edit profile'. You'll have a host of different options now, and at least one of them should deal with "notification", where you can change it to 'vibrate and ring' or 'ring only'. Again, I'm not sure of the exact wording, but you'll need to change it to something besides 'vibrate' or 'silent'. When you're finished, click 'done' or some such, then 'apply profile' from the next screen. Make sure you apply the same profile name as the one you just finished editing. Hope this helps! :)

My phone is on vibrate and i can't get it to ring. help


On the side of the phone, there should be up and down arrow buttons. If clicking on the up arrow doesn't activate the sound portion of the ringer. You can go into settings, then sounds, then ring tone, then select the "on" button.

My iphone 3g does not ring, i can hear the ring if i have on ear phones or an ear piece. the signal seems to be okay. the settings seem to be correct.


Dear Dburnett412.

If you can't hear the ringer when there is an incoming call to your iPhone 3G, you may have overlooked whether or not the ring/silent switch is set to silence the ringer. The ring/silent switch is above the volume switch. If you can see orange on this switch, it's set to vibrate. Switch it to ring and you should be all good.
If this doesn't help, you may want to consider resetting the iPhone.

My phone will not ring or play music just vibrates


Your phone's profile might have been set to Silent Mode where it will not ring but vibrates. Make sure the volume is set to Medium or High. Try to change the ringing profile and see if it helps. I have experience this before and I checked everything. Profiles were seem to be right. The only way that I managed to fix the same issue was to reset the phone back to factory settings. But make sure to back up all important files, contacts and other things that you needed before you do the factory reset.
