How to get ring tone back after LG cellphone has gone silent

My 88 year old father, who lives in another state, has somehow turned off the ringer on his LG cell phone. He cannot find the manual. Can you tell us what to do to get the phone to ring again (it lights up when someone calls, but that is all). Thanks for any assistance you can give us.

My KX-TG4031 does not ring. I only hear the messages when someone phones. How do I turn on the ring tone?e


Open menu and scroll to see tones and ring volume. you can set this up to a desired level as it will ring to indicate the level. The volume also can be pushed up or down on the control pad. If this is not working there is fault on the ringer circuit. check if the ringer is switched off or put to silent.

How do I turn off the ringer to 'no' volume ?


SiSi Si As you have not mentioned the make and model of your phone I will have to be general in my answer.
In SETTINGS all phones have an option of Ring Tones and then Volume of Ring Tones. Here you must select 0 or Silent. And you ringer volume will be reduced to nil.

Sir, nokia model 2626 Ring tone sound not coming when incoming calls comes speaker option is function all ringtone sounds comes only vibration please solve it thank u


The ringer is gone bad. Go to service center and just ask them to change the ringer. It will cost less than 100 rupees.
Make sure the phone profile is not in silent or in vibration only...

One of my handsets is set to silent and i cant remember how to get the ringer back


Because you didn't give your phone's brand and model number just try the below listed tips.

1. Press the # key for 3-5 seconds
2. Make sure that the volume is turned up
3. Go to Menu--Settings--Ring tones--Voice Calls--Select your ring tone--OK

One of these will give you an audible ring.

Got a new Blackberry Storm and my ringer won't ring


Check either your profile or under "Options" -> "Sounds and Ringer Tones" and see if your volume is set to "Silent". Change volume to something other than "Silent" and see if your ringer works then.
