Re: When set to vibrate+tone all I get is vibrate.
I had the identical problem, and was about to replace my unit. When I popped the SIM card and battery back in, the problem was solved. Basically a hard reset. Don't know whether it made a difference, but I left it out overnight. Hope this works for you.

To silence your device In the profile list, perform one of the following actions: • To receive LED notification only, click Quiet. • To receive vibrate notification only, click Vibrate. • To turn off all notification, including notification profile exceptions and LED notification, click Off.
ok i dont know if this solves the problem for good, but i do know that it solves temperately. I went to phone settings and set the ring tone profile to vibrate. then i kept pressing the play button until the squeaking went away. It seems as though once the little moter in the phone goes at a constant speed it stops squeeking. the squeaking stops for a good while and is better than nothing. Someone tell me if this works for them. thanks ;]
Try the following instructions, to personalize your Nokia E50! Profiles 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 groups. 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.

The instruction given in the user's guide are WRONG, which infuriated me. To perform a hard reset, hold down the power button and turn the phone off. Then, while holding volume down and the center button, turn the phone back on. It will give you the hard reset prompt immediately. Follow the instructions. I hope I saved you the stress I went through.
Check to see if you have enabled notifiers for coming in and out of cellular coverage, data coverage, bluetooth, etc. I disabled these notifications.
Otherwise try switching the ringing profiles and see if it continues. If it stops after switching profiles, then you know it is something in your selected ring profile.
If it continues, try resetting the device. I would recomend downloading the Blackberry Desktop software to backup your phone. After resetting the phone, see if it vibs and rings randomly (note: no not restore the backup yet).
If it still does, try to update the Blackberry OS software on the phone from the same place you downloaded the BB Desktop software or your cell provider. If it stops, then restore your backed up data. If it starts up again, then it's a setting in your old config.
These are some of the things the cellular provider would do. Hope this helps!
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.
