When set to vibrate+tone all I get is vibrate.

When I set a notification profile for the phone to vibrate+tone, all I get is vibrating. For a tone, it must be set to tone only. I need it to vibrate and ring at the same time.

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.

Not able to put the Nokia E5 phone in Vibration Mode


When you get to your phone's setting, select profiles. Amongst the list of profiles, determine which of them you want to use to activate your vibrate mode.
When you have done that, scroll to that profile, select 'options', then select 'personalise'.
In the personalise sub-menu, you are allowed to set the features of that mode to your desire.
In the ringing tone, select no tone, in the ringing volume, reduce the volume to zero. When you are asked if you want to set the ringing volume to the maximum, select yes/ok.
In the vibrate option, select yes/vibrate.
In the message tone, select no tone.
For other sounds and tones, select no tone.
When you are done, REMEMBER TO SAVE IT.
Then go back and activate that profile.
It is advisable that the profile you use for this though, is your 'silent' profile.

Hope that was helpful?
Have a wonderful day.

I have the ring tone set to vibrate & the phone does not vibrate. this just recently happened. Use to work fine before.


The vibe motor is inside the phone and can be replaced at a service center. Hopefully the unit has no physical or liquid damage.

Ringer is marked as off on my blackberry bold 9700 and i have no sound


Hi,Sound profiles define how your BlackBerry device alerts you of phone calls, messages, reminders, and browser content.

Your device has a Normal sound profile and six other preloaded sound profiles: Loud, Medium, Vibrate Only, Silent, Phone Calls Only, and All Alerts Off.

By default, some of the settings in the preloaded sound profiles are based on the settings in the Normal sound profile. For example, when you change the ring tone in the Normal sound profile, the ring tone in the Loud, Medium, and Phone Calls Only sound profiles is automatically updated. If you do not want specific settings for a preloaded sound profile to update automatically when you change the corresponding setting in the Normal profile, you can manually change the settings in that preloaded sound profile.

You can create custom sound profiles. When you assign a custom ring tone to a contact, the ring tone is always active and does not change when you switch sound profiles unless you switch to the All Alerts Off sound profile. Call and message notifications for your contacts might be audible even if you switch your sound profile to Silent or Vibrate Only.

You can change, rename, and delete most preloaded sound profiles. You cannot delete the Vibrate Only sound profile and you cannot change, rename or delete the All Alerts Off sound profiles. You can change the Normal sound profile, but you cannot rename or delete it because some of the settings in the other preloaded sound profiles are based on the settings in the Normal sound profile.

Change a sound profile

If you change a setting in a preloaded sound profile that is based on the Normal sound profile, that change will override the corresponding Normal sound profile setting in the preloaded sound profile.

1. On the Home screen, click the Sounds icon.
2. Perform one of the following actions:
* To change the active sound profile, click Set Ring Tones/Alerts.
* To change a custom or preloaded sound profile, click Edit Profiles. Click a profile.
3. Click the application or item that you want to change.
4. Change the notification information.
5. Press the Menu key.
6. Click Save.
7. Press the Menu key.
8. Click Save.

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.
