Ringer ID won't work

I got my new phone yesterday. It works fine except for whenever I receive a call, it automatically rings with my default ringer, not whatever ringtone I set to the contact. I bought the ringtones that are set to contacts but the default came with the phone. How do I fix this?

Re: Ringer ID won't work

If this doesnt work then your phone must be possesed.. 
1. Go to your phone book.  Choose a contact.
2. Go to options. Then Edit Contact.
3. Now scroll down all the way to Ringer ID:__ and hit select it.
4. You should see a list of songs  and sounds like silent, Vibe Dot.. etc
5. Scroll down until you want the ringer for that contact.
6. Once you found the ringtone hit select it.  You should now have the ringtone for that contact.  NOW hit "DONE" or it will not work!  If you dont hit done it will use the DEFAULT ringtone provided by the phone.  Also, if you have a memory card in your KRZR k1 and all your songs are on the memory card you wont be able to use it, move them to your phone memory so you can choose it from the list. also can give you free ringtones too.. check it out.

Re: Ringer ID won't work

I had the same problem, and while I had done everything steve mentioned on an earlier post, and also saved both the contact and the ring tone to the phone instead of the sim card, still it wasn't working. So I went to the settings and selected ring styles, then chose loud detail, scrolled down and there is an option to turn on the ringer ID default it's turned off, but of course I didn't know it works.

Re: Ringer ID won't work

Mine was a super easy fix. The manual states that if the phone number is stored on the SIM card, ringer ID will not work. If you've followed the directions in the manual to copy the number to your phone but you can't see that it has been copied go to your Contacts ---> Options ---> VIew. Select "PHONE & SIM CARD" Now you can edit the one with the phone icon and see numbers you've added to your phone as opposed to your SIM card!

The phone won't ring. How do I make it ring? I have gone to settings, sounds, ringer and alerts. When I click on that, the phone makes a ringing sound, but when calls come in, it is silent. Please...

Have you checked the switch on the top left of the phone?
That's the mute switch. Flip it in the Up position and that should fix your problem
If the phones ringing when you test the ringer in the settings, the ringer works. It's probably just muted..
I hope that helps...
Thank you

Follow the below instructions and you can remove the vibrate state. I have included a link to download the phone's manual as a PDF file.

You can assign ringer types to individual Contacts entries,
types of calls, and types of messages.
Downloaded Ringers can be downloaded right to your

Vibrating Ringer alerts you to calls or messages without

allow you to identify incoming calls by the ring.

Sony ericsson elm doest ring or vibrate when a call is comeing through

Hope the ringer and the ******** is enabled. If so there is a possibility that the output amp of the ringer is faulty which can also be linked to the ********.
You can reset the phone after removing the battery and setting it to default settings. If this wont work then it need a careful investigation in the output of the ringer.( test ringer if working)

Ringer and picture Id

The first thing you have to do is go into the settings and tools menu. Once there got to option 6, call settings then ringer ID make sure it's set to on and then do the same for picture ID. That should take care of the problem. Hope that helps!
