Both on or off the charger, the phone ringer and talk will shut off and it is necessary to unplug the battery, plug back in and put on charger to reset. It's fine for awhile and then unexpectedly will do it again necessatating me to do the same thing again. It's was brand new for Christmas and will do it with a full charge, medium charge, or on the charger.

Go to Settings > SOUND > Silent mode (No sounds except media and alarms). If this is ticked (on), it means umts smartphone alarm will sound even if you make the phone silent. Regarding the loud sound even after reducing ringer volume, no idea for this.
You need the specific battery pack: 5-2814 for the handset. This is a 850 mAh Nickel Metal hydride battery.
When I see a cordless phone that doesn't ring, the first thing I recommend checking is the phone jack and line itself with a second phone. I prefer to use a corded handset with a new phone cord to check for dial tone. If no dial tone at the jack, check for dial tone at the service entry box. If you have no dial tone at the service box, contact your provider. If it's only a problem at the jack, you will need to check your inside wiring.
To check the base, try a new cable (RJ-11) (double check the power as well).
To check the handset, first make sure the handset is fully charged (16 hours) and that the battery is fully installed. Does the handset beep when the Talk button is pressed? Next check that the handset ringer software is on. With the phone off (not in the talk mode), press the Mute/menu OK button. Use the Caller ID/volume (up/down) buttons to get to the Handset setup menu. Press the Mute/Menu OK button to access the menu. Use these buttons to check the Ringer Volume (should be on) and Ringer Tone. Press Mute/Menu OK to save the settings at each sub-menu. Check that the Do Not Disturb function is not on - this toggles with the Do Not Disturb button and should be noted on the handset screen when on.
If you have multiple extensions on the phone line, try unplugging some of them.
1/15/10 To fix this issue: 1.Unplug the Unit 2.Unplug the Phone Cord 3.Disconnect the Battery from the Handset 4.Wait 10-15 minutes… and put back together in Reverse Order 5.Connect the Handset Battery 6.Plug-in the Phone Cord 7.Plug-in the Unit
The Ringer ID, Light Up ID, Picture ID and Custom
Ringer settings cannot be assigned via the software, nor backed up,
restored or transferred to another handset.
3. The USB connection cannot be plugged in while
the phone is being charged - it is also physically impossible to do so.
Kind of dumb given the USB connection sucks a lot of battery power.
4. In fact the USB should plug in to the
base/charger so the phone is instantly connected (like a PDA) once
docked, with two-way synchronisation. This is not as important though,
as #2 above.
5. It is possible (as I learnt the hard way) to
inadvertently wipe out the existing phone book and all its hard fed
Ringer ID, Light Up ID, Picture ID and Custom Ringer settings merely by
attempting to add new entries thru the software without first
retrieving the existing entries from the phone. On the positive side,
re-sending the same entries does not overwrite the already set up
Ringer ID, Light Up ID, Picture ID and Custom Ringer settings.
Hit the up or down arrow keys several times. (either key will work) and the ringer will rotate through Ringer off - Ringer low - Ringer high... one set will be a steady ring, the other set will be a warble ring. This works on the phone made for RadioShack with 5.8 GHz on the front and Cat. No. 43-155 under the battery in the battery compartment.
Have you tried going into your menu to see if the ringer is shut off. Depends on your phone, but some of them you can push the # and it will take you to your ringer volume, maybe you have the phone shut off for the ringer.
