    Yeah, me too...ringtone adjusted to max on all adjustments I can find and still can't hear it unless the room is perfectly silent and it's within a half meter from me. You would think a device this expensive WOULD WORK!

I just got the same blackberry, and have been fooling around with it to try and get it to ring.

Here's what you do:
1. Go to "Applications" and select "Media"
2. Select "Ring Tones"
3. Select "View"
4. Select "Preloaded Ring Tones"
5. Select "View". You will get a list of ring tones, organized alphabetically by 3 prefixes: "Alarm", "Notifier" and "Ringer".
6. Scroll down to the ones that start with "Ringer".
7. Select one. Select "Play". Hit the "Exit" button if you want to stop it, or let it finish and then hit "Exit".
8. Do this until you find one you like.
9. At the same menu that has "Play", scroll down to "Set as Ring Tone"
10. Click to select. Click again to confirm.
11. Exit-exit-exit until you're back at your main screen.
12. Call yourself from another phone to check it out. You'll find that the device will vibrate first for a bit, then ring with your new tone.

Enjoy! Hope this works for you - it did for me.

Ringer is set at max but is hard to hear


If the ringout volume is very low, then try not to select a soft, silent or low ringing tone. Try to choose a ringing tone that is loud so that you can hear your phone ringout.
Hope that was helpful?

Hi how can i increase volume on my blackberry 9000. Even on high volume setting there is no ringtone sometimes


Hi there

On your Blackberry menu, there's an icon that resembles a person's head that represents profiles. In the profiles menu, you can select the volume for the notifications you receive when messages or calls come in. Choose "Loud" to hear all notifications at an equal volume, equivalent to the maximum output possible.

Some ring tones just remain less audible than others even when they're set to maximum volume. If you've tried increasing the volume of your notifications but still can't hear the ringer sometimes, try downloading a custom ringtone from the Blackberry App Store.

When selecting a custom ringtone, choose something distinctive and hard to ignore. When previewing the tone, determine whether it seems louder or easier to hear than your existing tone. Download more than one tone and experiment throughout the day.

After you've downloaded custom ringtones, set your phone to use these ringers by going into the applicable notification profile. Select "Show Tunes" and open the media folder where you've chosen to save your downloaded tones. Select the ringer you want and click "Set as Phone Tune."

I have a blackberry 8330 with no manual and my ringtones do not ring long enough and are not loud enough. Help.


I'm not sure if all berry's are the same but this is what mine does:

You can set the ring tone volumes under the "Profile" icon. When you set it to something like loud you can click the profile icon again and go to advanced and change the settings for that profile.

I have a blackberry 8520 and i dont know how to change my sms text message ringtone...


Hi, i just got myself one of these phones recently and i'm still getting used to hit
Here is how you change your SMS ringtone

Go to PROFILES
You will then see a list starting with Blackberry Messenger Alert and Blackberry Messenger New Message etc etc
Scroll down to SMS
Press enter(touchpad)
Then you will see all the options you can change
Scroll down to the Ring Tone and highlight the name of the tone
Press enter
Now you can select from any tone that you have put on the phone or any pre-loaded tone
If you want a pre-loaded tone they are all on this page
If you want one of your own loaded tone select browse
You will then have a choice of two...select Media cards where your own ringtones should be
Press touchpad and you can select any tone from there
Once selected it will bring you back to another screen which you then need to press the back button(right of the touchpad)
Then all you have to do is SAVE

Good luck

Message tone


settings-ring styles-loud detail/soft detail/vibe detail-inbox then scroll down and find a ringtone. while in "loud detail" scroll down and make sure the Ringer IDs are ON. now you can personalize every callers ringtone and message tone.

you cant use recorded files as ringtones. they dont give you the option so that you are forced to pay for them but try this website www.myxer.com you can make your own ringtones then send them to you phone via. your home computer.
