From the desktop you choose profiles (speaker icon) in brackets you will see your chosen profile, yours sounds like off. Press tracker wheel to choose and you have the pop menu will a list of different profiles - I would choose normal for now (you can always change this at a later date) and it will change to (active)

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."

My iphone keeps buzzing and shows an icon of the ringer with a slash thru it it wont actually ring, just vibrates altho the ringer is on

"An icon of the ringer with a slash through it"?....Usually that means that the ringer is OFF.If you're sure that the ringer is in fact ON , then check your profile.If it's in the Silent or Meeting profile, the ringer is switched off by default and it goes to vibrate.

Got a new Blackberry Storm and my ringer won't ring

Check either your profile or under "Options" -> "Sounds and Ringer Tones" and see if your volume is set to "Silent". Change volume to something other than "Silent" and see if your ringer works then.

You would go to the speaker icon where you can change the mode of the phone from vibrate to loud and etc. once there and you have the profile you want enabled go to the bottom of the list and click advance once in there click that profile again then go down to SMS and click that and then itll say ring tone you can choose any from that list or you could browse the blackberry and pick a song you like. I hope this helps.

Verizon 8330 does not ring

1. Check and make sure you're call forwarding settings are correct. Normally people have it set to ring for 20 seconds, before forwarding to voicemail. Your cell phone company should be able to walk you through what their default setting recommendation is.

2. Is the call making it to the device, but the ringer isn't turned on? Does the screen show INCOMING CALL? If it does, check your PROFILES and find out which one is active and see if the ringer for that profile is set to SILENT.

3. If the call never makes it to your BB, your internal antenna is bad - take it back.. or you get no signal where your at. Basic troubleshooting for the BB should be to pull out the battery. Turning it off completely by removing the battery - should reset any bugs that hose it up.
