    whenever someone calls my phone, the ring tone is very very low, i only hear it when the phone is on my desk or in my hand, not even in my pocket! Ive tried every thing on the phone, but no matter what the volume will not go up.

Just_Bobz is correct and incorrect at the same time...

Not all blackberry curves are set up the same nor do they all have the same "theme" (layout)

For instance the T-mobile Blackberry Curve (8120) has a different theme and therefore the sound option is not in the upper right hand corner like the Alltel Blackberry Curve (8330) default theme.

My suggestion is to find the volume control icon on your curve (or the volume themes as I like to call them). When you click on the speaker icon you will have the options for the different volume themes such as Loud, Vibrate, Quiet, Normal, Phone Only, and Off. Click on whichever theme you will be using on a regular basis to activate it.

** Another area where Just_Bobz is incorrect… just because you have put the volume theme on Loud does NOT mean that the phone is on its loudest possible sound setting!!

If you go back into the volume themes, all the way at the bottom there is an Advanced option.. If you click on Advanced, highlight which ever theme says active next to it and click your trackball to open it ... you will then have the option to change the option for any and all alerts on the phone (ie email, phone, mms, sms, bbm. ect.) Under each of the different options there is ANOTHER sound option for low, medium, high, ect. (and there is an in and out of holster setting

SOO..

Just because your volume theme is set to Loud.. does not mean that the phone is truly set to loud!!

The volume control is on the top right side. But in order to set the volume control you need to be on an active call...then you can see the volume bar on the screen and turn it up.

You shouldn't be mad at your own deficencies. The volume control is in the upper right corner. Turn it up.

My suggestion is to boost your ringer volume with Bigasoft BlackBerry Ringtone Maker.

The downside is the handy solution is not free; it costs only $9.95 and well worth it.
No More Missed Call on BB.

No sound Blackberry


Check your profile settings and make sure that it is not set to phone only or all alerts off. If it is set correctly double check your ringtones and make sure they are set for sound. If those options are there then do a battery pull. If it still doesn't work then I would do a search on the crackberry.com website. It is a great site for all things blackberry.

VOICENOTE TO PERSONALIZED RINGTONE ON BB CURVE 8330?? PLZ HELP!


Voice Notes to Ringtone.

If the voice note is stored on the device memory:

Go into the Media icon. Hit the BlackBerry® (menu) button and select ‘Explore’. Select ‘device memory/home/user/voice notes’. Highlight the voice note and hit the menu button. Select ‘Copy’. Hit ‘Up’ twice. Highlight the ringtones folder. Hit the menu button and click on ‘Copy Into’.


If the voice note is stored on the media card:

Go into the Media icon. Hit the BlackBerry® (menu) button and select ‘Explore’. Select ‘Media Card/BlackBerry®/voice notes’. Highlight the voice note and hit the menu button. Select ‘Copy’. Hit ‘Up’ twice. Highlight the ringtones folder. Hit the menu button and click on ‘Copy Into’.

Now the voice note will be available as a ringtone and can be assigned to a specific individual.

Blackberry curve won't pair with my bluetooth headset


Hello,

Try the following. Hope this helps.

Okay,


1. Go into "Media" on your BlackBerry and enable incoming files (Menu-->Receive using bluetooth).
2. Find the file on your friend's device that you wish to send, and beam the said file accordingly.
2a. If you have not "paired" (created a friendship between) the two devices before, you will need to do this first...
2b. One of the devices will ask for a PIN code first and on this device you need to create a four-digit, numeric password that can be anything you like.
2c. On the second device, enter the four-digit, numeric password you created and follow the simple, on-screen prompts on both devices to complete the pairing (you can also pair the devices in advance by going into Menu-->Set Up Bluetooth).
2d. Depending on the devices being used and the time taken to complete the pairing, you may need to re-send the file (go back to step 1), otherwise, continue below...
3. When your friend's device tries to send you the file, your BlackBerry should ask you to name the file and where to save it; if you have not set the device as "trusted" in the bluetooth settings (Options-->Bluetooth-->your friend's device), you may need to approve the file transfer first though.
4. The file should now be on your device.


Note: by default, all
* Pictures are saved into /Device Memory/home/user/pictures or /Media Card/BlackBerry/pictures if you have a memory card.

* Sounds (including songs) are saved into /Device Memory/home/user/ringtones/ or /Media Card/BlackBerry/ringtones/ if you have a memory card.

* Videos are saved /Device Memory/home/user/videos or /Media Card/BlackBerry/videos if you have a memory card.

In other words, unless you specify somewhere else in step 3, this is where you will find your file.


And remember, your incoming file transfer WILL NOT WORK UNLESS YOU FIRST "PAIR" (CREATE A FRIENDSHIP BETWEEN) THE DEVICES, go into Media and CLICK MENU-->RECEIVE USING BLUETOOTH!!!
