    My speaker doens't work either, except for the voice prompt menu (whaaddayaknow?). I had my first vx8500 only a year (got in Aug 07), then about a month ago I had to get in replaced. The SD card "reformatted" itself on its own, the alarm would go off at whim, it'd decide when to ring and when not to, turn on and off whenever it pleased. And then when i got it replaced the one i have now is doing the same thing. I haven't even gone back since it started a few days after i recieved the replacement. It's too much of a hassle to go to VZW to get it done every few months. This phone should be pulled off the shelves. I've done nothing to either phone and they just sucked.

I can't hear any sound.And instead of ringing it vibrate.Even I've try to listen song but nothing is happening.

Hi there

First go to your ringer settings to check if the volume is not too low or turned off.

The problem is from your RINGER/SPEAKER,

The ringer/speaker is what brings out sound from your mobile phone when you are called,you receive a text message or you are playing music.

The ringer of your phone is faulty and you need to get a repairer to replace it for you to solve this problem

When I get text messages I cannot turn sound/vibrate off until full ringtone has finished playing (even if I'm looking at the message and replying it continues to play) there a button I can hit to stop...

had the same problem with my moto q9c. if you are using mp3 songs as ringtone it will play the whole song. You can use a app called mp3 trimmer that will let u cut it down to the size you want to have it play should help out .

Setting ringtones as you text message alert tones

You CAN set a song as your text alert tone. Here are the steps:
1- Go to: Settings> Profiles>
2- Select your options (e.g. normal, vibrate and ring, etc....)
3- select Options> Customize (2)>
4- Highlight "Message Sound" and select Options> Customize (2),
5- Then browse to the folder your song or sound is in (e.g. audio) and select the file you want to use and save it.

I noticed that the songs have to be under 30 seconds to use as any type of alert tone for calls or texts.

Hopefully this helps.
