Can't get the phone out of vibrate mode

I cannot get my cell phone to ring, it stays in vibrate. The only options on the screen are quiet mode, vibrate all or silent all. I have tried holding the # key down and all that does is switch between vibrate or silent.

Re: can't get the phone out of vibrate mode

I have read the manual for your Samsung SGH-d357 and you need to set the ALERT TYPE, this allows you to set the alert default. Choose from Melody, Vibrate, or Vibrate then Melody You need to choose Melody. This will ring but not vibrate. In case you were missing the manual it is here:-

BlackBerry Tour: How to make it ring and vibrate for incoming calls

You can customize your BlackBerry Tour so that either it rings when you get a phone call, or it vibrates -- or both. To make your phone both ring and vibrate when you get a call, go to your BlackBerry's sounds and ring tone options, which you can get to by either of the following two ways:

#1 - Use the trackball to go to the sound icon in the upper left corner of the main screen and click on it, then toward the bottom of the list that appears, select Set Ring Tones/Alerts, then select Phone.

#2 - On the main screen, press the BlackBerry button (the one with the seven dots) to take you to your Home folder. Scroll down to the Options folder (it's usually toward the bottom, and it has a wrench icon) and click on it, then select Sounds and Ring Tones.

From this scren you can select the ring tone that you want and adjust the ring tone volume. Then scroll down to Vibration and set it for On.

There is also an option for Vibrate with Ring Tone. If you turn this option on, the phone will both ring and vibrate at the same time when you get a call. If you turn it off, the phone will vibrate first, then ring. Either way, you'll get the ring and the vibration -- it's just a matter of whether they happen together or not. To see the difference between the two options, use the "Try it" option at the bottom of the screen.

When you've made the selections that you want, exit out of the options screen, but be sure to choose Save rather than Discard to save your changes.

I have a nokia 6275 cell phone but he can't do vibrate in any mode

Go to profiles, select a profile you wish to use, click on personalise. For the vibrate option, you can select 'vibrate, then ring', if you want it to vibrate before it rings.
Select 'rythm', if you want it to be vibrating as it rings .
If you need a profile where it only vibrates without sound, most prefarably in the silent mode, select that profile, choose the personalise option. It the ringer option, select none. In the vibrate option, select vibrate only.
Pls if this was helpful, rate it a thumbs up.

Samsung d900

To place the handset in silent / vibrate mode follow the steps below: To place the handset in Silent Mode, hold down the pound key (#) for about 2 seconds. To exit Silent Mode, perform the same action while in Silent Mode. You will see a confirmation message for Silent Mode, each time you enter or exit Silent Mode. The phone will vibrate rather than ring when you receive a phone call, message or alert while in silent / vibrate mode.
