Check that it isn't a software issue, go to Profiles from the desktop, scroll to the bottom for advanced.

Your active profile will be highlighted - At the bottom you will see an exceptions rule - Is your ticked for any other type of call?

It may be that the ringer is faulty? You can check this by trying to change your ringtone or lisitening to music/ media.

Can i make any of my ringtones be the tone for incoming texts and also, can i use animated wallpapers that actually move?


you can download animated themes at www.mobile9.com and www.zedge.net for your e71 phone. as for the ringtones, yes, you can use these tones to be the the incoming tones of your text messages. go to setings, profiles, general,choose personalise, message alert tone and choose your favorite aac or mp3 tone to be your message alert tone.

HTC Touch doesnt ring on incoming call


Hi. First thing, you can check your sound settings, by tapping Star Menu, then Settings, then Sounds & Notifications, and through that page, you can check if your incoming call alert is on (just sound, or vibrate and sound), you can try to change the ringtone to see if your current ringtone is damaged or not. (Since other sounds are alright, there shouldn't be any problem in your hardware or in the sound volume levels) Hope this helps.

Ring Tones for test messages


You can change the text message alert tones but you have to do it by accessing the phone's file system via a data cable connected to your computer. Goto lg-vu.com and search for text alerts and you'll find detailed instructions on how to do it.

I would like to change text message ring tone but can only find how to change ringtone and not for text messages


I found the answer!! Go to Menu>Settings>Profiles, then go to Options>Edit. Push the right side of the square (that you use to navigate the menus) so that you're working with New Messages, not Incoming Call. Go down to Message Alert Tone, then go to Options>Change>Use Effect Tone. If you were trying to use an .mmf that you downloaded, or any of the preloaded ones that can be used as incoming call ringtones, you'd go to Use My Alert Tone here. There are 4 tones under Use Effect Tone, and you can play them and choose one, just like you do to play and choose your ringtone.
