The phone automaticly scrolls through volume, calls,contact list,makes calls randomly activates camera and I am unable to hear callers ..when i try to turn it off it starts to shut down then powers back up and does this till the battery runs out, turning off and on! When it is flashing between all the different functions of the phone I cant do anything except press the end button, but it continues to constantly go through all the different things in the phone.

    No the phone has not been exposed to extremes in temp. When it is plugged into ac power is when it does the scrolling and all kinds of crazy stuff. On battery is when it constantly powers off and on never coming on completly. I have left the battery out for a full day with a fan blowing on it just in case it was a moisture issue and it did not help. Thanks for your reply.

Hi
Make sure your ringer is not in vibrate mode. Try These this thing first
Press Menu > Settings/Tools > Settings > Sounds > Ringer Type > Voice Calls.
Select Caller IDor No Caller ID. (A list of ring type categories will be displayed.)
Select a category, and then use your navigation key to scroll through the available ringers. A sample ringer will sound as you highlight each option.
Press OK to assign a ringer. Make sure your speaker works. Turn On your speaker phone while talking to someone and see whether you can hear or not. Make sure the increase the volume using keys on side of your phone.
If none of these works the ******** motor needs to be cheked for loose connections inside the phone.

How do I make the phone ring/ Also how do I delete number's/


Activating Personal Ring
You can assign special ringer tones to anyone in your phonebook. When your phone gets a call, it looks up the Caller ID information in your phonebook. If you've assigned a personal ringer to that number, the phone uses it so you know who is calling. To turn the personal ringing on or off, follow these steps:
  1. Press [Menu/Select]. Select the HANDSET SETUP menu, and then the PERSONAL RING submenu.
  2. Move the cursor to select ON or OFF.
  3. Press [Menu/Select]. You will hear a confirmation tone.
Selecting a Ring Tone (Handset only)
You may choose from four melodies or three tones for your phone's primary ring tone. Each handset can use a different ring tone or melody. The available ring tones are as listed:
  1. Press [Menu/Select]. Select the HANDSET SETUP menu, and then the RINGER TONES submenu.
  2. Move the cursor to select a ring tone. As each ring tone is highlighted, you will hear a sample.
  3. When you hear the tone you want to use, press [Menu/Select]. You will hear a confirmation tone.
Adjusting the Speaker Volume
Handset Speakerphone: You can choose from six volume levels for the handset speakerphone. To adjust the speaker volume while on a speakerphone call, press the UP Arrow button (to make it louder) or the Down Arrow button (to make it softer).
Base Speaker: You can choose from ten volume levels for the base speaker. To adjust the speaker volume while call screening or playing messages, press [volume +] (to make it louder) or [volume -] (to make it softer).

Adjusting the Audio Tone
If you aren't satisfied with the audio quality of your phone, you can adjust the Audio Tone of the earpiece while on a call. Your phone gives you three audio tone options: low, natural and high; the default setting, Natural Tone, is recommended for hearing aid users. Audio tone adjustments only apply to the earpiece, not the speakerphone.
To adjust the audio tone:
  1. While on a call, press [Menu/Select].
  2. Move the cursor to select AUDIO TONE, and then press [Menu/Select].
  3. Move the cursor to select desired option (HIGH TONE, NATURAL TONE, or LOW TONE), and then press [Menu/Select]. Selected option appears in the display for two seconds, and then the display returns to normal.
Deleting Phonebook Entries
You can delete a single phonebook entry at a time or all phonebook entries at once:
To delete a single phonebook entry:
  1. When the phone is in standby, press the phonebook key.
  2. Find the entry that you want to delete and press [Menu/Select].
  3. Select DELETE. DELETE ENTRY? appears in the display.
  4. Move the cursor to select YES.
  5. Press [Menu/Select]. You will hear a confirmation tone, and DELETED! appears in the display.
Deleting Caller ID Numbers
  1. To delete only one Caller ID number, press the Caller ID button when the phone is in standby, and then find the number you want to delete.
  2. Press [Menu/Select] and select DELETE ENTRY.
  3. When the phone asks you to confirm, select YES.
  1. To delete all the Caller ID numbers, press the Caller ID button when the phone is in standby, and then press [Menu/Select].
  2. When the phone asks you to confirm, select YES.
Note: When you delete a Caller ID number, you delete it permanently.

Deleting a Redial Record
If you want to delete a phone number from the handset's redial list, follow the steps below:
  1. When the phone is in standby, press [Redial/Pause].
  2. Use the UP Arrow button and the Down Arrow button to scroll through the redial list.
  3. When you find the redial number you want to delete, press [Menu/Select] and select DELETE ENTRY.
  4. When the phone asks you to confirm, select YES. The redial number is deleted.
Resetting the Voice Message Waiting Indicator
  1. When you receive a new voice mail message, the new message LED on the top of the handset flashes and VM appears in the handset display.
  2. In the event your message alert tone gets out of sync with your phone company's voice messaging system, you can reset back to its original "no messages waiting" state.
  3. To reset, press and hold [find hs] on the base for five seconds.
  4. A beep sounds and the message alert tone is reset.

    Nokia e50 wont notify me when i recieve a new text message


    Hello there! thanks for using Fixya.com!

    Try the following instructions, to personalize your Nokia E50!
    Profiles
    Warning: In the offline profile you cannot make or receive any calls, or use other features that require network
    coverage. Calls still may be possible to the official emergency number programmed into your device. To make calls,
    you must first activate the phone function by changing profiles. If the device has been locked, enter the lock code.

    Select Menu > Tools > Profiles.
    You can adjust and customize the ringing tones, alert tones, and other device tones for different events, environments, or caller
    groups.
    To customize a profile, scroll to the desired profile in the list, and select Options > Personalise.
    Define the following settings:
    Ringing tone — Select a ringing tone from the list, or select Tone downloads to open a bookmark folder containing a list of
    bookmarks for downloading tones using the browser. To listen to the selected tone, select Play. If you have two alternate
    phone lines in use, you can specify a ringing tone for each line.
    Say caller's name — Activate the text-to-speech ringing tone feature. When someone from your contacts list calls you, the
    device sounds a ringing tone that is a combination of the spoken name of the contact and the selected ringing tone.
    Ringing type — Select how you want the ringing tone to alert.
    Ringing volume — Select the volume level of the ringing tone.
    Message alert tone — Select a tone for received text messages.

    Caller ID set up and poor audio quality


    Set up the callers in your contacts. You must have the area code for the name to show up. You must dial the area code for the name to show up when dialing out.

    The hearing problem could be the person you are talking to, if your volume is all the way up. If you are sure that it is you I would talk to a motorola technician. Let me know how it goes.
