Question about Sony Ericsson W300 Cellular Phone

Speaker Not working, doesn't ring will vibrate

I dropped my phone a couple of times and now the phone only rings about 10% of the time. It will go a couple of days with out ringing then out of the blue it wil start again. I took it into an ATT store and they told me I had to get a new phone. My contract still has 9 months on it. Is there a way to fix? It still vibates when ringing so the phone still works in that aspect.

    Speaker doesn't work. Phone won't ring; it only vibrates. Sounds plays fine through the headphones. I tried removing the battery as suggested earlier--didn't make a lick of difference.

OMG yes i had the SAME problem. Okay take the battery out of the phone did u try that? Then put it back in and iut should work (for a coupla days). You are gonna have to take the battery out every few days for it to work right (or buy a new battery) . My other suggestion is if you really want to, go on ebay,and buy a checp UNOLOCKED phone. That way u just switch the SIM cards and got a new, low cost, working phone!

Why my nokia C3 doesnt ring accordingly although i set the ring tone already?its only vibrate.i'm not using silent mode.

I can imagine it how annoying it would be to you to see your cell vibrating instead of playing your favorite ring tone. Most probably it could be because of incorrect Profile configuration. It is possible to make your phone vibrate in almost every profile so we will assume that it is the reason for your problem too. Do the following and check some parameters as described.

1. Go to Menu > Settings > Profiles
2. Select Profile and then Select General.
3. After selecting General you will be given 3 options (Activate, Personalize, Timed)
4. Select Personalize.
5. In the Incoming Call Alert field, select Ringing.
6. In the Ringing Tone field, select your favorite ring tone.
7. Scroll down, (push down button) the next field would be Ringing Volume. For now select the max.
8. Scroll down to the Vibrating Alert field and set it to Off.
9. Scroll further down thill the very last field where it says Alert For, select All Calls for this field.
10. Save your modifications.
11. Activate the profile and see if it works now.

Only and only If it doesn't work, it may be due to software corruption.
In that case reset your phone to the factory default settings by going to:
Menu > Settings > Press UP button.
Select Restore Factory Sett. give your Security Code (default = 12345) and viola.
(Make backup of your messages ad contacts before attempting this)

Dropped it - put battery back in. Works for outgoing calls but only vibrates, does NOT RING for incoming calls. Checked Settings--> Ring Styles and changed to Loud (still doesn't ring) and back to Vibe...


You dont hear tones after you dropped it.
This is because the speaker connection may be disconnected due to sudden ****.

You need to contact your authorized motorola service centre to fix this problem.this is a very small problem so no need to worry.

Thank you

Phone will not ring, only vibrates even tho I use the side volumn control to choose ring volume one, or two, or three or four, or five. None work to make it ring


The reason your phone isnt ringing out is because the speaker of your phone is faulty.

The sounds made by your phone(including the ringing tone) is heard through the speaker and once it is faulty,you will not hear any sound coming from your phone.

The only solution is to have your speaker replaced.

HTC Touch Diamond will vibrate, but won't ring on incoming calls

I just had this problem - and I have been messing with it for an hour.... but I finally fixed it - Try this - touch the speaker symbol on top (The system status window should pop-up) then touch the speaker symbol again (Now you should have two tabs - one for system and one for ring) Touch ring and slide it up. This worked for me.

Blackberry 8300 curve

Turn your vibrate off. The curve vibrates before it rings, it won't vibrate and ring at the same time. So with the vibrate off, you will gain about 10-15 seconds of ring time.
