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.

Re: Speaker Not working, doesn't ring will vibrate

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)

I wanted to set the HTC snap phone to ring and vibrate at the same time but are unable to do so. Please advise. Thanks

In your profiles, hit Menu, then edit, then choose ring and vibrate. It might take a couple of tries because that is a known issue with the HTC Snap, Ozone and Sprint Hero. Reset your profiles to default and do this a few times. It gets a little tedious and annoying, but HTC hasn't fully addressed the issue yet.

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.

Ring vs vibrate

This phone allows you to independently set ring and vibrate modes. When you access "Call Vibrate" to set the mode, also visit the "Call Ringtone" menu to turn off the ringer.

You may want to leave the vibrate mode OFF and your ring tone ON and use the quick keys to switch between ring and vibrate. Two ways to do this, push and hold the # key to switch between normal mode (the settings you chose in "Call Ringtone" and "Call Vibrate") or use the side volume button to access the "Master Volume" and select "All Off", "Vibrate" or a ring tone volume.

If this helps you, please leave me a good rating.
