I had the same problem. I deleted my internet explorer temp files, turned the phone off/on, and my phone rang again! Basically, just watch your device memory and keep it as clean as possible. Really bad bug, needs a patch already!
My girlfriends did the same thing twice. It's as if one speaker just stops workign so you can't hear it ring but the other one works so you can still hear people talk. And mine goes silent but works if I change the sound and then set it back again. My girl is on her 4th phone. I am still on my first one and she bought hers after mine.
Hell yea i had the same exact problem the sound didnt work...like i could make calls and hear what people were saying but it didnt ring . The phone was only a few months old and i had to get it replaced
Thank you, but even though it's a valid way of finding out (by process of elimination) what it is that's causing it to quit working I don't really have that much patients or time on my hand to be playing with it. There has to be some sort of a way of running a software/hardware diagnostics on the device. It's sort of like the "burn-in" you'd do on a computer before sending it off to a customer. This, I envision, would run for a day if necessary and on a clean device (using the method you described) to see if the manufacturer is at fault. When I say "manufacturer" I mean either T-Mobile, HTC or Microsoft or any other component level manufacturer for that matter. I guess it's just a wishful thinking, but maybe that day will come when someone will figure out a way to put these mobile devices through the same paces that computers are subjected to and find what's wrong with them before they are being sold. I see too many forums where people say the sound quits working and I don't think all of us are running the same 3rd party software that does this to us. And it's not just my HTC manufactured phone model, there are others. The only common theme among them is the presence of Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.0 professional. I'll leave it at that. Thanks for your suggestion.

Re: Phone won't ring
It is definately not speaker related.......i would do a master reset....delete those 3rd party apps....they are likely causeing the problem....to do this, go to start, settings, system, clear storage.....good luck! :)

I hate to say it but you might need to hard-reset the phone. If you choose to do so BACK UP YOUR DATA first. You can get a free program called "PIM Backup." This will let you back up all of your contacts, emails, etc. (all personal information). To hard reset, hold down both of the soft keys at the same time, then simultaneously use your stylus to hit the reset button. You should get a black screen with some text on it asking if you want to hard reset. Press the "send" key to confirm. If you don't get the screen right away keep trying as it doesn't work perfectly every time.
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.
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.

I'm having the same problem. However, I have discovered that it is something to do with the upper slide part of the phone. For some reason, if you push the slide down just a bit when you're trying to play music the sound comes on. Not sure how to fix this problem other than scrap the phone.
