Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100
Hi i cant seem to figure out why my volume isnt working on my bb pearl. I changed it to loud, even vibrate, but NOTHING. Tried turning it off and on...still nothing.
When someone calls i can hear them just fine...but cant seem to get my phone to ring...any suggestions?
Take the back cover off and see if the black mesh material is intact and still covering the internal speaker. blow out the speaker area if you can, and take your battery out of the phone and leave it out for about 20 minutes. put it back in and verify that your volume is all the way up, and its on the LOUD setting. also, try using a different ringtone, or just a differend sound all together......if you can, use a flashlight to shine through the mesh material that covers the internal speaker ( on the back of the phone, behind the back cover, to the left of the flash and lens) and try to see if it atleast APPEARS intact.......another thing you can try, would be to call that phone, and while the phone is ringing, place it up against your ear, without the back cover on the phone, and see if you can hear anything at all.
if this does not work, then you either have a bad speaker, or a bad conenction. either way, you need to take the phone back to the store and have them take it apart and inspect it, or just have them send it back to the manufacturer for repairs.......and enjoy the piece of **** phone that they give you to use in the mean time....sorry about the joke, but thats the way they usually do it......especially t-mobile....
