    Had the same problem since last year. I tried to get some service/update software but there is no support for it. One of these days, I'll just open it up to see what's inside. Good luck!

    My speaker has also gone out. no external sound at all. no ringing, no beeping when i dial, no alarm feature, no opportunity to go to speaker. is there a way to replace the speaker?

    I am having the same problem. The phone is brand new and has not sustained any damage (water, falls, etc.) at all. There is sound at start up and the key tones work, but nothing else does (multimedia, calls, texts, etc.) Every once in a while out of the blue it will ring but it is far too inconsistent to depend on.

    I have a green moto pebl u6
    it wasnt ringing aloud for quite some time and i wondered why, but i just turned it off, then back on and it actually rang.
    i think the phone just needs a break. Turn it off for a while :)

    I also have this exact same problem--the speaker does not work. I have tried updating the firmware from using Software Update, but unfortunately that has not corrected the issue.

    I'm having the same issue where my phone will not ring. I've tried taking out the battery and SIM, but that didn't work. Tried a master reset with no luck. I took the back off and just pressed against the speaker located at the bottom and it started working. But it's intermittent. Appears to be a problem with the wiring.

I did what aduno suggested about turning the phone off, since I always have it on, and it worked. I am still mad that this happened though. Most people leave ther phones on all the time, and they don't have issues. I just bought my phone in May and it started this at the end of October - Not even owned six months and it started this.

Otherwise, I love the phone. I am just disappointed in this incident. I hope that it doesn't have more serious problems later on...

Cay78 - have the phone firmware reflash you can do that online or take it to a mobile service center and have that done, that would correct the issues.

My Motorola A455 has stoped ringing when I get a call or text message. All my settings are on ring only and the master volume is on high. The speaker option is also not working. Please help! Shido

Oh seeeop the same happened to me and the reason is that the speakers on the phone probably blew out. Your best help will probably be to take it to the phone company and ask for them to fix it. U really can do nothing just messing with it in fact that makes it worse.

Motorla PEBL not ringing

Okay Ive had this phone.
Do any other sounds on there work?
such as music in the sounds area?
Or Sounds in games?
If NOT I would think that the internal speaker has been damged by the water.I would try and get it repaired by motorola,or under warrenty.

If these sounds do work,and it is only just that there is no sound when you get msgs or calls,check your phone is set on a loud style,rather than silent or vibrate.Normally you can change this by going to Settings and icoming call alerts if im remebering right.
Or I Think you you can change it by the side buttons.

Hope Ive Helped You Out.

Good Luck With It.

Can't hear

This is not a software or setting issue (unless you've been playing with the Bluetooth or headset settings and have them set to ON in your settings menu) and you should have it checked at your local cell provider as they might be willing to help you as I think it's that the ear-speaker has died. Sounds obvious, but this has happened to me before with the PEBLs.
