    OK! try it this way, go to: Menu/Tools/Profiles/ select General profile/Personnalize, here you should find Ringing tone/Video call tone/Ringing type/Ringing volume/Message alert tone/E-mail alert tone/IM alert tone/VIBRATING alert/Keypad tones/Warning tones/Alert for.

    Then Activate the Profile.

    Try to reset the phone to factory settings.

    Go to:

    Menu/Tools/Settings/select General/select Original phone settings.

    If you do this give the phone time to work, while resetting itself.

My lg stylo 2 doesn't have any sound for incoming calls or msg. sound is on but can hear it.


Do you hear other sounds from the phone? If so, check to see what ringtone/notification sound you have selected. Check both in system settings and the settings within the phone and messaging apps. Some notifications are silent. If all these are correct, check an individual's profile that you know has called our messaged and make sure you don't have their notifications silenced. Also, is the phone set to vibrate for incoming calls and messages and, if so, does it?

VIBRATE STAYS ON


Follow the below instructions and you can remove the vibrate state. I have included a link to download the phone's manual as a PDF file.

You can assign ringer types to individual Contacts entries,

Droid X phone won't ring for incoming calls.


Found on Motorola Support:

1. Make sure that the "Smart Profile: Face Down" feature is enabled.
2. Hold the phone face up in your palm.
3. Call your Droid X from another phone.
4. As the phone is vibrating, DO NOT ANSWER.
5. Still holding the phone, flip the phone face down as it vibrates.
6. Still holding it face down, hit your volume key to silence the phone.
7. Flip the phone back over so it's face up. You should feel a quick vibrating jolt indicating the ringer is back on.
8. End the call. It shouldn't matter which phone you end the call from, as feeling the jolt is the key.
9. Leave phone face up and call yourself again. If the ringer is now working again, turn OFF "Smart Profile: Face Down" until there's a true fix.
10. If it does not work initially, try all of the steps again a few more times and hope you get lucky.

Nokia E90 - no sound or mail symbol on incoming text message


Erase all incoming and outgoing text messages from the phone. Then take out the battery while the phone is on. This problem tends to happen when there are more than 2000 messages in the phone.
