My Slice phone no longer rings out loud or vibrates when a call comes in. How do I restore those settings?

Check out this link for a PDF manual for your phone. Just copy and paste into your browser.

I got this info off of page 60 from your manual.

Control the volume for Ringtone, Speakerphone, Headset, and Advanced settings.
Set ringtone volume and incoming call alert options:
1. Press [Menu], then press "Settings".
Press "Sounds", then press "Volume".
2. Press "Ringtone".
3. Press / to adjust the volume level. Press to select Vibrate when High is the volume level.
The volume settings available are:
• Silence all: All sounds are off.
• Vibrate : Phone will vibrate to alert you of incoming call or message.
• Off: Only the ringtone is muted.
• Ringtone mode: Low, Medium, High.
Tip • You can adjust the ringtone volume with the side keys.

Hope this helps. Let me know if I can help you with anything else.
