Hi, you can format your phone by pressing a combination of 3 keys - green key (Call answer button), star key (* key) and key number 3 simultaneously while powering on your Nokia E50.
Note : All data will be lost on the phone and it will revert to factory default.
Unclear if you're using the TMobile ring tones or some that you have downloaded (or created). BION, I got longer ring times by using longer ring tone recordings. (I got mine from free sites on the net, most tones created by people from their music collections.) If you are using ring tones that aren't from T-Mobile, switch to a TM ring tone and see if that makes a difference. (If it does, then shop around for some new ring tones - the old ones were causing a problem.)
Another possibility is to check settings/phone/auto answer. Be sure this is set to "never." Also check Call Barring. Try having your blocking of incoming calls "off."
And last: put profile on "vibrate" and call yourself. Do you get more than one second of vibration? If you don't, then it's probably a phone malfunction, but if you do, it's a ring tone problem. Fairly easy to deal with. Good luck!
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.

Found the solution,
Option one:take out the battery, put it back in and reboot.
Option two:The other alternative is to spit twice when there is a full moon, urinate in the general direction of where you purchased the phone, spin around three times and say 'phone work, phone work, phone work' and then empty your wallet and burn the contents, after giving your credit card to a hardcore junkie. It should work after that.
