    I'm having exactly the same problem. I've made sure I've not accidentally put it in silent mode, and I've changed to a different profile to see if it's just the normal profile that isn't working. I've checked the ring volume and tried changing the ringtone, and I master reset it this morning. No joy. Still no ringtone or message alerts, but it plays the sound on video and audio files. Any ideas?

My sony ericsson has no sound when ringing

If your player is working, and you already setup menu/settings/sounds&alerts/ring volume 5-8, and silent off you should use your warranty for that phone. That is the problem with most se w890i.

Sony Ericsson W890i

Go to "Settings" (Open Menu, press #)
It should present you with a menu of general configurations. Look for "New events" (or similar. Should be the 6th menu item in there)
It allows you to choose if new events (like messages, missed calls etc) will pop-up, or nicely place themself in a list :)
Hope this helped you out.
