The reason for this as I learnt last week is a small switch which is operated by placing the back cover on the phone. Its a 'safety' feature apparently. If you have a picture or ringtone set from the memoery card relese the back. (you will notice it reverts everything back to factory settings. Now do the same but make sure the tone and pic that you use is stored to the phone memory not your card.....presto!! it stays on and dosent revert. People around the globe think its a software bug when actually its not. It prevents you losing data from your memory card. I am currently trying to find out if this feature can be disabled. Its stupid, I know!!!!!

If you knock the phone or drop it, any ringtones, wallpapers etc in use will revert back to factory IF the said ringtones, wallpapers in use are stored on the memory card, transfer the tones and wallpapers you wish to use onto the phones internal memory and this should then stop the problem.

How to change call ringtone on nokia e63


Hi Violin,
I have this steps for you for work around setting up call ringtone. Hope it helps.
--- there should be no prob to set a custom tone if you go to the tone and select options you should get an option to select from a list from the menu otherwise go to profile and select edit then when you come to ringtone select options and you will get options you should be able to select a tone from the gallery

---I discovered something about this problem. It appears that if you have the same phone number assigned to two (or more) contacts the ringtone plays the default ringtone. Once I deleted one of the contacts with the same number, it played the correct custom ringtone. What is strange is that both contacts had the same ringtone. BTW, the reason I had done this was to simplify the voice command to make a call to this contact.

How to set music as your message tone


You can't change the messaging tone to a song from your music playlist, these options for choosing your own music as ringtones are restricted to an alarm tone, phone ringtone and caller ringtone (caller ringtone is when specific people calls you, a certain ringtone would appear for that caller to differentiate between callers)

Thank you for using FixYa!
