If the switch on the side of the phone is flipped down (red showing) then it is set to silent/vibrate mode. If that isn't it, then go to your home screen and try pressing the volume up button on the side of your phone several times until it reaches the desired volume.
You can turn on vibrate 2 different ways
Either turn the volume down using the side buttons. It will eventually go into vibrate mode
Or just flip open the phone and hold down the * key (bottom left button) for 2 seconds. The phone will enter silent mode and vibrate.
To restore the ringer it will depend on what mode your phone is in:
Vibrate Mode: Sets the phone to vibrate instead of ring.
To set Vibrate Mode, with the flip open, press and hold the # key .
To return to Normal Mode, press and hold the # key again.
Sounds Off Mode: Quickly deactivate your phone's sounds when you're in a place where phone sounds would be disruptive.
From standby mode with the flip open, press and hold the lower side volume key for 3 seconds. To return to normal sounds mode, press and hold the upper side key.
Airplane Mode: Turning on Airplane Mode will disable all wireless communications.
1) With the flip open, press the Menu key. 2) Use the Directional Key (top center of phone) to scroll to 'Settings and Tools'. 3) Press the 6 key for Phone Settings. 4) Press the 1 key for Airplane Mode. 5) Use the Directional Key to highlight a setting, then press OK. On/Off
The trick is NOT to use the "settings" menu, but instead press the volume button (on the left side of the phone's body) up, until you get into the "volume" mode and out of the "vibrate only" mode. then you can set the volume however high you want it.
Yeah, I had that problem too. I thought my phone was broken. -_- My old phone from Verizon is like 4 years old and I JUST got my enV3. On my old phone, I'd have to set the alarm's ringtone to "no ring." But, on my enV3, "no ring" literally means NO ring, no vibration, no notification, no nothing. On the enV3, in order to set your alarm clock to vibration mode, all you have to do is make sure you "master volume" is in vibration mode, but you have to set your alarm's ringtone to something other than "no ring."
This phone allows you to independently set ring and vibrate modes. When you access "Call Vibrate" to set the mode, also visit the "Call Ringtone" menu to turn off the ringer.
You may want to leave the vibrate mode OFF and your ring tone ON and use the quick keys to switch between ring and vibrate. Two ways to do this, push and hold the # key to switch between normal mode (the settings you chose in "Call Ringtone" and "Call Vibrate") or use the side volume button to access the "Master Volume" and select "All Off", "Vibrate" or a ring tone volume.
