Can't get the phone out of vibrate mode

I cannot get my cell phone to ring, it stays in vibrate. The only options on the screen are quiet mode, vibrate all or silent all. I have tried holding the # key down and all that does is switch between vibrate or silent.

    Can't change my Samsung D600 from vibration to melody. I followed all the steps Sound, Ring tone, select type of melody, volume, select melody, save. However it won't play the default melody at all. It only vibrates as a ringtone.

    I don't have any numbers off of the phone-just thought I could find out why the bells will not ring when a call comes in but the notice via vibration does work

    I put my cell in my pocket and it started to vibrate and hasn't stopped. The screen and every other aspect of the device is working fine just vibrating the whole time.

I have read the manual for your Samsung SGH-d357 and you need to set the ALERT TYPE, this allows you to set the alert default. Choose from Melody, Vibrate, or Vibrate then Melody You need to choose Melody. This will ring but not vibrate. In case you were missing the manual it is here:- http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/200708/20070822042739000_att_d357_ug.pdf

Try switching to general profile or edit the profile to ring with a specified tone.

    The vibrate option will also be in the profile, perhaps I can be more helpful if you specify which phone you have.

I have a nokia 6275 cell phone but he can't do vibrate in any mode

Go to profiles, select a profile you wish to use, click on personalise. For the vibrate option, you can select 'vibrate, then ring', if you want it to vibrate before it rings.
Select 'rythm', if you want it to be vibrating as it rings .
If you need a profile where it only vibrates without sound, most prefarably in the silent mode, select that profile, choose the personalise option. It the ringer option, select none. In the vibrate option, select vibrate only.
Pls if this was helpful, rate it a thumbs up.

Samsung d900

To place the handset in silent / vibrate mode follow the steps below: To place the handset in Silent Mode, hold down the pound key (#) for about 2 seconds. To exit Silent Mode, perform the same action while in Silent Mode. You will see a confirmation message for Silent Mode, each time you enter or exit Silent Mode. The phone will vibrate rather than ring when you receive a phone call, message or alert while in silent / vibrate mode.
