Question about Motorola Mobility V325 Cellular Phone

V325i does not ring

I have a Motorola v325i on a Verizon network. It does not ring when called.  The vibe function works fine and calls are received correctly.  This is also a problem in the settings menu, as none of the ring tones will ring there either.  The phone does make noise when turned on and keys/buttons make beeps when operated.  I have done the master reset thing, did a "hard reset" (removed battery for <5 minutes) and made sure the phone was updated with the most recent software.

I believe this is a software problem because the startup/shutdown sounds play and the keys make noise, but I don't know how to reinstall the firmware or otherwise reset the phone so it starts ringing. Any ideas?

    I replaced the speaker with a known good speaker and it fixed it! It cost $11 for a otherwise dead phone on eBay.

The same thing happened to my phone a month ago. There's no way to update my firmware I can find, so I'm going to the Motorola kiosk where I bought the phone and raising hell until they backup my contact list so the device can be set "factory fresh" and have the contact list added back onto it.

Did you try turning up the volume?

I'm sorry, but that is a useless response. If you read the posting, it's obvious that the problem extends beyond a simple change in the menu. If you don't have helpful information, please do not post useless responses such as "turn up the volume". If it was that simple, most people will fix it before posting to this forum.

Have you checked in the MENU/settings/audio? Maybe it is set to SILENT or VIBRATE?

Need unlock code for Verizon Wireless Motorola V325i

Dial *228, then when prompted to do so by the automated system, press 1. After it says: "Your phone has been programmed successfully", press "OK" or "Done". When you press that, the phone will automatically power off, then back on. Once the phone has powered back on, the unlock code will now be the last four digits of the phone number.

Motorola V325i

Short answer: NO.

Long answer: the V stands for Verizon, which uses CDMA technology not GSM and more specifically, they don't use SIM chips, instead using Electronic Serial Numbers (ESN) you can still have multiple phones, but you have to call them or go onto your website to change between the phones.
