Default Phone not ringing?

Please Login to Remove!

Okay, so I'm new, but this seems like it would be "obvious" but.

I'm trying to get my phone to ring.

Currently I have it set to the Normal profile, which is setup as Tone for Out of Holster, T-Jingle as the Ring Tone, and Medium as the volume, it's setup similar for In Holster, except it is marked as Vibrate+Tone.

Why would the phone not ring when it's getting an incoming call? Also what is defined as in holster for a 8220 given that it doesn't have a holster?

Nevermind, seemed to be a quirk, possibly because I'm right at the "edge" of a coverage area. Seemed to ring again next time someone called it, so no clue.

Glad things appear to be working.

Though your phone may not have a holster, you may still purchase cases, sleeves and holsters specifically designed for BlackBerrys. These items contain a small magnet that interacts with the device to let it know it has been holstered. The BlackBerry then enters a pseudo-sleep mode to conserve power. Additionally, there are settings on the phone that key off the the "holstered" status" (i.e. End Call when holstered, etc.).

Shaun,

Thanks, the whole "magnet" thing was what I didn't understand.
