I've had 188.8.131.522 on my Curve 8900 for a while and was running OK mostly. But last week all of a sudden my ringtones/audio-alerts just stopped working. No audible alerts at all (no message tone, ringtone, alram, SMS alerts). Also noticed that when I play music or video, there is no sound till I switch to "Handset" output.
Since then I have wiped my device TWICE using BBSAK and re-installed the OS. Still no audible alerts. [On a side note, something strange: even after I wiped the BB, the "Smart-WiFi" app was still installed. Does that mean the BB did not get completely wiped?]
As you can imagine, this is rather frustrating since I rely on my BB even as my alarm clock :(
Anyone have thoughts on how to proceed now?
