Default Can't Hear Phone Ring!!!

Please Login to Remove!

Just bought my BB 8330. I can't hear it ring besides the fact that I hate all the ring tones that come with the phone.

I also found the ringer to be much too quite for me, unless I'm in a quite environment. I used MP3GAIN to change the volume in the files themselves, and then loaded them as custom ringtones. If you have other ringtones you would like to use (you said you don't like the included ones), you should be able to adjust their volume using MP3GAIN until it's in the range you're looking for, and then use the volume selections on the Blackberry to change it on the fly.

Stupid question, but have you changed the profiles accordingly?

I have the 8830 and the ringtones were very low as compared to my 8800. There is a audio file on the net you can run that will boost the ringtones, that I used for a while. But the best bet is to update to the OS of the phone to 4.5.077 or greater if it is out yet. This fixed the problem for me and several others.

Ring volume on the 8830 was and is a known issue. Wouldn't compare it to the 8330.

Default phone will not ring or vibrate!!

I just updated my 8830 with the info from this site..............to 4.5 (thank you very much)............however.........now my phone will not respond at all to incoming calls or email etc. It will register on the display that a call is coming in but no sound..............my old sound files play.............and I can hear and talk on the phone to have a conversation......and all else seems to be fine........jeeeesh...........any thoughts? Oh yeah........I DID check to see if I had it on mute.......etc. I am a stumped human being at this point....LOL
