I really appreciate the help fro all of you Blackberry Gurus out there.
It would help to know what OS you are running. It sounds like you have an early pre- OS .284 Blackberry which has a well-documented ringtone volume bug. If so the temporary solution is to make a phonecall on your Blackberry, go into Speakerphone mode, turn the speakerphone volume up to full and hang up. I know it doesn't seem to make sense but that will provide a temporaray fix until the next time you use the speakerphone and hangup with the volume at below full.
The better solution is to install an OS that fixed the bug like Bharti. Instructions are here
. These instructions will also unlock the Zen theme and a few others. It's worth the effort to upgrade.
