Default Problems with new 8830 World Edition

Please Login to Remove!

Hello all,
I bought a new 8830 World Edition today from Sprint. My main issue at the moment is that when people call me, the phone only vibrates, it does not ring. I have gone into the setting for the Normal sound profile, (which is active) and set "Phone" to Vibrate-Tone, set the volume to medium, for both in holster and out. When I get a phone call, it only vibrates. If i set it to Tone only, it rings.

Shouldn't Vibrate-Tone make it ring and buzz? If not, how do I get the 8830 to do so?

Thank you.

I have mine set to vibrate- tone and it vibrates 2 times before the ring starts. It does not vibrate and ring together.

I have come to like that... gives me a chance to answer it before it rings when I am in public.

I know there are a number of threads on here about volume issues and I find that when mine is set on "normal" I can't hear squat unless it's dead quiet around me...

Thank you.
In your options to change the "phone" sounds, the very last option is "do not disturb" make sure that says "No"... I don't see them sending it from the factory with it set to yes, but who knows?

Or possibly try a different profile. I have mine always on loud...

I don't think I waited long enough for it to buzz and THEN ring. I'll try that.

I did see lots of posts about people complaining about volume. I don't want to read through 100 posts to find it, so i'll just straight up ask all you fine folks: Is there a way to fix it?

put some holes in the back of the unit, where the speaker is. seems to be the only fix.
