    Droid X Not Ringing... help.

    I just got the Droid X.
    I installed a handful of free apps and chose a factory ringtone.
    The phone was working fine for a while, but suddenly has just stopped ringing.

    I have turned the system volume to loudest setting.
    I have used the side toggle bars as well.
    Silent mode is "OFF".
    Sound is "ON" on the menu before shut down.
    I have turned it off, re-selected ringtones and reset.

    Please help. I am missing very important phone calls.
    My phone vibrates only.

    Also, ALL of my other audible notifications work fine.
    Email, text, etc... all ring with the factory setting I chose.

    You didn't mention if you had turned up "ringer volume". Are you sure that's up?

    Option to resetting

    I'm not registering to a bunch of forums.

    I also have a Droid X and I too have the ringing problem.
    I do not want to reset the unit. I have ~100 apps and customized icons/widgets.

    So what I did, while waiting for a fix, is go into settings-Call settings and set the "Caller ID Readout" to Caller ID Repeat. So it keeps speaking the Caller ID. It's better than just vibrating and will hold me over until a fix arrives.

    My DX did that once. I just power-cycled it (turned it off then back on) and all is good now.

    Matt from Motorola has posted a possible fix for this issue. It doesn't work for everyone, but it does work for some. Other have also posted things that worked for them.

    I was experiencing this issue and was going completely and totally insane over it.

    I was able to fix without a reset.

    I called my X from another phone- did NOT answer. Had the X face down with both Smart Sensor settings ENABLED. I QUICKLY turned the phone over so it was face up. I felt a pause in the vibration, a very short vibration, and then the vibration continued. I did this twice as I did not think the first time had made a difference. The third time I called the phone, with it FACE UP – it freekin’ RANG!

    So, the only thing I did differently was turn the phone over quickly – very quickly.

    Hope this helps someone that is pulling their hair out…

    Same happened with me... I never enabled this setting originally and my phone hasn't rang in weeks... (Vibs only!)

    However, I enabled the face down setting and then flipped the phone up a few times and it started to ring...

    Fun!

    the replies in the other threads are right as i also had this problem.
    Had to get a new phn & factory reset once since.

    i noitce also when turning off or on the phone to hold the
    power button down long enough (ie not a quick tap)and that
    has restored my ringing.


    Also for the person w over 100 apps, install 'App Brain'
    this will let u restore yr apps from yr computer
    or at least, print out a copy
