    I'm running the latest 2.2, and all of a sudden I've noticed that on incoming calls my ringtone is not working. The volume is on, I've tried various ringtones (both custom and stock), and I've tried turning off and on and removing the battery. Any ideas? This is so frustrating!

    Did you ever find the solution to your problem? My X is doing the same thing! Took it to the Verizon store and they can't figure it out! HELP!!!!!

    It be helpful to know what they tried to do at the Verizon Store.

    Did you go to your settings and make sure your have your sounds adjusted properly? I can't believe the Verizon store….well maybe I can….would just send you home and say I don't know what's wrong without giving you another phone.

    Phone won't ring

    Yes, I've tried everything! I think! They said that a hard reboot might fix it. Then one of the other sales people said that 2.2 would fix it. And I'm still waiting for that. I love the phone or should I say hand held computer! This is the only problem I have had.
    Thank you for your help!

    This sounds like it could be a bad app.
    I had a ringer problem (wouldn't stay in vibrate when I needed it to) and it turned out to be Ring Manager Pro...They had not updated (and still have not) to 2.2.
    One bad app can make the phone go haywire.
    If you have any new apps try removing them and see if its fixed...
    then reinstall one by one.

    This all took place while on vacation in Florida Tuesday. I haven't downloaded any new apps lately. I put a couple on there yesterday, but that was after the fact.

    Well I feel like a complete Doofenshmirtz, but the problem for me was user error. It turns out that the only phone I ever tested calling my phone from was my wife's. Well somehow, in her contact info, she had no ringtone selected, or it said Silent. Once I put it back on the ring tone I wanted her to have, it worked. So there was never anything wrong. i don't know how I switched it to Silent for her only in the first place, but there you go. Check that.

    ROFLOL….Most people wouldn't have come back in and admitted user error. Your a stand up member for doing that, IMHO.
