    This problem just started today. When I receive an incoming call, the phone vibrates only. I made sure the volume control is up. I have tried numerous ringtones but to no avail. If I go to Caller ID Readout under the Call Settings section, The phone will identify the name of the caller but then vibrates, no ringtone. I've tried just using the standard Droid ringtones instead of the downloaded ringtones that are on the phone. NO LUCK. Anyone have any ideas? If I have to do a hard reset, I guess that will be my only option. I already tried taking the battery out several times, and that didn't work. Please Help.

    is it possible that somehow the setting could have been changed to vibrate only? i have accidentally changed settings a time or two.

    No. I had gone through every conceivable setting. Did soft resets a few times by taking out battery and then replacing. Called Verizon and their great technical service (REALLY IS) best out of all carriers and after trying *228 and re activating we determined the best course of action was to do a hard reset. It fixed the problem as well as fixing an intermittent problem with viewing videos.

    That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

    I noticed that my previous phone, the Blackberry Storm shows up as my phone under my member #. I have the Droid X. How can I change that?
