I have recently started a brand new Blackberry Bold, having used an older model Blackberry (without hassle) for the past 6 years.
I am having difficulty with the ringtone at the moment, in that I have selected one of the standard ringtones (Classic Phone Remix), but when someone calls my phone, the actual ringtone itself will only ring once. I don't mean that it rings once and goes to voicemail. Rather, I only hear the ring once, then the phone goes on vibrating silently for 20 or so seconds. I can't seem to make the ringtone actually ring more than once so that I can hear it more than once. I've changed it to the Assured tone, which rings twice, but is not much better.
I personally can't stand the other options for ringtones (am a bit of a traditionalist), and would be quite happy with the sound of Classic or Assured repeating itself, just like an ordinary landline telephone would.
I realise this might seem like an odd request. Can anyone advise on how I might be able to do that?

Unless that's the way the ringtone is set up (which is unlikely), it could be a software issue. Let's start with the first step to take when troubleshooting software problems, a baterry pull. Remove your battery while your phone is powered on then replace it.
Let us know if that does the trick.

Thanks for your response.
Unfortunately, I tried your suggestion but it did not fix the problem.
I am sure it is a settings problem that I can't seem to figure out!
The other ringtones (Adventurous, Evolving, Spirit) all play out their respective tunes for 10 seconds or so, compared to Classic which is literally 1 x 1.5 second ringtone, and that's it.
I welcome any other suggestions!

Unless you've got some app that's botching the ringtone somehow, there really are no other settings you could play with. My family's asleep right now, otherwise I'd give the ringtone a try on my end to see if that's the way it's set up (for only one ring then vibrating).
I'll have a go at it later. Sorry I can't help you more at the moment.
