Vibrate + Ring setting question

Ok... I dont mind the way in which this setting works (vibrating twice then ringing) however what I am encountering is that the the phone will vibrate twice then ring only once. This is extremely annoying and I dont know why this is doing that. because this was not an issue I encountered with my Pearl.

 

I am using one of the Bold's preloaded ringers (BBpro4 or 3) so I cant understand why it'll only ring once then stop. If I set it to the tone function it'll ring normally through to voice mail?

Is there anyway to fix this. I cant believe such a good phone is let down by such a annoying issue. 

 

Thanks

Re: Vibrate + Ring setting question

Call your carrier and ask them to "increase the ringtime until voice mail picks up".

Re: Vibrate + Ring setting question

Thats not the issue here as it is set to its full amount.

 

The issue is that if its set to vibrate + tone it'll vibrate twice and only tone once then cease. It will not audibly ring out until my call goes to VM. 

 

Does that explain it better?

Re: Vibrate + Ring setting question

I understand your problem.

 

A "ring" can consist of one short 2 second ring burst, or a full 15 second mp3 song clip. The number of rings is not the matter. It is the length of the ring you are using, and amount of time until voicemail picks up. 

 

So you have called your carrier and increased the time until voicemail from the preset 15 seconds , to the maximum 30 seconds allowed, already?

Re: Vibrate + Ring setting question

I have a similar problem with my BOLD. It vibrates twice before starting to ring, then it rings. At first I thought it was because I set an mp3 song as the ringtone, creating a lag time before the song could start playing, so I switched to a ringtone that came with the BB butI have the same problem.

Re: Vibrate + Ring setting question

Great... at least there's someone else encountering the same issue as I am.

 

What I cant understand is why if my ring settings are set solely to Tone the Bold will ring using that exact same tone selected all the way through to when the call ceases and goes off to voicemail however it'll only ring once after it had already vibrated twice in vibrate + ring setting whereby it'll then show only the call being received on the screen but will neither vibrate nor tone.

 

So in a nutshell... it buzzes twice, rings once then nothing. Why doesn't it vibrate twice then RING out audibly until either the caller hangs up or the call is referred to VM. 

 

Extremely annoying why such a great phone needs to be spoiled by such pissy issues.

Re: Vibrate + Ring setting question

Hi just got a Bold this week (upgraded from a 8800) and appear to be having same/similar problem.

 

I have Normal profile set to Vibrate+Tone with Number of Vibration: 2 and Ring Tone Ringer_ClassicPhone (default).

I have also increased my ringing time to 30 seconds with my telco via **61*XXX*30# (where XXX is the Voicemail Telco number).

So when my Bold is called it will: Vibrate Twice and then Ring Once then Vibrate twice again and start to ring but the 30 seconds is up.

My previous blackberry used to Vibrate Twice and then ring numerous times which is what I am looking for.

 

Why is the Bold Vibrating and ringing once. then vibrating again ?
