Re: How do I turn the ringer on?

From the main screen go into Profiles, scroll to the bottom of the list that appears and choose Advanced. Click on the "Active" one. Select the Phone category. In the Out of Holster you can set it to Tone or Vibrate & Tone and pick your ringtone. The same settings are at the bottom, but they are for when the BlackBerry is in it's holster.

What BlackBerry do you have.  You go into profiles (its an icon on your screen)  When you open it you will see the various ways to have your ringer.  Hope this helps

Re: How do I turn the ringer on?

I have the same problem.  Blackberry Curve 9300.  There is no Profiles under all.  Rather there is a (Normal)  "Sound and Alert Profiles"  And when I click on that there is no "Advanced" at the bottom.  I don't use a holster so need to know how to turn the ringer on without the holster.   If anyone can give an easy straight forward response, I would be very appreciative.  Thank you.

Hi

 

Somewhere on the main screen will be a loudspeaker icon, top left maybe. Click on it and scoll down to Edit Profiles. Click on say Loud and enter the details.

Re: How do I turn the ringer on?

Hello and thank you for your speedy response.  The Loudspeaker you wrote of is in the upper left hand corner.  I can make the adjustment to Loud and the ring comes out feeble and muffled.  The only Profile Icon under "ALL" t is labeled "(Normal)  Sound and Alert Profiles".   That is the only thing on my screen that has anything to do with "Profiles".   When I call my curve from my Torch, the Curve shows the incoming call.  At the bottom of the screen, there is a musical sign and "Ringer Off".  My wife seems to think all was fine before I upgraded the phones software.  I have tried wiping the phone, no joy.  Is it possible that I can go back to a pervious version?

Pulled the battery and its now working, however, there is a super-long pause between rings.
