Ringtone/Alert Menu does NOT come up

I have been using Blackberries for almost 2 years, worked for a while with Vodafone's Technical Support teams for Blackberries and never encountered this!



All of a sudden, I cannot access the menu under profiles to change my ringing tone or message alerts for ANY profile.

I can only access Sound through Options and am only able to change the settings for the ringing tone, no messages or other notifications.


Failed attempts:

I updated the software

I wiped the device and restored my content

I wiped the device WITHOUT restoring m content


All the above failed me.


If anyone has a proposed idea or ever saw that, please do let me know!


I hope I will get to read your post on time with having to "guess" if there's a new message haha!

Re: Ringtone/Alert Menu does NOT come up



Do you have an application called Nimbuzz installed on your BlackBerry smartphone? If so try removing it and testing again.


Thank you
