so i have my 7100i set to loud, all volume turned up, nothing muted, bluetooth ... RIM Blackberry 71xx forum
7100i - wont ring/alert but speaker is fine.
so i have my 7100i set to loud, all volume turned up, nothing muted, bluetooth off.. but when i get a message or call, it makes no sound. the speaker works fine though, i can put the phone on speaker phone and it works loud and clear.
I've seen this problem before, I'm a nextel dealer and a customer had this same issue twice, end result was replacing the whole phone.
But this is MY phone and I don't want to just replace it, I want to figure out how to make it start working :/
Also, when browsing ringtones, when you highlight the ringtone, it is supposed to play the highlighted tone, but I get no sound.
Are there 2 speakers in the 7100i? It voids all warrantysreplacements if I take them apart (RIM is anal about it), so I have never taken one apart.
I had my bluetooth headset hooked up for a day but then disabled it and turned BT off... then it stopped working.
Just wondering if anyone would have any idea why it wont ring.

Did you try a hard reset by pulling the battery and holding down the power button for 30 seconds?
Each 7100i that has rolled out of my store had the same issue. The new OS update is supposed to fix that. The battery pull will definitely cure your problem, unless you have a blown speaker, but dont worry, you should be fine.
tried the battery pull, didnt work. however the newest update did fix it. but now i cant send text messages lol.. says no mms record and i'll only be able to read/save draft.. bah
What you need to do, Im pretty sure, is log into your BIS account, www.nextel.blackberry.com, and resend the service books to your BB. Let me know how that goes...
