i notice my fone dont beep all times when i get SMS, or email etc. ... BlackBerry Storm forum
alerts, ringer, etc not working?
i notice my fone dont beep all times when i get SMS, or email etc. anyone else have this issue or is it a .86 issue?
did you go through your profile settings and see if you maybe have those muted ?
it wouldnt beep at all. it works wen it wants to.
After updating to .86 I had an issue today where the ringtone on the profile I was using was not playing. It would play any other ringtone or song though. It was a mp4 I had on the media card. I had to delete the file and copy it back over then reset it as the ringtone. This may not be your problem but it is what I experienced on .86.
naa this is my alerts for SMS and email mainly. im using stock alerts for SMS and email
What I did notice after the .86 upgrade was that when in the profile settings and scrolling through the alert tones it would not preview the sounds anymore like it should. I had problems yesterday with the phone rebooting and freezing so I downgraded back to .75 and it is perfect again.......just slow. lol

Hi, I've got the same kind of issue with my Storm. Last week I upgraded to version 188.8.131.52 of the operating system. Ever since, I do not get audible alerts (even for calls). It vibrates once and the LED flashes, but there is no sound. The one exception is for Email alerts, I hear a quiet beep-beep-beep tone when I receive an email from our BES, NOT the gong sound that I have set in the alert options. Also, now, when previewing the different ringtones, it used to sample them when I highlight each one, but now there is no sound. The 'try it' button flashes the LED and vibrates but again does not play any sound.
I thought I had version .86 before upgrading, but after reading about all these sound issues I'm going to try going back to 184.108.40.206 if I can. Will post results, but I'm starting to suspect the version isn't the only issue. The screen does odd things.
It's almost as if when an alert is supposed to play, instead of playing a sound it performs a 'cancel' function, taking me out of the screen I was in and back to the previous one.
I have tried a cold reboot (battery), I tried wiping it and re-activating and then restoring, I nuked the device altogether and reloaded the O/S... STILL have the same problem. I'm about to throw it away and get a tour.
Tried upgrading to 220.127.116.11. Same issue..
Installed 18.104.22.168. Finally the ringtone i specify to be played correctly when getting a call.
I just noticed that when I go to select a ringtone/alert sound, the list is gone! Now I'm starting to think that all my ringtones got deleted, which would certainly cause the problems I described above. In addition to updating my version, I also used a media sync operation with my windows media player. I suspect I made a mistake using it, and deleted my ringtones, but how? It never warned me about that, I just built a play list and hit sync on the device memory card... I will look at recovering all my sounds tomorrow. You all probably don't care but i'll post the results.
