    How do I turn on sound ?

    Advertisement



    Does anyone know how to turn on the speaker ? My pearl works as a phone, but the phone does not ring, but vibrates, i can't hear the ring tones, the trackball is silent, etc... I don't get any audible feedback.

    Thanks in advance.

    Go to the profiles icon and change the setting to Loud. Or you edit each individual instance (email, sms, etc) and set the ringer for whatever you like.

    Thanks Ben,

    I had tried that already, and still no sound!

    I wonder if I have a bum pearl.

    Check each individual setting, they may be all on vibrate only. Or you may be experiencing the "trackball moving as soon as it rings" issue.

    Do you have any music on your Pearl? You should be able to play music through the speaker on the device (i.e. no headphones).

    Squished: Went in to the media application and played the ringtones, but no sound.

    Sounds like a bug to me. I would try lou's idea, but if that doesn't work, time to report the issue to the dealer.

    My wife had the same problem with hers. We took it back to the T-Mobile store and they couldn't figure it out so they gave her a new one.

    My phone works on normal but when I put it on Loud, it's not any louder. Does anyone know how to fix that? Also, is there a way to do a ring and vibrate together?

    Thank you!

    aeschino, Welcome to PinStack.

    What are your Profile Settings that are in use (Active Profile)? Don't know about the Pearl, but other BBs, when in the holster will vibrate first then play the Ringtone and there is no way to change this.

    on my pearl, even thought i hate it, i hope the update might change it,
    it will vibrate first, after 3 vibrate it will start to ring without vibrate. i was hoping it was like my nokia where it ring an vibrate at teh same time.
