    Really Weird G1 Ringtone Issue (aka Am I being unreasonable?)

    Advertisement



    I bought a used G1 off of craigslist last week and I really like it a lot. There are a few problems, though. The battery life is terrible! No Blackberry-like sonar sound (use it for my txts). And, there is a really strange problem.

    I cannot get a custom ringtone to work for my wife!!!

    I can set custom ringtones for ANYONE except my wife.

    I have tried as many things to fix the problem as I can think of:

    -Resetting the phone to factory setting
    -Removing and re-adding my wife's number to my phone
    -Reformatting my microSD
    -Using different ringtones (from SD and from the factory presets
    -New SIM
    -Switching back to my BB 8800
    -Calling a different G1 with my wife's phone (works with other)
    -????
    -NO PROFIT?!

    I am extremely annoyed and completely baffled. Anyone else have any ideas? I've spent hours on the phone with tech support to no avail. They won't cover it because I bought it used.

    I am considering selling my G1, but I just don't know. Am I crazy?

    Is it set to a speedial. I remember one phone I worked on for days with the same issue and the only thing we could come up with is since ot was one of their eight 1-touch speedial keys the personalized ringer didn't work. Hope this helps . . .

    It is set to a speed dial key on my BB8820, but I did not set one on my G1. Is the speed dial info saved to the SIM?
