Default No ringo on el phono

I got a new cell phone just over a month ago, and it never rings. somebody will call me, and it will go straight to voicemail. i took it to the cell phone place that does the service, and went wtf? they did a couple of things, it rang fine for a day, then somebody called me again today, and it is back to the straight to voicemail thing. this is annoying. i even called it myself, and it dont ring. phone can be sitting there in my hand, and all i get is the stupid voice mail notifier. can anybody help?

no, it is not a ringtone issue.

It could be a number of things.... this happens to my phone when I am in my one friend'* house... they are near high power lines and it interferes with the cell phone signal. It is too weak for the call to come through, but strong enough for the voice mail indicator.

But, that only happens at their house... it'* fine everywhere else.... if this is happening to you regardless when you have the phone, I'd take it back and ask for a trade on a new one...

hrmmm... what i might do is just keep bringing the phone back for them to fix it, and wait until they get tired of seeing me.

i dont want to have to move into a new phone again though :(

You could get the same model of cell phone, and they could transfer your numbers for you at the store.

i wonder what the chance of them letting me go to the next level of phone down is. my razor is so unstable, i have to restart the phone to use the camera, it hardly ever prompts for a password at startup <even though it is set up>. razors are so over rated.

Yes razors are over rated...but after a few mods the can be great phones. What model razor do you have and what service provider. Some of the new razors like the V3x has a lot of probs I mean a lot. That phone was 4,000 dollars when the introduced it 2 years ago but they have a lot of probs with it the stores around here wont even sell it cause its so unreliable. I might be able to help if you let me know what model and service provider. And I hope you dont have a V3x.....

So have you done any mods to the phone at all.....new ringtones....anything....if you have done any of that have you master cleared and reset the phone btw if you do this it will erase your contacts and all your data on the phone. Let me know if that works or not I am doing some looking for you right now so I will get back to you.
