Droid X Ringer Problems?
I'm loving my X, but am wondering if anyone else's won't ring? When a call comes in, the phone will only vibrate. The speaker works... I hear the notification sound (for new voicemail, texts and emails), I can hear media and the speaker-phone works fine.
I'd be interested to know if anyone else has experienced this?
I'm assuming that I've set something wrong--the ringer was working when I got the phone on the 15th. I know this isn't a tech support forum, but here are the details in case anyone is willing to offer suggestions:
I've tried everything I could think of (and I did google it and search the forums, but couldn't find a similar DroidX thread). First, I maxed out the ringer volume using physical buttons. Then, I tried each of the following (one at a time):
In settings --> sound & display:
- verified silent mode is off
- verified ringer volume
- verified phone ringtone is set, and that I can hear the preview
- turned off "double-tap to silence" and "smart profile"
Other things I've tried:
- switched back from Google voice to carrier voicemail
- restarted phone
- pulled battery from phone (and left it out for awhile)
- have called the phone from numbers in my contacts, and numbers that aren't in my contacts
My system version is 1.13.516.MB810.Verizon.en.US.
I give my sincere thanks to anyone who is willing to offer suggestions or maybe point me in the right direction!

I had this problem and i actually went to settings turned vibrate on,then called my phone and it rang out loud and when i turned vibrate back to off it stayed working. Actually have to go to settings though. It didn't do anything when i turned the sounds off from the shortcut on homepage.

I have a similar but different issue. My phone ringer plays fine, but my text and email notifications play the first second of the tone then stop.
Ive done a factory reset... and im on performance profile. Vibrate is enabled for all notifications and works as it should.

I've had the same problem. ringer worked fine the first couple days. then stopped all together. I have reset the phone twice now. It has been working almost perfectly since. I'm still getting the occasional glitch...Getting a call from someone with a specific ring tone and the phone ringing with the default ringer. I was thinking of exchanging the phone for another droid x, but after reading the posts, I can only hope Motorola and Verizon will address the problem. At least we don't have Steve Jobs telling us "Your phone is dropping calls?...Don't hold the phone that way"

Umm this is a little different, but my Droid X plays a strange ringer [that isn't even listed as a ringtone in settings] when I receive a call. It's something like "boop-boop-boop-boop...boop-boop-boop-boop" and I've tried manually setting ringers to callers, creating my own ringers, switching the default ringer to a different one... nothing works. No matter what I do it uses this strange default ringer and it's incredibly inconvenient. Ive battery pulled more than once (feel like i went back to BB lol) and it hasnt worked. software bug, maybe?

Now though, it just vibrates. I've tried taking the battery out. I guess I'm going to have to reset it. Has anyone else had any luck with this?

I searched "all" the forums and found a couple of procedures that worked for some people. None worked for me other than the dreaded factory reset. Of course, for me, this involved a trip to Verizon store to transfer my contacts from my old S1 to my X. 1 and 1/2 hours...in the store...
