    You already also tried "Ghastly Headset" app, to see which "speakers" are active atm? Even if not using headset it can be filled up with dust and can act strangely. It's always a good idea to remove dust... from headset jack when having audio probs (dozens of threrads about it here).

    Ghastly Headset states:
    "Current Media Mode is: ? "
    "Currect Phone Mode is: ? "
    On top there is an app "Audio Switch" which can route audio to several devices (Headset, BT, Backspeaker...) perhaps try this an attach e.g. headset to see if ringtone comes trough there to see that software is able to play those files.

    Given the number of problems you are experiencing, sadly the best idea might be to find another Pre3.

    OK, since the phone fits my physical needs so well, I decided to purchase a new one to overcome all this. It is on the way. Would someone tell me in simple terms (or point me if applicable) to a wiki how to move my stuff over to the new one WITHOUT messing up the palm backup which is also attached to my touchpad via the same registration? What will I lose doing this and therefor need to copy manually?

    Many thanks!

    I had the same problem yesterday, so I deleted the usb partition and reloaded what I wanted it seems that too many pictures and too much music can cause the sounds to stop now the phone is working great.

    I had the very same issue if the files count in DCIM folder is over 100 all music, ringtones, videos stopped playing, and only some system sounds where playing.
    The solution is to get the files in DCIM folder below 100 and reboot.
    I fixed my Pre3 this way 2 times till now.

    oddly enough I discovered that independently by dumb accident ...to solve my issue I did go ahead & visit the dreaded doctor & prior to that backed up my stuff & cleaned house ...it did the thing you have suggested ...many thanks!
