I have an unlocked gsm pre 2 running 2.1.0 firmware.
I've been having this problem with ringtone and alarm sounds for a while now. It happened both before and after a webos doctor, and are intermittent, I can not duplicate them at will. It's starting to drive me crazy.
First of all, the alarm tone. I have it set to play an mp3 that I put on the phone. I've noticed that whenever the phone is on the touchstone, rather than play my own mp3 it plays the default alert tone. I hit snooze and take the phone off the touchstone, and the next time it goes off it's the correct song. I can only assume that this is because of the touchstone..? I don't really know.
Second, ringtones. Again, I have set my own mp3 as my ringtone (Bananaphone, I just couldn't resist). Randomly, instead of playing my song it will play the default alert instead. When it does this, it also seems to show me the notification on the screen that a call is coming in long before the phone starts to vibrate or play any sound at all. I wonder if the delay is caused by the phone's inability to play the ringtone, and therefore it defaults back to the standard alert tone? I CAN NOT get it to do this when I call myself, so I can't really test it. When I check in the sound settings, the ringtone I selected is still selected.
Also, occasionally the phone won't ring at all, or vibrate, despite the fact that my settings are verified to be correct. I thought I was just not hearing it, but I was actually looking right at the phone one day.. the screen showed a call coming in, but the phone made no sound at all (nor did it vibrate). I ended up with a missed call notification.
Does anyone else have any issues like this? Were you able to fix it?? I can deal with an unreliable alarm, but I can not deal with an unreliable phone.. I need to know when I'm getting a call!
