Default Calls go Straight to Voicemail

I recieved a Bionic about 4 days ago as a replacement for my Droid Charge which had automute problems. Whenever I recieve calls, the phone doesn't ring and goes straight to voicemail.
Am I the only one with this problem and is there a fix out there?

With the Home page displayed go to Settings | Sound
If Silent mode is checked un-check it
Select a tone in Phone ringtones

Yeah I did that the first day I had the phone and I have a pretty decent and consistent 4G signal. THe phone doesnt ring at all. The only way I know I received a call is by the notification indicating I have a voicemail.

Try going to a contact that you know for sure this is happening with.

1. Select the contact to get contact history and phone number.
2. Select Submenu (bottom far left button) and then select Options.
3. Make sure that under Incoming Calls, you do not have "Send Calls Directly To Voicemail" checked.

thanks for the help guys. Turns out when I switched from my Charge to the Bionic, it somehow activated call forwarding

Maybe they "Sly Dialed" you! I do it all the time when I want to leave a message for somebody and don't want to talk to them.

More details are at slydial.com but basically you dial a phone number (from your mobile phone), you listen to an advertisement, you enter the phone number you want to leave a message at, and the call will go directly to the other person's mobile voicemail.

It works great!!!

EDIT: You have a 2 minute time limit. BTW, I know some other "slicker" ones, besides this that I use. I can call somebody and make any number I want to appear on their caller ID.

Lol - yeah, I (can) do that via Google Voice :P

I opt to send my actual GV number instead, though.
