    My G1 has stopped ringing! It will vibrate but not ring. If I set it to ring+ vibrate, it does not ring.

    This is true if I use the control panel (homepage/menukey/settings) OR use the RingToggle App.

    Any ideas?

    Volume... or Locale default kicking in...

    Turn off/disable any apps like Locale and see if that helps.

    Mine has done this exact same thing twice now. The only way I could fix it was to do a reset. If it happens again, tmo said they would replace it for me.

    For the record:

    1) yes, I checked volume and it was 50% or so.
    2) I restarted the phone and the problem persisted.
    3) Music (mp3s) would not play either
    4) I left the phone on charger at home all day today and a couple of calls came in during the day.

    When I tried it this evening it just worked. Key clicks were now heard, music worked, and it now rings as it should.

    Explanation??

    My phone stopped making any ring sounds also, and I've had the phone for a total of 6 days.
