    Finding a way to retire
    Not Deep Enough in the Woods
    I have read a couple of threads that touched on this ring issue, but was unable to find any that had a solution or work around.

    Since the 2.1 update and the OTA update, many times when an incoming call comes, the phone doesn't ring. If I happen to be in front of the phone, I can see the screen change showing an incoming call.

    If I am listening to Pandora Radio, when the phone rings, Pandora stops, but the phone never rings.

    If I am not near or looking at the phone this results in missing the call.

    If I shut off the phone and re-boot it appears to ring fine, but at some point later in the day or week it will quit ringing.

    I normally never turn off the phone. Should I start to re-boot every day?

    Has anyone been able to fix this or find a work around.

    I really appreciate ANY help, as having a phone that doesn't ring wipes out all the other benefits this Hero brought to me.

    Thank you.

    Search changing your "slot index cycle" in the forum. I changed mine to 1 and it works great!
