    My phone does not ring, it shows the imcoming call,
    when I answer it no sound, nothing.
    Also if I make a call I can't hear anything.

    I upgraded OTA, this morning. Ever ything seemed OK.


    HELP.

    It's going to happen again. Check out the link to the thread in this post where those of us on the leaked 2.1 have been fighting this thing. Take Caddy's advice and get a replacement.

    To summarize, we have tried several scenarios to try and replicate the problem but it seems to be completely random. I even went so far as to do a factory reset and run the phone that way with no apps at all for almost a week on factory settings and I still got the "silent phone" issue repeatedly.

    Now it is up to you, but others pain is your gain. Save yourself the aggravation.

    Best Of luck to you!!:)

    Thanks jayjay1122,
    I will try to reproduce it.

    It seems to me it happened after I set the phone to vibrate.
    When I tried to go back to ringer the phone was numb/dumb.
    This thing never happened with 1.5!

    Is this bug specific to 2.1?

    Same here as far as it not happening on 1.5. Nobody is exactly sure if this is a 2.1 bug specifically but it does at least seem like 2.1 "woke it up".

    Just don't beat yourself up over settings or thinking its something that is your fault.
