    Does anyone know how to get them back? I am not really sure when it happened, but my audible touch tones are set to short. I have tried each of the settings for that, and have also rebooted. I do get the haptic feedback, just no touch tone sounds.

    Just to clarify what you are meaning... Are you talking about the small vibration when you press a button (force feedback) or the DTMF tone you hear when dialing a phone number?

    I am getting the small vibration when I press the keys. It's the audible touch tone sound that you hear when dialing numbers that I can no longer hear. There is no volume control for those, but the menu/settings/sounds & display/audible touch tones should control whether or not I can hear them - I tried "Long tones", "Off", and "Short tones" which is where it currently is set.

    Hmmm...this is an odd one. I have mine set to Short tones as well. Mine work nicely.

    I am not sure what I could have installed recently that would have stopped it from working. I removed the Swype beta in case that was it, but no luck there. Just not really sure where to look.

    No, and neither is the media player. All of the other sounds are working. Notifications, etc. all working.

    I had the same issue. Just try turning the phone off and turning it back on. That did it for me.

    try downloading a program called Sound Manager.. and then when inside the program make sure all the volumes are up.. and then hit the menu button and select vibrate options and do "vibrate whenever possible". apparently this issue is a bug with the phone and this might fix it. worked for me when my touch tones and vibrate didnt work for some reason

    Thanks!

    "System Volume" at the top was the culprit. It was all the way down.

    WOW! Without this app, I wonder how that is adjusted.
