    Phone: S5, Verizon (PagePlus), not rooted, version 5.0

    The problem: When called, the proper ring tone sounds for a very short time and then stops (sounds "funny" as it stops). Then, after a brief pause, it will go back to ringing again. This cycle repeats for as long as the phone is ringing. It has not always done this. Sorry, but I do not know the last thing I did to the phone before the problem started.

    What I have tried: I have tried restarting the phone, changing the ring tone, etc. with no effect.
    Thanks for any help.

    Thanks. That app works but it seems an app should not be required for the phone to ring correctly
    Here is a better solution for me:
    Bring up the "Phone" app and then:
    Menu button / settings / Answering/Ending calls
    Then uncheck the Using voice commands box. Done.

    On other phones it accessed via the main "Settings" icon

    Thanks again for your very helpful reply!
