    Hi sNi

    As to why your Tattoo only rings once, I cant help you.
    But the android market is availabel through "all programs". Choose "market" and you are there:)

    Yes, my Tattoo rings 4-5 times, and that is also too little time, I mean, sometimes you put your phone somewhere, and when it rings, you have to find it first:p
    I dont understand why you cant find android market in "all programs", I think we have to rely on some clever guy in our forum:rolleyes:

    My Tattoo has started ringing just once too, I recently downloaded Handcent from the Market and wondering if this is causing the issue :-S

    Mine's starting doing this too, and I'm pretty sure it's only been since the recent Orange update. VERY annoying.

    Yes Huw, I hadn't thought about that as I've done the latest update on my phone too.

    HTC blamed driver conflicts and told me to perform a factory reset. I did, and the problem persists. However I'm still on the updated version of the software (the Orange-specific update) so a rollback would probably solve the issue.

    However, all HTC said was that if the factory reset failed, I should contact them to send the phone in for repair! Issues like these and the lack of Android 2.x are really annoying me. This is probably the last HTC phone I buy.

    Well, I gave them a call. Was put through straight away to a friendly chap but he couldn't help. He said check the Orange website for an update that might solve the issue, but there aren't any. He says if I wanted to roll back the software I'd have to send it in to HTC for a re-flash and it would take 7 working days. I declined; being without my phone for a couple of weeks would be even more annoying to me than the single ring issue.

    He had absolutely no information at all about Android 2.1 either, so I "left feedback" about how disappointed we Tattoo users are that we're still on 1.6 when everyone else seems to be moving on.

    I like the Tattoo but I'm sorry I signed up to a lengthy contract now. If the Tattoo never gets an Android update I won't buy another HTC phone.

    As well as the ringtone issue I've also noticed that since doing the ROM update if I make an out going call it seems to take ages before I get connected to the number I'm calling.

    Is the phone still showing incoming call when it is not ringing?

    If not the problem might rest with Orange in terms of how quickly the phone diverts to Voicemail as this is an operator set thing.

    No, the call is still coming in, but the ringtone is only played once - which is very annoying for those of us who use a "normal" ringtone as opposed to a tune.

    Just noticed I have the same problem with the alarm clock, it buzzes for the length of the alarm tone then stops but the phone continues to vibrate.

    I can confirm this. I've actually been using a longer ringtone for alarms so I hadn't noticed, but I just tried with a shorter one. Same issue. HTC have royally buggered up this update and I'm sorry I ever installed it. It only fixes one problem which I didn't even have anyway. :mad:

    Yeah I wish I hadn't installed it either. I'm starting to wish I'd got a windows based phone instead now as Tattoo can't receive WAP push messages either.

    I think I'd get on fine with a higher-end HTC phone, I think it's just we Tattoo users who are being shafted. Oh well, only another 14 months or so until I can upgrade... I think I might pay my way out of the contract later this year and go on to something else if HTC still haven't released Android 2.x.

    And just like that, the issue disappears. I can't imagine what I might have done to fix it, but suddenly my phone is ringing properly again! \o/

    Could it be that Orange have done a sneeky software update? Do you have automatic software updates switched on on your phone?
  21. Huw

    Huw Member

    No, that's not enabled. I have no idea how it happened. But it's academic now because the bug has resurfaced once again, and this time I definitely hadn't changed any settings.

    I give up trying to figure out this damn phone.

    In my Tattoo mobile phone ringed only once. I discovered after breaking my head and calling Vodafone and HTC that I used a 3 seconds ringtone which was called Old_Phone.

    So the phone used to ring only for the time that this happened. So changed the ringtone to a long tone and started to work again.

    Special mention to my colleague Elaine who discovered it.

    I bought my Tattoo completely unlocked while working in Dubai. Has the same issue of only ringing once. Completely frustrating. Is there any fix to this? Between this and the lack of Market I am totally disappointed with my first Droid phone.
