    I would start with a battery pull if you haven't tried already, especially if it started out of nowhere.

    Very weird indeed...I will let the help team know and see if that can be resolved for you.
    I personally went right to 151 and never had any problems but we'll see what they say.

    Check you settings within the theme, if that doesn't resolve the ringer you can try a restore from you last backup. Let us know how things work out.

    From one of our staff members:

    The restore from backup may fix it though, if its not a hardware defect.

    OOPS: thanks Cruz

    I agree...if OS fixes didn't work, then it's most likely a hardware issue that will exist with any OS. Good luck to you and definitely keep us posted.

    ok, i just disovered that everything is being sent to my earphone jack, i got my music player and the video player to work properly with out needing eaphones but the pandora and the youtube apps can only be heard with earphones. if i have earphones i can hear the phone ringing, once i recieve a call i can go to options and either put on the speaker phone or the handset and it works fine, but as soon as i hang up it goes right back to the earphone jack, i can't keep it permanently set like the video player or the music player. any suggestions?

    When I had that problem they called it an OS issue. Now mine just fixed its self, There are two things I would try. I would wipe and reload your OS on the phone, or take it and get it replaced. If its less than a year old take it to a verizon owned store (corp) and they will replace it under warranty. I could also get mine to go back to normal by plugging in head phones and unplugging them
