Can anybody's help?

Thanks in advance,

Can you hear the ringtone when someone calls ?

Have you changed the SMS notification file ?

Is the volume control on the side of the phone set to off ?

try the button(s) on the upper left of the handset. they control the earpiece volume. even if you're profile is on loud, but the earpiece volume is set to the lowest, the speaker won't work. (also applies to earphones)

Hi there,

I beleive that I have found a solution to your problem.

If you first dock you phone in the cradle and then using ActiveSync use the Explore function to browse the files of the phone.

Go into the folder named ISPM

In this folder there is a file called CEMAIL.VOL

This is the file, that is the problem. The file is corrupted. CEMAIL.VOL is the database file that holds data of incomming, sent and deleted message, suck as SMS'es and e-mails.

You cannot delete the file, the filesystem will not allow that. But you can rename the file. Rename the file to eg. 'CEMAIL.VOL.old'

Restart the phone and go into the 'Inbox'. Now a new empty CEMAIL.VOL is created on your phone. Restart the phone again, and you should be able to recieve messages again.

I hope that this will help you. Be awair that alle your earlier recieved messages will disapear.

I have done this to my girlfriends canary Orange SPV phone several times now. I fixes the phone every time. But as the amount messages recieved mounts up without being delete, it's just a matter of time before the database corrupts again and the procedure must be rerun again.

Sincerely

Thank you januskh.

I have a different solution than yours and I thought I'd post it up as well.

My problem was that my SMS notification would not ring. My HTC Touch 3G would ring when I had an incoming call or when there was a clock alarm, but not when I got an SMS.

I looked at your solution and connected my phone to my computer, but could not find the ISPM folder that you described. So I did this instead:

1. Connect the phone to the computer using the cradle or USB cable.

2. Put the phone in "Disk Drive" mode. No need for ActiveSync

3. Go to my computer and enter your phone, which should show up as a removable storage drive

4. Click on Tools > Options > View > Show Hidden Files and Folders

5. Click "OK"

6. You should now see album.vol

7. Rename album.vol to album.vol.old

8. Restart the phone.

9. Go to your pictures in the album. You may not be able to see any pictures that you captured using the camera, but that's okay.

10. Restart the phone again and go to your pictures in the album. Now you should be able to see all your pictures.

This is what worked for me since I couldn't find the ISMP folder.

Cheers
