Default Keypad tone stops working

Please Login to Remove!

When I dial the keys I am suppposed to hear the tones for each keys. One day it stops working.

I remove the battery and put it back it and then it starts working again. If this happened once then I can say it's no big deal, but I had to do this 3 times in one day.

Did anyone else have or is anyone currently having this problem? I'm wondering what the issue is here?

Btw, I don't have the latest OS upgrade. I think mine is a Tmo .42

Does anyone have info about this?

Thanks.

I dont know if the updated since then have addressed this issue, but i do know that someone else on this forum had this problem. The only diffrence was that theirs stopped working all together. You probably have a faulty unit and should get it replaced. If its under warranty you might as well take advantage of it. First thing i would reccomend to do is update the OS.

There were many small bugs in .42 OS. I would highly recommend upgrading to at least .64 and would even suggest upgrading to Cingular's .71 (package version .88). There are many links on the forums for instructions on upgrading. You can find the latest OS version for most of the BB models here:

For TMo's OS version try this:

BlackBerry Upgrade

If you get a message about the site being too busy, just hit refresh until it lets you in. It's a known problem with TMo's website right now.

The irony here is that many BlackBerry users would pay to have their dial tones stop working!
