No sound when receiving messages :'(


I have a blackberry 8530. It used to make sound(s) when receiving a message but it only vibrates now. I have done everything to find the problem. I have given up on this. Please help.

Along with checking/answering John's questions, If you haven't in a while try pulling out the battery and putting it back in. You'ld be surprised what randomly issues this fixes.

Check under profiles and then messages, make sure a sound is still set for your messages. It's possible the sound it used to make got deleted somehow as well. Try choosing a new sound If john's questions all have a yes answer, make sure you're not on the vibrate only profile.
