Recently my V500 stopped ringing with incoming calls - but on start up/close down the normal polyphonic chimes still sound so it can't be simply the speaker can it? Otherwise everything works fine and it has been a good mobile. I am in process of getting a new mobile but wouldn't mind fixing this one if it is hopefully a simple fault. Any suggestions?

Have you tried selecting a different ring tone to see if that makes any difference?

Yes, in fact I just double checked and no result - just the vibrate option - and it beeps away with every action as per normal but no ring. Does anyone know if all the sound comes through the same loudspeaker?

Problem solved! The ringer is a seperate little loudspeaker, and can be bought for around £2.50 on the net plus fitting instructions. Basically a t6 torx screwdriver is all you need and an ability to carefully dismantle the fiddly bits and pieces! So did I do this?     Well no - because I found a very helpful small mobile specialist and he did the job for me in 20 minutes - cost £13. So now it is good as new!
