Questions and Answers

My Lumia 535 has no sound from incoming SMS and also has no sound from incoming call?

Lumia 535 has no sound from incoming call and incoming SMS. I have tried: I tried all the sound settings but nothing happened. I think it was caused by: Don't know

It is entirely possible to have all your settings on correctly but not hear a ring tone if you have your volume settings on your phone set way too low. On the Start screen press the volume up key repeatedly. There is a number indicator on the upper left hand corner of your screen that should tell you if the volume is loud. Turn the volume up and see if you can hear your SMS and phone messages then. This is simply done by phoning your cell from another cell phone, a landline or your personal computer.

Sometimes the culprit in this situation is having your call forwarding switched on. This would silence your cell phone but it would ring elsewhere. On the Start screen tap the menu item Phone and then go to settings. Find Call Forwarding and switch it to off.

It is also possible that you have chosen to play a ringtone that is somehow not enabled or not audible. Go to Settings and then tap on the ringtone +sounds menu. Open the ringtone list and find the ringtone with a check mark. This is the one you have chosen as your notification or phone call sound. Tap the play button to preview the sound and see if it is audible. If it is not consider trying a different ringtone and see if that is audible on your phone.

Neither my alarm or my phone are playing any ringtones that I apply?

Also if I try to play a sample of any of the ring tones or text alerts, nothing is happening. I have tried: I have tried to go into settings and find notifications but I don't have that listed. I have tried to find silent mode on my phone using the volume buttons but I only have vibrate or ring and vibrate. If I ring my phone it vibrates once and that is it.. I think it was caused by: I am not sure if I left an alarm ringing on my phone for a really long time as it was set to alarm late night and I didn't turn it off . Or I had a Windows update on my PC that affected my computer for a while - it froze and my phone was connected at the time and I couldn't eject it correctly from the computer.
