My phone is on SILENT how do I get it off!!!

Hi everyone,

Just bought my new Nokia 1208 Mobile phone today and have received 2 phone calls which I didnt get because the phone is stuck on SILENT MODE.   Can anyone tell me how to get it off.  It says LOUD on the display which is what I set it to - but as soon as someone calls it - its SILENT and displays the word SILENT.  I live in Spain and couldnt the manual in English so Im hoping someone can help me with this.  Most grateful for a reply Jane

Give the power button a quick stab. That should bring up a menu on the screen to change profiles. I am not sure if this works on a 1208. Never used it before but no harm trying.

Hi Tiffanie,
Although I never used Nokia 1208 coz i own 3110C but i had a look at the specification of 1208. You can try any one of the following options or both & it might work

1) Go inside Menu -- then go to Settings --Profiles --Select Profiles -- Select General-- Select Personalise -- Inside that Under the option "Incoming Call Alert set the option Ringing -- Go back --then just above Personalise option there will be Activate-- Select it & get back to standby. See if that works.

2) Go inside Menu -- then go to Settings - Scroll down to Tones - Select - Inside that Under the option "Incoming Call Alert set the option Ringing go back to standy
Call on your phone through some other number & see if it works
