    i bought Nokia 3110 classic in last november. after using for few days i am facing a weird problem, i set my ringtone & sms tone to a custom tone which is stored in my memory card. Now some times it happens that the ringtone & sms tone changes to default nokia tone automatically (not changing the profile or removing the memory card). does any one knows why this things happens & is there any solution for this.

    N3110 is known to be a troublesome phone. Have u tried taking it to the Nokia centre ? What was their explanation? Maybe a firmware update might fix it.

    Please standby for further suggestions from board members. Some may have experienced the same with the phone and may respond to it. If no replies, then Nokia Care is the last hope..

    Moving the song to the phone memory will also induce the same error. Have seen it in my N3110c.

    this forum is priceless... :) i was thinking of going in for the phone... but its not such a major fault... but still i can get something better now.

    I would suggest to keep away from this phone at all costs. The phone also suffers frequent restarting when the memory card is loaded (say 700MB+ is filled on a 1GB card).

    Firmware flashing isnt helping it either.

    the problem is not only with 3110. this happens with my n73me also .. but rarely. this is a generic problem with most symbian phones. sometimes during a incoming call/sms, if there is a delay in reading the memory card for the set ringtone ... the default tone is played ... the coz of this delay is not known to me either. :)
