Ringtone only rings ONCE!

    LibraSun , Jul 26, 2014 :

    When I receive an incoming call, my custom ringtone only sounds one time. So long as the call continues to ring, my OPO only vibrates (I have both ring+vibrate set).


    This only happens when I am using a custom ringtone (any .MP3 file I select from my Ringtones folder; both the folder and the file(s) are set to permit Media Scan).


    ♦ These are ringtones I successfully used in the past with my previous Android phone.
    ♦ Issue vanished and rings repeat normally when any built-in ringtone (e.g. Andromeda) is selected.

    Seems I am not the only person this has happened to (view other thread).

    May file a JIRA bug report on this issue, if one has not already been filed.

    I went ahead and submitted a bug report with CyanogenMod on this.

    I strongly suspect others have the same problem (but have not noticed it yet?).

    I have the same problem but no custom ring tones my phone never rings more than one time with any of the stock built in ring tones.

    Googling turned up the fact that some phones rely on a certain IDv2 tag being present on the .OGG audio file, which you can also add using MP3Tag, Audio Galaxy or other freeware:

    Namely, add a custom tag with the name "ANDROID_LOOP" and set its value to "TRUE".

    However, I've tried that, to no avail (yet). Meanwhile, I hope the guys at CM's JIRA board chime in!

    NOTE: Changing to a different custom ringtone indeed helped my situation, but only time will tell if it sticks...

    Same here, I just went back to my old phone, my OnePlus 1 sitting in the box, asked for an RMA, my RMA just sitting there saying pending approval, I was just asking for a replacement, but as bad as their customer support is I may just ask for a refund, this really isn't that great a phone. Yes it's less expensive, but I have another phone running CM on it and it is a lot more reliable, OPO is a cheap phone and works like a cheap phone.

    If this is definitive, and repeatable on your end, I would like to include your experience as a note with my existing JIRA bug report. May I?

    Had you at any point changed ringtones? if so, did you do so using external/custom audio files?

    Has anyone figured out how to get this dam phone to ring? I've all but given up on OnePlus for help, once they have your money there useless, no help at all, they are really looking like amatures with their poor customer service skills.

    Same for me, trying to selecting onboard ringtones, now with incoming calls is completely silent

    I too have the "ring once" then vibrate problem. I though it was something I did, but see now that I am not the only one.

    unreal, same boat as you guys. i thought it was a setting I was not seeing but apparently it's a software issue.. i want to like this phone but after all the crap we had to go through just to get it, non existent customer service, not to mention I also have the yellow band issue which they say its a feature and not a hardware problem, i can't believe I was duped by the oneplus hype machine.
