IPhone 4 no sound on outgoing or incoming calls


Had a problem on my iPhone 4 since last night my phone rings but when I answer there is no sound.

I cant hear anyone on other end.But they can hear me. When

Trying to call out there is no sound just silent. The sound works perfectly on loudspeaker and

On headphones. The mic and speakers seem fine.

Do you need to still be in warranty to use the genius bar?

I dont have a clue what to do?

Anyone else got the same thing?

Any help appreciated?


Mail notification sound sometimes doesn't sound on incoming mail

Every now and then the new mail notification wont sound when I get new mail. The badge alert will update, but no sound will occur. The volume is high and the mail sound is turned on in the sound settings. Normally the sound occurs within a few seconds of the badge updating, but occasionally it never sounds.
Ive noticed it for a while now, but Im not sure of the pattern exactly. It may only happen when Im running apps. Can apps disable the sound on the phone?
For example today I was in the Siri app, which sends you an email when you register. I was waiting for the mail notification sound and never heard it. I exited the app and saw that the badge alert indicated that I got an e-mail, but the notification never occurred.

No sound on outgoing or incoming calls

Just today my iphone 3g stopped working when I make outgoing calls. I cannot hear a thing. Same for incoming, cannot hear anything. The call is going through and the people on the other end can hear me. My speaker works b/c I can hear music. I have set it up to my computer and ran all the updates. Does anyone have any suggestions? I have a call coming to me from apple tomorrow. Hopefully they can help. I took it to AT&T and they did not even look at it but told me to take it to an Apple store. Well that is about 2 hours from me. Thanks for the help.

my iphone 4s does not notify me of incoming text messages

How can I stop my incoming text messages from going to my daughter's iphone

Incoming text Messages

From what i have gathered, there is no way to get a longer ringtone for incoming text messages. I am in the USMC and we all use text messaging as a work related form of communication. With the short beep, i tend to miss a lot of messages. Anyone know if there is a legit fix for this or if Apple has anything planned?
Also, where would i post this and a 1-beep ringer suggestion?

how to block incoming text messages

incoming text message alerts

I have posted previously regarding the fact that there are only 6 short lame sounds available for new text message alerts. No option to use legal ringtones that play longer and multiple alerts if missed. All my previous dumb phones had a large assortment. I followed the advice of someone responding to this and sent the request to Apple to add/enhance the alert sounds and never heard anything back. Has anyone ever recieved a response from Apple when they have sent a request for improvments/enhancments? Wondering if it does any good or they just file it away. Doesnt seem to be a big deal to add to alerts like for incoming phone calls for incoming text messages.

Phone a number from inside incoming text message

This is an important function that I had on my Blackberry. Clients or colleagues or directory services would sent me a phone number inside a text message and I could call that number with one or two clicks.

I finish my workout @ 7:30 I have to look at my phone to determine if there is a text message. is there an audible alert that continues to sound until I acknowledge the text message

Repeat alert up to two additional times for incoming text messages

Saw this in the update list and got excited, something ive been missing since my old samsung phones.
Im assuming by the use of the term up to two additional that its an option you can select somewhere. Just cant find where.... anyone?
Other than that no problems with 2.1 at all, but then didnt have any on 2.05 either.

annoying sound on sent text

I upgraded the OS on my new verizon iphone and sending a text, which was silent before, now makes a woosh. I dont see how to turn it off and Ive read a lot of discussions that didnt lead to a solution either. Anyone know if it is possible to turn that sound off (without putting the phone on silent).

Text Alert Sound

Hello, New Iphone 3G user and very happy with my phone. The text alert sound selection is oddly few and none of the options are really to my liking. Since ive discovered that adding tones is not possible (although you can add ringtones - non jailbreak) will apple be comming out with updated software that will allow you to do so (fingers crossed)? TIA

Wrong sound from Text Message

When I get a text message, my iPhone 4 (4.3.3) plays the default Tri-Tone sound.  However, sometimes when I have the conversation open and I receive a text, the phone instead plays the same tone I hear when sending a message...kinda like a swoooosh sound.  Its very odd behavior  and doesnt appear to do it all the time.


Any ideas?
