Iphone not ringing

Hey guys. My iphone 4 is my first iphone so Im new to this. My iphone will be sitting right next to me (with full bars) and it wont ring when someone calls. I will see that I missed a call but my phone never rang. Also Ive noticed that texts will be delayed sometimes. Basically my phone is exhibiting symptoms of low reception when it is untouched on my desk with full bars. Any ideas?

Problem with iphone 5 not ringing

My iphone 5 doesnt ring when I receive a call. It worked fine until I turned the sound down the other day. Later, I moved the sound back to a louder setting. But it only vibrates with incoming calls and texts.  Ive tried powering the phone off and on, and Ive tried choosing a different ring tone. When I select a different ringtone, the phone plays the sound. But incoming calls do not ring. Can anyone help?

iPhone 5 not ringing when people call

I have an iPhone 5.  People are calling but its not ringing on my end.  No missed calls. Later I get voicemails.  Ive been on the phone with AT&T for hours 4 times yesterday.  Sometimes the phone will receive calls other times it wont.  They did a reset on ATTs side.  Sent signals to the phone etc.  I can send and receive text messages.  Is anyone else having this problem   I have an appointment with the Genius Bar tonight.  Before I go, Im going to do a restore on the computer and go to ATT and get a new sim card.  This is FRUSTRATING.

iPhone 4S not ringing no music nothing i.e no audio through speakers after ios 5.1.1 update

Hello Support Community,

I have an iPhone 4S 32GB Black that stopped sending audio through speakers i.e. phone not ringing, music, video, youtube and all Apps which output sound are not sending audio through the iPhones speakers. It seems nothing heard through speakers but if I plug in my headset jack everything can be heard through the headset. I have tried all the troubleshooting steps listed in the community i.e. restart, hard reboot, reset network settings, reset all settings, erase all content and settings, restore from backup, restore as new phone, backup,update and software using both iphone and through iTunes and the final step which I did was plug/unplug headphone jack several times to the iphone then tried a cotton inserted in the jack to clean but nothing worked for me. I have gone through the Apple Support Community and Goolge search but not much help received. Anyone of you had the same issue which you were able to fix it? Appreciate your comments/suggestions to solve my problem! Thanks.


It might be software issue I guess, probably the next ios updated should be able to fix this if Apple really take this seriously as I have seen hundreds of people are complaining the same issue.

Not Ringing on Incoming Calls

When I get incoming calls now, after the 3.1.2 update...suddenly my IPhone 3gs is not ringing.
It shows the pic of the incoming caller and functions as usual, but the ring tone does not activate.
I checked both my sound settings and ring tone and it comes thru loud and clear so the volumes up.
But I confirmed if I call my phone thru my home line...it activates the pic but never rings.
What am I missing...aside from all my incoming calls?

TS2802 My iPhone4 has stopped ringing



My iPhone has recently stopped audibly ringing on incoming calls and also does not provide any of the normal appointment tones or sounds and also the loudspeaker does not work. I have had to set it to vibrate just so that I can tell if I am receiving an incoming call or for an appoinment notification. Otherwise the phone works perfectly as per normal except for the ringer.

This problem seems to have started after I upgraded the software to the latest version


I have struggled for a long time not being able to make the ringing tone loud enough. I have tried making various tones but nothing seems to be very loud.
Is this a common fault or does anyone have a solution to this annoying problem?
