There is a very small switch on the left side of the Iphone, just above the volume lever. if it is accidentally switched down, it will be put on silent mode. Flip it back up and it should be OK.

You will also notice a bell shaped figure appears when you flip it up. When you flip it down, a line will go through the bell letting you know you have set it to silent mode.

Hope this helps

Scott

Why is it when people call me my iphone 5 does not ring, how can i make it ring?


Hi,

check the left side of your iphone and see if the ringer button is down then raise it up and increase the sound volume. Or go to settings then sounds and check the sound level. Else try to restart your iphone if it doesn't work then the problem might be in your iphone speaker.

Iphone stuck on silent mode checked the settings


Hi Mary,

There is a small silver slide switch on the top left.
Make sure this is ON. No red visible. This is the MUTE or silent switch.

Vibrate/silent mode button doesn't work


I have the exact same problem with my phone, and you can opt to follow a guide to replace the switch:
(http://modmyi.com/forums/general-iphone-chat/54281-how-fix-broken-ringer-silent-switch.html )

Or you can do what I did and put a little dab of silicon under the switch to hold it up and hopefully keep it in silent mode for you

I have a iphone 8GB and is on silent seen nd i don't know how to remove it on silent? pls can u tell me want to do?


To enable/disable the silent feature on an iPhone, simply look to the left-side of the phone. There will be 2 buttons there:
1. A small, switch that goes left/right. 2. A longer longer that can be pressed up/down.
Button #1 is the silent toggle switch. Moving it to the left enables silent-mode; to the right disables silent-mode.
Button #2 is the volume adjustment button which will raise the volume if pressed up and decrease the volume if pressed down.
Note: If you press the volume bottom down all the way, the handset will mute itself. When using the volume button, a volume indicator will appear on-screen to indicate how loud/quiet the phone is. If there are no white bars present on the indicator scale, then the iPhone is muted. Press up on the volume button a few times to increase the volume and disable mute.

My iphone will not play any ringtones either dowloaded or pre loaded when a call comes in. It will however play them if i click on them in settings on the phone


Make sure that its not in silent mode.

Silent can be turned ON/OFF by turning the Ring/Silent Switch up/down.
Here's where you'll find the Ring/Silent switch:

Take a look at it and if you see a small red dot, that means you iPhone is in Silent mode. Push the switch upwards to turn the silent mode OFF and to activate your ringer.

My 8GB 2g (Original) IPhone was unlocked and working fine. All of a sudden the screen froze and it will not unlock.


Hold the power button at the top and the home button at the same time until your iPhone restarts, if it does that again, you'll have to do the same thing with the buttons and you might have to restore it and upgrade it.

Silent mode button broken.


Dont try to take short cuts. They make make things worse. Just send it in to iphone recharge. They can open it and maybe fix it without any parts (cheaper).

Try iphone recharge.

No ringtone when receiving a call


Check if your iPhone is not in silent mode. Push the Ring/Silent switch upwards to turn off silent mode. You'll know that the silent mode is not on when you don't see the small red dot at the Ring/Silent switch which is located just above the volume buttons.

Take a look at this:

İPhone not ringing


you can actually move the button , on the top left hand side of your iphone, over the ringer volume, you will see a red or orange dot, this means the switch has you iphone in silent mode, I was stuck on this, until I found it is a actual switch, look at it closely, you can move it. So where you see the red dot, put your finger on it and move it the opposite way, and I do not mean press the button, I mean, flip the switch on it, then your phone will not be in silent mode anymore,,, this was very annoying, I hope it helps anyone that has the same problem.
cheers!
