    Did you also check that the vibrate button is switched up on the left hand side above the volume button?

I had the same problem: my phone wouldn't vibrate at all... I read a lot on other forums and found the following solution: If you turn the phone face down, and hit it on the metal side a couple of times (I hit it with just enough force not to cause it any damage) the vibrate will come back on. I almost didn't believe this, until I tried it.

Good luck to you all.

Check and make sure you dont have the feature turned off, also try a factory reset, their new software has a lot of bugs. After you get the reset done do a software update on the phone. If not take it back to apple that is a manufacturer defect.

My iPhone incoming calls ring but do not vibrate, but all other notifications vibrate correctly.


Strange. I would try resetting your iPhone. Hold down the home and power buttons until it powers off. It should start up automatically but if not just press the power button. This has worked for me in the past when my iPhone has acted strangely.
Don't worry about a reset or hard reboot. You won't lose any data or settings.

My iphne 3 will only vibrate but not ring


If you're missing incoming phone calls due to your iPhone not ringing, you may have accidentally switched the ringer to vibrate or silent, according to Apple. The switch on the left side of the iPhone turns off the ringer and usually sets your phone to vibrate mode, but if your iPhone's vibrate setting is also disabled the phone will instead be set to silent mode. When in the phone's sound settings vibrate mode can be enabled, and the ringer volume of your phone is adjustable.

I have 3g apple phone i can received calla but so sounds just vibrate


if you mean the phone doesnt make noise when it rings, check the ring/vibrate switch on the left side, and make sure that the volume is turned up all the way when it is set to ring. you can tell when you flip the ring/vibrate switch because onscreen appears either a bell, or a bell with a line through it. if that doesn't do it, you may want to see if your speakerphone works when on a phone call, because i'd say it doesn't and you have a hardware problem that requires contacting apple either at the apple store, or at 1800aplcare

I would try a system restore, plug your iPhone into iTunes and click restore, it will delete everything but once its done it will restore it to when your last sync was.

Iphone doesnt ring


Is the volume up fully (click on the volume buttons on the side)

Is it on vibrate? Very easy to inadvertently knock the sound switch to vibrate, which is located next to the volume buttons.

Hope this helps. Let me know if it doesn't.

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!
