How do I turn the ringer on? Its working but no sound.

there are a few reasons that it may not be ringing. First is that the notifications volume and ringer volume have been set to have different volumes. You can check this by tapping on the apps button (default is lower-right on home screen) then go to settings, and depending on your version of firmware installed, (i have sprint galaxy S3 SPH-L710 running stock KitKat 4.4.2 and will attempt to post screenshots for guidance) there may be tabs on top labelled "Connections," "My Device," "Accounts," and "More." If you don't have these tabs then you should be able to see the Sound option. First check if the volume is turned up. Go to Soundc6a656f1-4791-4f87-9acb-e3be763a3278.png and then Volume 14d9b527-0149-4679-b7a1-eb5b0d735ed3.pngand check to see that the sliders are towards the right (my phone is on silent due to not wanting to disturb anyone as it's night time.) If they are, then press OK and check the ringtone is not set to a quiet ringtone or silent. 0ece8ac0-472e-4027-8341-04bc4779b666.png Have someone place a test call

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


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.

IPad won't ring when calling face time

either your profile is silent or your volume is down. whenever your profile is in silent mode/vibrate mode even if someone is calling you it wont ring. change that to ringer via settings and sounds.

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.

The phone won't ring. How do I make it ring? I have gone to settings, sounds, ringer and alerts. When I click on that, the phone makes a ringing sound, but when calls come in, it is silent. Please...

Have you checked the switch on the top left of the phone?
That's the mute switch. Flip it in the Up position and that should fix your problem
If the phones ringing when you test the ringer in the settings, the ringer works. It's probably just muted..
I hope that helps...
Thank you

My iphone 3g does not ring, i can hear the ring if i have on ear phones or an ear piece. the signal seems to be okay. the settings seem to be correct.

Dear Dburnett412.

If you can't hear the ringer when there is an incoming call to your iPhone 3G, you may have overlooked whether or not the ring/silent switch is set to silence the ringer. The ring/silent switch is above the volume switch. If you can see orange on this switch, it's set to vibrate. Switch it to ring and you should be all good.
If this doesn't help, you may want to consider resetting the iPhone.

Ringer is set at max but is hard to hear

If the ringout volume is very low, then try not to select a soft, silent or low ringing tone. Try to choose a ringing tone that is loud so that you can hear your phone ringout.
Hope that was helpful?

Can the jitterbug ringer be turned off?

You can set your phone to Vibrate or silent mode so that the phone vibrates rather than rings. With the phone on and open, look at the inside screen while adjusting the ringer volume using the rubber volume button on the outside of the phone. As you adjust the volume, the inside screen will display the ringer volume level. It ranges from Max to Vibrate. Simply turn it down until the level reads Vibrate.

If you would like more step-by-step instructions, please call our Customer Service department at (800) 733-6632. We are available 24/7.

Got a new Blackberry Storm and my ringer won't ring

Check either your profile or under "Options" -> "Sounds and Ringer Tones" and see if your volume is set to "Silent". Change volume to something other than "Silent" and see if your ringer works then.
