When someone calls me the phone doesn't ring.
It's a quite frustrating thing that you miss a lot of phone calls because your iPhone doesn't ring normally. Don't worry, you are not the only one who are experiencing this iPhone not ringing problem as it bothered many people. You will see missed calls on the screen even though the phone is right next to you. Even if you are sure the ringer is on, the phone is not muted and you didn't hear any sound. Therefore, here are several solutions for you to solve the "iPhone won't ring" issue.
How to Fix iPhone Not Ringing Problem

Fernand, go into the Settings menu, and make sure the ringer is set to "on".
Pick a nice, loud and annoying Ringtone to alert you, to make up for all the calls you missed because you didn't have the ringer on in the past!
If it still doesn't ring, take the phone back and trade it in as it is broken. If you missed a setting, the salesman will find it and fix it rather than trade you a new phone for an old one, trust me.

You probably have silent mode on. Try pressing and holding the pound or the star key. One of those will probably release silent mode, so that whatever ring setting you have can be used.

Go to your settings, and then to safari, and clear the cache, and all history, and then do a master reset by holding down the home button, and power button until the apple logo appears. Let me know how that goes.

SOURCE: phone won't ring
Ok we have 2, and have had them for 3 years, so here is what it has to be unless its really broken. In the "settings" menu ther is a section for sounds, you can shut off any sound on that phone, the keys the on and off, anything. Look at the ring tone you have selected and see if it's on none, or if you hit the "airplane" button by mistake, that's the only two things it can be, otherwis go on itunes and back up your phone and do a restore. The update the firmware to the latest one, and restore your "stuff", if it still doesn't work, I hope it's still on warantee, because apple charges for everything once it off. I am really sick of their policys, and will be getting the new EVO now that we are off contract. They really nickle and dime you to death, and now your phone is obsolete every year with the 4th version coming out next month. It makes people feel like they were taken advantage of to come out with a new phone a month after they paid up for the current one, good luck
