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 They really nickle and dime you to death, and now your phone is obsolete every year with the 4th version coming out next month.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

My setting for ringer is turned on, but my phone doesn't ring when someone calls me???


It could be that your selected ringtone is inaudible. Go into your settings and test the selected ringtone for calls. If you can't hear it, try another. Also check your ringer volume setting. It may be all the way down.

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.

My iphone will not ring and i checked the orange dot


Some users who have recently updated/restored to the new iPhone firmware 3.0 have reported to have got into a problem where their phone randomly doesn’t ring when there is a call nor does the keyboard or slide to unlock button sound anymore. I got into this problem as well after unlocking and jailbreaking my iPhone 3G with firmware 3.0, my iPhone suddenly stopped ringing on calls randomly, resulting in missing a lot of important calls.
So if your iPhone isn’t ringing sound on calls, or if you are unable to hear the keyboard or slide to unlock click sounds, then try the following fixes before you panic and call Apple support:
Fix #1: Push feature is currently not working properly on jailbroken iPhone’s. If you have installed an application which supports Push Notification System then try disabling the Push feature as it may solve the problem.
Fix #2: Try Resetting the iPhone: Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. This will reset your phone’s setting to factory defaults. Your contacts, calendars photos and any other data will stay intact.
Fix #3: There is a slight possibility that your iPhone’s headphone jack may have got some dust or rust which is causing the phone to think that the headphones are still plugged in when they actually aren’t. Try blowing out air in the headphone jack or try plugging the headphones in and out repeatedly. This trick may solve the no sound problem.
Fix #4: Restore/Update you iPhone back and start afresh: If the above solutions doesn’t help in solving your problem then you will have to start from scratch by first restoring your iPhone to the the original firmware
3.0 from iTunes, jailbreak it using redsn0w and then finally unlock(3G users only) it using ultrasn0w. This has fixed my problem.
Fix #5: Install Insomnia from Cydia: Install Insomnia as your last resort. When you press the power button on the top, iPhone goes into sleep mode after 30 seconds, in the process turning off your WiFi, sound and other stuff. When Insomnia app (available for free from Cydia) is enabled, applications will keep running and sound & WiFi will stay connected when the screen is off. This should fix your problem if all of the above solutions have failed to fix it.
