Check the top button (called the silent switch) on the top left of your iphone . Push it towards you so the red dot is not showing. Now try calling the phone.

I had the same problem.. Check the following first:
1) If ur default ringtone is a custom ringtone that no longer exist
2) For the number that is calling your iphone, check if there is an custom ringtone assigned for that number which no longer exist.

If all your switches are on....and your the ipod won't give sound either, go into settings, then general and hit the reset button on the bottom.

The obvious problem is the ringer switch, but something I just figured out on my phone was if you set an individual ringtone for each contact and no longer have that specific ringtone on your phone anymore the phone will only vibrate. Try looking through the contacts list and the ringtone applied to that number then make sure you have that ringtone on your phone. If not, more than likely you just have to choose another ringtone. Yay me!!!!!

Used to have the same issue of the NOT RINGING WHEN IN SLEEP but I downloaded an application called Insomnia from the utilities category in the installer application.
Iphone Its working now.
Might not be the correct fix but the phone is ringing when on sleep mode.
Hope everyone find this helpful.
Cheer to all

My slider was pushed back too. 'orange dot' was showing. harharhar. I didn't realize I was missing calls until last night i had all these missed calls. I thought I fixed it last night bc i 'changed my settings' but then i was sitting here and saw a flash..sure enough i missed a call. Luckily I noticed that orange dot. (forgot that lil option was there)

I had the same problem i tried everything. Then i figured out that i was after upgrading to 3.0 and had to jailbreak again. So i did not have the ringtones that i had downloaded before the upgrade that i had assigned to people. As soon as i downloaded the ringtones again problem solved. Hope this helps.

If you have an unlocked iPhone with customized ringtones (i.e. from Cydia), maybe you've set one of these as main ringtone. If you accidentally deleted it, your phone will not ring anymore. I hope it helps

Thank you dang Otter Cover! It's covered and was obscured turns out~saleslady put the cover on and I had never seen it didn't even realize a microscopic orange button existed...didn't recall anything in the fingertips about a 'profile' list like my Ericcson had~ tried everything in 'Settings' first. Expect to hear from me again when I try to fix what all settings I changed~

I had the same not ringing in sleep mode problem. What i did was used my back up phone and i turned off the iphone for a week. After the week went by I said i would give the iphone another try and it works normally. So give it a try, what do you have to lose!!....keep me posted, maybe I own a freak iphone.

SOURCE: iphone doesnt vibrate
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.
