    I have the same problem.
    While everything else works ringing doesn't.
    Nor vibration either.
    Music plays well I can hear and reply to incoming calls and I even can go to settings and hear all my ringtones but not when somebody calls me.
    Please help because no Apple store in my country and my iphone is jail broken.

Did you check to make sure that the "mute" switch on the left side of the iPhone is turned off (if you see an orange dot, it means mute is turned on). It may not be vibrating either because in main Settings - Sound - you haven't turned on "Vibrate" when on Mute.

I thought my iPhone was broken until someone pointed out this to me.

SOURCE: iphone touch screen not working

You cannot remove the iphone batter like Fossildude suggests! Instead, try and power down the iphone using the PowerSlide on your touch screen which appears when you hold the power-off button on the top for a few seconds. If this does not help and you are a new user of Iphone, best is for you to take it to the nearest Apples store.

How do I lengthen the amount of time the phone rings on an incoming call?

This is not specific for the iPhone. It has everything to do with your provider. He decides when a call is put to a voicemail or when it is stopped. But most of the time you can change the time yourself, but please check your mobile phone provider how to do so.

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.

Phone won't ring in sleep mode

I had the same problem with my iPhone the only way I was able to fix it was to re-flashed the latest 2.2 firmware. Power phone off, power on by holding power and home at same time, hold power for ten seconds and then release still holding home key for another 30 seconds to put phone in DFU mode. Then plug into iTunes it will detect phone in recovery mode and allow you to re-image
